Friends, the older I get the faster time passes, and there's more to be done lately than one can possibly do! It's like fighting fire with gasoline. :)
Take the last few days. There's not been one minute to get on the computer since my last post.
Well, I could have skipped watching "The Virginian" last night. But, seriously...
about the time I get started on the housework, and I do start on something the minute my feet hit the floor every morning, Poppy says, you want to work on the path today...well yes!!
So we work outside, then come dragging in the house, thinking it's probably lunch time and see that it's actually 1:00 pm...we eat a little lunch and Poppy settles down in his chair to rest and watch a little "Gunsmoke", as he puts it...
While I, with two cats weaving in and out my feet, stand and stare at the dishes in the sink, the two piles of dirty laundry, carpet that needs vacuuming, litter box to clean, kitchen floor to sweep and mop, oh, and I had planned to clean the bathrooms, and dust these filthy ceiling fans that are beginning to look like the swings at the state fair!
and speaking of my last post...I truly meant to reply to your nice comments, then go on and read your latest posts...what the heck goes with my time anyhow??
so this post is thanking you and replying to a couple of things...
especially thanking you all for telling me to keep mama's little Kenmore sewing machine. How could I have even thought of putting it on Craigslist! Just got to find a little spot to squeeze it back into the teeny tiny sewing room.
AND! the sweet names suggested for my baby. I love them all, but just had to pick the name "Hattie" suggested by Jo.
Aw, how bout "Hattie Mae" nah, just "Hattie"
and Connie, couldn't you simply spend the day looking at fabric? I've never bought fabric from Hancock's, but have ordered fabric on line from Marshall's Dry Goods. I'll check out Hancock's.
Rian, your comment made me think about driving mama's plain little 1998 Toyota Corolla for years. That little car didn't have so much as a clock. Mama used to say, "oh, that little car didn't come with anything but a set of seats". Then we sold the car and bought a new Nissan Rogue. Felt like sitting in the cockpit of an aircraft. But I've adjusted and love it, and feel sure I will love the new Singer too. In fact, I finished an apron just last night using the new machine.
It was interesting to read what brand of sewing machine you all use. The little Kenmore was mentioned several times. Thank you for your comments, and your friendship.
Have I talked your ears off. Wondering if I should actually publish this?? You will come back, won't you?
