How to eat after going to the dentist

I took DH to the dentist today and he can't really chew for a couple days. I made our supper's salad in the blender:

4 big pieces of leaf lettuce, cut up
1 large tomato, cut up
1/2 apple, cut up
1 Tablespoon frozen, chopped onion
1 Tablespoon Italian dressing

Blend until liquid. Pour into large drink cups (14 oz. with handles, is what we have). Serve with a spoon (for when you get to the bottom). It tasted better than I thought it would, but at least we each "ate" a whole, large salad. I like to eat fresh food for the nutrients and enzymes.

I also pureed the contents of a can of clam chowder, poured into mugs, nuked for 2 minutes, and served with oyster crackers. That was supper!

Good-bye to Winter!

We had three days last week with a low temperature of 30 degrees or less. It was so cold that I can almost run around the block without stopping more than Marco requires. I am so "over" Winter and am glad to have good weather this weekend.

I actually sewed some last week. Aside from mending, I also made two pillowcases. I found two old kitchen towels, and they are being sewn together to create a tote bag. I am in "tote bag" mode, and want to improve my tote bag pattern to make it easier and faster to make.

I did some sewing today!

DH helped pin the tabs to the curtains and I finished them. The old curtains need to be taken down and the new hardware needs to be installed to hold the new tab-top curtains.

I also finished the Kwik Sew 2467 undies using fabric left over from DH's Kwik Sew 2417:
From ks 2417

From ks 2467
Then, if that weren't enough, I mended the hems on two of his T-shirts, and I'm getting ready to shorten some lounge pants I got at a thrift store a while back. I also wouldn't mind if I got started on some more pillowcases.

Stay Tuned!
