in which our plucky heroine decided that the empty space, above the embroidery, on these gown cuffs would be a great spot to apply the one of the sample block printed bands I made earlier this year...
Here is how some of our most necessary sewing tools are manufactured, a very different process than making them by hand:
This weekend was hard, with temperatures over 100F. At night, by around 9:30 PM house achieved equilibrium with the outdoor temperature... both were 82F! Chickens survived, and I made sure that there were extra waterers in place, and Saturday I even added some leftover ice cubes to the big one, to help keep it cooler. About half the time there were two eggs in the henhouse, when I ventured outside just long enough to make sure they had enough water. Scrub jays have been seen drinking from the chook waterers.
There is a layer of pollen all across the top of the chook food container in the carport. Trees have poor boundaries and do not understand consent. I wish that they wouldn't leave their sperm around to find it's way up my nose and into my sinuses. Even folks that don't usually have allergies are finding this year difficult.
A closer look: the pollen balls are HUGE this year! No wonder our plucky heroine has been suffering horrid sneezing allergy fits. Fortunately, I am often able to ease the itching by drinking some of my electrolyte/vitamin C drink, and am not reduced to taking antihistamines, which leave me stupifyingly sleepy.
I have an interim goal. After logging in my SMART goals achieved in May, I noticed that my category for "things gone" is far behind my other categories so far this year. My goal is to discard at least 12 grocery bags of stuff in June, which will have me, while not anywhere near as far as my "things made" category, which is going like gangbusters, at least up to the intended line of thirty so far this year.
