I love the Internet–I love how you can do searches and find out things, you can see wonders from all over the world and never leave your home. You can learn new things, and broaden your perspective on life.

But there’s a quirk about the Internet that we forget — unless people post current photos of themselves, you haven’t a clue what they actually look like. You can read the words and thoughts that they put out to the world, but oftentimes, their words don’t match the concept you have of their physical presence.

I have mental images of the people I connect with on the Internet, images that don’t actually match their real faces. There’s a disconnect of sorts when I see the person’s face and think of the name I know them by and realize that what they really look like doesn’t match up to my mental image of them. Interesting…

.I did a bit of sewing today but didn’t care for the looks of the stitching so I have taken a seam ripper to it and removed 90% of the stitching. I did a  bit of searching online and discovered that the needle you use and the presser foot you use make a difference in the quality/consistency of the stitches you create. I’ve checked my needles and will do a bit of sample work tomorrow to verify what foot/needle combination I need to use to obtain the best stitch. We shall see…

Be safe, be well, and please be happy. Be sure to tell those you love that you love them.

About tehachap

The easiest way to define myself is as a very happily married woman with two sons and two grandsons. My hobbies include reading, writing, sewing, trains (watching, photographing and running them in G scale), and travel. My husband and I are retired and we spend our winters in Arizona. I used to own a secretarial and desktop publishing business, but closed it when my husband retired in 1999. We have truly enjoyed our retirement years, and have fulfilled one of our primary goals in life and that is to own a home overlooking train tracks so we can watch trains 24/7. We are sincerely blessed in this life.
