Hi readers! I have so much to catch you up on.
It’s been a hectic weekend of house guests, handicrafts and health scares. (I so love alliteration, literally love).
First of all, one of my darling friends is staying with us. I love her, she makes me laugh and having her here has been so fun. Now, I did do some tidying and cleaning to prep for her arrival, and I do always have this sorta of perfectionist drive to make sure anyone in my home – whether just stopping by or living with me – is comfortable, happy, and accommodated. I truly believe in the art of hospitality.
So I was busy getting ready for the arrival of my friend…. when I got a phone call from the Women’s Pastor of our church.
Turns out: I’ve been invited to sell my tie dye at my Church’s Women’s Ministry event that’s happening this evening, Monday, December 5th. I love my church’s women’s group so much. And I’m super excited about this event. And, the chance to sell tie dye to a group of people, in person is so wow for me. So exciting! I even wrote a silly, frantic blog about it all.
But, alas, this all isn’t exactly what life had in store for me.
I woke up Friday morning not feeling so well. Not feeling well at all. I decided to give it a couple hours and see how I did…
I ended up in the ER. I got some sugar and some fluids, they did a ton of tests. And they watched me for a little while. It was pretty fun. Not!
They eventually let me go. But it was a crummy weekend as far as my health goes. I wasn’t feeling so hot. And yet I had so much tie dye to make!!!
But where there’s a will, there’s a way. I made so many new pieces, experimented with a new-to-me technique, and I got a LOT done.
I have to run out the door, but I can’t wait to show off the new things we created. And I’m proud of myself for hanging in until today. If I have to go back to the hospital tomorrow, so be it – my goal was to stay out until after the women’s event!
As always, thanks for reading! xoxo, hhr
