Can you see a little calf in this thicket? Look closely now..... take your time. Focus!
How about from this angle..... really concentrate.
Of course you can't... no one can.
He's totally black hiding in there bawling his little heart out for his mommy. How did he get in there, you asked?
How would I know but he's stuck and hung up in some vines. Now I ask you, who's going in there after the little critter?????
Sigh... alas, it's me. His mommy is on the other side of the thicket safely away from me, mooing for him.
Did I mention that I don't like anything bigger than me, smaller than me, faster than me.... need I go on.
Mind you, we have open fields, meadows and flat land to roam around in but did the little critter wonder into that area.....
Did I mention I don't like cows!
For years I've been keeping up with my sewing and embroidery time keeping a record on a calendar by my machines. It helps me get motivated from month to month or to slow down when I'm in a frenzy. I have a PFAFF which I sew on and a Janome that I'm truly in love with. The PFAFF is a great machine and handles like a dream and the Janome is truly amazing but it weighs a ton. You would think I get a lot done by sewing on one while the other stitches out a design. Sometimes that works but mostly I sit and watch the Janome do it's thing. Does anyone else have that affliction?
