It has been the week from bizarro-land. Everything I have tried to accomplish has gone down the tubes, been three times as difficult as it should have been, or just not worked!
I am down to wearing my embarrassing clothes, so I have to get to the laundry machines before anyone tomorrow morning. That is the worst thing about living in an apartment, well, one of them anyway. Timing your laundry when no one else is doing theirs. One of the other things is the people that have no allergies insisting on using "Gain" laundry crap. I have been having headaches all bloody week, for some reason the smell wafts down the hallway and right into my suite. I currently have a fan running, pointed at the hallway door to keep the smell out as much as possible. I am going to start a NO GAIN campaign, well, maybe just get the Asthma Society on their backs.
I purchased some swimsuit fabric the other day, I found a very nice pattern and thought it would be cheaper to make my own. In fact the fabric was on sale for 50% off, so I bought 4 metres and think I will be able to make a pair of bike shorts and maybe a tank top too - all for just over $20.00. If anyone has any tips on sewing lycra or spandex, let me know okay? The community pool near here is a salt water pool and they have aquasize classes in the evenings, so I thought I would give them a try.
I am also rebuilding a leather coat (I hope), it got a corner tear in the back a couple of years ago, so I figure if I mess it up, well, I couldn't wear it anyway. I just hope this machine is strong enough to sew leather. I am going to put darts in to take it from a box coat to a more tailored look, which should allow me to hide the tear and have a wearable coat again. Cross your fingers for me.
Of course, I have to clean up my patio and get it ready for winter, clean up my pots and put everything away neatly. I might get some spring bulbs to put in, but I am not sure about that yet. I still can't kneel, so maybe next year.
Of course, I also have to go to the Dr and express my displeasure at his behaviour. Then find out how long I can expect my knee to feel like this. I have things that need to be done and having a bum knee all winter is not going to be any fun.
Well, I have run out of cheese, so I had better quit now.
Have a good day all!
