Life in the country--finally a sense of what's "normal".
Yes, yes, it's true. For the first weekend since probably May, I didn't have anything I HAD to do. As I've told a couple of my friends--my period of extreme self aborbtion is over. And it's really nice. I'm glad everyone wanted to throw me lovely showers, etc, but it's just not my gig to the center of attention at all times.
Jason had to work at his new job--at the Geek Squad at Best Buy, and don't tell him, but it was nice to have a few moments to do some crafty work without feeling guilty for not paying attention to him. Not that he really wants me to pay attention, I just feel weird holing up with my sewing machine when my new husband is sitting around, seeming bored.
This weekend really felt like a breath. Like my mind could dare to dream about new projects and actually finishing others. I worked on the thank you notes--well, not nearly enough--but some, and I started a BIG new project which I hope to do a tutorial on. I'll give you a hint: it's a quilt-related thing.
And, I went to visit my friend Carrie's family farm and corn maze. I have a camera from work that my boss told me to "make friends with" so I went and shot around a little bit. We drove around the farms in the area a little and generally enjoyed the last of summer warm weather.
