My Black Friday isn’t

No dashing out the door in the dark for me; there’s nothing I want/need badly enough to take my chances. Instead, I’m sitting in my favorite comfy chair drinking coffee with a big purring cat in my lap. This part of Black Friday is a rich cozy c... Read more

A big up: IMUSTLOSEIT1 is feeling a bit better though she’s bone-tired, has no appetite, even her coffee doesn’t appeal. Larry still has no symptoms, thanks be. Things have been worked out with other family on behalf of the son who’s having sur... Read more

I spoke with IMUSTLOSEIT1 last night and was shocked to learn that she has Covid. She’s been careful; who knows where she got it. She went to ER and was sent home with oxygen. Larry thus far is OK. Their internet has been down since last week... Read more

I look at that word Thursday and feel a bit sad. Times are not normal, and many of us won’t celebrate in normal ways next week. We’re making the best of things, but I still feel a bit sad. What I miss most is my mom. She and her boyfriend spen... Read more

Woohoo, my 9 AM appointment is cancelled. I have several hours to do yesterday’s neglected house maintenance (like that term? I got it from another Sparker; sounds better than housework) and make three masks. I’m meeting husband later to check o... Read more

I’ve been working on masks most of the day. I’ve finished three orders and hope to complete the fourth this afternoon. I really don’t like making kids’ masks. They require cutting and sewing more pieces, more assembly, more time on the elastic. ... Read more

The unusual cup and saucer I used yesterday was made in occupied Japan. The face in the bottom of the cup is a geisha. These were made in several poses, some risqué. My mother-in-law probably got it from a brother stationed in Japan. It isn’t h... Read more
