At the Moment:
October is when things start going berserk here. Halloween & Holiday Prep for family and Reware and Detroit Urban Craft Fair. Remodeling details. Late nights working for both of us. Overly scheduled weekends. It is both crazy fun and overwhelmingly busy. I won’t lie though, I love it! I am truly, truly weird.
Della is absorbing so much and knows so many words. She doesn’t say many of them other than “yeah” or “no” most of the day though. Like a tiny Silent Bob, she just takes it all in and lets her loud brother talk for her most of the time, other than laughing all day. Roy is loving school and is so stoked for Halloween. He is going to be Jake from the Neverland Pirates, and he is pretty dang adorable in that tissue thin costume that I didn’t make myself (but I did make Della’s fox costume!).
I ran another 5K in October, my first since my crazy knee injury earlier this year – and it felt great. Unfortunately, Dan’s old injury came back to haunt him and he wasn’t able to run the marathon he has been training months for – a major bummer. But we will rebuild him. He will be stronger, better, faster – and he’ll run that marathon next year!
Thanks to everyone who ordered Record Notebooks after my big announcement earlier this week! Thanks for all the reposts and encouragement, too. Feeling super gracious and excited now!
Making: Over 100 new pairs of record earrings, plus lots of other new jewelry for the shop coming soon & even a few new baubles for me. I also made Della’s Halloween costume (from a vintage shirt!) and some Halloween decorations with Roy.
