I spent a lot of today working on the curtains for my co-teacher and I accomplished them all by myself:). I also had some fun though!
I got up this morning and realized I needed to get going on these curtains. I called my mom, because isn’t that what you do when you need to talk through something, cane up with a plan and went for it!
I got the first one almost finished before I had other commitments, but came right back to them when I got home. I was worried that I wouldn’t have the design lined up, but I’m happy enough with it:)
On the second one, I was almost done when I realized they couldn’t be the same length as the first curtains, but they should have been able to be!!! I had to regroup and figure out where I had gone wrong. I ended up ripping out two seams, but in the end, I finished and the two sets of curtains are the same length.
I decided to stop with the two, even though there are four total, so that Liane can try them out when they go camping. If they work, I now have a list of steps to follow to finish the second two sets:)
My morning break was meeting two girlfriends for time at the park with two cute little boys. My friend will be leaving at the end of August for time in Mexico with her husband’s family so I am trying to get my time and snuggles in while I can! We had a great time at the park and actually managed to stay dry- pretty amazing!
Anytime with these four people is amazing and fills my heart!
We took a break from the park for a walk around the block which put the youngest one out long enough for us to grab lunch. There were no sandwiches or salads I could eat so I had the vegan orchard cookie and my Buccaneer tea. It was a lovely treat and the catching up made it even better.
After finishing the curtains I realized that I needed to get out for a run! I really didn’t want to and it was tough to get out the door, but I finally prevailed and managed to do 6.64km. I had forgotten that I had turned off the audio cues, but it seems to be working for me as I ran slightly faster than I have been lately:). The cooler weather may have also helped with this!
I have watched two Hallmark movies as I’ve been working on my rug this evening. The first was Love on the Slopes.
I really enjoyed this movie! It is about a woman conquering her fears which is something we should probably all try to do. It also touches on the idea that we are all good at different things and that we can help each other. I loved that these messages were present, though they weren’t in your face either:)
I also realized while watching this movie one of the reasons I so enjoy Hallmark movies. I do love the happy endings (there’s enough sad in the world!), but I also love the fact that I recognize the scenery! Most of these movies are filmed here in BC so it’s cool to be watching and realize that, “hey, I’ve been there!” In fact, one movie was filmed in the shopping village across the street from me!
The second movie I watched was Love Once and Always.
I enjoyed this movie, not only for the attractive male character, and the banter between the two characters, but also because the main character is a history buff. It links to my love of history:). The sheep does steal the show at times😂
Well, I’m off to read my book.
