There has been some cool stuff happening the last couple of days, but I couldn’t focus to write very much due to a killer migraine. It’s finally gone now (thank you, doTerra InTune Blend). Yesterday I was going out to lunch with Meigi and we parked about half a block away from the restaurant. We got out of the car and in front of us was a time-travel business.
Seriously. Mostly seriously.
It was a haberdashery. A hattery. Here in my little town. I was amazed, and I wanted to go in, but our tummy alarms had been going off for quite a while, so we walked on toward food. We enjoyed our lunch, and then headed back to our car. Did I mention it was parked in front of a time-travel place? I couldn’t resist the pull so we went in. It even smelled like the 1800’s. All the hat forms were lined up on shelves against the back wall, and some of the most gorgeous, hats hung around the room. We were greeted by a woman (whose name I forgot – sorry, migraine. Edit: Her name is Covi. Thank you, Jennifer.) who told us about their business, and about how the hats are made in the same traditional way that they have been for centuries. We met the proprietor and craftsman, Chandler, and he talked to us a little more about the hat-making process, and where the materials come from.
It was enthralling, and I soooo much want to get one as a surprise for Arctic Boy one day after he gets home from his mission. We thanked them for teaching us about what they do, and walked out the door and back into 2016. It felt a bit like I’d lost something. Or gained something. It changed me a little, that 20 minute time-travel experience.
Now I find myself wondering, what if there was such a thing as a time-travel hat? Hmm. National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) starts on Tuesday. This might be the seed of a good idea.

Mercy cannot rob justice. In order for the atonement to apply, we have to acknowledge and repent of our sins. (Even the “little ones” we do. There are no secrets from God.)
15 And now, the plan of mercy could not be brought about except an atonement should be made; therefore God himself atoneth for the sins of the world, to bring about the plan of mercy, to appease the demands of justice, that God might be a perfect, just God, and a merciful God also.
