Sunday Lately is a fun way to share a little more about myself while reflecting on the past week.

Practicing… some flexibility. Every thing was a little mixed up this week. My work schedule, school schedule, a stomach bug, teacher conferences, and a holiday. I like predictability, so this was good practice to not be wound so tight.

Finalizing…my sewing plans for the next few months. I usually plan three months ahead, so I can set a vision for what I want and need to sew for my wardrobe and to accomplish my goals. This time around I remembered to schedule in free time to give myself room to be spontaneous with a new idea.

Upgrading…the little guys bedroom. The shin killer of a play table is out and a work table is in. He’s very excited to have a special place for art projects, puzzles, and homework. He’s quite proud of how he’s organized his supplies in the set of drawers.

This week’s themes are Illustrating, Relying, and Reminiscing.

Illustrating… how to properly fill out a Valentine’s card with a To, a From and a candy. The little guy went his own way.

Relying…This week I totally relied on Nextflix to keep my little guy chilled out and resting while he’s sick. He likes a show call TRUE. It’s total nonsense, but the cat has some good lines.

Reminiscing… Working on interview questions from Create Whimsy, got me thinking back to my early sewing projects. There were so many duds and mistakes, but that’s part of learning a craft. I have a lot that I’m proud of too.

Hiding…All the toys I’ve rounded up for donation. Sheesh, where does it all come from?

Quoting…song lyrics as is my usual. One example from this week “feels just like I’m walking on broken glass”- Annie Lennox

Telling…myself I cannot commit to sewing anything else until at least March and promptly ignoring that.

Skipping… School y’all! Last weekend, we took a road trip to eastern Nebraska to visit my sister, soak in the cuteness of my 9 month old nephew, and view the eclipse in its totality. For all this fun, the little guy skipped his 3rd day of kindergarten. Totality worth it!

Mastering: Seriously, I am on the opposite end of the spectrum from mastering.

Climbing: (nada)

Encouraging: We have expectations for behavior for our 5 yr old son; good manners, respect, and choosing to do the right thing. Lately when he falls short, it feels like we’ve been heavy on the correction and light on the encouragement. Trying to bring it back into balance.

Modeling: My sister is a talented photographer and took some shots of me “modeling” a couple of outfits that you’ll see on the blog in September for the Sew Long Summer blog tour.

Solving: Had to solve the question: How to draw an equilateral triangle. I couldn’t jog my memory of high school geometry, so thank you google for having all the answers.

Hanging: There was a lot of hanging out going on. Hanging at the park with friends, hanging at home for a few hours while the little guy was at VBS, and hanging at the water park having fun.

Teaching: I was happy to turn over the little guy to the wonderful ladies and gents that put on VBS at church this week. I’m still trying to figure out what he’s talking about when he says Jesus got mad at the ten Gideons and made them disappear. He had a great time.

Remembering: I had to complete my continuing ed and testing to renew my insurance license this week. It’s all about remembering boring facts that rarely have practical application to what I actually do. Blarg.

Restoring: This week has seen the restoration of an old habit that isn’t a particularly good one. I put myself on a fabric buying diet this year and have been doing well with it. This week though, I purchased about 10 yards, most of which will just go into the stash until fall. Here’s hoping to getting back on the wagon.

Tweeting: I don’t tweet myself, but I’ve been enjoying the music the birds around our home have been making. I like to think the momma bird nesting on the pergola over our patio is singing along to her soon to be babies.

Raising: Our little guy just turned five. Celebrating his birthday and some other reminders have me very mindful of enjoying him now at this age before he actually turns into the man we’re hoping to raise.

Giving: My husband normally gives a week of volunteer time as a counselor for Royal Family Kids Camp; helping foster kids in our county have a week of fun, encouragement, and love. This year he couldn’t do a week because of jury duty, but was able to help for one day where they throw a huge birthday party for all the kids.

Illustrating: This week I sketched out a basic plan for the huge garden bed in our back yard. The bed is about 5 feet deep and 120 feet long, totally overrun by weeds, and completely daunting to me. I’m trying to be realistic about getting it filled with perennials that will take care of themselves.

Restoring: ??

Writing… Well I stink at writing and sending cards, but this week the little guy and I made some holiday cards.

Quitting… I’ve been making a concerted effort to unsubscribe from email lists. No need to get all these emails from places I maybe use once a year.

Fixing… It seems like there has been a lot of fixing going on lately around the house: replacing the over the range microwave, replacing a glow plug in our diesel VW (hubby’s accomplishment), glueing trim down on the night stand. It feels like we are sliding into entropy.

Celebrating… A small celebration this week as we had a Day Date while the little guy was in preschool.  The Star Wars: Power of Costume exhibit at Denver Art Museum was really cool. We dined at our favorite Indian restaurant for lunch and watching Rogue One in a movie theater. Sweat!

Updating… The approaching tax season always reminds me that I need to file away that stack of documents. I need a new system. I hate filing, so it all just gets chucked onto a pile that doesn’t get put away forever.
