|Pattern weights keep the tissue in place while I trace.|
I had scheduled a vacation /personal sewing day for Friday (yesterday) but obviously that didn't happen. We keep an apartment in Baltimore because I kept my Baltimore job when we got married in 2005. Thank goodness for that! We had a warm place to wait out the inconveniences. My husband took the brunt of it all - his commute from Baltimore to his job is very long, plus he kept dropping by the house to check on the cats, shut off the water (see I wouldn't even think about frozen pipes! but he did).
Now if you aren't bored enough already, let me keep going because it gets better! Last night, in the apartment we learned what happens when the battery dies in the smoke detector. It chirps every 30 minutes until you procure a 9 volt battery and replace it. And, that's not all! We also learned that the thermostat in the apartment uses batteries, too. And they die, too! Who knew? That's why you might get nothing but cold air! So that's what we learned between midnight and 3am this morning. We even learned that the local 7-11 is not open 24 hours a day. I'll say one thing - the roads in Baltimore were excellent. They did a good job clearing the snow, at least where we were.
Fascinating, isn't it?
Well, once you get to a certain age, you realize "hey at least we don't have little kids or a dog - it could have been a whole lot worse!" and of course, we are so thankful to even have a backup place to stay.
This sums up Howie's feelings:

And if you can't keep calm, try to keep a sense of humor.
Let me tell you I am one happy lady today!
Happy sewing, everyone!
