Sundays are generally a combination of rest, reading, housework, yardwork, projects, and tidying up the house to prepare for the teaching week. In many ways, with the exception of usually talking to mother on the telephone, Sunday is almost like any other day here.
Today’s project centered around the curtains in the living room. I have one large window that faces out onto Shroyer Road, and two small rectangular windows that onto the driveway. I usually place of valance above the two smaller windows. Since I seldom find what I need to match the drapes on the larger window, I generally have to make my own. Since I do not sew, nor care to, I can do wonders with the iron-on tape to make my hemlines. This is what kept me busy for about 2 1/2 hours today. I constructed two valances and had enough material from the curtains I cut down in size to make table clause for the end tables in the living room.
All in all it looks pretty nice in the living room. Since the new furniture has no pattern, the curtains do. And in some ways, they are not like me at all. And if that’s okay. It is kind of fun branching out beyond my own sense of what is normal style for me.
While chatting with mother I began feeling waves of nausea and episodes of extreme perspiration. I didn’t feel warm, or as though I had a fever, but I was a tad bit clammy. A couple hours later I am still feeling a bit nauseous.
There is nothing on this evening’s docket. I thought about going to a movie, however I really don’t like going alone. I may think of going to a movie Wednesday night.
I will teach lessons for the next three days, and then I will have 11 days off for my summer vacation. I am hoping to complete some of my in-house projects the next few days so that I have nothing to do but write, relax, maybe take a day trip or two, and just enjoy myself. It would also be enjoyable to spend some time with one or two particular individuals.
The skies indicate bad weather approaching, I just received a text from the news station announcing a severe thunderstorm warning. It also looks as though the wind has picked up quite a bit. Hopefully, the rain will be out of the area by 10 o’clock when we usually take our evening walk.
