Gentle rain throughout the morning yesterday. How wonderful. Perhaps my squash and pumpkins will get a little growth spurt. To go with the weeding they got this weekend.
My "job" yesterday was to hem a knit sleeveless overdress with side openings, very simple and elegant. I am happy with how it turned out. I want one more look at it in a bit. It's black and I want to be sure I didn't miss anything, the stitches tend to bury in this kind of knit I always try to do this kind of sewing early in the morning when my mind is fresh.
I missed saying Happy Birthday to my former co-worker yesterday. I mean, I said it to her on facebook, and I'll be sending her a card, late, but still, there is just something about smiling and singing over a cake, as we did for years.
As the summer goes on, my energy level is waning. I think it's the same every summer. I would think that summer would be my happy production time, but it doesn't seem to be that way. I'm finding it very hard to stay motivated.
I looked up how much added sugar is ok and found that the recommended amount is only six grams. Six! Have you looked at a nutritional label? Six grams hardly covers the pesky incidental sugar in bread or crackers or salad dressing. Or half a cookie, maybe.
