No, I have not become a barista :) My son is going to school 1/2 an hour from our house and he is only ther for 2 1/2 hours, so it doesn’t make sense for me to drive home just to turn around and drive back into town. I was a little overwhelmed with having to spend 2 1/2 hours in town doing something everyday!!! I am quite the homebody and I enjoy my flexible schedule – I realize now that I have taken that for granted.
I have a long list of felted items that I need to work on and my mom suggested I take my felting to Starbucks. This made me laugh at first because I am not a coffee drinker and the idea of needle felting in a coffee shop just seemed silly.
It took some gumption to pull my felting stuff out of my bag and start needle felting on Monday, but now I have become quite comfortable there. The atmosphere is pleasant and they have some wonderful breakfast items. The blueberry oat bars are awesome!!! Here is a recipe for blueberry oat bars that the creator claims to be just as good, if not better. I will have to make some this weekend.
I have accomplished a LOT with my block of undistracted time…
and today I helped at my son’s school. Along with checking stuff off my to do list, I am also educating people about wool and felting! Several people have been quite intrigued with the process.
I am looking forward to a few days at home :)
