On my life's list I wrote to repair rather than replace... So today I put a button on a pair of Jay's shorts, stitched a pair of my pants that had a hole in them, fixed a hole in a pillow and replaced all the buttons on my cardigan because it lost one and I couldn't find one to match.....it looks much cooler now anyways with it's small metal buttons with filigree on them, much more.......me. As for beginning my book, I have 100 times in my head, but haven't had any distraction free time to actually sit and do it. I do have my character journal started.......I will get there, my first chapter has played out over and over in my head. Soon it will be on paper.
