Let's see....the barn got cleaned this AM before school. Only took the kids 1 hour - and that includes all the griping and complaining. :snicker: *I* was going to help, but Herself opened her big mouth to say that SG was *lazy*, and it wasn't fair that they had to do something just because of that. Ummm......NOPE. I promptly declared myself "lazy" and made HER do all the wheelbarrow hauling. :grumble:
Started acquiring Hannukah prezzies......I already have the color e-readers; today we nabbed 2 iPod shuffles (LOVE eBay. LOVE it!). That way, *I* don't have to listen to their music choices (Himself just found - and downloaded - the Portal 2 soundtrack. :sigh:) We're looking at getting new bikes for them, too....that'll be 3 gifts down, 5 to go! :lol: (The remaining ones will be smaller - MUCH smaller. Like, origami paper, books, that sort of thing.)
Yesterday I got the rest of the fabric cut for the quilt. ALL the blocks are in their own ziplocks; now I just need to turn the squares into triangles and start piecing. Fun stuff......:grin:
I don't get the calendars - Sukkot is supposed to start ON the Full Moon. My widget says that the full moon is in 6 days.......which means that YK, which is 5 days BEFORE Sukkot, has to start tomorrow, right?
Well, my Jewish widget says that YK begins Friday evening. My calendar (printed off from a Jewish site) says that YK begins tomorrow evening. According to the moon, it needs to begin THIS evening. :grrrrrr: (According to when we celebrated RH, it HAS to begin this evening, as well). We're keeping it tomorrow.........:sigh: So, radio silence here...and no school or work, either. Critters have to be tended, but that's it on the "work" front. I won't be quilting or knitting, either, just because. :nods:
Speaking of, I need to get some work done. Laters!
