Why is it we say things like, "it was a typical Monday."? What is it about Mondays? I kind of like Mondays - I love "starts." Monday is the start of a new week.
Yeah - right. Yesterday, Monday ... not so great.
I woke up to torrential rain. It was dark out and rainy, rainy, rainy. My plan was a playdate with my sewing buddies but I really wanted to wait until the rain let up some.
I settled in with hot coffee and some knitting and suddenly the sun came out. I started to gather up my sewing stuff and it started pouring rain again. I'm talking - buckets!
I moved on to my sewing room and started playing with these. It's Monday - why not start something new!
wait for it ...
a dead battery!
And ... because a long time ago, we had 2 teenaged female drivers in the house ... I have (and have never needed nor used) AAA. While waiting (and waiting) for help - I just happened to have some handsewing with me and got a lot done on my Sue Spargo class project.
Michael, from AlleyCat Towing to the rescue. 2 hours (and $125) later, the battery is replaced, car is full of gas, it's not raining, the sun is out and it's about 8000 degrees and I'm "glowing."
After all that - I deserved a treat.
Back home to wash up/change clothes and I decided that maybe, just maybe - I was supposed to stay home and I did.
I worked on a new quilt design and made 3 (of the 9) blocks.
So ... moral of this LONG story ...
sometimes Mondays are Mondays ... and that can be a good thing or not.
