A New Week...

Whew!  I am so happy that this past week...the week of the lazy over!  I did feel better after reading a few comments and emails about my last post...and decided it was just a recharge going on.  So.  Now I feel rejuvenated and am rarin' to go! 

I got my sewing area set back up again this morning...had it all cleared away when I had company here 2 weekends ago.  And, I got out some fabric that I will use this week.  That's all I'll be doing on sewing-related things for today.  I need to do laundry and run a few errands and get some knitting done.  


Watching tv the other night...just kinda vegging (norm for last week)...and Tag decided that he needed to curl up next to me in my big easy chair.  He does lay next to me on a regular basis, but he normally stretches out...back end on the chair and front half on the ottoman (that is pulled up close to the chair).  Granted, it is a chair and a half, but he is a big dog...makes me laugh.  The yellow in the bottom corner is my pajama bottom...the pillow corner that is showing is laying on my lap. 
 He is a funny boy.  Definitely knows what he wants.  


Remember when I was making strawberries for the pincushion swap?  Well, I had some leftovers.  I gave a few to my company last weekend, and still had some left.  Mostly red ones.   I looked around for a suitable container to keep them in...but had nothing here.  But, oh my gosh, when I was at the grocery store, I saw the perfect jar!  It's the Bonne Maman strawberry preserves jar!  And, I gotta say, the preserves were the best I've ever tasted!  Perhaps even better than homemade.  

I need to make a few more strawberries to fill the jar, but here's what it looks like now...

I scrubbed the ingredient sticker off the back of the jar so that the strawberries can be seen better.


Tonight is a big television night...DWTS, The Voice, Hostages, The Blacklist and Castle.  I typically watch DWTS and Castle and have the others recording on my dvr. 

What is your fave Monday night tv program?

I am so glad you are feeling better. I love your jar of strawberries. That is so cute.
I cracked up at your list of shows.
I don't watch a single thing on Monday night, I know what those shows are but have never seen them. Have a fun night, Very cute picture of Tag. Dogs are just the best.

I love your jar idea, that is so fun. I watch one and record the others. I like being able to watch programs and pause when I want, and no commercials, but I think I waste a lot of my sewing time, stopping to go through the commercials;)

Love your jar for the Strawberries. Now I want to eat strawberry jam and make strawberries.

Monday night I DVR The Voice, DWTS, Castle and Blacklist. However, I usually watch The Voice and Blacklist. I just want to see The Voice as it is this show. Blacklist has captivated me...and scared me. I think DWTS is very good this year and I like the new format. Castle is still a favorite.
