Is it the weekend yet? Life seems to be a bit of a treadmill at the moment, although the two French presentations for this week are done! Those are my big stress points these days. I do rehearse them completely and look up any words that I'm sure about, but still! It's one thing to be rehearsing and quite another to live with the group for one hour. I also open the call a half-hour before, and I answer questions then. So that much French late in the day for me - well, it's working out OK, but it keeps me on my toes.
And I think I have French sessions all the way to the end of November! It'll all work out!
I do NOT seem to be getting much sewing done these days. I finished another writing assignment yesterday, and I have another one to start today. Homework assignments need to be put together, and there are THREE classes this weekend. And then there's the Virtual Sewing Retreat. I keep forgetting to mention that. I'm good for one day, and then I forget to remind you the next. Sigh...............
I'll post the links at the end of this post. It's on Saturday night from 6 - 9 PM and all day Sunday, starting at 10 AM. So much fun and easy to stay in touch with friends around the globe! I love it.
We were given the go-ahead that we can return to our in-person Monday sewing days if we want. Well, let's see -- I could pack up all my stuff, set up a table for me and probably others, wear a mask all day, then pack up my stuff, take the tables down, and drive home. Or I could just go downstairs and turn on the computer. Which one will I choose? I think it's pretty obvious.
It's not just about the time and effort to get there, but the convenience, and now we are not limited to sewing with those that can drive there. Anyone can join the Monday sewing group. I LOVE IT, and should you move away from the area, no big deal -- you can still join, and we've had two people who moved away join back! How cool is that?
I may never go back to in-person sewing unless it's for a mini-retreat or one of our longer retreats. It's a lot of work to set up and take down the tables, and we end up sitting with the same people week after week. On Zoom, we get to chat with everyone!
Do you have a pet? The price of dog food has risen. The last time (last month) when I bought food for Murphy, it was $86! Thank goodness we love that dog!

On that note, I'm out of here!!! It's a busy day (as usual). But first, here are the Zoom links for the weekend. If you're curious how it works, be sure to stop by for a few minutes and check it out. You don't have to stay the entire time. And it's so convenient -- no packing up, no sharing of tools, just sit and sew and chat or listen!!!! Super loads of fun! And totally SAFE!!
