There was a huge crowd. I think the lousy weather has lots of parents scrambling for activities for the kids. It was fun, but I was tired afterwards.
I have some cute photos of the busy crafters. I won't post them because I do not have parental permission. There was glitter involved for those who so chose so try to imagine.
It looks like the roads around town have been put back together. It is all patchwork style. We hope that the pattern of sudden heavy storms has finally moved on.
I have been struggling through the pants fitting class I signed up for on line. I am pretty close to having a pattern altered. I have a muslin practice that fits--and two others that do not even come close. I think that on line is not the ideal venue for something like this. It is true that I can go back and replay parts, but there are so many, many details to keep in mind and so many examples of the possible modifications based on individual figures that it is easy to get confused. If I ever get a chance to do an in person workshop, I will take it.
In the meantime--skirts are always nice.
We had a play date--the group of women that gets together for making cards and eating lunch. Did I show you the birds we made last month? This time we made flowers.
I have a new vacuum cleaner--a new Eureka, same model as I had before, the one that broke. The old one was under warranty, but the part was back ordered and would not be in until the end of August. The manufacturer told the repair shop that they thought it was reasonable to ask me to wait. I thank the repair shop for working to get me a new replacement. Of course now I will have to do something about those furry/dusty creatures living under the bed.
Mike and I went out for lunch today--a beautiful sunny day without oppressive humidity. Mike ordered fried clams--just wait until he has cardio rehab. I think he realizes this and wanted to sneak a last plateful in. I had a caprese salad and grilled shrimp.
I have been out of sync a bit and I realized that it is because my schedule has been so thrown off. There is the time spent in the hospital and at doctors' offices, of course, but there was also my own routine and I think that is more the key. I got to do my Friday vacuuming and all of a sudden it seemed like the universe has aligned itself once more. If I don't do the Friday vacuuming how do I know it is Friday? And if I don't know that it is Friday, how do I know what day it is on any other day.
The sun is shining, my vacuuming is done, and I had a nice lunch with my sweetie.
