Major upset in my plans yesterday. The little sewing machine I keep in Santa Fe stopped working. It's an inexpensive Brother's machine that I bought four years ago just to have up here. I've made window treatments, pillows, bedskirts and tote bags with the machine, using mostly light-weight cotton and linen fabrics. I'm hoping I can take the sewing machine to a repair shop tomorrow and have it fixed for less than the cost to buy it. Any guesses on how long it will take to repair a sewing machine in the Land of Manana?
Today I'm creating pesto. At the farmer's market yesterday I bought the fresh ingredients I need, plus some heirloom tomatoes to serve with it. Mr. B doesn't eat uncooked tomatoes, so the heirloom tomatoes are going to be such a treat for me! But first, this afternoon I'm going to walk around the Contemporary Spanish Market in the 85-degree sunshine. Then tonight, I'll take a bottle of crisp white wine, the tomatoes and pesto, and some good bread outside to enjoy in the COOL Santa Fe evening. Take that, Dr. Mc!
