A Lot Of Reading To Do

All I wanted to do was work on my Lucy’s dresses.  When I pulled the instructions for this..

All there was to instruct me was 1 sheet to tell me how to plug it in to the machine and the outlet.

What kind of S*** is this?  What to do!  Why get on the computer and request the  manual.  Yeah just 58 sheets (counting what is not in english).

I will soon be 83 years old and I’m going to learn how to sew with this machine.

So I put the material for the dresses back in the bedroom.  I’ll put this away for now.

I mean why would I need the thread if I don’t know how to put it on the machine

Right now I’m taking a deep breath and thinking why did I give my old Kenmore away.  Why because I have a brand new Singer to use now!   What makes me think I have the ability to learn so much when I should really pick up my novel and read a few more chapters.  No man I have to keep pushing my envelope instead of taking the easy way out.

I just looked outside and it is starting to snow lightly again.  It better not cover my nice shoveled walkways.

Right now I have to put all the stuff on the kitchen table away except the manual  to start reading it after I feed Brandy.

Oh such is life when you can’t sit and do nothing.

Stay warm, keep smiling, and even laugh out loud because it makes you breathe deeper.

  1. Ah, the ‘fun’ – glad YOU like to sew with a sewing machine (NOT my thing, for sure!). Hope you get it ‘under your belt’ and conquer that thing! YOU CAN DO THIS!!! Hugs!

  2. You did do a lot of shovelling the other day my goodness you were brave!

    I go the odd walk round our village and find this enough lately. Watch the kids go home from school as did this afternoon, some sunshine for while.
