It’s my 40th birthday today. Good. Now that’s out of the way.
I’m buried in work this week. But I’m OK with that, too. I like editing grants, even though they typically require twice as much work in half as much time, because if they bring outside money into the institution, how can it be a bad thing?
My health is good. My family is around me and loving. My 16-year-old diabetic cat is still alive. I remain giddily happy about the house we bought last year. I’m looking forward to eating dinner tonight and having a slice of pie.
And, for those know their vintage sewing machines, in the past month-ish, I am suddenly the happy owner of a Bernina 830 Record (paperwork indicates the first owner purchased it in 1977), a Bernina 1030 (circa late 1980s?), and a Husqvarna 6460 (paperwork indicates first purchase in 1979).
This is gonna be an awesome year.
