Morning all. A little addendum to the post on what do I do on pain days. I also will take hemp oil, 3 ibuprofen, and go and get the grocery order. I’ll then bring it in, and over the next 3 hours put it away. That’s what I did yesterday. It was a grand level of pain, and holy crap, we had been out of everything for over a week.
Hubsy asked me to do a grocery order, and at first I said no. He then said, “do a small one”. 400 hundred later, I picked up the groceries after 7 pm. It took 2 doses of hemp oil, and the extra ibuprofen, to get the groceries into the house. Here’s what the aftermath is. I got 4 hours of sleep. It’s now almost 2 in the o dark thirty, and I really don’t want to move.
Yet Hubsy has an appointment this morning, and I’m awake slurping coffee like it is manna from the heavens. Wait, it is, wrong metaphor. I’m slurping coffee like it is more important that freaking air… nevermind.
By the way, sometime in the next 5 hours, I will be working on the 2nd dress. I went through the clothing, and sent all of the items I could to their next home. I need to get the next dress done, and then the next dress after that. Dresses are much more comfortable than anything, and once I have enough dresses to cover me, I’m going to move on to tunics for leggings.
Those tunics, when no humans no related by marriage are present, will be worn without the leggings. Here’s the end goal, to pitch everything not a hat that is fast fashion. I want breathable clothing that is comfortable. Screw societal norms. Societal norms are itchy, constricting, and painful as hell.
There is one garment I will miss, and that is the last pair of bib overalls. However, I can make myself a pinafore at any time, and in fact the pattern for a pinafore isn’t that different from some of the sewing I’ve already done.
Next on the list of mayhem, is to buy the fabric for undergarments. I really want a smooth shift or 3 to wear under dresses, and I want a knitting apron to wear.
WTF is a knitting apron?
I’m glad you didn’t ask, I’m going to tell you anyway. It is an apron with pockets that fit a skein of yarn. It has a pocket big enough to hold a work in progress. It’s a garment that a person wears that holds a few knitting tools and that person can knit on the fly.
It’s also an apron, a garment designed to protect the dress or other garment that the human wears. It’s simple. This garment also crosses over to other stitcherly products. It can hold cross stitch just as well as a knitting project or a crochet project.
So, I have to get busy.
That said, I also need to order more sewing thread, and some more sewing needles. I believe it is time to get my happy ass to work.
Huge huggage my friends. Please, even on no bones days, take care of yourself. -L
