Well, everyone's really excited about this hurricane that's supposed to be coming our way. As for me, I have my oil lamps on the kitchen counter, filled the bathtubs with water (for flushing and washing), all of my pitchers are filled with drinking water, and I got up early to bake Mark's birthday cake. Hopefully my planning ahead means we won't lose power.
So, for miscellany....
Who else gets annoyed at the stupid prices of wrapping paper? Well, I found some for sale at a local chocolatier's "seconds" shop (and with premium chocolate, who cares if it's pretty, because it's still decadent). For about $40 for all of this, who's complaining?
One of the girls bought us a "Cash Cab" calendar last year; it's good solid family entertainment for all of us to check the questions every day. Friday's question related to a very obscure book, Eats, Shoots and Leaves:
I happen to have that book. If you're a grammar nerd, it's wickedly funny.
Here's the teaser, from the back cover.
This weekend, I finally finished a dress which I cut out a good month ago. I'm wearing it today, for Mark's birthday; pictures Wednesday (or some time). I also cut out a skirt for Faye's Carnival of Skirts challenge; if the power goes down, maybe I'll just sew it up on my treadle machine. Or maybe not; it might be too dark in here.
Happy Monday, everyone! Hope not too many of you are disrupted by this storm.
