Today is Juneteenth. This is not the first year I’ve been aware of the holiday, but it is close to it. It wasn’t taught in school. I think I heard about the holiday for the first time in the last couple of years. I’m not very proud of that.
I’m working on a small sewing project for Junior Youth – sewing a pocket onto the front of a t-shirt turned tank top so there’s a pouch for JY to carry our newest family member, Benelli. Benelli is a guinea pig, and I don’t know if I’ve mentioned her before.
Unfortunately, since I’m doing it by hand, my right hand started to cramp up when I got about 1/3 of the way through the project, so I’ll have to work more on it tomorrow. Hopefully I can finish it. I may take it with me to do laundry, in fact.
I really don’t mind sewing by hand all that much, but if I was more comfortable with setting up my sewing machine, I 100% would rather be using that. I just don’t have the mental energy for that, which is why I haven’t made any masks yet, either.
I got home early today, as I mentioned. I stayed late to work on getting Dropbox moved to a new hard drive on one of the office computers, so I got home less early than I would have had I bolted at 1 pm. But it was still early, so I took a nap, which was lovely. And now, I’m nearly ready for a nap again. I ate most of a pint of ice cream, and it was delicious. I can see the cats sprawling on their backs with their cute little back legs spread wide, airing out their delicate bits (at least the ones I didn’t have removed in favor of reducing unwanted kitten populations), and they have such good ideas (the naps, not necessarily the sprawl position).
I hope you had a good day. And if you didn’t have a good day, I hope you had an okay day. And if you didn’t have an okay day, I hope tomorrow is better. Loves.
