What a Day!
First, I overslept and was scurrying around getting my hair dry and dressed this morning. I grabbed shoes out of the ones I had put aside to polish. This is what I saw I had on when I got home a while ago! Sheesh...
Then when I got to work, there a long memo from our Receptionist. It seems the employee who had two strikes called in at 7:00 this morning that her dad was in the hospital and she wouldn't be in. When the Receptionist said she was going to put her in my voice mail, the employee responded that she didn't want to talk to "that b**ch," and proceeded to give the Receptionist confidential accounting information that I would need when I got to the office. Three strikes. She will be a former employee the moment she sets foot in the office from her personal leave. The CEO was furious. Give 'em enough rope ...
And I just realized that I forgot on my desk at work the 17 copies of the paper piecing pattern I drew out last night. So much for getting started on that block. Guess I'll work on the red and white quilt assembly tonight. Oh, yeah, and polish shoes!
I'm doing real good on the No Fabric challenge. It's only three days into it, but I really don't want any new fabric. Of course, this Saturday is the goodbye get together at The Fabric Patch. I've already said my goodbyes, but I know myself well enough to know I'll mosey on over there just to give another hug to everyone. But I'm leaving my checkbook in the car. I am! Watch me!
~ Very light traffic all week. (I probably just jinxed it for tomorrow!)
~ New flowers being planted in the medians in our neighborhood!
~ The never-ending inspiration from my quilty friends!
