This, and the screaming weatherman prompted me to call Aunt Chrissy in a panic over the lack of provisions here at Chez Spinster, so we decided to make an evening of it.
First up was a trip to see the girls at Magrane Pet Medical Center (waving hi to Miss Lori and Miss Neika!). Both Stewey and Bosco were in desperate need of pedicures, and Stewey wanted to have a discussion with his behaviorist, Miss Neika about potty training, overall behavioral issues, and how he might get me to stop threatening to send him to military school. (Apparently, he feels that the potty issues and behavior problems are on MY side of the equation, so I'm headed off to the self-help section of the Borders momentarily.) Damn dog.
After a stop at the Panera for some sustenance, we hit the Target for toilet paper and laundry soap (I mean, come on....if I'm going to be trapped in a house I might as well get the laundry done), and then it was off to our Martin's for groceries. (Martin's is the local grocery store chain, and we go to the fancypants one that treats us like a couple of rock stars. Could it be because we buy enough food from them to feed a small country? or is it just because we bat our eyelashes at the nice deli guy?).
By the time I fell into the Happy Chair I'm afraid there wasn't enough gas left in the tank to do any stitching, but I do have a little progress to show from Wednesday:
This piece is like a really wonderful box of chocolates...I'm trying to savor every bite of it and make it last as long as possible. The construction of the stitches is fun and very very satisfying, so if you ever get the chance to play around with this type of thing, go for it! You will feel like a freakin' genius! (Trust me...I have to take THAT particular feeling whenever I can get it!)
That's the report from the tundra for today! Stay warm and safe and dry and have a wonderful weekend! Woo Hoo!
