I don't know anyone would call Thursday my day off, "a day off." It is far from it! I think this is first time I have really sat down since I was in the dentist chair. I did the weekly cleaning and started cleaning out more the lower cabinets since we got the mouse. We continue to set the traps just in case and will for the next week. I truly believe there was only one because Buster seems much calmer. We found all the dog food in the drawer of the stove. If mice weren't so icky, it would be really funny. I have been taking things out of the cabinets: baking dishes, mixing bowls, pans, tins, and cookie sheets...that kind of stuff. Running them all through the dishwasher, then once the dishwasher is going, dashing off to the next errand. I have been to the Dentist twice. First, I messed up and forgot I need to take an antibiotic before dental work since I had my knee replaced. My appointment was at 9 but got switched to noon because of the antibiotic thing. Second, was going back to have my teeth cleaned and finding out I need a cap. I did know that was coming for the last 17 years when I had a root canal done. I also went to the grocery store and a place to get Bob a birthday present. It is his birthday on Sunday. Later, this afternoon I took my mom to a doctor's appointment. Back home again to clean some more.
Now on to the good stuff. I finished the small from Autumn Splendor. I did the pin keep. I must have a thing for pin keep/pin cushions. I should blanket stitch around the felt coins but, don't think I will.
I painted the pencil box with brown paint and finished it with Briwax. The stain from the Briwax gets into the grain and makes it look really good. It also gives it a beautiful sheen.
