RANT to losing my pile of clothes that need mending. Now that my sewing machine is up and running for sewing masks, I have no excuse not to tackle the pile of mending that has been accumulating for several years. Now if I can only remember where I stashed it after moving things around to create space to work from home.

RAVE to the woman who found my cellphone (with driver’s license and credit card!) on a bench in Madrona Park and drove it to my house to return it before I even realized it had slipped out of my coat pocket! I was so surprised and shocked, I’m afraid I didn’t adequately thank her. Her kind action put a great spin on the rest of the week.

RANT to shoppers at Fred Meyer in Burien and Saar’s in White Center. No social distancing and no masks or gloves worn by them or employees.
