me: portrait

A lot's been going on....

1. Mrs. Boss had a major heart attack yesterday. She's currently FINE (Praise the Lord for that!) and might get to go home tomorrow. It's been.....weird, but I'm glad she's OK.

2. Snips has another abcess - but this one wasn't "ripe", so the vet told me to give her antibiotics and come back if it's hard when we finish them. :sigh: Fun stuff.....

3. I'm on the 3rd set of motifs for SG's chullo - and I'm halfway done with them! :happy dance: I'm also halfway down the leg of the Waterfall socks.....so many things to knit, so little time!

4. Mom brought Herself one of her old sewing machines - it's a Bernina 830. Made in Switzerland in the early '70's; it looks to be in pristine condition. End of the month, I'll take it to the Sewing Machine Doctor for a tune-up - just to be sure it's all good to go. Herself is moderately excited - she likes the one Granny got her, but she's scared it'll break (it's an all plastic, current Singer model. Nice machine...but honestly? It feels *cheap*, and *I'm* scared to touch it.) The Bernina? Feels rock-solid. She should get many, many years (Lord willing! :wink:) out of it.

I need to get back to Shabbat prep - Shabbat Shalom!
