Sometimes I wish I had a fancy phone (meaning one that has internet) so I could have instagram and quickly post pictures from my phone on here, instead of always having to upload from my camera. But then I think about how it's $15/line, so $30/month, so $360 a year. And my mom and dad and grandma and grandpa still read, regardless of the number of pictures.
Anyway, here's a random picture of one of my new favorite things. It's the blanket on the twin bed in my sewing room. Grandma Donna gave it to me shortly before we were married because "it's your colors." (Our wedding colors were red, orange, and yellow. Yellow's been my favorite for many, many years.) I think it was from my Great-Grandma Susie, but I don't remember for sure - wish I'd written it down. It's been in the closet since we moved in; I had to take it out because it's just so happy.
I did take a break from the Olympics this morning to pick up my sewing machine. I wasn't feeling motivated to start on the zippers today, though. Unfortunately, I forgot to send the bobbin case in with the machine, so I'm hoping that the bottom tension didn't need to be adjusted.
I have also been "buying" a lot of books for my Kindle (I can pack a lot lighter when going places!) - really, I almost always get free ones that I find through an app I have. About 1/3 of them turn out to be pretty awful (I suppose there's a reason they're free), but the rest are, at the very least, light and entertaining, which is my new criteria.
Tomorrow we are headed to a mini Zerger (Grandma Lu's siblings and offspring) Reunion. As always, it should be a good time. In just over one short week I have my first day back at work (training for LA teachers a week ahead of the official start of school). As much as I don't want summer to end, I guess it's just about that time...
