Things that made me smile today…..
– Accomplishing an amazing 2 hour declutter clean-up
– Sewing
– Walking until my thighs ached
– being with friends
– finishing another Magic School Bus book with the kids

I was very tired this morning again.  Although I have managed to get at least 7.5 hours of sleep for the last three nights, this feeling of exhaustion made me grumpy.   I finally decided that maybe my allergies were just going haywire and it was time to take a Sudafed, and what do you know?  About an hour later I felt much better.    So I went at the house, putting away all the clutter that drives me batty, and in about 2 hours I finished.  That left me just a little time to cut out a sewing project.  I could not wait to sit at my sewing machine again.  

This is the Nirunaru pinafore dress from Ottobre in a size 86 from the Spring 2008 issue.  I lengthened the tunic by 6 inches, and I was actually thinking about adding 5 rows of elastic shirring to the bottom hem, but once she tried it on, I decided I liked it just as it is.  It is light and airy, and she really enjoyed wearing it.

I love the colors on this fabric.  It looks really good on her, and I am hoping that I can get the pants made this weekend.

After finishing her shirt, I met with some friends and walked.  It was hot, and it was hard to finish, but we did it.  I think we are all doing a good thing, and even though I hate getting out there, I am really glad that we are sticking to this.  It is fun to be together and it is healthy.  It is good for us in more then one way.
