I looked back and I've featured a shirt or my apron in the last 5 posts. Gonna be the same today. I"m also getting a lot of housecleaning done and last weekend, I sealed all the grout in the kitchen tiles and it looks tolerable again. Still looking forward to a new kitchen, but it's part of a lot of other decisions, like do we still want to live in Texas, so it's "on hold". We had a conversation about it yesterday. An honest conversation that set the tone for the day. We had a great day, laughing and watching TV and a trip to the grocery. It's always good to be on the same page. And, we may have made a new plan. A plan that gives me what I want without spending a fortune that we'd regret if we move in a couple years.
So, the yoke for Syd's shirt became a very frustrating story on Saturday that ended with me ordering another yard of fabric that will be here later this week. But, I was in the mood to sew, so I pulled out a piece of fabric I bought for myself and started cutting. I was hoping to finish this weekend, but there were too many other things I wanted to do, so I only got this far. The side and underarm seams are just pinned. I'm glad I did. I'm not struggling near as much as I was with Syd's shirt. It will be good to have one under my belt when I get back to hers. It's so much easier to sew for me. I'm right here to try it on every step of the way.
I love olive green.
It's so hot out. I know it's been hot everywhere the last couple weeks and at the rate the climate is heating up, I worry about how many more summers until crops start to fail. My Dad was telling me this weekend that they had 100* days when he was a kid. My grandfather walked through snow knee deep to get to work. But, those were anomalies. These extreme weather conditions are becoming the norm and we should all be concerned. This squirrel has it figured out. He laid there the whole time I was having lunch, not feeling threatened at all. It's better than him laying in my flowerpots.
To win, the Democrats don't need money. They need message. Every hour of every day, there should be a news conference by a different Democrat, explaining the lies and demanding the truth from the deniers until they've all been shown as the frauds they are. But, we're not. We're acting like ladies and gentlemen because that's what 80 year old politicians do. It's time for young people on the Hill. The Ds also need to give up on some of the ridiculous controversial bullshit and focus on doing the people's business.
So, yeah, blaming both parties, because I don't think either one is representing us.
Everybody have a great week. Find something you love and do the hell out of it, but remember to stay cool and hydrated!
