I have not been active…if you have noticed but it is because of the anxiety that has been driving me crazy and making me feel hopeless. I have had a quiet week at home and I spent time making some interesting items for the flea market tomorrow. I am going to try it for the first time. They have this major fleamarket at DeAnza College in Cupertino. I hear that this might be a viable option. I have been systematically cleaning out all of the closets in the house. I redid my closet and threw away unnecessary items. My sewing items are all now organized. I cleaned out and tidied the garage and overflow food pantry. Wow, I threw away tons of expired food. I then moved onto the hall closet. That has been streamlined. Tell me how a boy who lives in California has 9 jackets. I then moved onto my pantry. I ordered 20 mason jars on Google express and I cleared out the pantry…again …expired food coming out of my ears. That has been cleared and now I have put everything in bottles. I will post a picture once the organization is done. I decided to look around the garage for items that I have made so I will be taking a few items to the flea market tomorrow. I found dolls, baby toys and other items to take tomorrow. I was also bored so I decided to spend a day at home quietly making greeting cards from scraps that I have around the house. I ended up making almost 30 greeting cards with reusing cards etc. I think that they are really nice. I found ribbon in the clearance bin at Joann’s fabrics. I found a bunch of “Frozen” and “minion” ribbon and in the spirit of keeping busy, I managed to make 20 bows. I have never made hairbows on barrette clips before but I think that they are very cute. I got glue on my Lululemon pants but I managed to iron it off so it was not as disastrous as it could have been.
I have to be there at 6:30am…yikes.
I have not been posting very much because I have not been up for doing much of anything. The paralyzing anxiety has been getting the better of me. Of course, it would be great if I still had Jean to help. My memory is shot to hell because I am so anxious all of the time. I must say going to yoga twice a week is good for my mind, body, and soul. One class is Restorative yoga and the other is Yin Gentle I will try and go more once things settle down. The anxiety has been so trying that I decided to give CBD oil a try…..well actually I bought gummies for this company Purekana. I will let you know what I think. I took one this evening after a very anxious day and two lorazepam yesterday. I might be imagining it but I am feeling a little more mellow this evening. This is not an endorsement but just information on where I got the gummies. https://purekana.com/products/cbd-vegan-gummies-25mg-each/
I have started working on fall designs but I am reluctant to actually make any until I get some sales from my existing inventory.
Oh well. Here goes nothing. Hopefully, I will have enough energy to report back on the results of the flea market jaunt. https://www.deanza.edu/fleamarket/
