460: you don't suck


I am procrastinating working on book projects.

That's right, I said "book".

Not a sewing book, a non-sewing craft book.


Lately I am hot for:

-watermelon, obviously

-CrossFit, which I do 5x a week (holy shit)

-my garden

-mason jars

-wearing skirts


Here, in case you needed to hear it, like I always do:

I'm pretty sure that I love you, whoever you are that's reading this.

Ooh, CrossFit! My son might start going soon. He's training/preparing to join the Marines. After we saw the CF games on TV, he tried to do a hand stand push up. It didn't end well!

Looking forward to your next book! Yay!
