We have had five days in a row of sunshine although the mornings are still quite cold. But I have been able to take a nice walk everyday and it has been so great! Yesterday I was in Wal-mart (where my credit union has a kiosk) and they have new spring flowers and plants in. I waked through the nursery and I wanted so badly to buy some things, but as I am leaving, I would not have time to plant them, so I just had to enjoy. My birthday is on Sunday and I always ask for flowers and plants for my birthday. As excited as I am about going to my daughters ,I am equaling as excited to start planting, and cleaning the yard.
The shop was very busy yesterday and I did not get to several things I wanted to finish. I need to finish up the bustles on two wedding dresses, and I have another prom dress to fix. Still have the uniforms to do both police and military and then one pair of pants to hem. It isn't like I did not sew yesterday, it was just a steady stream of people, and try ons. I can't get a lot done when I am constantly interrupted.
Two dress came in last night after 7 p.m, a mother of the bride that needed three layers hemmed and was too small so had to be let out. I did get that done, but the prom dress, was used and someone had spilled I think soda all down the front. So that went into the delicate cycle and has been drip drying all night. Yes you can wash a satin prom dress. I tried to get the wedding dresses finished but I was just too tired. When you start making stupid mistakes you just have to stop.
So today I will sew hard as I want to have this evening and tomorrow for packing and leaving.
I was also able to put another $1000.00 on the principle of the house, so I was very excited about that. Last month I was finally able to squirrel enough for an extra payment on the last day of the month. But now I did it on the 20th so next month it looks like I can do this earlier. I have to keep up the extra while I am busy.
Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.
