mental health day

20161010_175403.jpgI don’t know what other companies call it, but sometimes if I’ve had “one of those weeks”, I’ll take Friday off as a spontaneous vacation day just to clear my head.  Today was a bank holiday in the U.S. – Columbus day – and the school was out so I took the day off to do a few things with our son.  Important stuff, like going to Game Stop to get some Pokemon card.  I have no idea what this is; I just know once a month I drive him over there and they give him something free and he’s happy.

I did have some time to get some sewing in before he woke up though so I made some headway on the quilt for my nephew.  I have 2 observations.  One – I love this fabric!  It’s just so soft and cuddly.  I don’t know if Moda sells this as a wide back but this would be great for the back of a quilt as well.  Second – Libs Elliott does a fantastic job with directions.  She explains everything so clearly and concisely and her organizational skills just shine through.

  3. Sometimes a mental health day when you really need it will save you having to take four sick days later.
