Just Life


Hello Friday! I just realized that April offers five Mondays, but only four Fridays. so I’d better make the most of all of them!

from this afternoon’s walk in the park with Lauren

Thinking about so many things. and trying to keep my thoughts on (mostly?) the good things. My early morning journal time helps me sort through a lot of it. and an afternoon walk with Lauren brings more clarity. especially when we both pause to take a picture of Spring!

Grateful for my Friday morning small group. Today was our first meeting about The Universal Christ. We sort of followed the Companion Guide (for the Embodiment Group) and the reflection, discussion and revelation were … well … I’m still basking in the light.

Inspired by all your positive comments on my “sew all the skirts” plan. thank you! I haven’t yet put scissors to cloth, but I have placed an order with pdfplotting (printing patterns on a gazillion sheets of 8-1/2×11 paper and then taping them together is maybe my personal hell…and this company prints the “copy shop” files on one big sheet of paper) and I’ve mentally mapped fabrics to patterns.

Fun! our annual girls weekend in Beaufort is only five days away. Stay tuned for an update to this photo!

    This is the perfect TGIF post – full of the best of all the things. And, not to be an enabler or anything, but did you see the Cleo Skirt? https://www.made-by-rae.com/cleo/ I really like it – and NO ZIPPERS!!

    Have a fantastic weekend away with the girls! I am looking forward to seeing pictures of you all!

    Look at those beautiful smiles! Clearly it’s a very fun event, and I can see why you’re looking forward to it. Happy weekending!

    Hooray for Friday’s AND Spring! The pattern printing service – 21st C “play” on a 20th C feature when one bought patterns. Ain’t technology grand! Looking forward to your annual girls’ getaway! Enjoy your sewing and Happy April weekend!
    Cheers ~

    Wishing you lots of happy moments with ‘the girls’ this weekend; lovely to be reminded of the beauty of flowers (I think your Spring is ahead of ours).
