Tuesday Time Out
Today has been a stressful day. My kitty cat is still very sick and probably needs to return to the vet. That leads to financial stress because what are you going to do? Not take the cat? Of course not, she has to go, so I find the money from somewhere.
Next, my mother (who turns 87 this month) got sick from overexerting herself. (She’s better now, though.) Then, my daughter got the results from her abdominal CT scan. We are still waiting for the doctor to interpret the results, but we think we have translated the medical speak to mean that there is a kink in her small intestine.
Stressful, yes, but the day is over. I’m grateful for that.
However, I do have to share something that delights me. My paid profession is as an editor and I belong to a copy editing list. There’s an off-topic branch of the list where we talk about anything – not copy editing related. Oddly enough, a long thread developed on the topic of sewing, and there were so many that contributed their experiences of sewing, frustrations with ready-to-wear clothing, where to find fabric online, and frustrations with fitting – the list goes on, you know it all to well.
My point is that it was extremely delightful to merge my love for words with sewing. Oh, sort of like what I do here? You bet.
No work on the pink top tonight. Too late, too tired.
Stay tuned. Happy sewing.
