Wow, I’m really honored that some of you have missed my posts! Everything is fine, I have just been working very long hours and have had precious little free time the past two months. I’m finally making friends with my new schedule (after much arranging and rearranging) and have been able to actually spend a little time (only a few hours a week but it’s better than nothing) in the sewing room.
A few weeks ago, The Boyfriend (geez, that sounds so juvenile but I don’t know what else to call him!) and I took some much-needed time off and drove up to Dunnellon to visit his parents. Although we were only there about 36 hours it was nice to get a break from the usual routine.
Bryan’s parents have a pontoon boat so we took a leisurely cruise down the Rainbow and Withlacoochee Rivers. This is the Florida I always imagined from Walter Farley’s The Black Stallion’s Ghost - breathtaking and spooky at the same time. Unfortunately, we only saw one small alligator and I wasn’t quick enough with the camera to capture him. But I did manage to snap a few sunbathing turtles.
Unfortunately, I didn’t spot a single manatee.
It was also nice to have a few nights off from cooking! Ack, I am seriously hating my hair here after having it cut by someone new just before the trip. The hunt for a new hairdresser continues…
I promise I’ll get a few sewing pics up next week. I haven’t made anything terribly exciting, just a few work dresses and a top. I’m anxious to get the obligatory sewing finished so I can start on my Prada lace jacket – Ann found the most beautiful lace for me at Kashi’s – and my Burberry raincoat (or jacket, haven’t really decided yet).
Before I go I want to congratulate The Boyfriend’s team on being ranked #1 in the nation! St. Thomas Aquinas’ game vs. Deerfield Beach will be nationally televised Friday night on CBSC. If my family’s watching look for me on the sidelines!
