Today I fixed the hole in the right pocket of Andrew's dress coat . Now his keys won't fall into the lining!
On another snowy cold morning, I trudge out into the elements. Layer upon layer, upon layer, I pile on clothes in defense--my fabulous two-toned purple leather gloves last. I love these. A gift from my mother-in-law who has exquisite taste , they have a knit cashmere lining and magic things in the fingers so that I can still use my phone. Every day for the past month, I have put them on and said to myself, "I should fix the hole in the lining tonight. I love these gloves." And then I don't.
Well, TODAY is the day! This fix-it project requires darning, which is basically rebuilding a knit piece. I think of it as picking up lost stitches and a bit of weaving when I'm lazy. With the help of this tutorial, here's the finished product:
Following the advice of a career counselor and a neighbor in higher education administration, I made a version of my my resume/CV that is more like a "functional" resume than a chronological style to highlight my experience in higher ed. outside of teaching. With big new things on the horizon, I've been considering a career shift towards an administrative position in student services, continuing studies, teaching and learning, or curriculum development that would still allow time for teaching. Wish me luck!
Fixing misskoco.com has been on my to-do list for YEARS. Since moving back to Philly I've lost interest in blogging my daily adventures, but I still want to hold on to all the memories in some kind of an archive tucked away in a corner of the internet. From time to time I like to look back at all of the things I did, thought about, and found to be hilarious in some previous life of mine.
For Day 1 of my Fix-it Feb., I accomplished the following:
1. fixed the broken images on the blog
2. moved the misskoco.com blog to a new home and now can be found at: miss koco and the iladelph
3. set up misskoco.com with weebly and (successfully) changed the DNS records with bluehost
4. gave misskoco.com a facelift
Day one: DONE!
A few years ago I participated in Thing-A-Day, the 28-day challenge to make something everyday for the month of February. For 2014, I'm committing myself to fixing, mending, healing, and finishing something each day of February.
