This weeks themes are Completing, Visiting, Repeating, Writing, and Scheduling.
Or rather not-completing. My sewing room overhaul is slow going at this point because I have so many projects going on. The goal is to get rid of that big IKEA shelf. Not shown is a smaller bookshelf full of fabric that will replace it. What’s left there is crates of notions and scraps I want to save. It’s the notions that will take most of the time at this point as they are small and you can cram a lot of them in a crate. I have new small clear storage in different colors and chalkboard labels for them. Elastic, buttons, zippers, ribbons. I hope to at least have them labeled and stuff going into them by next week.
Planning a big visit home to Arkansas for spring break (mid-march) We will need to board the pets. I am right now looking into potentially sending them to a two week board and train program (doggy boarding school) and have that overlap the trip. I feel like I have failed these dogs from a training perspective.
Robin is our puppy but she is almost a year old now. We had two dogs for almost 20 years that we lost of old age in the year before we got her. With them we were young and had no small kids when we got them. We went though all the classes. They were trained well. I thought I could take that knowledge and train her at home because we do not have time in schedule for classes. I have not been successful with even getting her to sit. Huge mommy fail. Luckily she is a sweet dog and doesn’t have a lot of behavior problems but we would be able to include her in more things we do outside the home if she had schooling =)
Jasper is our rescue we got to help with puppy Robin when she was small and hyper and needed a playmate. He’s a couple years old and has had some training. He walks on leash well and follows basic commands. I would mostly send him for a refresher and so Robin won’t be lonely. Love my puppies.
Bimaas! I have been on a bimaa making streak lately. I have had the pattern forever. I love the look but I had not gotten around to making one in the few YEARS I’ve had the pattern. You will see the one I made for my daughter on the blog tomorrow and I have one for a very special guest post I’m doing next week. The rainbow one above is going out in the mail to my friend’s son. She is an amazing photographer in the St Louis area so if you need photos you should check her out! If we are lucky she will share a modeled pic with her adorable son with us. No pressure Crystal 😛
I am really loving this Sunday morning blogging. It fits in well with the Sunday morning routine I already had. When my daughter was born I made a deal with my husband that I would get up with her in the mornings on weekend days and let him sleep until 8:30. In exchange, I would get 9-11 to lock myself in our room for two hours. On Saturdays I might sew, or nap, or dye my hair and surf the web. My Sunday routine always starts with reflection and then goes to planning for the week (Schedule, Sewing, Meals, Grocery lists) when I am done we get ready for brunch and then go grocery shopping. Sunday Lately is a great fit for my reflection portion =)
Posts! Like Woah! I took a bit of a break through the holidays. I did some crafting. I made several things I did not blog, Bad Starly! 2016 has started off with a bang though. I have so many projects going on right now! I have been sewing up a storm, photographing, and scheduling posts. There will be a lot more going on here in the coming days, watch this space =)
