This winter is the third time I've taught sewing classes. With each session, I find myself in greater disbelief: people want to come over to my house during the day and use my ironing board and chat about fabric with me?!? Okay! Where do I sign up?!?
So, needless to say, sewing class is delightful. We saw the sun for a bit yesterday, which was also delightful. And a nice reprive from the grayness, which is back this morning and guaranteed to stick around all day.
My plans for the day include some phone calls, making a quiche for dinner (I think I'm going to try this recipe), and cutting a million little triangles for party banners. I've been cutting them all week, with no real end in sight. But it's a cozy task that I can move around the house with me and it's easy to work on if I have a spare 15 minutes here and there.
Today I'm also listening to some lectures for an online class that I'm taking. Have you heard of Coursera? My brother introduced me to it during his last visit and told me about a class on small business growth that he had signed up for. So I signed up too! It just started this week, but I can already tell that I'm going to learn a lot. I can't get over how awesome the whole concept is- tons of interesting classes, taught by professors from major universities, all online, all free- what could be better?
