Well, the day finally arrived: my washer is fixed!! Fingers crossed it stays that way. The repair guys were here yesterday afternoon, installed a new motherboard and ran a cycle. After they left, I ran two loads of wash through and all worked well. Whew! It's been a long haul and I'm sure you all are happy to not have me writing about the laundromat anymore! LOL
It's been a funny week. I have not really been able to focus well enough to work on anything AND have not really felt like knitting or stitching or reading. Instead I wander around thinking about stuff. And that is annoying!
BUT, tomorrow is New Jersey Sheep and Wool and Dee and I will be going together (sorry Bonny is out of town and cannot join us this year). Showers are in the forecast, but the event is in several large barns, so out of any downpours that may occur.
And then Sunday is my birthday! I cannot believe I will be 70 years old. YIKES!!! We don't really have plans - we may go out for breakfast and/or dinner - yet to be determined. We need to get ready for vacation - so more laundry, packing, planning food to take, etc. And, of course, planning what to take for knitting, stitching and reading. The important things! I also need to get over to C&M's to water plants before we take off.
Meanwhile, I have one conference call today. Work continues to be amazingly busy and filled with annoying things...like on-line training that I had to complete before the end of the month (done yesterday) and my own self-evaluation (also due by the end of the month and completed yesterday). I would have skipped that one, but I have not yet given notice....not until the end of November, so I have to pretend for now that I am still going to be working next year! HA!
We finally had some rain yesterday and temps are (so far) a little milder today. Thank God - the last 3 days or so have been above 90!
The deer continue to graze on the fallen apples...but the ones in the trees are attracting others. Look closely and you will see a bird near the top enjoying some apple.
Have a wonderful weekend! I'll be lost among the sheep and all the wooly things!!
