It is that time of year. I was beginning to wonder as June is approaching where all the wedding dresses were. Yesterday two came in for July and I have at least two more coming in next week. So the season is going to heat up.
I was able to get my list done yesterday as it was an easy one even though I wanted to do nothing. Hubs and I were able to get the last of the Ivy mess cleared up and the last roots dug out. He took another truckload to the dump. I am leaving the flower beds as they are. If I cleaned and replanted they would just get tore up with the painting.
Hubs and I are going to take a rest for a while. We still have the pond and several beds in the back yard to tackle along with the stepping stone path between the house and the coop. We will get all of these things done before we start sanding the house. Also windows have to be replaced first. So it is just one step at a time here. I am just relieved the major mess is cleaned up.
Yesterday I was able to get a a couple of piles of mending out, 2 bridesmaid dresses, and some suits hemmed. Today it will be suit alterations, piles of hemming and mending and of course bridesmaid dresses. I also want to hem a wedding dress and start working on another that have been in the shop a while.
I used my clothesline and the outdoor fence to dry all the bedding that was wet on by the littles. Dryers are expensive to run. So using the air and hot sun really saves.
One of my brides asked about pearls to decorate her cowboy boots and I was able to give her a small sack I had taken off another wedding dress. She was thrilled.
Girlfriends from my childhood came to visit and they are staying at my sisters. We had such a good time last night laughing. They are all a bunch of goons. Lil sis has to work and so do i but these two don't care they just lay around in pjs and enjoy the time off from their lives. I love when they come to visit. I will work in the shop all day and then make hubs dinner and go over to Lil sis's tonight for more visiting. It gives me incentive to get my sewing done so I can go play.
Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.
