What I did today . . .

So it's Monday again. Even though it gets a bad rap, I think it's usually my most productive day all week. :) So I like Monday's. Today I took my car in for an oil change/warranty work, picked up my sewing machine from the shop, made Chicken Pot Pies for a couple dinners this week, sewed a valance for my kitchen window, ran errands, mailed annoucments for my hubby's graduation (yes, they are kinda late...but better late than never right?), blogged and unpacked more boxes. (Yes, there are still more to unpack too...I told you we have a lot of stuff!) :)

So, all in all, it's been great today!  I always feel so accomplished when I can cross that many things off my to-do lists.  Don't you?  Maybe you don't make to-do lists.  I have to!  I have occupational add, or that's what I call it...since I have so many jobs (Substitute Teacher, writer, photographer, blogger, etc....) it's hard for me to keep track of things as it is, even with a list, so what on earth would I do without one?
The retro fabric I used!

 I made it with some reproduction retro turquoise (my favorite color) fabric.  It has a cute retro design on it too.   Didn't turn out too bad for my first Valance, eh?  :)  Oh, and funny story about the rod.  I'm a capable woman, right?  So I thought I would put up the rod myself.  So I got the drill out and drilled little pilot holes.  Then I put the screwdriver attachment on the drill and started screwing the brackets on...anyway, it turns out it's harder than it looks and I guess I may not have made those pilot holes big or deep enough, because I couldn't get the screws all the way in.  So that's why the sides look a little odd...  No worries though.  My hubs can fix it when he gets home.  :)  At least I can see how it looks up there for now.  :)

Ok, update on the curtain rod deal.  It turns out I was doing just fine.  I did it all right, except I hit some metal in the wall, that it wouldn't go through.  So my hubby moved the placement a bit and got them in just fine.  :)  My kitchen is now also homey!  Love it!
