home and away
refusing to be intimidated any longer, I finally threaded my sewing machine and
am starting to get acquainted with it. part of me wants to just start sewing pretty pieces of fabric together and see if I can't eventually piece it all together into a quilt.
but probably I should actually learn some stuff first.
do you have suggestions/tips? if so, I'd love 'em!
(I haven't really used a machine much since making scrunchies in 8th grade home ec)
also, bread and laundry.
good, clean home economics~ bread and laundry.
I think I could get rid of 75% of my clothing and be perfectly happy.
perhaps I'll give it a go. maybe more like 25%. I'm not particularly fashionable anyway, and I bet if I started paying closer attention, I likely wear the same dozen or so articles of clothing again and again and again.
this morning we met some friends at the farm area of the Biltmore Estate. we did some walking, some playing, a little bit of goat and chicken petting (I love the lavender orpington hens they have!), some balance bike/tricycle/scooter riding (the tricycle is her true love), and capped it off by watching the draft horses take a little siesta.
found out today that my mom is getting transferred to another hospital with a more advanced pulmonology department. they are really wanting to get to the bottom of whatever is going on, so she's got some procedures coming up: a lung culture, lung biopsy, and a bronchoscopy. despite her small improvements, those X rays just aren't clearing up, so we'll see. I know I've been talking about it a lot because now and again I hear Claire say things like "critical care unit" and something that sounds a lot like "pulmonologist" when she's playing. how fun.
on the bright side, it reached seventy degrees today, and we went went out to get tacos for dinner.
