Yesterday, I finished my first pair of pants from the new pants pattern and they are amazing. They look nice and they feel great. Very very pleased. The pattern was pricey and well worth it - not so much for the template to use for cutting fabric but for the tips and tricks for making that template work for my body and for putting it all together. I'm wearing the pants now and have the next pair cut out and ready to sew up with improvements on how to get the pockets better. So delighted. I cannot wait to recycle the stack of old pants in my closet.

I thought I had figured out how to make my fitness tracker work for me. I cannot exactly cheat with it but I thought I could trick it. Turns out, it tricks me. This morning I did my normal swim and added 5 minutes. But, apparently, I did not work hard enough. The tracker tracks not only time and distance but also effort. And there's no cheating on the effort bit. Sigh. Now I'll have to go take a walk to make up the points.

The woman from the bed company sent me the instructions to reprogram, as promised. Kinda. She sent me steps 1, 2 and 4. And they include a big REQUIRES TWO PEOPLE. Fuck. I did send an email to the store where I bought it asking if they could send someone out. I doubt they will. If I get step 3, maybe my house cleaner and I can do it.

I did figure out that the new Google real time translator does Bosnian!! So I totally plan to try that one out on her. She comes again a week from Wednesday. She'll be surprised.

Nothing special going on this week except, hopefully, my new phone will arrive. It's supposed to ship tomorrow and arrive Thursday or Friday. Nice. It's supposed to start raining here today and not stop before next Monday. I'm ok with that. I have boots.

I think I'll go make pants.
