Blah, blah, blah, long time with no post, blah, blah, blah, reasons, blah, blah, blah, excuses, blah, blah, blah, the end. Moving on...
Summer is here! It suddenly went from jacket weather to summer dress weather, and I love it! I am most definitely a summer girl. The only downside is that I hate it when it's too hot to use the oven comfortably. But it's worth it to be able to run around in skirts and flip-flops. Speaking of which: new blog header! I've been meaning to change from the old fall/winter one for a month or more, but I finally got around to it. Go me.
I have today off, which rocks. I had planned to spend the whole day working on a dress I started last weekend, but I don't think that's going to happen. I'm just not feeling it today, and I don't want to force the sewing. That's no good. So the dress project will take a little longer than I thought, but that's ok. Today has a lazier vibe, I think. I feel like doing a little much-needed housework, reading a bit, and maybe watching a movie or something. Yes, that sounds quite nice.
Also, we bought a car! This is my very first car ever, so I feel like it's a big freakin' deal. We've been relying on public transportation for so long that the ability to go somewhere without checking bus and train schedules feels extremely odd. I mean, if cat food is on sale or something, we could buy more than one giant bag and not have to worry about how in the heck to get it home! The excitement! Of course, I'll be relying on the train almost every day anyway, and I actually love public transportation (even the CTA with all its many, many flaws), but still.
