Sitting in a waiting room, one of the clients described taking his grandmother to the movies for her birthday. He had just offered me his seat.
Later, I went to the local coffeeshop to follow up on a recommendation for someone to help me with my bookkeeping. The person with those skills was working there.
At the library, I was offered the opportunity to “buy” a construction vehicle to support the summer reading program.
I joined a friend who is a “member” of the local Friday night quilt “club” to go on a three-shop Quilt Shop Hop this weekend. She drove us through the back roads.
On my way to my weaving class this evening, I will stop at the hardware store to buy a bristle brush and a resale shop to buy an old pot to melt wax to coat my first attempt at making a “hard” cheese.
At the weaving class, I will show my “unsupervised” weaving where I experimented with different weights of weft. Perhaps, I will also get help winding a new warp for my Twill Study Group.
I am now reading my new library book.
Later, I will do a bit of housekeeping.
I have already cooked for myself for half the week, using ingredients from both a local farmer and the local Farmer’s Market.
I appreciate all the support and opportunities in my adopted small town.
I appreciate the courtesies which are extended to people who know each other and people who do not.
The pace of life suits me.
