Good evening! Hope you have had a good day! I hesitate to tell you about mine...seems my days are full of craziness and if I tell you what happened today you may begin to think that I make this stuff up. I assure you I don't, and believe me I would rather this kind of stuff happen to someone else! LOL
I'll begin with the crazy for today. I've decided to soldier on and try to accomplish the UCJC (ultimate crazy January challenge). I've had this pattern sitting in my To Do pile for a while now. I love this little pattern. I had a giveaway back in October and had given this pattern away to Babs *waving to Babs*. I decided I would like to stitch it and went back and found another one and got all the supplies. It's been crying softly since and I finally got it started today. It's a hardanger piece, so wish me luck because I've only ever done one other one! LOL I am stitching it on 32 count white linen over two and using the recommended materials.
Now for the interesting bits. I was calmly minding my own business at work today when my cell phone rang. It was DS and he sounded a bit flustered. He asked if I could come home....right away...some stranger had rung the doorbell, and before he could get to the door, he heard him trying to open the door. Silly me had hung a bow on the door and the peep hole was covered, so he opened the door to see if it was one of his friends...it wasn't. The guy said he knew we had lived in the house since 2005 (not true) and we had switched from Comcast (also not true) and wanted to offer us a deal if we switched back. DS told him we didn't want to switch, and the guy asked if there were someone else he could talk to. When DS told him no, he realized that was a mistake...so he called me right away. I was only 10 minutes away and came as quick as I could. I saw the guy (he was wearing an orange coat) and as soon as he saw me, he began to run out of the neighborhood. If he had been legitimate I'm sure he would have cornered me and tried to get me to switch cable companies...so I'm pretty sure he was up to no good. DS also told me that right before the guy rang the bell the phone had rung and our caller ID said "out of area". DS doesn't answer those calls, and there was no message left on the machine. I'm pretty sure he was after something, and I'm thankful I work close enough to home that I could come right then. Of course I was the only one working in the store, and had to text my boss...all I said was "family emergency, going home". I then locked the door and left. I'm lucky to have such an understanding boss when it comes to family emergencies and illness.
We left shortly after that for a mad dash to my LNS for supplies for tomorrows crazy...dinner at Peace a Pizza, and basketball practice. I'm beat!! I'm headed to bed because I have a date with Astrid tomorrow, if I can get a halfway decent night's sleep tonight! See you tomorrow!
