First up today is a look at some fabric I got last week. This is the fabric that has been haunting me for the last few days and the top I’m making out of them is nearly complete. I may just leave you with this tease for awhile before I show off what has come of all this pink. And yes, it is a LOT of pink.
I have mentioned before that I am calendar challenged. I have trouble using calendars. I’m sure some of you are wondering how it is possible to have trouble using calendars — and if you are, I wish I were more like you. Others of you might know what I mean. I put stuff on my calendar, but if you don’t look at the calendar, it doesn’t matter if the information is there or not.
Of course, today’s problem wasn’t even really about the calendar. I
did look at the calendar this morning. I knew that I had a dentist’s
appointment this morning at 9:30. We talked about it several times
over the weekend — I was supposed to call beforehand to make sure that
with the health insurance change that we experienced at the first of
the year, that our dentist was still in-network. I thought about this
appointment several times this morning while lying in bed, while I was
in the shower, while I was driving the boys to school.
You see where this is going, don’t you?
The last time I remember thinking about it was during that trip to
school. After that, it never crossed my mind again. Well, until the
phone rang at 9:45 and I knew instantly who it was and what I had done.
Thankfully, I live about 2 minutes away and they were still able to fit me in.
I suppose I could try tying a string around my finger in the morning in
order to remind myself that I needed to remember something.
Do you think I would actually remember why the string was on my finger, though?
Another picture for today:
My thrift store finds from last week. I also got a pair of khaki carpenter’s jeans that are a perfect fit and are in brand-new condition. The upper right is a denim dress which is a little big, but I liked the back detail and the buttons down the side. I don’t know if I’ll embellish it or not. The sweater below it is prettier in person — it’s a dark purple on the top. The denim skirt is really cute and fits perfectly — the back is actually shorter than the front and I really like the ruffle detail. I will probably alter the skirt in some way (some day). The red sweater is another one that I don’t know what I’m going to do with it. I’m wearing it today and I like it, but it is a terrible string magnet. Or maybe it’s just because the strings are all pink and white today and they are terribly obvious….
I should also mention that while my dentist didn’t find anything wrong, it sure felt like he was scraping off all of the enamel on my teeth today. My mouth still feels a bit raw and achy. It matches the bruised spot on my back side where I stood up into the side of my quilting machine table over the weekend. Ouch. That’s what I get for vacuuming, I guess.
