I tried to thread a needle to sew a patch on my sweatshirt jacket. I couldn’t thread the needle–I couldn’t see the eye. I’m getting old. I couldn’t find a threading thing.
I had some safety pins, so I used those. I told Ming the fantasy of one of the pins being a diaper pin with light blue plastic and a darker blue outline of a cartoon whale. The whale would be spouting water out of its blowhole and have a little smile.
Today I was in the courtyard. I ate yogurt then walked Ming to the minivan as he left. Rainbow came to say hi. I talked to her about how cute she is. Then I pet her a little bit.
I saw a pinecone on the ground. I hadn’t seen one in a while. Looked like it had fallen from the courtyard conifer. It’s windy and cool.
