There are some things that pretty much all of my days this week have in common. I worked pretty much continuously from the moment I got to school to the moment I left, got home and was super exhausted, so needed to take a bit of a nap. And then the naps lasted a little bit longer (I set timers for my naps so I don't just crash). After that I would often get up and play on my phone for a bit. Then maybe a bit more. I am tired. But I have also managed to make some pretty good progress on everything at school. I have lessons planned for all of next week and I think most of the week after. Even the week after that for a couple of classes. I have grades in so currently everything is totally updated. That's good, grades close....soon. Maybe even Monday. Hmm, maybe I'm up to date on everything! I need to look into that... OK, they close on Wednesday. Which means I need to put two assignments in the online gradebook, give, collect and grade the assignments, and hope that I don't get 37 piles of makeup work on Wednesday. I will not be pleased. Anyway, stuff is going fairly well I think. Just keep swimming.
I have managed to get 3 backpacks finished for my live sale. I am planning on making a bunch more likely, but I have these to start. I think they are super cute! Two of them are made with new custom fabrics I got from Carra as a holiday gift. I love the flamingos and palm trees so much! Abd the coffee and cookies print is one I had a small bit of in the past and have run out of. It's good to have more.I also got some sewing done on some of the bareback pads. One of these is going to be a special gift, but the other 3 will be in the live sale. All of them are new prints! I still have to add trim and make the billets and girths, but more progress has been made.
I am working super slowly these days, at least I feel like I am. I am so tired after going full-out at school all day that I don't have a whole lot of energy left for doll work. But I keep on picking away at it. And maybe soon I will have more energy. Right now I am just so cold. I am sick of winter.
