The weekend was interesting. I worked on making new cushions for a chair - more on that in another post.
Mr. Wonderful had a high school reunion on Saturday. They had a 'get-together' at the park in the middle of the afternoon then the reunion Saturday evening. I don't know who's bright idea it was to spend two hours in the park, in the afternoon, in the middle of July in Texas! I told them the 'old folks' should have reunions in the fall. Dang but it was HOT. (then yesterday oldest kidlet had a message that they were trying to plan their 10yr reunion - obviously they are a little smarter and planning something in the fall!) Anyway - when we got home from the park we discovered there had been water issues up the road and we had dirty water - oh joy. (and after two hours at the park we both needed a shower!) Once we got through flushing the pipes and waiting for water to heat back up and we were ready to go, we figured out that the a/c wasn't working! Remember - this is July in Texas! Called and left a message for the repair guy and he finally made it out to fix it about 10:00pm (after hours and weekend!) One thing about having grown kidlets living at home is that one of them was here to meet the a/c guy while we went to the reunion. It was starting to cool back down by the time we got home. Yeah!
Okay - now for the good stuff. To celebrate my one year blogaversry I'm going to have a little give-away! A pincushion, pair of marking pins, and a scissor fob (with scissors!)
When I set this blog up I had originally thought I would do my first post on my birthday (frankly I thought it would be harder to set up and I thought I would need the extra days to figure it out - I still haven't figured it all out!) Anyway - I jumped the gun and posted my first post on the 15th so I will draw a name from all the comments on THIS POST. I will draw sometime Sunday (my birthday) afternoon.
I have met some wonderful people through blogging (a few I've even met in person!) It has been a lot of fun - I think I'll stick with it a while longer!
That is it for today!
