Vince left way early Friday morning to go down to Neosho to some kind of “being more green” seminar. It was a 2 day seminar — yesterday and today so he spent the night. I talked to him last night and I think . . I think I wasn’t paying attention because all I remember from a one hour conversation is (1) it costs too much for us to install solar panels; (2) goats are fun to watch; (3) someone about 20 miles north of here sells organic chickens but you have to call and order them ahead of time but Vince can’t remember who it is. I’m not sure how you order if you don’t know who to call but . . we’ll figure it out.
Speaking of chickens . . do you all know what a big chicken I am? I am so scared of the dark. I am even scared when Vince is home but I’m really, really, really scared when I’m here by myself. Of course, since Vince was gone, Chad had 2 parties he had to attend and didn’t get home til 1 a.m. What does a fraidy cat like me do when the dog has to go out — on a leash — with a human attached to the leash and I’m the only human in the house? Don’t think I didn’t consider calling the police to come watch me take him out. I didn’t but I surely wasn’t happy traipsing around in my front yard at midnight.
So, what did I do with an entire day to myself?
First, I screwed up this block.
What’s screwed up? Well, there’s more to the block than you see and I made the one on the left too big . . quite a bit too big so I had to remake the one on the right. I wasn’t sure about that red center in the one on the left and I didn’t like it so much anyway.
What else did I do?
I screwed up the new block I made.
See the bottom of the red point? Remember the iron that I love so much but the temperature control dial fell out last year? This iron . .
I loved that iron so much but I knew it was getting too hot and yep, it burned a hole right in the fabric so now the T-Fal iron that I loved for so long has been tossed in the trash, a new block has been made and this is the iron I’ll use for a while.
One of the reasons I had quit using this iron after I first bought it 5 or 6 years ago is because it beeps. It beeps all the time! It beeps when it gets to the right temp; it beeps when it’s fixing to go to sleep; it beeps again right before it falls asleep and it beeps a series of beeps as it’s turning itself off. But . . remember that I mentioned that I come to the computer while I wait for the iron to re-heat and then I forget about it and then it shuts itself off? Not this one . . ain’t no one going to forget about it because it just sits over there and beeps and chirps and squeals. Maybe I’ll like it this time. And, it seems to heat up real fast and . . I can control the temp because it isn’t missing that vital component!
You might think that’s the only things I messed up yesterday but . . that wouldn’t be quite right. Notice anything wrong with this block?
I can’t remember the last time I had so many boo-boos in one day. Oh well . . that helps keep one humble.
