Wednesday J and the 2 big kids left for Memphis until Monday. I was like, "yay, I'll get so much done!". I didn't count on being utterly overwhelmed by their absence as if by grief. It only lasted about 3 hours, though. Then yesterday was the coop class, had to spend all day with my mom which was stressful even though she didn't really do anything wrong. Today I am supposed to help her car shop. Whee.
But I did accomplish:
So it is going pretty well, even if the house has basically failed to clean itself in the absence of the messiest children. I have been picking things up and they remain up, so that's something. Beginning to understand why children's books depicting evening routines include a "everyone pick things up" phase.
Today: cleaning. Clearing out some toys. Dropping off stuff to the thrift store. Going for a walk. Car shopping with mom (ugh). Then what? Library? Macy's to buy new underwear with that gift card I have? Plant nursery?
It is cool and cloudy today-- only a few days left of pleasant weather, and then the spike into the 90s they have predicted for next week will signal the end of carefree outside living during daylight hours.
I prepped some cyanotype paper for the class next week which I'll be missing. Had extra solution and so dumped it on a piece of plain fabric I had. A good square yard, I think. What to do with it? Too thin for patches, really. May do canning jars and small spoons and canning jar bands. Then embroider over it? Can I manage not to overexpose the jars and basically waste the whole shebang? I don't have any extra to practice with.previous next
