I got off work around 4:00 am and came home to crash and get up and get things done that I wanted to accomplish this short weekend. I was able to divide and conquer and run some errands and cross things off my long, ever growing to-do list. I priced some sewing machines, attempted to sign up for a beginner class, but it was full. I picked out some beautiful material and bought an easy to start with pattern to get myself started in making some outfits for myself. It is my goal to get proficient and style and design classic pieces that I like and that I want to wear. This is a new adventure for me and I have the room to create here in my new home.
I have such a deeper appreciation for my home and I want to put my stamp on things. I just do not want this to be another place that I let dust and junk accumulate. I want to create a beautiful home sanctuary that is relaxing, peaceful and filled with the grace of God. I am slowly breaking my ties to my childhood home, knowing I will never live there again. I think I am okay with that. Time to move forward. I keep telling myself that Moma isn't coming back to sit in her chair and watch Oprah while going through her mail. Moma now has the best seat in the house and I said it once, I will say it again, God answered my prayers and healed her, for this I am truly thankful!
