I tried to take a picture that shows the snowy conditions.
Our trip was wonderful. I missed my children terribly knowing how much they would enjoy seeing all the arts and crafts. Since the building is riverfront, Mike and I decided we will bring our children up on a nice spring day.
So the reason for the trip? To buy this Singer Featherweight for Ruthie. What a deal!! Normally these machines sell for $400-500 on eBay. We paid $245. I've been watching craigslist.org for a long time and it was worth the wait! The machine is in immaculate condition...not a scratch on it...which is very rare. The case looks brand new and even has the key! Many accessories came with it. To make the transaction perfect, the woman who sold us the machine was just as nice as could be. She is an artist in the Torpedo Factory, which is why we went there to buy the machine.
Was Ruthie happy? You betcha!! She has always wanted a little "kid-size" machine, but the $30 plastic cheapies never last more than a week.
The foot pedal is different. I can't wait to sit down and fiddle with it. What a blessing of a machine! My Dad has been cooking up a storm...and we are the happy recipients! In the past week we've had ham/green beans/potatoes, veggie steak soup, ham and beans soup, and spaghetti. Yummy! Dad says he's bringing chili next. The good thing is that we all love Grandaddy's cooking!
For the past year, my Wahl electric haircutter has been giving me a hard time. Allen hates it...it likes to grab his hair and pull. I oil it regularly but it doesn't help. The blades are dull...but it is too expensive to get them sharpened. So when I was shopping in the Ross store recently, I saw the $29 model on sale for $9.99...so I grabbed it! Tonight I used it and it works like a charm. Now my 1989 Wahl will go to the recycle bin.
Tomorrow will be the first Sunday that we go to church after two weeks of snow cancellations. It will be nice to talk to our friends after we worship our Lord.
Many blessings ~ Kathie
