A New Day in the USA

As I sat today watching our new President being sworn in I felt such pride in our Nation.  It made me realize it isn’t the people in Washington who make us a Great People.  It is us, you and me.  It doesn’t matter who is our President, the traditions, ceremonies, and happenings of the day made me feel very proud to be a US citizen.

Today, I got a feel for what Hubby feels like following me thru the fabric stores.  We went to the Wood working Exo this afternoon.  HUGE, lots of man toys, saws of all kinds, etc.  Watching him wander around looking, stopping to listen to a demo, touching the wood, and so on.  I am thinking of the quilt I need to sandwich and what I could be doing.Then I had to laugh and started to act interested.  Is this what he thinks as I go to Quilt Shows, Sewing Expos, and fabric stores?  I have more respect for him for indulging me in my fabrics.

Such a day for deep thoughts.  Now I am going to do some mindless cleaning.  Have a great night.

  1. That was a good comparison. My husband and I came to an understanding in the last years of his life. If I bought a sewing machine, he could buy a gun. Probably why I have a lot fewer sewing machines, though we both had plenty of our hobby essentials. =) I’m SO glad to hear someone say something positive about Friday. I believe the voting process is so precious, as is freedom of speech, but I tend to see the bright side of all things. Thank you for seeing it, too.
