So far, it looks like the worst of the ice is staying a bit south of us and the worst of the snow is staying a bit north of us. It’s so predictable that the I-44 corridor about 70 miles south of us gets the worst of everything! Ice seems to follow that path, tornadoes seem to follow that path. It all seems to forget all about my little area . . which makes me very happy. The day isn’t over yet though so I’m not going to hold off saying that we dodged the bullet.
I woke up this morning and laughed at myself. The first thought I had when my eyes popped open (after the alarm jarred me out of bed) was I have the WHOLE day to myself. I wasn’t thinking . . oh, no, I have to go downstairs and Chad isn’t there! It does take time and I guess I thought I was past the point of being sad when he left and it surprised me last night when I couldn’t hold back the tears.
Last night I loaded another quilt and got it quilted – though it wasn’t one of the ones I need to get done this week. It was one that was getting the same panto that I had loaded on the longarm. About 10:15 p.m. when I finished, I said to myself that I was going to set in the recliner and knit all day but this morning I decided I’d rather work on the striped bear paw. Maybe I can finish the top today.
