Just popping my head in on the way by the computer. I'm finding myself even busier without the kids here, I guess because there's nothing to interrupt me when they're gone. I do miss them awfully bad, though. I kept expecting them to come home last night. Sam even got a little bit of overtime today, so he's gone later than usual too.
Yesterday I got my house back in order, sweeping, vacuuming, washing tubs and toilets, doing laundry. In the afternoon, Wes and I walked down to the mechanic's garage to pick up the car, which was at least a couple of miles; it took us 45 minutes! It was a beautiful afternoon, though, and a nice walk. I thought as we were walking and I was getting tired, how glad I was that I could walk that far and only get slightly tired. I think often of my mother and her battle with diabetes, and how weak she was during the last 6 years of her life. How blessed I am that my own diabetes has not progressed to the point that I am unable to take care of myself and family, and I can still exercise vigorously and take a long walk with my husband. Praise the Lord!
Last night I made a skirt (the one that falls just below the knee - I made it a tiny bit longer). I'm not real good at taking my measurements and making alterations as I go, and now it's too big (a good problem, but still a problem). I'm going to work on it some more tonight to see if I can get this one to fit well enough to wear, then I'll make changes to the pattern before I make another one. I like the look of this skirt, and it's one of the easiest I've ever made. I had hopes of making several this week, but I'm running out of time.
Wes and I went to the US to do our grocery shopping today. It was a nice, leisurely day, unlike our usual shopping days. We just got home a couple of hours ago, ate, and now I'm ready to start working on that skirt again. So I'll end with that. Hope you're all having a great week! I don't know when I'll post again; there's still so much I want to do this week, plus we have church here tomorrow night. See ya later!
