Wings As Eagles: What happened this week?

What happened this week?

Good question! Lots! August turned into September which has brought some cooler days than we've had in quite a while. Dad had the doors and windows open for a couple hours in the morning several days this week. The cooler weather has been nice after those hot summer days.

Plus Jena, Krissa and I have had several conference calls and skype meetings (still working on the skype thing - web cams have issues at times!) with each other and that's been a blast! The trying to get it all figured out has been just about as fun (there have been some not-so-fun-moments) as actually talking to one another. :)

Monday - the 31st. I spent the day getting last minute details uploading for my online classes. I started a second Latte Quilt class with over 100 students enrolled. I'm thrilled beyond thrilled! I can't believe all the interest in this quilt! Keeping up with two large classes in addition to everything else will be a challenge, but exciting!

Tuesday - The dentist. If there's one thing I hate doing, it's having dental work done and my mouth being numb. It makes my stomach turn just thinking about it. I went in with the thought of having only part of my mouth without feeling and ended up getting out of there with both my right and left sides of my face numb, even up to my nose and ear! My mouth still isn't quite back to normal almost a week later.

Wednesday - Sorting and organizing orders and inventory. With the start of a new class always brings an increase in orders, email and inventory. Which all has to be sorted, filed, packed and shipped. Some things I've just managed to get in and it ends up going right back out the door. Email can always be a challenge to stay on top of each day, but so far all has gone really smoothly!

Thursday - Planning future classes. My local quilt guild had their meeting that night and I had paperwork to plan, prepare and get ready for a couple local classes I am teaching there. It's been a while since I've taught a local demo class, so I'm looking forward to doing that in November and March.

Friday - Cleaning, cleaning, cleaning. Friday is my normal day for doing laundry and my weekly house cleaning chores, but for some reason I was on a cleaning spree. Much to my delight I got lots of it accomplished! More than I planned on getting done.

Saturday - Fall decorations! I took down all my patriotic stuff last week and had gotten a small start on fall. And then finished it today! favorite season of the year! In between putting up leaves, wagons and pumpkins, I was also trying to help Jena recover her phone that died. But the decorations are up and at least now Jena has her old phone working so she's not totally without one.


  1. What a busy, productive week you have had! I hope little Scamper will not try to make mincemeat of your decorations. I'm so glad you are able to keep in touch with your sisters, and I am delighted to hear that your Latte Quilt class is doing so well, despite the slow economy. I feel just as you do about the dentist. I hope you have a wonderful and productive week. Can you believe that Autumn is here? October is just around the corner!

  2. By the way, Serena, happy National Sewing Month! You of all people should be celebrating!

  3. How did you know I had just been to your blog last night? ;)

    I SO feel your dentist pain. :P I think I hate being numb almost as much as actually going to the dentist. lol Have you ever heard of Zellies? You might want to look into them ( and We've been doing her "system" for about 7months now and are so impressed. It's kind of expensive, but where it'd only be one (or two) of you doing it, it wouldn't be too bad...especially if it means skipping out on Dental visits, right? :)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog again! :)



I'd love to hear your thoughts! :)
