I've enjoyed a much needed quiet morning and am now having an early lunch before I head out the door to begin my work.
I'm having left over bean soup made in the crockpot w/ a handful of green beans thrown in and grilled polenta that my Dad gave me. It's very good!
I've been quiet on le blog lately because I've been editing and creating the newsletter for the one professional organization that I'm really the most passionate about: The American Academy of Psychotherapists. As of January 1, I will be the new Newsletter Editor, beginning a 3 year term of service. My very precious and dear friend Lex flew into town to help me as the current editor. We worked pretty nonstop all day Saturday and I worked on it pretty much all day yesterday. So I've not been able to get much knitting or crotcheting done but I will resume today.
I'm also very excited about another adventure that you may have heard me blather about on le podcast: Grammy is teaching me how to sew. Many moons ago, she and my late Pap Pap found a 1972 Sears Kenmore Sewing Machine w/ Cabinet for sale at the Bargain Box on Hilton Head. They got it for me and at the time, I did not have the patience or the zest to attempt to do anything with it. Well, Gram and I set it up on Friday and I've learned how to:
- thread a bobbin
- thread my needle
- oil the heck out of an old sewing machine
enjoy your Monday! Fru-out!
