Happy Saturday, bebehs! I have much to blog abt this morning!
Thank y'all so much for the love and light sent to my Papa. He's on his way back from Jacksonville today but has to go back again in two weeks for more tests.
Yesterday and this past week have been great. I've done NO working out! NONE. Here's the deal about that: I've been running non-stop since the first weekend of August when my cousin got married. In the midst of coming back, working for a day, and then getting to the beach, I returned to Columbia tired and frazzled. The beach was wonderful but nearly long enough. I came back to face one of the most hellish weeks in my practice of the year. So I was DONE...tired, ready to run away and join the circus. Add to that, my dear friend Lex flying in to help me learn how to do the Newsletter for AAP & it being a HUGE ass edition..it was bad, folks.
So I decided to take care of myself and get back some me time and that's what I did this past week. I rested, knit, rested some more and tackled my new obsession..and it's a knit..and I'm so excited about it but I'm not ready to share it yet b/c I want to do a podcast episode about it.
BUT..the highlight of my week occurred yesterday when Grammy taught me how to sew! Y'all meet Frances, my sewing machine:
Isn't she beautiful? She's a 1972 Sears Kenmore Sewing Machine. She has a bunch of cams, and the instruction book and I am amazed, honestly, that I can sew! Of course, I'm still timid but I follow so much better than when I attempted to learn a few years ago. Grammy helped me make my first EVER project:
