Day 120 of 2022

The thing Fireball and I did 
was attend our last Broadway Indianapolis show of the season tonight. 
The show was Dear Evan Hansen. 
The fabric clue from yesterday was made into our masks
 based on the shirt Evan is wearing in the show poster. 
The pillowcase on the left has nothing to do with this, 
but since I was at the sewing machine today 
I took the opportunity to make this gift while I had time. 
The machine sounded a bit rattle-y 
so I also took the time to clean out the bobbin area 
and give it a good oiling. 
She sounds so much better now.

Day 119 of 2022

Fireball and I are doing something tomorrow. 
This fabric is a clue. 
Any guesses? 
What are we doing? 
What does this fabric have to do with it? 
So, let's play "what is it?"
Guesses welcome.

Day 118 of 2022

My new address stamp (address hidden here) 
makes note writing a bit more fun. 
I hope the recipients enjoy the whimsy.

Day 117 of 2022

Hi, it's me. 
I went to an event tonight and unfortunately forgot to get a photo
 of the beautiful and delicious doughnut and wine pairings. 
I did however take a photo of myself. 
In November I started a hair journey to create a healthier head of hair 
and to embrace my curly, wavy hair. 
I understand that it can take a long time to repair damaged hair 
and see what the natural state of things really is. 
So I take occasional pictures to compare as I go. 
It will never be perfect, 
but it is definitely improving.

Day 115 of 2022

I have not felt well today. 
I slept for and unusual portion of it 
and was not able to eat until late this evening. 
I am trying to stay hydrated. 
Tomorrow will be a better day.

Day 113 of 2022

One of these gentlemen is having his 92nd birthday next week. 
We pulled off a successful surprise gathering with lots of family. 
Here is a four generation picture of the birthday boy with his son, 
his two grandsons and his great grandson.

Day 112 of 2022

I didn't take any exciting pictures today
 but I really liked the glow from my washing machine. 
It's the simple things.

Day 111 of 2022

Tonight I went to a new-to-me Mexican restaurant. 
After the chips were brought to the table, 
I noticed that there was no salt shaker available, 
so I asked for some salt. 
I was not expecting this, but hey, it works.

See this wall? 
It's very tall. 
It's a very, very, scary tall wall. 
I scaled the ladder to wash the wall. 
I used the mop to reach it all. 
But who will paint this quite tall wall? 
Take a look. 
It's Fireball.

Day 109 of 2022

Sometimes I save my magazines to read later for relaxing. 
Sometimes that time comes days or even weeks later. 
I took the time to look through this one tonight and really enjoyed it. 
There are several things I'd love to DIY when I have the time.

Day 107 of 2022

I made a tart. 
And while it isn't very pretty, it sure was delicious.


Day 106 of 2022

It's time to play a game.

Day 105 of 2022

It was a happy mail day. 
I got the sweetest letter from GB#1
 which included some origami that she thought I'd like. 
It's a raincoat.

Day 104 of 2022

Sibling styling.

Day 103 of 2022

A couple days ago, before the last minute trip out of town, 
I received some happy mail. 
I thought this pattern was so cute 
and can see many opportunities for using these letters. 
I also love that there was a preorder option of a spiral bound copy.

Day 102 of 2022

My shoes broke. It's very sad.

Day 101 of 2022

Matching. Time for heel turns. 
(Photo taken Monday, April 11, 2022)

On Monday Fireball and I made the last minute decision
 to go out of town a couple days earlier than we had originally planned. 
In the flurry of gathering things for an overnight stay, 
I forgot to pack my computer. 
No computer, no blog post. 
I will now try to catch up with the pictures I took on the missing days.

Day 100 of 2022

Yesterday I picked up a new-to-me machine, 
so today I am reading the instruction manual, of course.

Day 99 of 2022

A lullaby plays as the animals that are projected on the ceiling float by. 
I found it quite calming.

Day 96 of 2022

I got a surprising letter today. 
Fifty years. 
I'm not sure how that happened. 
I guess I might consider going. 
We'll see.

Day 94 of 2022

Fireball cut his finger this morning. 
Tonight it was still not staying together. 
He refuses to go see about stitches so I insisted on butterfly bandages. 
Two butterflies and a waterproof bandage later, I think he is set. 
I have asked him to not bend his knuckle. 
I told him he could call me Florence.


Day 93 of 2022

I'm doing late night laundry to get a jump on tomorrow. 
While I'm at it I am enjoying the upgrade in aesthetics
 with my huge glass jar that replaces the box that my detergent comes in.

Day 91 of 2022

The second sock is about to catch up with the first. 
I'll be starting heel flaps soon.
