Friday 7 Quick Takes (vol 127)
It’s already the last week of the month which means it’s no topic week on Totes Awesome Channel!
As I mentioned in the vlog, I’m so excited about making napkins this weekend with my mom. One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to complete 10 sewing/learning projects. My mom once gave me her old sewing machine and within the first attempt to use it without her guidance, I mangled the thread while trying to thread the machine! I had to take it back to Houston and both my parents took turns trying to unravel my mess and free the sewing machine. I thought if I make 6 sets of napkins and make myself thread the machine 6 separate times, the redundancy of the tasks will help me really learn how to thread. As you can see, I’m all about baby steps.
I had a really busy couple of weeks at work and worked longer hours this week, so my reading time has dramatically decreased. Nonetheless, here’s what circulating on my nightstand.

As I’m getting older, my body is going through the first of the aging changes. It used to be I eat all the junk I want and then go to bed and then the food baby would magically disappear when I wake up. This hasn’t been the case in the past few months. It also used to be I can go on 3-4 hours of sleep a night but lately if I don’t get at least 6 hours of sleep, I’m sleeping through my alarm! It used to be I never got heartburn!
I’ve been warned these things will happen but now that they’re here, it is a bit of a depressing lifestyle shock.
Have you seen this one?
I was making cabbage stir fried with eggs. He was my sous chef.
