There’s still plenty of time to enter the Quilting Happiness Giveaway, right HERE… Best of luck!
It’s chilly today. The sun’s out, sure, but the air is crisp. I can feel it through these covers. Maybe I’ll just stay nestled under here for a couple more minutes… Naw, I can’t. It’s a school day and The Boy will be off soon. His belly needs fillin’ and his body needs clothin’. Time to get up.
Brrr, the floor’s cold. Oh, my little feet. You need to be wrapped in somethin’ warm this mornin’, don’t ya? It’s slipper time. Where the blazes are my flying slippers?
Second drawer and to the left. There you are my babies. Let me put you on and everything will be right with the world again.
Wait! What’s this I see? Oh no! Could it be? That’s not a hole, is it? Why, yes it is!!! How in heaven’s name did you get in there, I wonder!
Well, I guess I could be to blame for it. I trudged about in you babies for the better part of two wintery seasons now, eh? Trompin’ across these floors, up the stairs and down again, and of course flyin’ all over creation… I suspect that could account for the wear in you, my sweets.
Let’s fix you up then. That’s right. I’m not finished with you, not by a long shot. There’s plenty of life left in you yet. Let me get The Boy off for the day and then I’ll deal with you straight-away…
Okeedokey now. Let’s just get out our needle and thread, and we’ll fix you up so you’re as good as new… Well, almost. Still… that’s not so bad… Maybe Momma needs a bit more practice, eh?
Never you mind, you’ll keep me airborne for a couple more seasons I wager. Very nice!
