the odd day
We've been having monsoon like rain all day and it was somber inside and out today, but lightened by a visit from Jake, and Colin returned home from being in NY for a week.
I spent the morning focusing on a dreaded editing/rewriting task - you may have heard the writing expression "kill your darlings"? Well, there was figurative blood all over the place this morning, but it was needful.
I did go over and look in the river basket was too distracted to sit with the stitch today. restless. Having lost something. Someone.
I just remembered. The very first birthday gift Jimmy every gave me was a sewing machine. Sear Kenmore Free-Arm. Innovative in its day and a workhorse for over twenty-five years. The man knew what I was all about.
