That long weekend was just the thing I needed—I spent most of a day in bed and finally kicked the end of a cold that I've been fighting for a couple weeks. I got a pile of costume alterations done for the dance studio as well, and I've only got three more to do now, which shouldn't take too long. I also finished the upper back of this vest sample and am on the second upper front now. It's at that stage where it looks a bit strange and twisted, but it'll even out and start looking like an actual garment pretty soon.
It feels good to be back to my regular routine after a couple of different weeks. I'm definitely a creature of habit! Last night I spent several hours in the kitchen, which I haven't been able to do for a hot minute, and I made brownies and a coffee cake and a sweet potato and chickpea skillet that I'll probably have for dinner tonight. It was great to know that I had time to cook without worrying about having to get somewhere, and it's so nice to finally have cake in the house again, I really missed it!
