Been a little distracted, but the work continues. What is gratifying is that even if I only manage half a chapter, the feeling of accomplishment is overwhelming, so I must be on the right track. When not writing, I’ve been gearing a quilt to completion, having sewn the halves together, fashioned a backing, basting it, and am now in the process of hand-quilting that sandwich. It’s soothing to do either at the close of day, or early in the morning, as I did this morning, my husband having taken the day off to celebrate his birthday. While he snoozed, I sewed, the time change tricky for me to acclimate to. Not that I sleep in much anyways, but….
We went to breakfast, then it was time for me to attempt to wrap up a chapter begun yesterday, interrupted by various taskings. And quite a bit of thought directed at the church shooting in Texas. I don’t say much about current events on this blog, yet what happened in Sutherland is hard to write about, for there are many levels of sorrow within my heart. My prayers go out to the injured and to the families and friends of those killed.
