Mending…and Janusirasana for the Letter J


Today’s letter is a very short one. Also kind of boring, actually. Sorry.

Here goes: the other day Mr. C asked me to mend his jeans.


I knew that my little Janome 2030 wouldn’t have enough jam to sew over the heavy denim seams that the repair required, so I pulled out my antique Singer hand crank machine.


This baby will sew through anything! And in half the time that fussing with the electric variety would have taken! Who would have thought doing the mending could be so much fun?



See me turning the handle? 🙂

And finally, in keeping with the A-Z Blogging Challenge, I present to you the only yoga pose I was able to find that begins with the letter J:


Janu Sirsana (Head-to-Knee Forward Bend)

This is a pose that you see in all types of athletic activities, from runners to dancers. And yogis, of course. 🙂

Support the bent knee with a pillow if needed. Lean forward over the straight leg, any amount.

the Letter P: The Partridge Family still makes my little hippy heart go pitter patter

I was nine years old when the show first aired in 1970 and 13 years old at the final episode in 1974. Talk about the formative years!

Did you know that The Partridge Family show was actually based on the real live Cowsills family, who were one of the most musically gifted American Families to hit the top of the pop charts in the late sixties?

The Cowsills:

Of course every girl in the world was in love with David Cassidy. But I kind of liked Danny Bonaduce. He was only a year older than me. And he played the bass. I like the bass.

Hello, world, hear the song that we’re singin’

C’mon get happy! A whole lot of lovin’ is what we’ll be bringin’ We’ll make you happy!

We had a dream, we’d go travelin’ together,

We’d spread a little lovin’ then we’d keep movin’ on. Somethin’ always happens whenever we’re together We get a happy feelin’ when we’re singing a song.

Trav’lin’ along there’s a song that we’re singin’

C’mon get happy! A whole lot of lovin’ is what we’ll be bringin’ We’ll make you happy! We’ll make you happy! We’ll make you happy!
