I didn't have a "great" night's sleep last night, but it was better than it has been in a while. The PX is now carrying fewer pillows these days, and they are all so flat as to be a joke!! I need a firm, yet not too firm, pillow to sleep on. And even if I have the perfect pillow, the longest it lasts is about a month before I "murder" it and it's no longer perfect anymore. Do not ask me how I do this, but I do! So we regularly buy pillows and I've been often spotted hugging pillows in the bedding section of the PX, trying to find something that will work for me. It's really a pain in the....neck. Literally.
So because I had a bit more energy, and a lot of work to do, I got busy right away this morning. I stripped and remade Bella's bed while she was watching Littlest Pet Shop on TV. It's on every Sunday morning at 8am and she is glued to it while it's on. I like to do her bed then because otherwise she hovers in the doorway, convinced I'm going to throw away one of her beloved treasures while I'm in there. And by treasures I mean crap/paper bits/junk. This way I can get it done without a nervous audience.
I also stripped my bed too but didn't remake it. I think we have half a dozen sheet sets, but only one is my most favorite, so I usually wait until it's washed to remake the bed. And boy, do I ever have a mountain of laundry to do too!!!! Towels, sheets, uniforms, clothes. Ugh! And when you have so much to do, it takes forever to wash, then dry, and then fold/hang up/put away. Poo on laundry!!!!
I found some new recipes I wanted to try online, and today we're having one of them. It's Tomato-Basil Lasagna Rolls! You can find the recipe HERE. Right after breakfast I made the pasta dough, and put it in the fridge. An hour later, after some laundry and making dessert, I sliced the dough and ran it through my much-neglected pasta machine to roll out pappadelle strips. It's now drying on the rack - so scrumptious looking!!
HERE. Gotta love Pinterest for finding new recipes!!!
Emmett and his Mommy had some photographs taken. I would really like to get some prints but the 4x6 prints are $14 EACH!! I'm sorry, but that is crazy expensive!!! I think I might just have to settle with having them on my blog.
Last week the new Stampin Up! catalog was made available online for Demos. We finally got to see the new In Colors for 2014-2016. I really like the new purple, but the other colors are sooooo close to colors we already have it's ridiculous! So disappointing. The catalog has some new tools and embellishments that look fun, but not too many stamps that interest me. More money for other things??? We'll see how I like it when the hard copy of the catalog arrives.
New In Colors
So now I will grab a quick lunch, swap out some laundry, and perhaps visit my Stamping Studio. I'd really like to PLAY for a change. All work and no stamping makes for a crabby Queen, lol! I hope you all have a restful, relaxing Sunday and a fabulous week ahead!!! Ciao!
