I wasn't so sure I was going to go out to get my mail today and that is saying a lot. Since I woke up at 2:30 this morning and couldn't see out my frozen windows, I had decided that I was going nowhere all day. My first challenge was getting my newspaper which was in the middle of an ice rink in my driveway. Ingenuity will get you everywhere. I put down 2 old throw rugs and after walking as close as I could get, I used my small rake to pull the paper toward me. Pretty ingenious if I do say so myself.
I had the luxury of not working today. I was supposed to substitute today but my school was closed due to the weather. Even though I am retired I still love a good snow day. I did make progress on the list I made this morning. And was extremely relieved not to drive in this mess.
|There it was, just challenging me to come get it.|
|Luckily, once the ice fell off, the tree sprang back to life.|
While I did cross things off my list, I did not sew. I am going to change my MO for tomorrow. I will sew first and work on other things on the list after that. By the time I came upstairs, it was too late to start anything. TOMORROW I will work on the wedding quilt and on binding a long-overdue birthday gift!
