Suzi, you really need to come and visit. It's nice and cool here. We're getting gorgeous colors as well. You'll cool off quickly. Just give me some warning, because I need to clean off the bed in the spare room. I've been lazy about tossing things on it. I'm in cleaning/organizing mode.
Linda, you didn't travel far enough north. DS says there are always plenty of whales up there and guaranteed whale sighting tours. He's gotten some nice footage of them. I suppose AK is a bit far to travel for the day, though.
I thought I had completely lost my ambition to sew, but the past few days have made me want to get creative again. I've been knitting socks all along, but that's kind of mindless and not the kind of creative I want to be. Sometimes, when I get really stressed, I feel the need to make something pretty in order to battle the stress in my head. It's either that, or I clean. Really clean. Well, I've been cleaning and organizing and working on things for over a year now and I feel like there is still so much to do. There has been a huge amount of improvement, but now we have this mess in the front of the house and well....I won't get into why S had to leave and not work on the porch when he was ready.....but I'm now waiting again. I'm so tired of waiting and I'm so tired of always being in cleaning/organizing/building mode so that we can have a finished house. So if I can't finish things because I need help, I guess I can be creative.
It's either that, or have to run up and down the road screaming and shouting gibberish. That would not be a pretty site. Trust me.
