I am slowly moving back into my sewing space. It is taking some time because I am cleaning and reorganizing as I move things back in again. I had a nice little stash of everything in the main bedroom while all the kids were here for Covid lock down. We are back on lock down again, but we have lost Anna to summer camp. Honestly, right now I'm thinking that she is safer in Maine than all of us in Florida. They tested all of the campers and counselors before they left and after they got there and then are isolating for two weeks to make sure everyone is safe before opening up all the regular camp activities to mixed groups.
In Florida the governor has closed the bars again and reduced the capacity of restaurants to 50% starting Monday. Honestly, given his choices so far, I am surprised he chose to step back from the original opening plan. I hope that it will help, but schools will be opening very soon and I'm not feeling super safe right now. A few of our older and sicker teachers retired at the end of this year which makes me very grateful that they won't be exposed to classrooms in the fall.
So yesterday I remembered that we had not caulked the new baseboards before throwing everything haphazardly into my sewing room for temporary storage as we refinished the rest of the floors last summer. I have no plans to refinish the floors right now, but I did spend yesterday very up close with several tubes of caulk. the wood trim is gorgeous now, clean and tidy. That led me to notice several spots where the paint had been dinged or dented in the past year. So today it was me and a can of touch up paint getting busy. I do lead a glamorous life as you can tell.
After all that though, I started to reoccupy my sewing room. I felt that there was too much wasted space on the bookshelves and wanted to squeeze in a few more scrap baskets. So I stacked my yardage for each color under the corresponding basket and moved the neutrals down to the bottom. This is my entire stash on one bookshelf. Isn't it pretty? Mostly scraps, but that is what I tend to use, so it all works out well.
I did a grocery pickup yesterday and they were out of the pizza dough I ordered. I decided to make some in the bread machine instead and used up the very last of our yeast. I haven't been able to find any in the local grocery stores. I guess I'll start making more cookies and fewer loaves of bread. Life is full of difficult decisions after all :)
Still giving thanks everyday for a morning sunrise walk. Its been super hazy the last couple of days. Kurt thinks it is the dust storm.
