One of the things I found most surprising once I started learning to sew was that sewing is about 30% measuring and cutting, 50 % ironing, and 20% actual sewing.
In other news, two weeks ago, Steve introduced Poetry Night. I think it's destined to be a family tradition. We take turns choosing a theme and style of poetry, and then on Saturday night, everyone reads their poems aloud. I say "everyone" because everyone who is in the house on Saturday night has to participate. Thankfully, my mom was eager to be included and she actually finished her poem before we had started working on ours.
Wind, Clouds, Sky, Sunrise, Let’s go
Wheels, air, earth, sunset
Suitcase in my hand
The open road stretches out
Home seems far behind
I find it so interesting that short poems, written in the same style, with the same theme, can be so different. As I was writing mine, I had this idea in my head that Steve and Mom were probably writing almost the same thing as me.
Steve hasn't chosen next week's theme yet, but I'll keep you posted!
Today was a super exciting mail day- TWO fall magazines! I'm hoping to sneak in some time to look at them once I finish all my work today. Both covers have me wishing (again) for pumpkins!
