In eighteen days I go back to work after being off for a knee replacement. In a way I am looking forward to it as I need to get back into a routine. Too much time on my hands has created a lack of motivation. You might say what, are you crazy. Its true though and I will be the first to admit that I need routine in my life. I get more done and am more creative when I live by a schedule.
One thing I did schedule for tonight was an evening out with my friend Jackie. We went to a Girl's Night Out at a local restaurant. My husband had told me about it so on a whim, we went. It was so much fun, martinis,manicures,massages, and lots of food including chocolate. We laughed made some new friends, saw some old ones, and just had fun. Scheduled spontaneous fun,who knew?
Tomorrow I am going to schedule some rug hooking and time in my sewing room. I finally got the wool to finish a bunny rug I have been hooking since February. Maybe I will cut some strips to take it with me to Sauder next week, I could finish it,or not. I also have a grandchild on the way and I am doing the nursery sewing under the guidance of my daughter. Its a panda theme so fabric coordinating is on its way because I already have every piece of panda fabric plus coordinates printed in the last ten years. She has been planning this long before the baby was ever thought about,so grandma has been buying fabric for quite awhile.
My husband works for Verizon, and we have been patiently waiting to see if the union was going to go on strike Saturday midnight. Of course the answer was not the one we hoped for. I try to find humor in everything so it was funny when he went to Walmart today to buy a chair for picketing respite. After I cut the tags off for him he wanted to know if I wanted to embroider his name on the back. Sure why not,he will probably want accessories if he has to picket again.
Still working on the pictures for the blog, have to meet with my tech support.
