I’ve decided to group all mending and schedule it for mondays. I’ve always liked organizing my work for production and efficiency and this works for me.
interestingly the mending project has elicited work from far as opposed to near. even though this involves transportation costs I think even that is quite outweighed by the other environmental costs incurred by throwing out and buying new. so mondays it is- a time for mending-likely later in the quiet of the day under the shade of the old avocado tree out back. it’s due to be taken out in the not too distant future- it’s over 70 years old and withering away at this point.
I also like the notes I’ve received from those who were reminded that mending is possible-even preferable- and have taken up needles in hand to mend themselves.
it’s warming up here today and how quickly the wash dries on the line!
