I worked on my jacket most of yesterday (minus a trip out for more thread and some soup-making), which meant I had lots of time to just…think. Of course I have to think about sewing while I’m doing it, but pinning a seam at this point doesn’t take all my attention, giving me time to come up with thoughts like these:

“Mankind has never really domesticated fish, not like cows or dogs. I wonder if it would work.”

“It makes it easier for Jane Eyre to marry Rochester after she’s come into her inheritance and has money of her own, so she’s not utterly dependent. Pretty forward-thinking for 1847, Charlotte Bronte.”

“I wonder if people buy Labradoodle dogs just for the name ‘Labradoodle.’ “
