Where've I Been?

This is the first post I've made all week.  I've been really busy at home and with my volunteering jobs, and I'm just plain pooped.  When I got home this afternoon, Hubby and I decided to go out for Mexican food, and it was delicious.  We used to live in San Diego, and Mexican food was a given anywhere.  Here in Maryland, it's a lot more scarce.  We have a place called El Azteca that we have gone to a few times, although it's more than a 30 minute drive from here in Clarksville.  However, it was well worth the drive - for the Margarita alone!  Both of us ended up with leftovers to bring home, so that's always good to look forward to.  Besides, I try to cut back on the calories by only eating about half of what I order in restaurants and having the leftovers the next day or so for lunch.

One of the projects I worked on all week was reorganizing my craft room cabinets.  I had already redone the rest of the room, but wanted to pull out all the things that were in the wall cabinets to fit them better and to sort out what was in them.  (I also went through the desk drawer and reorganized it as well.)  It was really a big task, but I have to say I'm thrilled with the end result.  Now I know exactly what I have on hand and can find everything very easily.  In the process I put together a large bag of donations for Goodwill and threw away other things I didn't need.  Now I'm all excited about doing some projects.  I have some sewing I want to do, also some mending, and plan to start working on some assemblages this weekend.

One thing I've been neglecting lately is my reading.  Book Club is this coming Monday, and I haven't even started the book!  I feel badly about it, but I usually read when I go to bed, and I've been so tired lately that I haven't been reading at all.  Now I feel guilty.

This picture is of 2 of our great-grandchildren, Kayla and her new baby brother Gabriel Brendan, who was born a week ago.  They are in Connecticut.  We haven't seen him yet, but this is a photo from the family's Facebook page.   We have 9 great-grandchildren now, and the 10th will be here in about 6 months or less.
