Good morning, I've missed being here. I wish I had some exciting reason for being away but actually it's been rather quiet around here lately.
With all the mad sewing to open my Etsy shop finished, even my sewing machine has been rather still. I started some new fall place mats over the weekend that I'm hoping to finish up today and then I have quite a bit of Christmas (yes, I said Christmas) sewing on my list so that constant whirrr of my machine will be filling the air soon enough.
We have been spending our Saturday mornings out at the soccer field watching my seven year old grandson play. This is the age where the game starts making sense and they start developing the skills and mind set to set up plays and pass the ball so the games are actually quite exciting. His team is doing well with no losses yet this season.
My garden is so sad looking right now. The heat has been non stop for weeks now and with our drought restrictions here in California only the grass is getting regular watering. We are expecting a break in the heat next week (cross your fingers) so I hope to get out there and dead head, weed and do a good general clean up in anticipation of a winter planting of cool season veggies.
My husband and I have been trying to be more intentional in building our marriage so we have been making a point of talking and spending moments together. That's all I'm going to say on this subject for now as it deserves it's own post later.
As you can see, I finally put out my fall decorations. This always spurs on a deep cleaning and it feels so good to have it all done. I tried to go a bit more minimal in here but as I pulled out each little pumpkin it lead to the next one and so on. I know the thing right now is to just add a few branches and a white pumpkin or two but I love the colors of fall and it makes me happy to see it displayed in all it's silky glory all over the house.
That's it for me...how's it going with you?
