Good morning and happy Saturday, friend.
I’m trying to channel fall vibes today despite the fact that it’s going to be a scorcher here in the Bay Area. It’s supposed to hit 93 today! Yikes!
We had plans originally to take Connor to the pumpkin patch, but I think it’s just going to be too darn hot. Might be a pool day instead.
Hey, I’ll take this heat wave as a chance for one last hurrah!
So, remember how earlier this week we were talking about crochet? I found these premade kits online by a brand called The Woobles that are supposed to be good for beginners. Have you heard of this line? I’m tempted to try one, but they seem expensive for what you get.
Am I crazy to think that 30 bucks seems like a lot for a little bit of yarn, a hook, stuffing, an intro video and various small accoutrements? I suppose one could say learning the skill might be worth the initial cost. That said, the bunny is pretty cute.
Before I head out to grab my second cup of coffee (living on the edge!), I just have to share one more thing, because I’m so happy that I did it. Everything that happened last month made me realize I need to do a better job of taking care of myself, so yesterday afternoon, I did a whole lotta nothing. I just rested.
I sat on the couch, painted my nails with a dark, moody fall shade (Chaenl 141 Oiseau De Nuit), and I watched a thriller on Netflix with Benecio Del Toro called “Reptile.”
Anyway, just a little reminder, that rest is a good thing.
