What a busy day! I had plans for a different blog post today, but well, life got in the way. So for a bit of fun, here’s a day in the life of Cook Clean Craft. It’s not a typical day, there’s no such thing around here, but it was definitely full!
The day started with a walk to school in the rain:
It wasn’t too cold, and my kids’ fun umbrellas makes me smile! I wish I had one. (Un)Fortunately, I have a trusted navy blue umbrella since uni days. It’s survived all sorts of crazy, wild and woolly weather. As boring as it is, a reliable umbrella is hard to find, so I can’t give it up.
I realised yesterday that my niece’s birthday is next week. I better get organised and sew something. Red’s her favourite colour, but is sadly lacking in my fabric stash. A trip to Spotlight was in order! I got there a little early, but wasn’t the only one:
Fabrics were purchased:
Then the grocery shopping was done. Thankfully, it was a happy experience with the 3yo in tow (but a typical girl, she’s usually happy when shopping!). And the kind checkout lady may have given me a few extra Jamie Oliver stickers for our collection:
Time to head home to unpack groceries. After that, there was another job to do before I could start sewing:
About 12 days ago, my Mother-in-Law dropped off Herman, the sourdough cake starter. A couple of days overdue, I finally cooked him up:
With a photo-bombing box of teabags that just wouldn’t put itself away, from the grocery shop. He was delicious for afternoon tea!
A loaf of spelt bread was made too (but somehow didn’t get photographed). And a big mess was made in the kitchen:
Stuff it – that can wait till dinner time. Let’s hit the craft room:
Hmm, my craft table is a disaster (as always), but about a third of it was clear – just enough space to get cutting. I had to deal with fluffy obstacles under my sewing table like this:
And after school pick-up, the kids may have entertained themselves by doing this:
But aren’t they playing nicely together!
Sewing went smoothly enough, with only one use of the seam ripper. It got a nerve-wracking towards the end as my thread was running out. When it was all done, my spool looked like this:
And the bobbin was about the same. Phew!
Time to make dinner. After such a busy day, I needed an easy meal – Nachos!
And while Dad is doing the bed and bath routine, I’m finally sitting down for a rest (and to blog).
I’ll show you what I made next week (after my niece’s birthday)!
What did you get up to today?
