It's been a long day and a heart-breaking week -- watching as more of what made Canada's Neighbour (with a 'u') to the South great, disintegrate as the vote to impeach didn't pass, as DT continues his buffoonery and insults, as his smarmy face shows up next to that of an accused child molester and trafficker of whom he disavows any knowledge.
As much of his party refuses to condemn him.
Closer to home, I've been struggling for over 24 hours to clean the quilt I made for my nephew's birthday (July 5).
It was beautifully quilted by my long-armer; I picked it up Friday a.m. and bound it over the weekend.
Then I washed it. And some **##@@$$!! PRE-WASHED red fabric bled into the white print that dominates the sashing and background.
Most of yesterday and today I have worked to try to fix this...with no change. There is one last shot -- when I get to The Shop or to a larger grocery tomorrow to buy 'colour catchers' -- YES, with a 'u', because that's how we roll up here.
I took out part of my frustration by mowing my backyard in the 23 C of the early afternoon, at top speed -- I finished in 40 minutes what usually takes 60. 😮
I've eaten chocolate and had perhaps a drink or two too many. I yelled (alone, in my house) at the Almighty, accusing HIM (it's always a 'him' when I am angry) of ignoring goodness here on earth and sitting back on HIS "cloud", being mightily entertained by HIS puny humans in some HIM-forsaken "reality show", not doing a darned thing about it.
And then there was the piece -- on page 20. Who cares if the Americans can't spell "colour" to save their souls? It's there -- full out -- with the blurb I wrote (misspelling notwithstanding)...
And suddenly...I feel better.
Maybe I really can get up tomorrow and go to work at The Shop.
And go back to the Sewdio on Friday for another stint at the "Wall-to-Bed Project".
Maybe I can keep on keeping on...and let HER take care of DT and DT's ilk...and all the problems they're causing for their country and the rest of human kind.
Just maybe...there's still hope.
