It’s going to be another gorgeous day here at Chez Nana … it feels more like late September than mid August. And having the windows open gives our heating/cooling budget a break.
I didn’t get any work done in the sewing room yesterday. I spent the afternoon watching the Ts while Mama worked. Before I left, I had several minor sewing repairs to make for DD … a button sewn onto a pair of DSIL’s shorts, a seam repaired on one of T#4’s dresses, a repair to a Luigi stuffie, etc. My plan for today includes more sewing … storm at sea blocks.
I injured my back Tuesday evening … T#4 was not ready to leave the playground and wouldn’t come down off the jungle gym when I called her, leaving me no alternative but to climb up there to get her. The climbing up wasn’t a problem … but the getting down with a fussy toddler was. I tried as best as I could to get both of us down safely, and I suspect that my attempts to brace myself sprained my upper back muscle. I can’t believe how much that muscle is used! Thankfully OTC ibuprofen seems to help.
We’re now 4 weeks from leaving for Hilton Head … and I can’t wait. We haven’t met a beach yet that we didn’t love, but there’s something magical about the beach at Hilton Head that keeps drawing us back.
Our deck is coming along nicely … I couldn’t be more pleased with how it’s turning out. They should finish it up today or Monday at the latest, I would think … I’m hoping for today as it would be delightful to be able to spend some of the weekend out on our new deck. I’ve been taking pictures to share when the job is done.
Hope you all have a fabulous Friday!
