Or in this case .... the battery's dead and I'm not going anywhere. It was bad enough to have to work today, but having to pay for someone to come out and jump start me this morning is the pits! See, I should have gone to the quilt store again yesterday!
I'm beginning to wonder if I'll ever get all the little things sorted out so I can truly be a household of one. It's been almost a year, and it seems that every time I turn around it's something else. I called AAA first thing, and it turns out I don't "own" that account any more. Amazing since it was always my account. Guess they don't bother checking when a spouse calls to change it to their name. Just something else I have to deal with.
I grabbed the camera this morning to get pictures of the snow on the mountaintops on the way to work. I had a breathtaking view until they built a subdivision between me and the mountains. Now I have to go a couple of hundred feet before I can see them. But I know they're there, with beautiful snow covering the ugly ash that's been sitting on them for a couple of years.
But on a good note, I crossed the eighty mark with Dutch Treats this weekend - actually finished number eighty-one. My goal is to hit 100 before I put them aside for a couple of months to work on other things. There are 196 blocks, plus an appliqued border, so there's still a ways to go, but I know this is one that I definitely will finish. I started it on the 4th of July 2004 but didn't work on it for several months before and after my shoulder replacement surgery. With the new bionics, there's no stopping me now! LOL!
Better go stand outside and keep an eye out for the tow truck. This is going to be expensive!
