Well, I’m a little behind on posting, but only by a about a day or so. The regular distractions came up, plus a death in the family has meant we’re on a quick trip out to Ontario. And we’re driving. So that hasn’t left a lot of time to write. So an unplanned vacation. At least we’ll get to see my grandmother this year. We didn’t think we’d be able to get out to Ontario this year. It’s just sad it’s for a funeral.
Other than that, not a whole lot for me to tell you about. I work my day job, and come home drained, and I don’t get to my craft area like I should. When I’m work, I can’t wait to get home to play with my hands making jewellery (or get into the sewing room—aka my room and sew), and then when I get home, I don’t know what to do, and end up doing nothing. I need to get up off my butt and do something, anything.
Mom is still working on her crochet. At home, she’s been working on a baby dress. When she’s in Mahone Bay, she works on an angel afghan.
I bought some supplies to try out embroidery now, too. You can call me crazy. There’s just a few things I’m interested in doing and making. That’s part of my problem—too many things to choose from. But the intention for this was to have something crafty to do when I’m volunteering at the “Hook ‘n’ Sea,” the craft and gift store in our little village where we sell some of our products.
I decided to volunteer because there are just a handful of regular volunteers, and one of them doesn’t really get any days off. I wanted to give her at least a few hours off. The only stipulation being that someone has to be back-up for me, as I am on call for my regular job.
Other than that, there’s not too much that’s new. Our five cats continue to make us laugh every day, even though they drive us crazy sometimes.
So, that’s just a little update. I’ll try to get in a better post in the coming days. But we’ll have to see what those days bring. Hopefully I’ll be able to publish a post next week at the latest.
If there’s anything you want to hear about, please leave a comment or email me your thoughts. I’d love to hear your ideas.
So for now, take care, and we’ll talk to you soon.
