Colors by themselves are excellent subjects for photographs. As you say, they jump up to you declaring their presence.
My wife is an excellent mender. When we throw away old clothes is because they are really in bad shape. Being a retiree in this country, means that you have to make every single penny count. It’s the only way you will be able to pay your bills at the end of the month.
Hope you have a nice day in the lone star state of Texas.
Nena is like Aura, always sewing something. We are a dark ages family, mom stayed home raising the kids, dad went to work everyday.
Unlike the dark ages family, we have a collection of sewing machines, presently about 8? The number varies up to a dozen or so but never less than 4. Almost all are 2nd hand and run perfectly. That’s my part.
Nena never looks more peaceful than when doing sewing. Almost Zen-like.
I could not begin to total the amount of money Nena has saved through the years with her sewing. She learned sewing in primaria, (during the dark ages!haha).

We are part of almost extinct generation who doesn’t believe that everything is disposable. We like to use our stuff until it really is useless. It reminds me of the families of the Middle Ages when the families were selt suffiient
Most of my socks have been mended by the sillful hands of my wife Aura. I love technology, but I’m also a tradicionalist, if you know what I mean.
I do know exactly what you mean, Omar. One of the things the USA has lost is self-sufficiency. As for technology, that just means I can buy better tools to fix stuff.
Think the only new stuff we have bought in years is tools? Everything else is 2nd hand and I fix it. Just put a new ice maker in our old refrigerator last week. $40 versus $500 for a new fridge or $150 for the repairman. The decision was easy.
