Hope you had a nice weekend. Ours was great – it was warm and sunny. We spent a decent amount of time outside – walked on South Congress Saturday afternoon and at a park Sunday. I hadn’t been back to South Congress in a long time, and it’s changed a LOT. It bums me out – back in the “old days,” you could shop at vendor markets on weekends with live music playing in the background, and food trailers nearby to grab a bite to eat. These things still exist, but so much of the “old” South Congress has been torn down in favor of condos and fancy hotels, so the vendor markets and food trailers have been reduced. Shops I enjoyed closed, or had to move because rent was too high. It’s just not the same. I don’t even feel like I belong because the vibe is totally different – a lot of Instagram influencer wannabes. It makes me sad.
I did buy a print at a shop for when I move – something to remember this place by. Because even if it’s changed, it’s still an amazing place, and I’ll miss it a lot when I move.
I finished up the baby blanket for little E! I will type it up for my next blog. I also sent her a book for her to share with her older brother – I didn’t want her older brother to feel left out 🙂 (I’m the oldest in my family – I get it!)
And I’m on Week 3 of the CAL. I’ve been trying to do little projects here and there, but I find myself really wanting to focus all my time on this project. I’ll take it! The separator moved much faster this week, and I really am enjoying the embroidery.
I’d better get ready for work like a responsible adult. Have a great Tuesday!
