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: Cuddling, Wrapping, Deciding, Wishing, Cheering.
Cuddling. With my pillows and blankets a lot. A lot more than usual too…because I’ve officially been taken down by strep throat. UGGGGGGH. Why did this have to happen with the worst timing in the history of ever? It didn’t help that MedExpress’ original test showed negative (even though I walked in and told them I had strep) and I went three entire days of feeling like a zombie before they called and said that their follow-up culture came in positive. I was like………..
Wrapping. All the Christmas presents, of course. But last night’s work was extra special because we were wrapping the donated gifts for our “adopt-a-family”. Bennett and I are grabbing a quick breakfast and then playing Santa and delivering all of these incredible donations to our “adoptive” girl and her new caregivers. I hope they have the merriest of Christmases.
Deciding. How to tackle this next week, and the first few months of 2018. I will be going into an office setting and practically working full-time, helping them with a transition. But it’ll be an even bigger transition for the three of us, because I haven’t spent that much time out of the house since I quit for self-employment over three years ago. I don’t even own that many business-ready clothes. It’s going to be an interesting balance of making sure I tend to Thread & Grain, this blog, and most importantly Bennett and Louis…all while spending my 8-5 hours away from the house. I’m sure I can make it work, but it’s going to be rough at first.
Wishing. I hadn’t been sick this week, so I could have more sewing done. I have three Christmas fabrics, two of which I’d designed and had printed myself (!!), sitting around just begging to become outfits for Bennett and me. Unfortunately, I just haven’t had the time to cut them into something. I’m wondering if I can sneak upstairs today for an hour or so, to make things for us to at least wear tomorrow after we change out of our Christmas jammies and open all the gifts.
Cheering. Myself up from the sick-kid blues by simply being around Louis. He is always a never ending bundle of excitement and happiness. But that grows exponentially during Christmas. He loves the magic of Santa, and the giving and getting of gifts, and singing any Christmas song that comes up on my Amazon Pop Christmas station.
