July 4, 2018: Relaxation

Happy 4th of July everyone! This was an ideal day to just relax and so some mid-summer cleaning. I took this time to re-organize the things that accumulated in my room, so I spent a good hour finding a space for everything. There’s still a couple bags I need to address, but I’m thankful that it’s completed for the most part. I also spent time creating a classroom book for my toddlers tomorrow. Hopefully it won’t fall to pieces by the end of the week, even after it being laminated. 🙂

I very much look forward to beginning The Lovely Bones tonight. Since I’m now finished with work items for the evening, I can take on a couple chapters. I’m still feeling wide awake at 9pm, so that’s also a plus.

June 3, 2018: Stitch and Sip

I’m glad that the 4th of July break is here. I’m only away from work for the holiday, yet the time off is necessary. The neighborhood fireworks celebration was taking place tonight, and we really enjoy them every year. After work Andy and I went for a quick bite, then we headed to Lone Eagle Brewing for a drink. It’s been a couple months since we last visited, and we managed to locate a table at the upper level for a short while. I got myself a dry Irish stout. The description of the beer mentioned coffee, and I’m always up for caffeine.

As we were leaving the brewery I came across a calendar of events held throughout the summer. One of events mentioned a ‘Stitch and Sip’ event: meeting others who drink, knit and crochet. I felt super excited when I came across the listing…it’s only a couple weeks away, and it’s exciting to meet fellow yarn crafters in the area. I only hope that left wrist is feeling up to creating again. It may just be a pure social event, without yarn crafts. It would be nice for my hand to feel much better though.

July 2, 2018: Tackling Closets

Today I tackled my work closet once again. Although I keep my closet free from accumulating ‘stuff”, every few months I find myself sifting through packs of scrap paper and materials saved for future projects. So it was a huge relief to just remove things I simply didn’t need. Since I came in early, I had the time to focus on this task before I began my shift.

I’m looking forward to tomorrow after work, since the annual fireworks celebration will be held in Flemington. It’s not too far from where I work, so most likely Andy and I will linger in the area so we can find a good spot.
