Sunday Lately is a weekly linkup hosted by the Blogger Tribe, which is fearlessly led by Angelica (Gardening in High Heels) and myself. We e-hangout every Sunday, sharing a small glimpse into the past week of life in our own worlds. We'd love if you could join us!
This week's themes: Redoing, Making, Choosing, Concentrating, Appreciating.
Redoing. My life. Too extreme? My plan of attack on life. Does that work? So much stuff is always happening around us and I sometimes feel this disconnect because I can't focus on one thing and accomplish it. I'm trying really hard to set myself schedules and be a lot more strict...like I used to be. Somehow I became more lax with my schedule and it's pretty obvious what happens when I do that. Helter skelter.
Making. Clothes, but of course. I did a fun rehab of a shirt I found at Old Navy in men's section for $2. And I also finally broke down and figured out how to hack the P4P YoHo Henley into a polo shirt for Louis for school. It's pretty cute, I think. But I'm also super annoyed that no one carries long sleeved polos in youth sizes. I need to have a talk with all of these manufacturers.
Choosing. To do a lot of crocheting at night lately. It's been kind of nice to get back into it...I feel like I go hard on one thing and then don't touch it for like six months. I also got accepted as a blogger for a crocheting/sewing/crafting website recently. So I'll be writing up some patterns to share on there and I'm pretty excited. It's my first time doing something like this with blogging!
Concentrating. See: Redoing. Concentration isn't my strong suit right now. I'm working on it. Maybe I'm concentrating on concentrating?
Appreciating. Our city and everything we seem to get ourselves involved in. Or things that we start and people get behind. Bennett is ramping up a sequel to the Meet Me in the Alley project (yay!) and we are planning an Adult Prom through the Wheeling Young Preservationists (BIGGER YAY!). On top of cleanups that Bennett is helping with, attending events like Show of Hands, and just the general level of awesome that happens on a daily basis around here...it's hard to not appreciate the Friendly City.
