Mr. Lina filmed another Post-Lifer film, "Oh Come All Ye Zombies". This is going direct to YouTube, hopefully prior to this Christmas. I did a few things:
- Shirt for a female zombie
- Appliqued humping reindeer onto a sweater for Humphrey (Mr. Lina)
- Yarmulke for Humphrey
- Food for cast & crew for the Sat/Sun
The problem with being so busy is that I didn't get pictures of the actress nor Humphrey. I did ask someone (with a much better camera) to take pictures for me, but it hasn't been shared around yet. So I'll blog more about that when those arrive.
So I WAS sewing, but since the film shoot, I've just been exhausted.
From more personal perspective...
I'm doing okay. No sadness, no tears, no wonky emotions, no lamenting about lost opportunities. I am slowly adjusting to the need to move, the more I say it I suppose the easier it gets, but there are still people I hedge around discussing moving with. I just don't feel quite that comfortable yet. We are looking online at houses for sale and saying a few "what if's". Mr. Lina has priced out a storage unit and we'll be setting that up in the next week so we have a place (other than the fairly full garage) to move things that we don't need in the house.
I've also been emailing a coworker who adopted his daughter through a foster to adopt program in another province. It's been really good to hear about his experience and how quickly it went for him once they got the ball rolling. He's also been encouraging not to rush. He saw couples that went through infertility treatment prior to adoption who were clearly still struggling with closing that door. It's good advice from someone who has been there.
For those of you who like cooking with a slow cooker and like pork, I highly recommend this recipe. I roughly followed the recipe, probably less salt and more cayenne, ground cumin instead of seeds... but I didn't significantly change anything except the orange juice. We don't drink a lot of juice so I don't buy a lot of juice. I do buy tetra packs of "fun" juices for punches when it's on sale so oddly enough I had mango juice but not orange. Feedback from the 20 odd people I fed was very positive. People were going back for thirds.
