So, last Sunday, the stove breaks. New stove, sweet. The day after the stove is installed, the washer breaks. Great! We've got a service call scheduled for Tuesday, which, coincidentally, is the day that a major ice storm is scheduled to slam us. Perfect! There will be no new washer, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that he's able to fix this one in one service call. (Or I'll have to enlist my daughter to laundress duty--like that's gonna happen).
Yesterday the dog started having some kind of problems with a leg. He fell off the bed, he fell off the couch. But, he was well enough to get into our houseguest's bag and eat a mess of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, and then in the guestroom wastebasket where I think he might have helped himself to some used contact lenses. Tonight the hubs carries him up the steps and says "I think something is seriously wrong with him". Wonderful. Exactly when I'm supposed to get him to a vet between washer repair and ice storm and work is problematic. He's eating, so I think he's just going to have a little crate-cation tomorrow and we'll see what happens.
We had houseguests Thursday night and Friday night (their power was out due to the fact that it snowed). Fortunately we had an extra set of sheets for the guest bed (remember, the washer has broke), because a new set of houseguests moved in Saturday night. The hubs took them to the airport this morning.
I've been fighting with my sewing machine this evening...apparently a little thread gremlin has set up in my studio and keeps breaking my thread. It had better not be a machine problem, but it's not looking good as it's Presencia thread and a new needle. Shoot me now.
Oh, and while the hubs is carrying the dog upstairs he informs me that he has broken the lid to the 'cookie' jar. The Radko Las Vegas cookie jar flashes before my eyes, but what he means is the Polish pottery dog treat jar, the one that I looked for for years until I found one the perfect size. Good grief! What next?
In the meantime, I've started yet another project:
And this month's Follower Appreciation Giveaway prize is:
A little something to take your winter blues away. It's a yard of Monet's Countryside Fabric by Fabri-Quilt.
One more day to comment, and as long as the roof doesn't cave in, the computer crash, the refrigerator head south, I'll post the winner on Tuesday (assuming we don't lose our power in the ice storm).
Check back tomorrow to see if I managed to complete the project I started tonight. Have a great Monday!
