Oh, what a heavy week it's been. So much at the top of my mind. So much thinking. A black hole, ready to suck me in. So, today, I'm going to focus on the good stuff.
First good thing is my new clothespin bag. I needed one. Not that I hang my clothesline very often, but, just keeping everything together was a problem in my sewing room. I needed a package. I looked at several patterns on the internet and they ranged from way too basic to way too cute-sie. What I wanted was plain and functional. So, I sat down with pen and paper one morning and this is what I ended up with. It's very functional, but it could be a bit cute-sier, eh? It's also not quite deep enough. I'd like it to be 3' deeper. But, I might not want that three extra inches bad enough to remake it. If I don't remake, I'm going to add two button holes and two red buttons to keep the front closed when not in use.
And, I wanted to show you guys that have been encouraging me so to use my dishcloths that I am. Here's the first one in use. Rob says he won't touch it for fear of staining it. I warned Sydney that the first time I saw her aim it at something red or dark brown...
But, it is more durable than I thought it would be. Holds up well. It's heavy, but it dries fast. Doesn't stain easily. All in all, I'm happy and am ready to put another one into rotation.
Last good thing is today's visit with the periodontist. I want my tooth back. I really miss it. And, we're supposed to be able to do the next step soon. I'm ready. But, I'm also having a bit of pain on the other side, where he did the second bone graft and I'm ready for him to make that go away.
Tonight is Sydney's game against their toughest opponents. This is the team that actually roughed the girls up in last year's basketball game. Thank goodness volleyball is a no contact sport. I hope it goes well. The game is all the way across town, so there's no avoiding 5 oclock traffic, but Rob and I are going to meet early and have dinner, so I'll only catch the very beginning of it.
