I think I probably do have to do some work tomorrow, as there’s a set of SLF and Serendib things I have to finish up AND I have a screenplay pilot to revise that I was hoping to finish before the end of the year, but I successfully managed to take one more day off from working today. Go, me. I did clean up the first floor, finishing putting away some things that got left around in the chaos of getting ready to go out of town for a week, and I made dinner for the family.
I also did a tiny bit of nursing of Kavi and Kevin, who are both down with colds — I think Kavi will likely be better by tomorrow, having spent two solid days in bed, but poor Kevin had a 101 fever today, and is looking quite miserable. Anand helped out with taking on Kavi’s chores, without complaining even. Oh, and I took Ellie to the vet; we’re trying some fluid infusions to see if that makes her more comfortable in her old age. They seem to be helping? Maybe?
But otherwise, I goofed off. I tried making more zippered pouches, and I didn’t make any actual mistakes on the last one, though it still takes me a while to figure out how to install the linings properly each time — I’ll get it eventually. I’m planning to sew 4-5 more tomorrow, which should lock it into my brain, fingers crossed.
And I read another T. Kingfisher book (I’m working my way through her horror books; I don’t normally read horror, but hers are more like suspense, not gorefests), and watched the latest Midsummer Murders (Acorn), good company for sewing, and also an Emma Thompson movie that was silly and forgettable, except it’s Emma Thompson, so I happily watched it anyway (The Love Punch, Netflix) — Pierce Brosnan was reasonably charming in it.
Then I watched Tara Vs. Bilal, a Gujarati-London…I’m not sure whether to call it a romantic comedy, exactly, as there’s a lot of drama, but there’s also a lot of comedy, and I liked it a lot. It also made me cry at one point, so good job them. On Netflix. (There are a couple of tough themes in here, but I don’t want to spoil their effect in the film, so maybe check before watching if that’s a concern.) Lots of the film is in Gujarati, so not a good sewing / knitting movie for me — I had to read all those subtitles.
It’s supposed to be a high of 53F tomorrow, which is shockingly warm, so the plan for tomorrow is to alternate yardwork, SLF and Serendib work, writing, and sewing. Sounds nice.
