I have a little bit of a routine in the morning. The rest of the day, not so much. Well, yesterday, when I was looking at my calendar and said I had NOTHING this weekend - I lied. I actually have two classes scheduled, and I need to see if they work on the day they are scheduled. While neither is huge, they do require prep work.
First - I need to get all the follow-up done for last week. That's a task for today. One presentation tonight and LOTS of writing today.
I have show and tell as well, but I'll save that for another day. One by one, those items on the TODO list are disappearing, and not too many are being added, but I LOVE that electronic version. Nothing ever gets lost on a scrap of paper or on a long-forgotten list in a book. I now have to be accountable for what I write on the list as I see it numerous times each day. YEAH!!!!
Here's my wildlife picture today. That's a hawk in the trees. I don't know much about hawks, but he was waiting patiently for something. I see him or her about once a week in the forest.

I have to laugh - I got the same quilt from two different people. This one is also done!

I'll be back at it today and tomorrow and tomorrow, etc.

I've got a great website to send you to this morning. This week, I'm reviewing the Husqvarna Viking Brilliance 75Q. So you may not be in the market for a sewing machine, but check it out because I always try to offer up some great tips as I go. Wait until you see what else I did this week. Oh yes -- I'll be providing the links, so you watch for them.
We had another super day on Monday sewing. So nice to stay in touch with everyone. Will we ever go back and sew in person? Not sure, but I love the Zoom thing as I can do multiple things at once - like creating and printing a label so I can sew it onto my Trendtex Challenge, which I'm happy to report is in the mail. I couldn't do that in person. And well - no need to pack and unpack and travel there. That all takes time - time that we could be sewing. And I really don't feel like I'm out of the loop with the group. We have all kinds of conversations, and as a matter of fact, I think it's easier in Zoom because only one person can talk, so you get to hear ALL the conversations. Not just the one next to you!
Speaking of the post office - here's a serious issue. There were two people in front of me. Both of them were returning items that they had purchased online from that large store. Seriously??? Can people not see from the pictures or do the research before? Or just not buy until you can buy in person? And I'd NEVER buy clothes on-line. Think of the cost to the environment and how that impacts shipping costs and the cost of the products in general as someone will have to unpack that item, and it either goes back on the shelf (if possible) or thrown in the landfill. That's terrible!!
I've been giving you a break on tidying up! I've realized that it's the indecision that kills us. Once we make a decision and start, we're pretty good about cleaning up! So here's an area and one that your husband may hate you for. What about all those computer books that they bought (or perhaps you did) and well - what are we keeping them for? We can't even give them away - the programs don't even exist any longer. So computer books! Recycling!!!!
On that note, and according to my routine, it's time to edit what I wrote and then get out for the morning walks!
Have a super day!!!!
