Instead of anything profound, today, I will tell you this:
Today, I fixed a vacuum cleaner. It had slipped a belt on the beater brush. I fixed it, and as I turned the vacuum back on and began to actually clean the floor, instead of just pushing the vacuum back and forth, wondering why nothing was happening, I thought, "Well, at least I have something to blog about today!" And then I considered starting a list of things to blog about.
Want a better story? In Minnesota? Come to the Sunnyside Gardens greenhouse this Sunday. The Linden Hills Farmers Market is carrying on with delicious smells and tastes, and I'll be spinning yarns at noon. I may actually spin something, because there is a knitting theme this week. Tomorrow, I'll tell you about a new and fantastic storytelling tool I'm carrying around in my purse these days.
But for today, I leave you with this nice image of a vacuum.
