Good Gloomy Morning!
Yes, it is grey out there and our temps today should be staying in the 60's - quite a difference from 90 and sunny over the weekend.
Don't believe I mentioned that I spent a good chunk of time on Sunday waiting for a tow truck. Not my idea of fun, believe me. The car that Fletch uses was having "issues" and the check engine light had come on. Fletch used the code reader he has and it indicated low voltage. So, he made an appointment for our mechanic to look at it on Monday. Sunday afternoon he had me follow him down to the auto place to drop off the car...but it died/gave out half way there. And it took 1.5 hours for a tow truck to arrive. Not fun. Anyway, it was the alternator and several $$$$ later yesterday we have the car back.
Work yesterday was ok. Lunch was not! I had ordered Chick-Fil-A for the group (they LOVE it) and only a portion of the order was delivered! I had requested a BIG garden salad and a BIG kale salad and the two they brought were small. They skipped the nuggests I had requested. Just a mess. One of the guys said they thought I was sending a message that they were too fat and needed to lose weight - lol. I offered to go fetch more food, but they were ok with minimal portions. Hopefully today (Mexican fajita bar) will be better! Thankfully this is my last day in the office this week.
Mabel continues to improve and is slowly getting back to her normal self. Last night she came up at 2 a.m. walking around on top of me. I went downstairs and let her out. An hour later I woke hearing a fox "barking" in the back somewhere. I just rolled over and went back to sleep. When I came downstairs to turn on the coffee this morning, she was waiting by the back door, eager to come in and have some food.
All of this brings us to Tuesday morning and Tiny Needle Tuesday. Folks, the end is in sight! Don't make the mistake of thinking I'm close to finishing this Adam & Eve sampler, but the space left to stitch in now well defined - the side borders are complete and the bottom border has been started!
Adam and Eve are still MIA, and I doubt they will appear prior to the tree being stitched. That will keep me motivated to get the tree done so that I can fill in part of the lower space with A&E.
I've avoided looking at my stash to pick my next piece because I don't need/want to be tempted to let this one marinate for awhile. Hopefully I can plug away on this and get the tree at least started this week.
That, folks, is a wrap for today. I hope your Tuesday is a pleasant one!
