Tuesday, I took an extra day off work to recuperate from the holiday. Not that we did much, but sometimes after a holiday taking that extra day helps. It was fun to see all my Facebook friends posting about how they had wished they had taken an extra day and there I was, welded to my couch, laughing at them while they attempted to navigate rush hour traffic. I had told Matt I planned to do nothing, so he shouldn't expect to walk in after work and see a spotless house. I enjoy making sure my husband has low expectations so that when I do wash a dish, he is properly impressed. I stitched the majority of the day and watched movies and reality tv. I didn't get as much stitching done as a I would have liked to. Number one reason: IT IS SOOO HOT IN MY HOUSE!
No sir, we do not have air conditioning. June, not so bad. Sure, there were a couple nights here and there we might have had some trouble sleeping, but with the aid of a few fans in the bedroom it was okay. Then July came. What a biotch! Plus, as I have mentioned in previous posts, our couch....it's leather. Oh yes, which requires me to wear PANTS year round. If not, well, it is a lesson in pain trying to get yourself out of the band aid like clutches of that
Instead of putting Venetian Opulence away, it has become an upstairs/downstairs sort of thing. Last week while Matt was working last night I took my sampler upstairs into the bedroom and worked on it while catching up on Private Practice on the computer. It was a nice break from Venetian, and that evil couch. I've decided to do that for awhile.
Matt is working tonight, so I will be upstairs at my desk stitching away on the sampler in front of a high powered fan. Hopefully, I can make some progess. Let's not talk about stitching over one on 40 count, we will just agree that I was experiencing temporary insanity when I went with that brilliant idea.
