Most of the times, we tend to operate by auto mode, not knowing why we do something or say something. Doing things by habit. Perhaps, we need to learn to start looking at the things around us. Notice the change in the season. Feel the change in the air. Live the moment. Before the leaves are all gone.
Recently I have been neglecting my dear dollies…think they are beginning to get upset with me. But I have my reasons.
We started some exercise routine. Twice a week, brisk walking or slow jogging and rest of the week after dinner walk with our old dog.
Having been living a sedentary life for so long, getting the body to exercise is a challenge. But the aching pain in my back (old injury + long hours of sitting) and seeing my old dog struggling to stand up are enough to motivate me. Hopefully, this motivation will last.
Meanwhile, this is an old photo of my two grumpy looking but handsome boys.
In many ways, this loose shirt is an experiment. This soft and thin white cloth is called “Bahama Voile”. It wrinkles but I quite like the effect. Then I varied the box shirt pattern. And finally, because some of the blue sewing markings wouldn’t wash off, I dyed the shirt with black tea. The dye sort of covers the blue markings but it makes the shirt looks old and worn. Perhaps my dyeing wasn’t done correctly. That’s another try for another day.
