Back to Work
I have to say that this was one of my favorite vacations I've ever taken. Maybe even better than Italy, well not quite. The time I got to spend with my family was terrific. Husband works nights so Son and I never get to see him on any regular basis. I almost forgot what a great guy it is that I married. This picture was taken from a pueblo at Mesa Verde, CO. What an amazing place it was. Of all the sites we went to, this was my favorite. I'm truly awed by the hard work that went into building the homes and the type of lifestyle these people had. It's hard to understand why they would leave it. I was ready to move in, except where would I plug in my sewing machine? Did you notice I made my outfit. It really did look better before driving a couple of hours and then climbing through cliff dwellings in the hot sun all day.
I probably won't get any sewing done this week. With being gone all last week, I'll have lots of papers to grade and lots of laundry and house cleaning to do. However, I do want to get back to my mini-wardrobe even though the contest was over today, I think. I got the skirt started and the red top cut out so if I can find some time, I can just sit down at the sewing machine and get started. It's supposed to be in the low 90's by the end of the week so getting the skirt and top done would give me something nice, yet comfortable in the heat to wear to work with my new shoes.
