Then I worked at loading my #2 daughter-in-law's chickens ( I had baby sat them all Winter for her -and received wonderful eggs from them in return) on DH's truck to take them home to her. I learned that I do get attached to any animal - no matter who they belong to. It really hurt to see them going down the driveway & knowing those beautiful eggs would not be there in the morning?
But, I reminded myself that DH wants to get chicks like hers(they are red sex-links). All of my life I have loved the little bantams with all of their colors & personality-) Until this past Winter when my bantams quiet laying around Thanksgiving & they are just starting to lay a few now. With the price of groceries as high as they are -the red ones laid every single day all Winter long -with no extra care.It was awesome! So, live & learn! LOL
Once in the house I wanted to do dishes, laundry , steam the floors and more -But- I decided that since DH was gone the house could just wait because it is VERY SELDOM that the house is quiet because DH is really married to the television.
I needed the quiet to read the manual that came with Mr. Janome. I knew if I just left it sitting that I would slowly lose my courage to try to see what it would do-because I would not want to be disappointed once again since so many had said it was my fault - I was doing things wrong. SO - that was why I headed to the sewing room
It was nice & quiet & my brain was actually trying to behave itself & let the knowledge contained in the manual soak in. I took it step by step. I had wanted a toaster cover for Forever & decided that would be my first project.
This particular cover was a gift from an Oregon friend who is a bus driver & a wonderful gal. It amazed me AFTER (you know how that hind-sight thing is) --- that it is actually a larger size cover & we actually have the larger size toaster! Talk about things starting to look better????
It actually started to " PURR' right along just singing its song as I was holding my breath! I just could not believe it- it was working !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Life is good -counting my blessings!
happy stitches to you
