1. Happy Labor Day! I’ll start laboring at the foot of Mt. Washmore in a few minutes but for now I’m enjoying a quiet morning, a second cup of coffee, and the peace that comes from knowing that I won’t have to drag three unwilling subjects to school.
I’m feeling a little better thanks to the crackhead Sudafed I’ve been taking. It has made me a little spacier than normal as evidenced by the fact that I just spilled a glass of water all over my desk because I misjudged the distance between it and my hand but, otherwise, it’s all good.
2. Speaking of clothing, which we weren’t, I’ve got on my white capris, Piggly Wiggly t-shirt, and flip-flops for the last time this year.
Killing my wardrobe staples year after year.
3. I’ve been crafty over the long weekend. I finally got around to attaching the collar of the tunic top on the sewing project I started weeks ago. You know, the “sew it in a day” one? Yeah, not so much.
Here it is before I attached the sleeves (and I was in a bit of a panicky mess because that’s not really what you would call a SKILL) and even Heather suggested I might want to wait until she got home to help me but I PERSEVERED and figured it out all by myself.
And you may wonder why I’m not smiling in the last picture.
It’s because it took me THREE HOURS to persevere and I should have left the sleeves off because apparently I have very broad shoulders that I didn’t account for and when I attached the sleeves, the shirt became VERY form-sitting and I cannot raise or twist my arms to any degree of comfort BUT I FINISHED THE DING DANG PROJECT and that makes me happy and as long as I walk erect and make still, small motions, no worries.
4. Speaking of good, I forgot to mention that I had a wonderful time at coffee with Kellie last week. We chitted and chatted and then decided to take ourselves to Michael’s where Kel picked out yarn for a project.
BECAUSE SHE CAN ACTUALLY FINISH THINGS SHE STARTS.
And can we talk about how wonky my leg looks and how straight and tall and elegant Kellie looks?
Why do I turn into a cheeseball when someone brings out a camera?
5. Have a nice day.
