No, it is not Indian Summer here in Central Illinois. We were getting spoiled with weather in the 50-70 degrees; and, windows open day and night. I shouldn’t complain as I’m not in the path of Hurricane Florence. I just prefer the winter over the summer. The more snow we get, the happier I am.
I’m obviously NOT working up in the attic today and I missed going up there in the early morning, when it was cool. I had an appointment this morning, then travel to the next town to go grocery shopping. I live in a small town that is without a grocery store, so I travel about 10 miles to pick up some items needed for dinner. While there, I met up with friends and had lunch at their local fast food joint. By the time I got home, the attic was way too hot.
I worked a bit on my office. After a while, I needed to change gears. I realized I had never pulled out the instructions on the Vintage Simplicity pattern. It was as I thought. One of the possibilities does not have ruffles, so I can use that for my male or uni-sex aprons. The instructions are easy and straightforward. Ditto for the instructions on the adult bib patterns.
I looked at the menu on my calendar. Then I realized when making it up, I assumed the weather would remain cool. 85 degrees and we are having mexican tortillini soup, cornbread and….wait for it…..Pumpkin Bread for dessert. It’s mid September, the leaves are falling; and, not too early for fall favorites. However, it doesn’t fit with the weather and the central air running.
It’s Friday! What are your plans for the weekend? We are babysitting our son’s dog (grand-puppy) and I’ll continue purging the office. I’m determined to have it done before Friday of next week, when the heat is supposed to finally break. After that, I can start designing my first prototype apron and bib!
Everyone have a great weekend and we hope those of you affected by Florence are safe and you receive all assistance needed.
