Jason Aldean sings a great song with Luke Bryan titled “The Only Way I Know”. I listen to it when I’m walking and it motivates me to pick up the pace while mentally planning my day. One of the lines says, “Dig a little deeper when you think you can’t dig no more.” I kind of twisted that in my head this morning and decided that I had dug a deep enough hole and it was time to start to crawling out. So, now I’m going to dig a little deeper into my guts and start living again. It’s funny how really living takes so much work, but it’s not satisfying unless it does.
I started writing this at 5:30 this morning and I already dug into Mom’s Recipe Box for some yummy recipes for next week. I added any ingredients I needed to my grocery list so I should be all set to start cooking. I have done very little cooking this summer and I’m not sure I would even call it cooking. Mostly, it involved very little combining of ingredients and making a complete meal with side dishes and everything was a supreme effort. I’m starting off slow so my family doesn’t go into shock so this week is nothing fancy. I’m not going to hint at any of the recipes I picked because that would just be too much pressure. I just hope I remember to take pictures when I DO make her recipes.
I have some home sewing to catch up on…buttons and hems mostly. Apparently we are a house of short people who lose a lot of buttons because it seems like that’s all I have to do for us most of the time. I will also be working on a string of flags to draw attention to the boutique. I’m doing the sewing and Kris will do the fabric painting. We’re also combining those two skills into a class. On Saturday, September 19th, we’re having a pillow painting class at ReChic Unique. You will learn how to paint on fabric and then turn your artwork into a pillow cover. Students will leave with a completed pillow. It’s going to be so much fun! That is the same day the Sandhill Crane Festival in Wheatfield where my quilt club, Country Cut Ups, will have a booth. We have a quilt that we are raffling and some of the ladies will have handmade items for sale. It looks like that will be a busy day for me!
Well, that’s all for today. Time for me to dig a little deeper and make myself do some work.
Have a great day everyone!
