June 3rd, 2016


Today started off remembering last night's ballgame. The Mariners were down 12 to 2 in the 5th. And, then, won the game 16-13. It was pretty amazing and it was fun. Very fun.

The pool, which has been amazingly empty for two weeks and is generally empty on Fridays was packed this morning. It was weird. But I got my half lane and had a great swim. Although, I got too close to the hard plastic lane line and whacked the back of my hand which is now covered with a really ugly blood bruise. But, it looks like one that might heal quickly.

My meet up with the adoption lady is at 10 and then I think I'll stop in at the fabric store and then home where I plan to stay. The sun is out strong already and the forecasters are promising hot today, hotter tomorrow and Africa hot on Sunday. I plan to be right here loving my air conditioner.

Today's baseball is in Texas, at 5. And it's likely to be rained out. I have TiVo banked for such an occasion. Plus, I started a Kindle library book last night that's pretty interesting...

Mini update

Jeannie at the Baby Bank reiterated that she can use all the bears and dolls I can make so whew!

I stopped at the fabric shop and Grocery Outlet and now I'm home with ice water because this is what it says on the thermometer right here by my chair.

Ok so the 91 is because the sensor is now sitting in the sun and 72 is probably more cool than I actually need it, but still... The struggle is real, people!!

I finished off the first bear for June's batch. And now I'm off to make a doll.

No dolls today!

I started on a doll but stopped and made a shirt instead. I tried some new options and now have the neck and sleeve edges perfected. Next up, the bottom hem. I tried one option today that I don't hate. But I have a better idea that I'm going to try tomorrow.

Yep, there may be no dolls tomorrow either! I have one more test fabric. (Test fabric is cheap stuff in a color I don't love - fabric who's job is to help me perfect my finishes for when the good stuff that I ordered arrives next Tuesday.) So I think I'm going to cut it out tonight and sew it up tomorrow.

Then I'm going back and fix a shirt I already made. I have enough fabric to make it better so I think I will.

Then it will be back to the dolls.

The pharmacy did call me looking for their $$. The nice lady said the website should have asked me for a credit card number. Oh well, no biggie. And she was so nice. All done now. Inhaler is in the mail.

It's nearly ballgame time and it's not rained out yet!
