The 12th Friday of 2017

Hello, all!  How was the week where you are?  Mine, despite having started a little on the rough side, has ended quite well.  I was still feeling a little under the weather for the first half of this week: not a lot of energy, etc., etc.; but come Wednesday, I think my slump had passed.  Or at least I could feel like things were getting better.

I have many things I am grateful for this week, and number one on that list right now is my health and the knowledge that I have been given about it.  Everyday it seems I learn something new, and I know I am on the right track as far as that part of my life goes.  So moving on from that, this week was much more eventful than the last one.  We went on a field trip to the Discovery Park of America.  I have more than enough pictures from that day that I hope to show in another post, but for now, I will just post this one.  The weather spoiled things a bit, but it sure was neat to see the storm come in.

Also this week, the boy and I started on our last quarter of the school year.  I am in disbelief.  How has the tenth grade gone by so fast?  Words cannot express how I feel about this.  He’ll be moving out before I can blink.  The thought of that makes me sad, so I will move on to something else: fabric.  Fabric makes me happy and this week, I bought some.  I finally got my pattern in the mail and my material for that sew along I am doing.  I am a week behind everyone else, but it won’t take long to catch up.  This week I cut the pattern out, and then I bought some material for my wearable muslin, this cherry polka dot fabric I found at Walmart.

I think it will make a nice first draft.  Then, if everything fits alright, I will proceed to make another out of this dress balloon material.  One of two that I ordered that came in just in time for the weekend.  I can’t wait!  Sewing has been on my to-do list since the year began, and it looks like I am a few steps closer to making something.  Progress post to come Monday…

And that is all about what I have been up to this week.  I do still have some grading to do over the weekend, and I am sure I will squeeze it in somewhere.  I finally had the energy to clean house today, so I am happy to say that is taken care of.  One less thing to do this weekend – hooray!

I am off; even though the week flew by, I am ready to call an end to it, and a day of rest is calling my name.  Until next time…  Enjoy your weekend!

  1. I like the cherry polkadot material very much. Looking forward to seeing your new dress. Glad you’re feeling better. Wow hard to believe he’s almost done with 10th grade! It seems like just yesterday you were pregnant with him.💗💗💗
