This past weekend I did something that I hardly ever do. I spent nearly my entire weekend doing nothing and it felt wonderful. My weekends are usually jam packed with trips, events, projects, etc so it’s very rare for me to spend a weekend doing nothing. Honestly I hadn’t intended to do nothing. I had big plans to work on some sewing projects after cleaning the house the universe knew I needed the break, even if it wasn’t my idea.

Saturday morning I slept in a bit and then went for a run at Lake Johnson. I took the longer dirt trail because I really hate running on pavement. I ran for about a mile and then hiked the remaining 1.5 miles of the trail. It was such a gorgeous day and the lake is always lovely. I had a great time. After getting home I rested for a few minutes before taking a nice long hot shower. After the shower I had plans to clean the house, sew, and watch movies. That didn’t really happen. I ended up taking a nap, watching a chick flick, and taking a second small nap before meeting friends for dinner. I never nap but it really did feel great, even if I didn’t get anything done.

Sunday I got a little more accomplished. We went out for breakfast. I put away the last of the laundry while Coty started some more. I finished the arming vest and got a little cleaning done. We played WOW. It was nice.

But now I really need to get in some serious sewing time. I’ve been working on my jacket and I need to get pictures of it and my forehead cloth up online. I’m also working on a Robe a la Francaise for a party this fall. The one I’m working on is based on the one depicted in Arnold’s PoF. I’ve fitted the lining for the bodice but the fashion layer of the front bodice is rather different and I’m having some issues with getting it fitted. I got it pretty close last night before I had to give up and go to bed. I’m going to work with it some more tonight after I vacuum the house and get some more laundry in.

I’m beginning to think that what I need to do is schedule time for sewing just like I schedule time for the gym. I think it would help me get more accomplished especially since our weekends seem to fill up so quickly. I think I only have 2 or 3 free weekends between now and Dragoncon and I have some small projects I’d like to get done for that as well.
