This morning I spent two hours taking apart, cleaning, oiling, and reassembling a sewing machine. A part of our farm we use this one to fabricate and repair items for farm use more than personal use. After completing a three day project it needed to be stripped and maintained. I found one part that needed to be replaced. Performing routines, whether it is on a simple tool or the garden or a hay field or with animals, is a joy to us, tying us to what it means to care.
