Things that made me smile today.....
- spending time with Olivia
- hearing her say "Olivia can help make Nicolas' lunch"
- this gorgeous weather
WOW, what a gorgeous day. My hydrangeas are in full bloom, and the sky is such a beautiful shade of blue, with not a drop of humidity anywhere. Wonderful. It could stay like this all summer. The temperatures are supposed to reach 90 today, but when the humidity is not there, it just feels a heck of a lot more comfortable.
I am so happy that my plan to do more sewing this week is really working. I thought for sure, I would agonize over every little cookie crumb, but I have managed to keep the scales balanced. Now all I need to do is work on getting more sleep. I just cannot get myself into bed before midnight. Frustrating. I have to work on it. The kids need me early in the morning, but I so love my time alone at night. It is so peaceful and relaxing. Of course, I want my cake and eat it too! HA. The last ensemble was for my shop and not for Olivia. I wanted to try something a bit more boutiquey! Personally on Olivia I prefer "Less is best". I do like the fit of this pattern, but it is a bit frilly for my taste. However, there are a ton of customers out there that really like this sort of clothing, so why not cater to them. I hope it sells, because I would like to save up some money and buy myself something nice. The next project on my Sewing Worksheet is a 4th of July ensemble. I cannot wait to get moving on that one. It has been in my head for quite some time. I will be making one for Olivia, and two size ranges for my shop. I am getting anxious to finish them. Going to pick up some supplies today with the kids.
On another note, I will be spending the summer with my family again in California. I am taking my laptop, so hopefully I will find some time to blog. My hubby will be coming home and will meet us in sunny CAL-I-Forn-I-Aaaaa! We are very excited about our plans. I guess you can tell. This year has passed by so quickly, so it is important to take some time for yourself, and enjoy the moments.....
