There is SOME button or area on this laptop that I accidentally hit with my wrist every once in awhile, and it completely erases all I have typed. I cannot MAKE it happen no matter what I press on. UGH! If any of you happen to know HOW I am doing that, please let me know. It happens when I rest my left wrist down on the laptop -- but not if I do it on purpose.
if I can keep my words from disappearing,
I was saying that it has rained a lot yesterday and today and maybe for several more days.
It is a welcome rain but our grass is SO HIGH, and the man who is supposed to show up every other week to mow it never shows up. I have called him and texted him. No response.
Looks like Jerry is going to have to get the mower out -- like it or not -- but he can't while it is raining.
I planned on having a new video for you today, and I was really excited about it, but plans kept changing and then they just didn't happen at all. I stopped the owl project and cleaned off a mountain of stuff from one of my cutting tables, prepared a sewing project, and then nothing. I was really upset about it because I didn't know WHAT happened, and I had made so many plans including ignoring my husband. I told him I had to get ready for company in my quilt room. We were going to sew and make a video. I spent most of the morning preparing.
I've decided that I expect too much from relationships. I expect that other people think like I do and when they say something will happen at a certain time, that I can count on that happening. Or, at the very least, a phone call saying "the reason I'm not showing up when I said I would is....". Our day had already been cut in half due an unexpected occurrence that couldn't be helped. At least, I knew about that one.
I got notice 45 minutes late that a better offer had come up, and it would be even later still, but by then I had convinced myself that the person just didn't give a ****, and I couldn't quell the tears.
Soooooooooooo, it is back to the owls tomorrow morning after church. I'll make plans to meet with MYSELF and I WILL show up. I am going to finish those owls tomorrow, at least, the quilting part. I would love to put Edyta's quilt on, but it has quite a ways to go before it will be ready. I think I'll go back to making clothes for awhile except for my triangle friendship top.
OH, I have the butterfly quilt too. SO MUCH TO DO, but that is a good thing.
Princess Di WAS going to come today, but she couldn't come due to thunderstorms, heavy rain and lightning. She let me know first thing this morning, and I totally agreed. I don't drive in that weather either. Don't know when I'll see her again. It is supposed to rain all week.
Yesterday, I received my birthday gift from Jolene. I would show you a picture of it, but our internet is soooooooooooooooooooooooooo sloooooooooooooooooooooooow right now, I can't upload a pic. Come back tomorrow, and I will show you all the fun stuff Jolene sent me for my birthday. It is easier to do upstairs then in my bed, where I am right now.
Blessed Sunday to you all!
