First: this week's chuckle: You will laugh at my utter delight in sewing two buttons onto an old flannel shirt. But it was not the sewing on of the buttons but the finding of buttons from having sorted through both BR and back/back shed at Beaver. Then re-finding the bottle of buttons, sorting them by size AND, rather than just putting them back into the bottle, realizing I had a plastic container with cubicles just for this need! All of which also entailed sorting of next sewing tasks, and of fabrics and getting everything re-homed much better than before, leaving the sewing room in much better shape! Then I mended the pocket of a pair of slacks - chewed by mouse to get whatever was in there! Months these have been waiting - for the right configuration of the planets/weather/ mindset/ physical energy... All to remind me that I still do not have the extra bobbins for the machine...

Lawn is getting mowed bit by bit. Today - rain - no mow. Cool weather. R notes that he sneezes when he goes down to the book room/basement. I say "mold". He says "not". ...
