I managed to make the toffee and some peanut butter balls yesterday before sitting for the rest of the afternoon with my foot up on a pillow resting. Somehow I turned my ankle twice last week. Mostly it is fine except when I am up on it for a bit too long and then it hurts. I decided to sit out my walk this morning to rest it for another day or two to see if it gets better.
That did allow me time to finish the embroidery on the block and I cut out the parts. I quickly sewed them together with the machine after picking up Emily from school... and before going to pick up Aidan. That is a 40 minute window of time...
While waiting in Emily's car line - I finally pulled 3 or 4 rows out to get to the edge that someone (cough, cough, Peanut!) chewed on . It would never have lasted a washing with parts of the yarn chewed away. I got rid of the chewed parts, reconnected it with a knot and was able to add 2 rows back in. Must remember to put it up high when not working on it or find a different bag without openings on the edges for said cat to stand on the zippered part and dig down for the yarn and then chew it. Did I mention this cat loved to chew on yarn?
Time to make dinner - spaghetti and frozen meatballs, garlic bread from the leftover cuban bread and salad should tide us over until the ice cream party tonight at scouts. The girls have a secret santa gift exchange tonight.
