And Roy does not care, light or dark, when he walks he is on a mission.
Now I have a confession to make. Just in case anybody out there has the impression that I have it all together...........whatever ALL is, I don't.
I have some serious flaws. That occasionally come back and bite me in the butt.
I had several containers of blue jeans, that were stored in the barn all winter. Sometime this spring, they got put outside the barn, to make room for other stuff, like wood pellets. When we opened the containers up last week, they were all fine but one. For some reason, one huge plastic tub got wet, and the jeans inside just plain smelled bad.
A sensible and sane person would have sent them to the landfill.
But NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, not me.
I wouldn't want to waste all those jeans.
So I decided to do a little outside laundry........filled some tubs with water, bought some bleach, some detergent..........and went to work. Then I let them soak.
But the weatherman is predicting rain tomorrow, so I decided that it would be a good thing to get those jeans hanging on the cable that I use when I dye fabric.
Someone.........ahem.....decided it would be a good idea to grab my camera and get the evidence.
It took quite a while to get them all hung up, and it was really hot, and I was steaming out there....but determined.
SAVE THOSE JEANS SAVE THOSE JEANS
The cable stretched across the back yard, from one tree to another. By the time I reached up to hang the LAST pair of jeans on the cable, I was overheated, wet, glad to be done with it.
That's when I heard it.
You guessed it. The freaking cable broke. The whole thing fell down.
I couldn't believe my eyes.
Now they are all laying on the ground, waiting for the rain to rinse them, and when the rain is over, I will deal with them, again.
Times like this, I wonder. What the HELL was I thinking?
So now you know.
I am far from perfect.
I retreated to the back bedroom to work on my new shawl warp.
Licking my wounds.
I was feeling better in no time.
Now just to give some credit where credit is due.
I had an order for chair seats. I picked out the colors, and then gave the job to Lois. It was a little tricky, getting them to be exactly 14" square.
She worked hard on them, and they came out PERFECT.
Kudos to Lois.
(she is probably looking to get promoted.....to what, though?)
Aren't they nice???
And just to change it up a bit.......
Jinx wants to know..........
whatever happened to that "take a nap" idea you had back in.........uh........January?????
