hello cancer you might have heard that my aunt got her test results last week. Turns out that this isn't a first diagnosis. And while I understand the denial, I'm really angry, too. With most of her extended family spread out across the country unable to help physically, we're all rooting for her when she starts treatment soon.
hello second week of holidays Douglas is home, and everyone is falling into old routines. Steve is off from Wednesday until Saturday, so we're going to try and get out and do more things together; we're all going a little loopy sitting at home.
hello craft room cleaning I seem to all of a sudden have become a grown up who realises that cleaning has to keep happening. I cleaned the kitchen bench pile on Saturday night, by moving one bowl, and all the clutter was gone! I'm hoping that by moving one thing in the craft room the whole room will magically be clean, but I'm doubting it.
hello weekly newsletter I've been writing for And Sew We Craft since it started over four years ago. Except that I haven't been crafting for ages, so I haven't been writing much. About a year ago I took over writing the newsletter, and have failed miserably at that, too. Last week, I decided that I needed a kick in the bum, and some motivation, so for a period of 8 weeks, I'm sending the newsletter weekly, kind of a mini challenge to me to get it written, and crafters to get crafting. So far, no one has unsubscribed, so I might be onto something. (you can sign up here if you're interested)
hello gardening We're still working through the trees in the backyard tidying them up. I know that neighbours are allowed to cut branches off your trees if they hang in their yards, but gee it would be nice if they told you they're doing it, so you don't just find a random pile of branches hidden out of sight!
hello Monday, a new start every week.
