Good Morning! Well the forecast is for snow and we got it.
Yep it is out there
In fact the forecast calls for snow every day this week. Not a thing to look forward to but I have no where to go so that is good. Right now it is 20 degrees, wind is 10 miles per hour, and the high expected is 25. Just when you think you will get out and pick up the mess that has accumulated along the fence it is covered again and will be all soggy when the weather breaks.
Well Saturday I tried my hand at the old Kenmore again and in the beginning it was a farce. The underthread was too loose and in trying to adjust that I bent the needle Well I had no more needles so Cindy said she would take me to find some. This adventure started at Uhans (a small local department store) that it turned out didn’t carry them.
Next we went to JoAnns which was closed until 3 pm due to no power. Then it was over to Michaels where we found what we needed and a couple of other items. But this store was two doors down from Petco so we decided to go there and buy Brandy’s food. Then it was on to Krogers for the fixings for dinner.
When we got back home I got the sewing machine setup and was ready to roll because I had measured, pinned, and cut my project before I had broke the needle.
This was Cindy’s new jeans
I needed to take in the waist and shorten the legs by several inches but by having her inseam measurement and measuring several times I finally got brave enough to cut them off.
She also got a pair of sweats that she wanted shortened so she could wear them safely to work out.
The sweats finished
Now accomplishing this took the sewing machine, an ironing board (that David found and set up) an iron, the tape measure, the thread box, scissors, and a bit of anxiety (because I had made mostly clown costumes and did mending). But with a few sown in wrinkles I got her fixed up.
Yesterday, while Cindy worked a double, I just read a little of Arthur And Sherlock. napped, got the zoo fed, made dinner for David and me, and watched Columbo on TV. (I used to love that show,)
Today is unplanned so far. I’ll just take it as it comes.
