I am driven to sew

I love sewing these days. I grew up with sewing, but for 40 years I did practically none. I helped my daughter make prom dresses and other small things. Now it’s like I can’t stop. I would rather be sewing than most anything else. It’s crazy. It will never make any money.

Too Busy

I am too busy. Even though I am still doing a lot less than I used to do, I still feel too busy. My ToDo list is exploding all the time. Not sure what to do about this. I could quit teaching coding, but what little money it makes is still helpful. Not sure what to do about it.

New Job

I found a new job that pays more for teaching kids to code. It pays $20 per hour and my old one paid just $15. I have taught one class for the new job. It went fine, although with 15 kids in the class it’s pretty crazy. Being online there is a limit to how much craziness kids can cause, thank goodness. My Saturday class only has five kids, but I am not crazy about teaching on Saturdays. There are always pros and cons.

Sad

I am having trouble with sadness these days. I think it’s all because of Covid-19. My hubby worries about getting sick because he is diabetic. The consequence of this is that I go nowhere. We have just recently started going to the grocery store since we are vaccinated. This is beginning to take it’s toll on me. We have ordered new exercise equipment, since exercise helps depressed people and he doesn’t want me to go to the athletic club. We will see. I expect it’s not going to be an instant cure.

Going Fishing

My husband is going fishing tomorrow. I wish we were going hiking. I have a fishing license now and could go fishing with him, but who would take care of the dogs? I suppose we should get the dogs used to going fishing. So far no dogs have ever ridden in the boat. Well, luckily I am pretty happy just sewing and dealing with dogs. Something new would be good too.

Next Year

Stehekin was so much fun that I made a reservation for next year. Next year we are doing Mt Rainier for a whole week. We will be staying inside the park at National Park Inn. There will probably still be snow on the higher trails, but I think we will be able to find hikes. There are lots of hikes there. I am hoping for wild flowers.
