So I've been staying close to home.
I did take my mother to the Salvation Army this morning, and I didn't feel my usual resentment at being there.
Thinking of the seriousness of the situation at hand, I guess. Praying, for real. Feeling very emotional. I found myself being ok with being there. It was somehow soothing, even to a skeptic like me.
I hemmed these 8 dish towels that I took off the loom the other day, and rethreaded the loom for more.
I wove one towel, and then took Roy boy for a walk.
Walking and weaving, they both make me feel better.
I count on it.
