That wind-knocking-out-of-you shock when you’re lying in bed barely awake and your 15 pound cat leaps down onto your back from the window above. Ooof! Felt like a ton of bricks.

Waiting in the car for Marc to do his banking. We went out to the grocery store because neither of us had any food for lunch.

What do y’all think that date says?

If it’s from D.A. Stadlmann, it must be older than 1744. I see 1726.

Well, exactly. We’ve been trying to determine whether it is genuine. At first Marc though it said 1786, which would make it a definite fake, but now he thinks and I agree that it looks more like 1726. It’s VERY similar to an allegedly genuine label in his book of labels, and the fiddle looks very similar to a picture of an allegedly genuine one we found online. It’s had a neck graft, and is certainly old, and a nice instrument.

Every time I roll over in my sleep and lie on the side with my helix it gets upset. :c It’s really horrible and painful, I hope yours is alright!

Yeah, the industrial gets that way when i sleep on it sometimes too. It’s getting better and better about tolerating it though! Lately it’s been really good, and so far it seems all right after its run-in today.

Tomorrow I will reply to messages here and to my sister’s camera questions on fb and maybe (should definitely) do my taxes.

Okay so apparently you really need an iron to make a quilt properly. I slapped a thing together out of old t-shirts and a top sheet as backing, and without an iron (and probably because one side is stretchy and the other isn’t), it came out pretty wonky and lumpy. But hey, it’s still one more blanket than we had before, and I got rid of those old t-shirts I didn’t wear anymore. And got some practice and learned that I need to get an iron before I try again.
