Yesterday I braved the rain, I braved taking time out of my busy schedule and I braved going to the fabric store by myself! And I'm so glad I did because, as you both know, we didn't have enough fabric for my pattern and luckily, they still had some - though not very much! I'm delighted that I got what I needed before it disappeared! One more piece to cut and then I'm on my way! I wonder if I'll ever get to the point of sewing sequined material like this!! That's motivation for sure!
I've been working on reading Tender is the Night for what feels like ages (and in actuality is months). I really want to finish it for the end of October, and I want to take some notes and jot down new on not-sure-of-the-definition words. So I set aside some time to actually do that today, and take an estimate of how long it took to read at the pace I wanted to read. Now I have a plan in action of how much I have to read a day to finish it before Halloween. Here's hoping it all goes according to plan!
Our roses are still blooming! In fact a lot of the gardens around us are just flourishing right now. After a long bright summer, the fall rain has begun early but it is not cold so the flowers (and fruit and veggies) are very happy.
