CRASH!

Sometime last night (or perhaps today), this happened:

The wind was blowing quite hard. It knocked over the umbrella, which came smashing down on the table. The only reason the umbrella was open in the first place was because it was broken and wouldn't wind down so we could shut it. So, now we have a broken umbrella and a broken table.

Wow - hasn't it been a fun week?

After work today, I cleaned the laundry room where Rex lives. It was disgusting, and the smell is still not completely gone. It doesn't matter anyway; in a couple of days it will be just as bad again.

Oh Rex... I don't know how much more of this I can take.

The "T" key on my laptop isn't working properly. I have to press it very hard to get it to work. I don't know what's wrong with it. Have you ever noticed how many times you use the letter T? Lots! Maybe I could jus ype wihou using he leer . Would you undersand wha I was rying o say?

Ha! I didn't think so.

I finished quilting A Tisket a Tasket last night. Now just the binding to do and a few more ends to sew in. I know... it's about time! As soon as I finish those last bits, I'll show pics. And, I will get the OnlyChild to take some photos of me in my Bonne Fleur dress this weekend too.

Finishes are GOOD!

Happy Friday!

(p.s. I didn't end up going to Banff with Mr. P after all. But that's okay, really, because he sent me a text this morning saying they got 6" of snow last night. Ugh.)

Girl, you're in a funk. I think you need to get out of the house, forget about smelly cats, glass, and the letter "T" and have some fun. Don't you need a new pair of shoes to go with your Bonne Fleur dress? Summer clothes and paperback books for Paris? C'mon, get out and enjoy yourself.

Some days,er, weeks are like that, so sorry. Funny, my space bar is broken, it sticks, so I end upwith words all connected, or, a ton of spaces. It makes me a typing stutterer! :-}

Our patio table crashed last summer out of the blue. No wind, no umbrella. I had never seen that happen before. It's not fun to clean up and pick the bits out of the decking.
