Kernals of Corn no.8—Oh, By the Way…

Here it is the last day of August, the last K.o.C (Kernals of Corn) I put up was exactly a month ago.  I created K.o.C as recap kind of post—Or, an “Oh By the way… this or that happened.” Sometimes, I’ll write about things I’ve read, recipes, projects; but lately it’s really, just been, “Oh, by the way…”
We’ve had a month of appointments for the Honey.  He’s met with two new doctors; a specialist and a general practice doctor.  He has insurance now and we’re going private sector for medical now, instead of the V.A.  His meds were changed back in July; and I’ve seen a marked improvement in his over-all energy and well being. 
For me, unless you’ve been under a rock or …where-ever, I’m going to school! I woke up one day and decided I was going to take the TSI (Texas Success Initiative) at the local community college and registered for classes. I have thought about it for a long time; I finally did it. The semester started last week.  Right now… I’m beside myself.
I’ve had a craft/ art bug, this summer.  I still draw something, though not everyday; like I did with the ICADs- 2015.  For school I made a book bag, (messenger style); and this week, I made a cover for my English Book. *edited to say:  I sewed this up from drop cloth material. Very durable, yet soft! I love it.
My thinking on this is to keep it preserved, it is a soft bound book, I would like for it to stay in relatively good shape. I’m not sure if I’ll sell it, like some students do when the semester is over, because it is an excellent resource!
I won some really cute stationary earlier in the year from Lydia’s Post… I kept this book mark and am using it in my English/Comp book.  I like seeing it when I open my book.  I use it as I’m reading to help stay on the line, I probably need my eyes checked again; and the print is kind of small!
Today, I swam after almost 2 weeks of NOT swimming.  I just wanted to get into that water after being outside. It’s still pretty warm here.  I had a stressful morning, came home hung out the laundry and then went for a swim! It felt good to exercise. It felt good to be in the water. I’m going to miss swimming.  I’m thinking after we shut the pool down, I’ll go back to a walking routine.  That’s my plan anyway.
I always have plans, but when and how I get them done is another story!
‘Til next time, be blessed.
And let us not be weary in well doing; for in due season, we shall reap if we faint not. ~ Galatians 6:9

Evolution of a Messenger Bag- part 2

** caution:: while reading this post you may or may NOT be subjected to subliminal imaging resulting in EITHER strong cravings for bananas  OR!  an aversion to GREEN bananas and/or fruit flies. You’ve been warned.
Earlier in the week I showed you my bag I made for school.  It’s a messenger bag.  My pictures were blurry; and I don’t think I gave too many details about it. It is of course recycled materials.
