Catching up with the things I’ve put off all term. I hand sewed Vince’s merit badges on his scout sash. I find hand sewing a form of meditation. If I had more time, I’d pick up needlework as a hobby. I also spent some time looking for a marriage equality merit badge online – no luck. Vince is going to advance in rank tonight, to Tenderfoot. Which means that I’ll have to rip off a patch I just sewed on to put the new one on. That’s how much I like sewing patches onto cloth.
Jeremy bought a new back up hard drive for the household IT infrastructure. He was a sweetie and bought the DeskStar which is the descendant of the hard drive I used to make at IBM in the late 90s. Ah, the fond memories of a well-running manufacturing line. I hope to someday make something again.
