This week has been a very busy, but absolutely gorgeous week! The weather has been amazing & we thoroughly enjoyed it by spending lots of time out & about!! Last night we had a wicked "summer thunderstorm", which is a little strange in February mind you, it was actually torrential downpouring for a while and ended up hailing for a few minutes as well! I posted a video on Instagram if you want to see... I think now we're in for another chilly week with snow in the forecast. Only in Canada will you wear tshirts and shorts one week in +20c weather, then parkas and toques the next!! Today we had some snowflakes and it's -5c or something... it's absolutely insane honestly.
Oh well, what can you do!?
This weekend we have no plans to leave the house, I shall be a hobbit, or is that a hermit? Same difference? LOL!! Dh went downtown today with child #2 to book shops, record shops, etc... I stayed home warm with the girls. Lol! I plan on working on my "weekend to do" list mostly and hanging out with the kids. It's also time for my "selfish sewing"! Yay! I have a few gifts I've been wanting to make but haven't had the time lately, perhaps I'll try to knock one off my list this weekend...
So far I've had zero time for sewing today as i'm closing customs soon and getting all my customs in and typed out so I can make my schedule for the next week, then two, then probably 3!! I've gotten quite a few customs today so I think I'll be full for the next 3 weeks! So I've spent literally all day almost working through emails, PM's, pulling fabric combos, etc... it's amazing how much time that takes!! I don't think people realize really how much time all the "other" stuff takes me!
Housework needs done (what else is new?) I'm behind on laundry (same old), I have a bunch of photo editing to get done. I did manage to make a good dent in my customs this week and finished two slimline wallets yesterday for the last of my customs for the week.
This is my *Mini Slimline Wallet* If you'd like to make one yourself, you can find my pattern on Craftsy!
If you'd like to custom one in your favourite fabrics, just email me or msg me on my FB page.
Let me see, what else do I want to ramble on about today... *wink*
Things are going awesome with the kids, Dallas is back home, working again, his social life is booming, he's happy and at peace again. I'm so very happy that he's doing well! It does my mama heart good!!
Child #2 is totally knocking University courses out of the ballpark with 98%+ marks!! We're going to UWO in March for an open house to see what courses they offer etc... we're also looking at the University of Alberta (this one is a BIG possibility) and St.Francis Xavier in Nova Scotia. UWO doesn't seem as likely, but we'll see where things end up anyways! The interest just doesn't seem to be leaning towards UWO, but you never know right?
The girls are doing well in their schooling, and enjoying being kids. I love that they're home with me, and they love it too. It's nice that they can be simply be children...
Well I'm still trying to cross things off of my "to do" list, so I need to get back to it! I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!
