I am looking forward to beginning my classes on Monday. The plan next week is to get through at least 2 lessons and mix up a batch of indigo for some shibori dyeing and batiking. This will be my first experience in actually cooking up my own indigo dye from natural pre-reduced indigo (not synthetic.)
I really need to get the rest of my cotton and linen dyed for Sabrina's college quilt so I can start sewing it. I only have until January to finish it - and I've only got about 1/2 of the fabric dyed.
quieting down a bit - which I am truly, truly looking forward to.
I do love our adventures - but I am so ready to stay put for a while and focus on home and get back to basics.
My workouts continued throughout the summer - but not with the regularity I would have liked due to surgeries and vacations. Accordingly, THAT is one thing that is going to get put on the front burner. I miss my "set in stone" workout regime - so that is priority number 1. Priority number 2... While I have maintained the 19 pound weight loss I achieved over the last 8 months - I am going to get back on the Eat to Live road with a more narrowed-down focus on quality - replacing more still of the grains and meat with vegetables and legumes. A change I've been wanting to make now - for a while.
I have a "pinterest" page dedicated to Eat to Live. Also - I've read Fuhrman's book (Eat to Live) twice now. I think I'll get it back out and read parts of it again.
Hey Gizmo..... "What Are You Drinking?"
I know that's not coffee.
