What I’m working on: I actually took this week off from the day job. We didn’t go anywhere because the husband person is still working. But, I had the vacation time and needed a break. Breaks are good for your brain. I’ve deep cleaned the house, got a lot of Konmari-ing done (more on that later) and finished a bunch of random household projects.
I upgraded to a bigger sewing box — thanks to a hand-me-down from my mom (and some help from my lovely assistant). That little white box was basically just filled with loose needles. And I don’t even do much sewing beyond mending clothes and hemming my pants.
I don’t go back to work until Tuesday, so I’ve got a little more time to work on some stuff for the shop, do some craftiness and maybe just soak my feet and relax a little bit.
What I’m reading: I’m just about done with How to Build a Girl. It’s pretty good. I really identify with a teenage girl trying to reinvent herself into someone cooler and smarter and much more interesting. (I imagine everyone who’s ever been a teenage girl can identify with that.)
