We work hard. We play hard. Last weekend was one that sort of wraps us up as a couple, a family.
He likes cars, motorcycles, speed, & sports. I like art, sewing, painting and decorating.
Some weekends we both get to full-fill our dreams in some measure. I think because my dreams are less expensive and “average hobbies”, I get personal satisfaction more often.. He says it’s worth the wait each year to race along curvy roads at over 100 mph. He said/She said.
Last weekend, my hubby went to Nebraska for his second time racing in the SORC with my dad.
This meant I was in charge of meals and endless loads of laundry – but it also meant I could sew to my heart’s content at ridiculous hours. It meant my son and I were bonding without our mutual caregiver.
I cooked a pan of enchiladas and forced son to eat leftovers or make sandwiches until his father (family chef) returned. As treat- I brought home cake mix for boy to bake, frost and eat all weekend long.
Everyone is happy – some dreams are cheaper (chocolate cake mix).
- We can discuss how awful and uneven the edges of my strip quilt are in a future post. I have to figure out how to handle it! I anticipate lots of trimming.
- My son also had a good chuckle about my seams not matching – anywhere. He is studying to be an engineer and loves math.
Hope you have an amazing hobby you enjoy!
