i spent the evening helping a friend pack. after having three good friends (and myself) move five times between all of us in this last year i have to say i am a little a burned out on moving. but it's also one of those things that you just assured that the favor will be repaid in the future, or that you owe a favor anyway; it's the the nature of friendships that you lose track of those things. but i gotta say, after this i hope no one i know moves for a long, long time!

i got fabric today for a new sewing project. after finishing my quilt i found myself pacing around my apartment, bored with nothing to do for the past week or so. and i couldn't understand why i was so restless. i concluded that i really enjoyed sewing my quilt and that i needed a new sewing project. so now i've got one! huzzah...

peace in the valley!

finally, it has happened! sammy and edgar are both sitting with me on the sofa! less that a foot from one another, no growling, no barking, no hissing, no yowling. there is in fact purring going on right at this moment! i thought that it would never happen, i thought that the cats were doomed to a lifetime in the bedroom whenever edgar is up and about. not true! hooray!

j and i went to a wedding in genoa nebraska this weekend. it was a lovely time, it started off a little questionable...the reception was at the senior center, which was...unique to say the least. on the way back we decided that the highway was uninteresting, so we drove home only on gravel roads. i guess i didn't realize that could be done, but j has an uncanny sense of direction. there were several abandoned farm buildings along the way, but most had no trespassing signs. we did stop at one small building that was really cool. it was full of stuff, old furniture, a wringer washer, tables, some kind of old halters. there was an old lard bucket from cudyhay's which is where my grandma used to work. it is so interesting that people just up and leave all that stuff.
