Today I have been on the go doing errands, thrifting, making cookies and even cleaning/oiling my sewing machine. That's right! I haven't oiled or cleaned my machine since I have had it. No, I am not going to reveal how long that is (only Pat knows!). Now it doesn't sound like someone is using a "machine gun" in the room, which is how Jason describes my machine. I sew every day and will no longer neglect that hardworking machine, I need it to last a long, long time.
Things I Like
There are a lot of "Things I Like" but I truly enjoy eating and reading at the same time. When I am into a good book I usually read during breakfast and lunch, snippets of sentences and a few paragraphs here and there. Then I read before I go to bed, sometimes for longer than I should. Right now I am reading the first Game of Thrones book, which probably wasn't the wisest choice to read while eating today (blood, raping and pillaging; the book not my lunch). I'm also reading Montessori at Home. I've always read more than one book at a time, reading one while processing the others.
In My Closet
It may not look organized to the untrained eye, but I know exactly what's in there and where it is! One half is fabric/art supplies/crafting stuff and the other is clothes (both mine and Jason's). Our house is old so we only have a tiny closet in our bedroom upstairs, which serves as a linen closet as well as clothes closet. This mess of a closet is downstairs in the guest-sewing-play room.
We found an awesome blue sequined stretchy belt was during this morning's thrifting. Abby thinks it looks like a mermaid belt. This may find its way into my outfit for Secret Date Night this weekend. More on that later...
