Just some random photos from this past week.
This week has been, surprisingly, about rest for me. It's been such a blessing for me to slow down my lil' sewing business. I had two big orders back to back in the last 10 days and that was crazy but now, all is quiet. And oh my goodness - how badly I needed that sewing machine to be turned off for a while. I am not seeking more orders. I am not going to worry about bills or anything of that nature because I trust that life is doing exactly what it is supposed to. The breathing space this week, even this moment, is beautiful.
This month has also been about healing for me. As some of you might now from previous posts I was dealing with back pain and headaches. I have had a much better month, not perfect- but much better. And I plan to continue on.
This week was also pretty momentous for me because I went clothes shopping at a retail store (read: not second-hand) for the first time in close to a decade!!!! Seriously!! I stopped listening to the voice that told me I couldn't afford it and instead asked Brad to let me shop in peace and he was like...Of course! Go buy yourself some clothes! (I realized then he was actually saying..YES WOMAN YOU DRESS LIKE CRAP! STOP WEARING YOGA PANTS FROM 1995!!!)
Anyway, I hardly spent a thing it turned out, because I went to one of those new-fangled chain places that sell new clothes so super cheap. SO cheap you are like...ummm...how can they sell leggings for $3.80? And then I got home with two big bags of awesome things and I was like... hmmmmmm. So I was moved to research this particular company and supposedly they don't adhere to the ol' child labor rules very well. I was like: Crap. I knew killer $18 yoga pants were too good to be true!
IS there a company that manufactures clothing consciously and also doesn't charge astronomical prices? (I love Athleta, for instance, but the prices are a little pricey, no?) So I guess it's back to the thrift stores for me. Bummer. (Unless you have any other ideas.)
Also in the news: Just yard work. You know. Trying to beat the drought with drought tolerant plants and what-have-you. It's not flipping easy. I don't know if you've ever been in a drought, but when you see someone has placed their sprinkler so it's watering their sidewalk instead of their grass you're like...WHAT AN ASSHOLE! And then if you happen to leave your hose on overnight...you just figure it's probably a good idea to just shoot yourself. That's what it's like living in a drought. It's not pretty. I'm trying to force the girls to take baths together.
They're like: NO WAY I DON'T WANT TO TAKE A BATH WITH HER!!!!!!!.
And I'm like: Yes. You're gonna.
And they're like: WHHHHHHHYYYYY?
And I'm like: Because we're in a drought.
And they're like: WHHHHYYYYYYYYY? (crying and screaming)
I hate the f****** drought.
Anyway. For those of you following the campain for my new album, update is I've raised nearly a quarter of my goal! We have a start date in the studio which is in the first week of Oct. Can't wait!
I am going to be checking in with you very soon with more fun updates! I hope all of you are doing great. xoxoxo
