It's been a busy enough week, but can't say there was anything major going on. Well, I did make a run over to the municipal court in Venus to take care of my ticket. I chose the option of taking a defensive driving course, and the ticket won't go on my record. What's nice about this six hour course is that it can now be taken on the internet. Of the six hours, one is a one hour break, and I can do it at my leisure...15 minutes here, 12 minutes there, etc. I get something like three chances to take the tests. I've finished the first of three sections, and yes, I passed that test. One down, two to go. I'll probably finish that up this weekend. I've got until up in November, but I'd just as soon be done with it.
Since I was at the machine repair shop, I also took in Mom's Singer. It's the one I, as well as my sisters, learned to sew on. Dad always said Mom sewed many a mile on that thing, and he was right. There were 5 kids in our family, and for years she sewed all of the clothes for us girls, and I'm sure plenty of shirts for the boys. Plus all of the mending along the way, and she occasionally sewed for other people as well. When I got it, I decided I wanted to refinish the cabinet and it would be easier without the machine in it. I had to cut the cord to the foot pedal to get it out, so this visit to the repair shop is to get the cord re-attached. Turns out it needs rewired for the electrical plug anyway, and they'll do a service job on it so it will be running. The real trick will be getting it back in the cabinet, I don't know that they can make the foot pedal cord a plug-in. Wish me luck.
This morning it was nice and cool when I got up, so I headed over to the park and walked around the path. I know 1/2 mile isn't a whole lot, but I was proud that I got up and out to do it. Then I headed over to the grocery store to get that chore out of the way. As I was pulling out of the parking lot, Elizabeth called to see if I wanted to meet them at the park. Made me feel good to say I'd already been!
Here's a mommy-daughter picture of Elizabeth and Elise. I thought their matching outfits deserved to be remembered. :)
Have a good week.
