Cross Stitch project day

Today I worked on my Noel cross stitch.  It's starting to come together.  It takes awhile to make any progress but that's ok.  I'm not in a hurry.

Another project which I liked but haven't done yet is this:

I might keep this in mind when I retire (ie, not the immediately future but perhaps in 5 years).  I think that it shows a lot of possibility.

After doing almost nothing all day except sit on my duff and cross stitch, obviously made me tired and hungry.  Doesn't it for everybody?  So what did I make?  I made the first dish that I learned to make on my own.  I can't even remember what cookbook it came out of.  It might have been Betty Crocker for Kids or something like that.  It's varied a bit over the years but tonight it is:

Thin pork steak (original recipe called for pork chops)
tomato based sauce which has sauteed green peppers and onions in it as well as various spices.

What are you having for dinner?

I liked your DIY idea of a shelf. I'll definitely try it cause I actually was thinking of doing a shelf n my room)
