One of my very favorite things to do is to turn on tv and then sew or crochet, but I don't allow myself that privilege unless I’m staycating. So, I'm having a wonderful time here with the dogs doing what I like to do. My focus at this time is to make doll clothes for Hazel, who is coming to live at Allyn’s house very soon. I wanted Hazel to have clothing options right away, but wouldn’t you know it, suddenly nothing comes together the way it should. It took me all day Tuesday to make a simple skirt and all day today to make a jeans skirt. Well, there’s really more to the story because I was experimenting with those decorative elastics. Oh well. I’m just sayin’, “30-minute doll clothes” is a myth at my house.
I correctly anticipated another hot afternoon, so I took the dogs for a long walk in the cool of the morning just after the school bus went by. They were both excited to go. Then we went for several shorter outings in the afternoon / evening, and at that, I had to coax Nellie.
This afternoon I visited a friend at her home and then dropped by Jo-Ann’s for more of those fancy elastics – today’s staycation gift, I guess.
Daughter Hallie messaged in the evening to ask if I’d heard from Mike, and I hadn’t. I sensed she might be a little uneasy. I, however, feel at ease. He isn’t traveling alone, and as he always says, “Everything is all right or we would have heard.”
[At this writing (actually Day 3), we have heard from Mike. He’s fine and having a great time.] KW
