making it better

When so much has been overwhelming and difficult, I am happy to find there is a lot lately that just has made each day a little better.

  • watching my little baby become a little boy, so suddenly


  • seeing that same little boy enjoy being 1 so much and partying until he dropped


  • the sweet clothing we scored at Goodwill, including two Hawaiian shirts, one for each boy

  • venting at knit night and finding I am not alone in my troubles, plus getting at least three rows knit (a first in over a month)


  • my new birthday sewing machines and table ~~ These make me giddy! I realize one will have to be sold, but to get the table, I had to buy both machines at the antique shop. I had to, I’m telling you. 🙂 Plus, the boys were so patient while I inspected each machine, loaded them, and paid for them. I was so proud. It made the whole day just go wonderfully after that.

    Based on the manuals dates, my guess is 1954 for the top one, 1933 for the bottom one. The 50s one is in better shape and likely the one I will keep. We spent $40 tonight to get the parts to fix the older one and to fix the knee operation cords (this feature makes me giddy!!). With all the accessories and condition, I think (I THINK) I got a decent deal.
