Remember the flood that hit us all last September? When we thought it was all over, a new problem arises. We discovered that our water system is damaged. The pipes are leaking. The first month after the flood, our water bill increased. We though that it was due to the fact that our usage increased too. Then we learned that even if we are not using it, the water meter is running. Uh oh. And so to avoid unused water being charge to us, we have to turn off our water meter from time to time. I bought stainless steel drum so we can just store water on it.We would turn on the water supply for about an hour and fill the drums and turn it off the rest of the day. Good thing that after we complained about it to the house owner, they fixed it immediately.
Almost every year, every Christmas, I had this little project for the holiday, two or three years ago, I made my own decors (and still usable now). Last year, I made socks for the kids (my cousins included, 5 socks all in all). Every year it was tiring and stressing, I always ended up with so much pressure to finish it before the clock strikes twelve(cramming, yes). This year, I thought I am finished with it (or so I say last year) but I have Chico (and Dylan too) to sew (their Christmas socks). And now.. hours before the “twelve” the socks are not finished yet! Chico’s sock is done but Dylan’s not yet, good thing, his mom opted for a garland design, which will be a lot easier compare to last year.
My tools…and the finished socks..
This is the second year I will be giving this bags to our list.. not on the same people of course. Well, aside from this is a good idea for giveaways and cheap too, it comes with a cause. You can read it all HERE. Earlier, I went to the nearest bank to deposit my payment. I hope to have it just in time, my procrastination won, once again. Guys this bag is so cool and so chic! GO GREEN!
Of all the designs, this is my favorite..
