I got a wonderful surprise at work yesterday. Earlier this week, my new friend Ruth responded to my request for where I could find DMC from a 20 year old dye lot. She is so kind and offered to send me hers from her own collection. Yesterday I received her envelope with the sweetest note inside, which made my day! Newer 815 was a pinkish tone to it and does not match what I started my blackwork sampler with. I was growing a little desperate with each stitch as I was running out of my floss. Ruth sent me three skeins and they are a perfect match so I will be able to finish. It was such a nice thing to do and I appreciate it so much!
Well, it is kind of pathetic to admit, but last night I fell asleep in the middle of writing my blog post. I had gotten up in the wee small hours of the morning yesterday to start work early. I worked about 10 hours in all yesterday. It was storming like all get out by the time I got home and I was pretty tired. The wind and rain was a bit crazy. I could hear stuff hitting the house all night. It had to have been raining sideways because it was hitting the windows directly. It helped me to sleep really hard.
When I woke up this morning, it was still storming. There were a couple of things I had wanted to do today, but I quickly decided that they were not necessary. Instead I decided that it should be a pajama day. I took a nice hot bath, but got back into my jammies for the rest of the day. I puttered a bit, but mostly stitched and caught up on my episodes of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. It was divine. I had a nice warm blanket to get under on the sofa but somehow Liesl claimed it as hers and I was out in the cold. You would think that I would learn by now.
I am totally counting the days until my vacation. January has been such a busy month so I am totally looking forward to my February vacation, I am supposed to work on my house, but perhaps I will just have nine days of jammies. I am so looking forward to finish unpacking and getting some important things done here. I do not have pictures up on the walls or anything. I am looking forward to taking care of all the things on my list.
Well, my eyes are getting heavy. Guess I better sign off before I fall asleep again.
