Some Progress on UFOs
Just picked these two up from the quilter. They're both small so the binding should go on quickly, but it's just too hot to think about sitting under a quilt right now.
It was so hot yesterday. How hot was it? I know there's a joke in there somewhere, but my brain is fried and I can't think of it. I came home to a nice cool house, and immediately got the chills. So I went to bed at 8:00 and shivered for an hour until I fell asleep. Then woke up at 10:30 sweating. I hope this allergy/infection thing isn't getting worse.
I had a huge snaffu trying to get flowers to Louisiana. I ordered from the FTD online service early Monday morning. Yesterday morning right before I left for work, I received an email that my order was not able to be delivered. No explanations. Period. Some frantic phone calls and I was able to finally get to a florist next door to the funeral home, and they walked something over just before the service. I called my credit card company and put a "stop pay" on the FTD charge just in case it came through. Real irritating. Friends told me to use flowers.com next time, but I think I'll go back to my old way of doing things - by telephone directly to the florist in whatever town.
Sally gave me a lot of food for thought this week. One thing she mentioned was this that she read: "Reduce your GPH and increase your TPH. GPH is 'Gripes Per Hour'… TPH is 'Thanks Per Hour'." I'm going to practice that this week and see if I can't get back within the speed limit of life!
