I am having a hard time believing August is coming to an end as I wanted to get more done during the month.
Writing has not been very forthcoming the past few weeks as I’ve been rather distracted by sewing projects. Last weekend, I help my sister and brother-in-law paint the baby’s room then we went fabric shopping. My sister asked me to make curtains and a wall décor item for the room. We found a really nice Australian themed nursery print which made my sister extremely happy. The baby’s room has an Australian theme because my sister likes Koalas and both were living in Surfers’ Paradise when they met.
I have occasionally ventured out of the house to the local coffee shop and for write-ins but finding myself more interested in going home to work on sewing/housework than to write. Nevertheless, some writing has been accomplished – just not as much as usual.
At this point in time, I am hoping to get the baby’s stuff completely done by the end of August so I can spend September focused on the house, writing, and prep for NaNoWriMo. I really need to get all the housework done. I am completely exhausted and disillusioned by the decluttering process now. I just want it done so I can devote time to other things. I know I have said such before but distractions and the disillusionment got the best of me and held me back. I am hoping to move beyond these hindrances and forge ahead finally.
I’d also like to get a lot done because, soon, my nephew will be arriving and it would be best for the house to not be in chaos when he does.
In about two weeks, it will be the release day for Moments of Self: Volume One – consisting of five chapbooks that were previously released as 99 cent ebooks.
Later this week, there will be a few sewing-oriented posts as I forgot to write and post one last week for Baby Quilt #1. I have remembered to take pictures of the various stages with that project. I meant to take pictures of the beginning of the progress on the curtains and wall decor but did not remember in time. 😦 There is another sewing project in the works but it is a surprise so it will not be mentioned much until after October 27th aka day of the baby shower.
