mum's day flowers from my boys
On the plus side, I have showered, made dinner, and done all the housework by roughly 9am. Giving me the whole day to do whatever! This week, it mostly meant stumbling around in a fog after the first coffee wore off.
But on Friday, after two days of wicked winds, I took a good look at my sewing room. DIRT. DIRT EVERYWHERE. Not normal dust, mind you, or a little dirt [that I can live with, I'll be buried in it someday after all], this was appalling. Turns out, the dirt pile next door at the new construction has been blowing right in my windows and doorwall.
You know what? Computers, sewing machines, fabric and paper don't like dirt. I kept the windows closed while I cleaned, then covered everything up with sheets....
Do you know how hard it is to find anything when it's all covered up??? I also put some pieces of sheets on the windows...it may help, it may not. I was thinking of maybe getting some cheap furnace filters to put there, to see if that would help, might work better than the sheets. It's summer, in Michigan, nobody keeps their windows closed! We could use the a/c, but the unit is also on that side of the house, and full of dirt. I hope they get a lawn soon!
I did spend one day drawing up a new design.
I've been stitching when I can keep my eyes open. Hopefully this coming week will be easier. Hard to teach an old dog new tricks, lol!
I'm planning on coming around to visit you all this week as well, I know you've been up to stuff, can't wait to see!!!
