Rolling along

That was quite a list I made for us yesterday. Oops.

What actually happened today (not necessarily in this order):

1. Made 1,000,000 peanut butter chocolate kiss cookies. OK, it only felt like a million. I think I made 8 dozen but I lost count.

2. Made 2 batches of peanut brittle. No, peanuts were not a planned theme.

3. Made 5 dozen pecan bar thingies (see, a different nut).

4. Made the dough for thumbprint cookies being made tomorrow. Dough in frig being chilled. No nuts.

5. Hung 2 pictures in the living room. Nope, not on yesterday's list. This one was a bonus.

6. Reviewed the alterations made to Simplicity 4068 pants, adjusted pockets and fly to match alterations, doublechecked sewn pants against revised pattern pieces.

7. Cut new pants from olive denim. Sewed pocket facings to pants fronts, trimmed, pressed, and turned.

8. Watched DH's tape prep and ceiling painting at various stages during the day. (That's new ceiling paint in the pic. Wall paint tomorrow.)

9. Thought about painting the backs of the dining room doors but didn't actually progress any further than that.

10. Folded some laundry and put in another load.

11. Picked up pizzas for dinner.

12. Sent some email and cruised the forums.

13. Other boring stuff.

14. Blogged about it all and went to bed.

Good night!
