Yes, I do miss the Singer I learned on as a kid.

I got my Grandma's Singer when she died. Had to take it even though I dont sew much. My oldest daughter taught herself how to sew on it and got some good use out of it. When my marriage broke up and we sold the house, I gave the machine to miss pixi and she loves it soooo much. It's a Singer 401A from the 50s. Totally rocks. She's gadgety, so she's been servicing it herself.

I'm in pain. Not sure what i did to myself, but I've had sharp, needle like pains in my left knee randomly ever since I came back from my weekend in the woods. I think I hurt it dropping to a knee on a rock/stick or something.

I LOVE old sewing machines. They have all metal guts and thus can handle light leather sewing. Anything that lets me not have to sew by hand is a blessing.

Hope you feel better soon!

I love old anything. My new obsession is metal electric fans. I've got a small collection. I LOVE how repairable old appliances are!

I'm flying down to Florida today for 10 days to see my sister who is taking a nice vacation from her job so she doenst waste her vacation days. We will have lots of fun, but I will sure miss miss pixi and my new relationship friends back at home.

I am a lucky girl.

I actually have 3 sewing machines, the Singer which I bought last year, the crappy White my grandma bought me 18 years ago, and my grandmother's PFAFF 332 that my mom gave me when Gram passed away almost 3 years ago. The PFAFF is from the 50's as well, and has 2 dozen attachments I've never seen before that look like medieval torture devices, I have thus far only been able to find a book in .jpeg format, but the local singer shop is willing to show me how it works.

As for me today, I woke up with terrible back pain and it is laundry day so I am considering a long soak in a hot tub.

That sounds wunnerful! I love taking baths (especially with bubbles!), but my bathroom is small and my tub is short and not very deep. Whenever I get in it, my legs are sticking out of the water and I stare into the litter box. Not exactly the effect I'm going for.


I am feeling pretty good today. Got some prepping done for my little tag sale. Inquired about some collectibles I want to get rid of, waiting to hear back from the experts. Sorted through lots of papers and have a pile to shred. Put some ads up online for furniture I'm selling and got some responses. Now it's time to just show me the money.

Good to be home with my wife and my boy.

I'm a total atheist, but my wife had some church friends over, and I had an intense discussion with one of them ! I asked him if I could love 2 women, and his reaction was as expected - he we do all he could to get my wife to leave me if I tried that ! - oh it was sooo predictable I found it funny!

oh and then I asked "is it ok for people to have sex before married?"
him: "no"
Me: "because your book says so"
Him, without hesitation "yes!"


...and then the topic moved to same sex couples, and I started gathering more judgemental statements, when we were interrupted. it could have been interesting!

It feels really odd to be able to set my own schedule again. I can take a day off to get my stair fixed w/o anyone caring.

Wow bassman, you were really fundie baiting. How did your wife feel about you bringing up fornication with her friend like that?

I'm in Florida. Bit more rain than one would want, but warm and beautiful with lots of sunny breaks. Driving down to Miami Beach today, for Art Deco sightseeing! Yay, I LOVE Art Deco.
