I made that list of all the sewing machines. Now I am entering the information into a spread sheet. It won't surprise any of you when I confess that I have forgotten where and when I acquired some machines. The nice thing about spreadsheets is that you can manipulate the data. I have 84 machines entered. I have about 20 to go. (I found about three or four more machines that I had not counted on the original list. Including the 201K that is in North Carolina).
For fun I added up the grand total of what I had paid.
"Three Thousand three hundred fifty four dollars and fifty cents. And that includes the 2200 dollar Viking."
Why he thought that was so funny, I will never know.
"It doesn't include the Baily. I don't remember what I paid for that."
"I think it was a couple of thousand, honey."
"Oh, really? Maybe not so much."
Somewhere I have the receipt for it. I meant to look today but got distracted with data entry, vacuuming and packing a 201-2 for shipping.
We are heading back to NC on Friday. Our dog sitter is one of the loveliest people in the world and she would not give a hoot if the house was a mess. But I did have to make a meager effort at tidying up.
"Are there rules about wiping dog paws when they come in from outside?" she asked when Steven called her to confirm.
We have no rules about dog paws. We accept that dogs will track in stuff and poodle dogs track in more stuff when their paws are ungroomed. Like now. I did grind their nails down. I just haven't had time to groom any dogs. Maybe in April.
