my dryer is working....
This fact can only make sense to those of you who work with cotton textiles and found fiber stitched design elements to see if they can survive my further embellishments and alterations. The household laundry has been multiplying in multiple piles in my small laundry room. The repairman worked for a short amount of time and gave us the bill. The roof man also showed up to see how much damage we experienced during a recent summer storm and the front porch needs some adjusting and uplifting. When the bills run in they flow like water. I love our cabin in the woods and just having the simple pleasures of doing my laundry at home is a fact I really appreciate and never lose sight of their importance. We have to wait until next week to have the roof analyzed and they can make an accurate estimate.
Tonight I went to boot camp for volunteering at our local theater; the Midland has been around since 1928 and is a true center for our community to come together for the finest of the visual and musical arts. I love those green velvet seats! We were given an executive tour of all three floors, learned the seating arrangement both orchestra and balcony and visited the stars dressing rooms and the private green room which is actually a black room. We saw a historical video of the 8 1/2 billion dollars in renewal! What a joy to have this opportunity to share the arts in such a regal and warm inviting theater! We will see the Smothers Brothers in October which for sure I will not be working but out in the green velvet seats enjoying the bad boys!
When I got home I found myself exhausted so this will have to be a short night. I am amazed at all the simple gifts that keep me centered and focused. My dryer is working !!! Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
