Remember when I said my neighbor (the mechanic) was 8.75 months pregnant? Well, I was exactly right. Little Hoseah (7.5 lbs) was born last Friday. He’s a pretty, quiet and happy little boy. Thanks to all of you who sent gifts or dropped off useful items. They appreciated them very much. I provided everyone’s address save Celeste’s. Sorry Celeste.
I hear the east coast is weathering a heavy snowfall. Here, it’s a balmy 55 degrees; it’ll be 60 tomorrow. Can’t say I miss snow but I’m sure many of you enjoy it. I’ve spent the day sewing up last minute gifts, which I doubt will arrive in time but that’s what I get. I had a trial sewing not having the right color thread for the industrial machine so I pulled out my little home sewing machine. It’s a good one, a Pfaff. Long story short, I miss home sewing machines the same way I miss snow. As in not. Someone told me I could use home thread on an industrial and I tried it. Results are mixed. It’ll sometimes work in a pinch.
Without further ado, here’s this weeks entries from the archives. Hope your weekend is grand.
