Wow. With coffee, of course. In case you couldn't see them well enough, here's a closer picture.......
Later we made chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn & green beans for dinner. From scratch, of course. Doesn't everyone?
While eating our cupcakes we discussed the meaning of the word ossification and its practical usage.
We often choose a 'word for the day' just because we can.
Maybe we drink too much coffee........Nah.
Now she's listed on Ebay. I already have one in my collection, so I wasn't interested in keeping her. Sold one like her yesterday, too. The model is a 401 and considered by some to be one of Singer's finest machines.
I also have one of these in my collection. Mine sits atop an iron treadle base. I fully intend to get it working one of these days. In my spare time. Well, that's my day today. I'll end with a quote I saw this morning: I intend to live forever. So far, so good.

Here's my day today. Started out, well, with coffee of course. Remember, no water last night? Well, it was back by 6:30am, so coffee on schedule!
Worked out behind the barn today - taking rabbit & goat pics. Have a couple three goat kids for sale, so needed pics.
Milked goats, cleaned a pen, sorted a couple moms & babies, did rabbit chores....that's Ocarina the English Lop child on the right......
The goat girls wondered where we were taking the moms & babies so there was lots of curious stares and a fair amount of hollerin'.
Earlier this week we got a huge load of new-to-us old
through them and working on them. Some will stay in our collection and others will be repaired & find new homes!
Well, am ending the day off by sewing up some primitive coffee-grunged sunflowers. I'll list 'em on Ebay and hopefully make a few dollars to help pay for that big load of sewing machines.....And when I get all caught up, I'll buy some more!!!

I've noticed that people from all walks of life and all ages seem to use a vast variety of electronic gadgets with ease. They walk & text, walk & talk. They carry on conversations while simultaneously sliding their fingers over screens of teeny tiny computer-like gadgets. I can't figure out how to blog. I'm surprised I've gotten this far. Now I need help. Wonder what the dog is doing? She's probably too busy to help me. I'll go ask her and get back to this later.....
