Saturday-10:30am: Soul Dream
We've had sun and we've had rain.
Back when I could still have the windows open...giving Karma a good chin scratch.
Oops! Somebody walking by.
A couple of packages came. One was some new jersey sheets...which Karma enjoyed both on my bed and climbing inside the big heavy plastic bag to snooze.
A big box came that held two big cheap pillows. I need pillows to help hold things on my lap (including Karma) and my old set of cheap pillows was down to one lumpy one. Karma has been enjoying this big box for going on a week.
I put one of the old jersey sheets inside and she's been one happy cat.
When the sun has been out the maintenance man has been painting the yellow lines in the parking lot.
Dagan was over Wednesday after work for a little bit. He found out how to fix the pacemaker machine (a switch got flipped) and sent off his test over the phone. It got hot enough during the day and hasn't cooled off as much at night and has been humid and sticky...so have had to have the place closed up since Tuesday night, I think it was.
Thursday I went over to spend some time with this little man. He was sleeping when I arrived, so Leah and I did some sketching and planning.
We want to sew a sturdy tote to hold diaper changing supplies that Leah can keep downstairs so that she and Dagan don't have to run up and down the stairs every time Ian needs a change. Want little pouches all around the outside to slide in diapers and such--but space in the center to hold the liners and wash cloth holder. I'll take pictures when it is actually constructed so that makes more sense--LOL!
Since I was having a good day...after Ian woke up and was fed we took off for a quick trip to JoAnn's.
Ian was sleeping quietly all wrapped up on mom's chest for most of the trip. But at the very end when I was going quickly through patterns...he woke up...
...and let us know he wanted to go home. Settled right down as soon as we headed for the registers--LOL!
The sky looked so pretty through the windshield (that's why it is blue on the top) that I snapped this picture while Leah was getting Ian buckled in.
I stayed over at their place until after 9pm. (Could barely walk yesterday after all that--LOL!) But we got some brown duck cloth, brown heavy-duty thread. some black thread for another stroller accessory project we're planning to make, white cotton belting to make handles for the wash cloth holder that will go in the middle of the diaper tote (kind of heavy and awkward to lift one-handed and we have a velcro idea)...
...and I got some heavy duty iron on interfacing to heft up the red leather fauxdori covers.
I plan to use the narrow roll along the spines where they really needs some support because the rubber bands squish the leather...and then iron some over the entire backside of the covers. :)
I took this last night. Sticky warm.
Supposed to be cooler tonight--in the 60s. But if it is still so awful humid I won't open the place up. I'm already stiff and sore--LOL! No need to add to it with all that dampness, right? Especially since I'm moving around better today. ;)
I am so very grateful to each and every one of you who have left comments, sent emails, or even mentioned me on your blog (Iggy that was so sweet!) in support of me getting in to North Sky senior apartments. I can't tell you how much every good thought or prayer means to me. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Tammy (talented artist/sculpter) sent me an email:
"I know you are in your new apartment already. Write to me and tell me how much you like it and be very very specific."
I have always heard you are supposed to imagine whatever it is you truly desire as if it is already true...and in detail. So...I thought on it for a couple days and wrote her back. she said I should "post that some place so you can remind yourself daily!" I am going to make a copy and read it every so often, but I thought I would share it with you, too.
