It seems that for months and months Wednesday nights have been bad for driving. Tonight was no exception with rain at times heavy and fog. I noticed a Mama Turkey with several babies on the way to St. Andrews last Sunday evening. She was one big Mama. I would hate to run into her on the road.
Normally I don't mind driving but I went to Calais looking for plastic knives strong enough to cut steak this morning and tomorrow I have to go to St. John. I hope what I bought works out for my husband's Trap Shoot on Saturday. (I tried them on Shake and Bake chicken and they cut pretty good.) I have also been volunteered to make chocolate chip cookies and Caesar Salad.
Add to that list my quilting group is hosting a quilt show on Friday and Saturday in St. George and I am trying to put the binding on the last of 3 scrappy quilts. I said in passing to my husband, "Who would have imagined that there was that much fabric in my sewing room?" and he raised his hand. I had to laugh at that.
I can't sleep tonight because I started to think just as soon as I got into bed. I started to read and I found a slip of paper in the book that said, "Give me coffee to change the things I can change and wine to accept the things I can't." I don't know who wrote it but it would make a great rug. That is when I decided to get up and turn the computer on and look at Rug Hooking Daily and Facebook Rug Group. Then I checked to see if I had won the lottery but I still don't know because I would have to get up and find the ticket to check it.
Next week I hope to get back to the hooking. With the scraps all sewed together I now have room for wool and I can sort it into colour groups. I should take a road trip and look at wool and rugs. I think Nova Scotia is a good place for that and I may just get up some morning and go. Weather and turkeys permitting.
