Embarking. Upon some sewing with my Momma this week. This woman taught me how to use a sewing machine. And here I am, teaching her how to sew apparel. It’s so funny to me that I’m the teacher in this instance. She asked me to help her make a couple gifts for coworkers and we spent some time together doing just that. You don’t realize how different your sewing techniques are until you sew with someone who has already established theirs as well. I hardly pin, don’t have absolute precision, and just let it all work itself out. She’s exactly the opposite.
Enjoying. The new appliance that’s living in Bennett’s comic book room. We’ve got ourselves a full sized kegerator, my friends! Bennett and I drilled a hole into the front of the fridge that had been hanging out in our garage for a while. The conversion process was so much easier than I had anticipated. And now we have a locally brewed IIPA on tap, ready to drink whenever we want. It’s love!
Experimenting. With rearranging at the office. Oh my goodness, if anyone needs a major purge, it’s the people that I work with. Most of them have been employed there for 10+ years…which means that most of them have 10+ years of paperwork, magazines, and office supplies that are just stashed away somewhere, being ignored. I’ve been upsetting their usual workflow by moving furniture, throwing away things we don’t need, and forcing them to clean here and there. On Thursday, our administrative team decided we wanted to take over the entire room that’s been the copy room for the last 2309823098 years. And we did. It might not look like much to you, but to be able to have this space for collaborating with my team is so god damned wonderful. I just kept staring at it on Thursday and Friday, admiring our new open space.
