Emily finished school this week and you would think with it being summer and all that I'd get a chance to slow down and take it easy. Hah! The next few weeks are even busier.
I've been gifted a few different times over the past 2 weeks with fabric and I have so many ideas popping around my brain that I can smell smoke! ;-)
Here are two tote bags I made this week and an apron.
The first is identical to the one I made last week, only with nylon lining.
I'm not sure why this looks crooked here. It may have been the angle I took it at. It is symetrical! :-)
I'm catering a friend's graduation party on Saturday so I'm going shopping with her today and then will spend the day tomorrow prepping.
I need to get Emily's quarterly report in the mail by Friday. Yikes!!! That's tomorrow!
I'm writing on a study to do with a friend this summer, entitled, "Finding your place, passion and purpose in Christ."
Next Saturday, I'll be manning not only my own booth, but our church booth (with help), at our town's community day.
My mother and step-dad will be here on July 1st for a week. I have some cleaning and rearranging to do for that.
Dan & I will be celebrating 25 years of marriage next Tuesday. We'll be celebrating with friends and family by renewing our vows on July 6th. So I have much to do to get ready for that, including cooking.
I'll be at our local library on July 13th for a book signing and need to prepare something to say for that.
Things slow down a bit after that. There is a church barbecue & bonfire which will be pure fun and I have to organize Summerfest 2013 for our church but again, I'll have help for those things. Somewhere in there I'm supposed to be working on the next book.
I like being busy and I'm trying to take things one day at a time so it doesn't totally overwhelm me. I have my lists at hand and as long as I can remember where I put them, I'm doing good.
I don't know who coined the term, "the lazy days of summer," but they don't know what they are talking about! lol
