So, learning to sew wasn’t the only thing I did this weekend.  I also went to the Billfish tournament with my new colleague.  She just moved here from Kansas, by herself, and I know how she feels- she’s far from home, by herself, starting her first “real job”.  I’m trying to be welcoming and hospitable,etc.  We watched the weigh-ins on Saturday night- I saw some of the biggest fish I’ve ever seen in my life. Among them: the winning dolphin (not Flipper, mahi-mahi) at 55 lbs, and the second place tuna at 119 lbs.  That’s a whole lotta fish!
My nephew stayed the night and we got to play and play on Sunday.  He is so much fun- he’s babbling, crawling, standing, trying to walk.  He loves to brush his teeth, follows you around the house. 
Then I sewed my second pillowcase- I could easily get addicted to this sewing thing.  And add it to my other creative addictions.
Today I skipped my regular workout to go to the playgroup for autistic kids- I volunteer as an “adult supervisor”.  When I got to the play group location, it was closed.  And there was no one there.  I called one of my friends whose son is in the group and she told me they changed it to tomorrow night.  I didn’t get a call.  Or an email.  
The trip wasn’t totally wasted.  I went by the mall to get a new pair of shoes for working out- I wore a pair of my work shoes last week when I was on the cross-trainer and my feet didn’t fall asleep.  So I bought another pair in a different color. I bought different laces b/c they have round laces (hate round laces- they don’t stay tied!).  I looked for some capris or pants to wear to the course I am going to next week, but didn’t see anything that I couldn’t live without.  I’ll look again this weekend. 
P.S. Am down 2.5 lbs this week!

  1. Wow, congrats on your loss! I’m jealous.. I’ve been exercising like crazy and keep on gaining. Grr.

    Fishing sounds like fun! You’re a sweet friend, showing her around. I wish I had more people to hang around with here, if only I were closer to my blogfriends. 🙂
