Sunday, August 30

Hello All!!

Hope all is well out there. Things we fairly quiet here this weekend. We ran to Baden-Baden twice on Saturday to get me a pay-as-you go cellphone. We felt this may be a really good idea while Brenna is in Kindergarten this year to let me have some freedom out of the apartment (I can't believe how easy it was to not have a cell phone this last year. There were only a handful of occasions where I felt that it would have been nice to have one.) It will be interesting to see if the minutes go as far as I think they should (that basically the phone won't be used, but just carried around as decoration, lol).

Brenna found her first "chicken truck" since we were back here in Germany already, lol. She loves getting the chicken and fries there so that was lunch on Saturday (although they didn't have any fries so Dustin went into town and ordered Donor and fries - what a nice dad!). We did more running around with going grocery shopping and a few last minute items for Brenna's first day of Kindergarten (I can't believe how quickly my little girl is growing up, sniffle, sniffle!). I was able to get Justice out for his walks this weekend - I wonder if he is feeling sore like I am!!

Today, I tried to make it project day - I have all these ideas in my head and can't wait to get some more things finished, but my speed just doesn't accomplish everything that I want it to (I didn't even finish the one project that I had mosting cut out already and just needed sewn together)! I spent time this morning cutting out some fabric, but I changed projects when I ran out of fabric for my bag lining (this wasn't a big deal, but I felt like I better get one of the projects I had already cut out at that point sewn together today). So, I ended up working on the apron that my mother-in-law picked out - it is a really cool looking Amy Butler pattern. The one I made for my sister turned out so cute, that I really want to see how this pattern looks when done (plus, I needed to cut out the apron to make sure I had plenty of fabric for the bag!). I finally had to quit for today at 10:20 pm - and bummer, my project isn't quiet completed :-( (lots of steps in making darts to this pattern - but I am pretty sure it will turn out very nice when done). I am pretty much to all the finishing steps and some more ironing (where are you Renee and mom- it was so much fun to work on projects together??) - but alas, no picture of my project from today. Hopefully, I will get a chance to finish it this week with having some time in the mornings free!

Well, I better pack things up for tonight! Take Care!

Just remember that you always have another day to get these projects done! No stress! I can't believe Brenna starts "Kindergarten" tomorrow, i bet she's super excited! I'm sure it was nice to have a weekend where you weren't running all over the place and have a chance to get back into your rhythm (sp?) I loved doing projects with you and hopefully will see more of yours on the blog later this week. I finally (remember when I bought the fabric to make the living room curtains?) made some matching pillow cases to go in the living room, they literally didn't take that long, but I've been so busy doing other things, such a bad excuse! Oh well, glad to hear you had a good quiet weekend!
