The first week of September turned out to be a busy one around here. My second week back at work; kids started school, and always something in the afternoons and evenings to occupy my time.
I try to make sure the kids have a good breakfast before we head out the door at 7 o'clock each morning, so fixing healthy meals that don't take a lot of effort becomes very necessary during the school year.
Even with all the healthy eating, my energy was at an all time low by the time we got home yesterday afternoon; all I could think about was sleeping. Thank goodness for weekends!
All this busyness means that there has been no time for crafting or creating. I took a look back at all the projects I finished in July and August. Lots of doilies and dishcloths.
Granny borders and gift bags.
Little cotton facial pads.
I even bought yarn this week, hoping to add to some granny squares I'd already made, but so far haven't done a thing.
The wife of the guy who runs our copy room at school just had their first baby who was born prematurely. Although the mom has gone home, the baby is still in the hospital and needs to gain weight before she can be released. I would like to make a blanket for them. Just gotta get those creative juices flowing again.
The weather continues to be hot (111 degrees at the moment), but thankfully with clear skies. I just saw on the news that Arizona had a major dust storm yesterday, with rain predicted and possible flash floods. Talk about weather extremes.
Since we have no plans for the day, I think I'll start rolling my yarn into balls. Maybe that process will put me in the mood to crochet.
Hope your week has been a good one.
