Sometimes ... the stars are just in alignment ... and things happen that have nothing much to do with anything we've done ... they are just meant to be.
For example ... when this little girl adopted us ... it wasn't expected ... there were no plans! I've learned in my life to accept things outside my control ... the hardships and the blessings! This furball ... Nissa ... definitely falls in the "blessing" category! Something else ... another blessing ... also new to DillyDallydom arrived a few days after ... and recently I discovered I have neglected to introduce it here on the blog! Yikes! I guess having a puppy in the house has absorbed what
braincells energy I have available! ;-)
Here's how the stars fell into alignment ... it was the last evening of the DillyDally Trail ... as we were traveling to the Columbia River Gorge for our dinner cruise, a Southeast MN QBee shared details with us about her family cabin on the Mississippi River. Like our cabin here in Alaska, her's doesn't have electricity either. She shared how she uses an antique hand crank sewing machine to piece while there! Brilliant! That is exactly what I need here on the Eyak River! I shared my thoughts and the Metro QBee said, "I have a friend who has one for sale!" She immediately called to make sure it was still available ... and I bought myself an antique hand crank while driving down the freeway! Yep ... it was meant to be ... another blessing!
Yep ... the stars are in alignment ... this machine was meant to be in my life ... I am grateful ... I feel blessed. I look forward to the many adventures this Flora and I will have!

Do what you love. Do dillydally!
