I haven’t written in over a week! My, oh, my. Time just goes by. I have this time every single morning, where I am walking back from the garden, headed down the trail, the sun is shining on the left side of my face, I am always wearing the same outfit, and so far—2 1/2 years since I stopped working—I am always soooo grateful for this wonderful luxury of walking in the woods in the morning with a day of sewing, chores, exercise, seeing my grandson, meetings, ahead of me. Surely my life is filled with goodness and mercy. 

I need to buy a new machine. And now that I have made that decision, I know what I want. I just need to tell Frank that I need to spend this money. Maybe we will have a moment to talk tonight.
