A couple of hours later, the sun makes its way up over the mountain behind our 5th wheel.
As I was writing yesterday's blog post I noticed an orange glow coming through the window in our door.
I peeked outside, grabbed my coat and camera and went outside to capture this beautiful moment...
It remained cloudy all day and the temps were in the upper 60's. Very comfortable outside. In fact, I almost sat outside to watch the birds flock the feeder and takes photos but I had a project that needed my attention indoors...
I had been wanting to do some sewing yesterday but I couldn't decide what I wanted to work on.
After getting in our closet for something I saw what needed to be done...
A quilt-lined shirt that got CountryBoy through the cold winter of Idaho earlier last year was in dire need of repair.
I wasn't quite sure how to go about fixing it so I started out by taking the sleeve off.
From there, I trimmed all the loose threads and surged (I think that's what it's called) the edges of the sleeve together as well as the shirt sleeve opening.
Then, I attached the sleeve back onto the shirt. I did a straight stitch first then went back over it with a zigzag stitch for more reinforcement.
All done and looking much better...
I also whipped up a couple of gluten-free Gingerbread Mini Loaves and Cinnamon Maple Frosting...
and made some Chicken Veggie 'Lo Mein' for dinner...
MMMMmmm! So good!
Today, I woke up at 3:30 a.m. with an awful headache. I took some Advil and went back to bed.
CountryBoy got up at 4:00 to get ready for work. I usually get out of bed around 4:30 (once he's out of my way, ha!) but this morning I fell back asleep and never heard a thing until he came in to kiss me goodbye.
I stayed in bed and finally got up around 6:30. That is so unlike me but I guess I needed the extra sleep. Thankfully, the headache was gone. I'm moving a bit slow this morning but that's OK. I don't have much on the agenda today.
When I woke up at 3:30 it was raining. That is the first rain since I've been here! It didn't rain much but it's very cloudy and overcast today so maybe we'll get some more.
Looks like a good day to drink some hot tea, curl up on the couch with a good book and maybe do some more sewing (if I can figure out what I want to sew!).
What have you got going on today?
Till next time,
