Dream Day at an awful time

I am home ALONE. ALONE without having appointments, without having to worry about the school calling for me to come get Oliver, without any real responsibilities at all.

The boys are out for the day. They went to the Long Beach Aquarium.

This would be awesome if I didn't feel like death warmed over. Which to be fair is loads better then feeling like death, which is where I was yesterday. (Mommy brain for the win! I just typed wear and were before I realized the correct word was where!)

I have a "want to- do" as opposed to a "have to do" list 30 miles long and really I think the only things I can do it sit here on my computer, read another book, or watch more TV.

Hopefully I can find the energy to shower today.

I'll be home ALONE one day again. Right?

Oh the weather outside is frightful. . .

but the Air Conditioning is so delightful!

I love it when a plan comes together, even if it comes together a year late.

Last year I bought a super cute pattern for a Christmas stocking for myself from Sew Lola . I never got around to making it because of all the construction going on.

Fast forward almost a year. . .

Since it's almost 90 degrees here today, what could be more fitting then sewing Christmas stockings? Mainly because we no longer have our window AC units in the house and my sewing room is one of two rooms with air conditioning (Oliver's is the other).

A quick trip to my mega mart sewing emporium for some cute fabrics for the boys and some inexpensive felt and I was all set.


I'll let you guess which one is for me.

I still need to embroider names on them, I still need a name for one of them, but that is something I can do while hanging out with Peter watching TV.
