I think all the remodeling is getting to me. I dreamed last night that I was shopping at a place called Chuck Wagon’s Flooring Emporium. Seriously?!?!
If I find out there actually IS such a place, I’ll be floored . . .
OK, maybe I got up a bit too early this morning.
But before I was awake, when I was done shopping at Chuck’s, I went to a quilt retreat being held in a school gymnasium somewhere, and they made us check in our sewing machines, and then fed us pizza through a buffet line, which we had to eat with dirty forks.
I’m not sure what it means that my friend, Rose Marie, was there, and said it was perfectly OK, “go right ahead”, yet she wasn’t in line herself. She was hanging back drinking coffee (from a clean cup, no doubt) . . . hmm . . . suspicious, I say.
And to top it off, my fellow guild member, Scarlett, was there wearing a hat she had made herself. I must say, her ability to create headgear out of pantyhose and yarn in a combination of knit, crochet, and weaving was astonishing! And her attention to detail . . . she had even put a button and buttonhole on the chin straps so it could be fastened on.
Should I be leery of my next quilting retreat?
Thankfully, I was awakened by the thunk of Bonnie’s headstall landing on the bed next to me, and My Cowboy shouting “Up and at ’em!”
I fumble my way through the house to see my horse, already saddled, standing by the back door waiting for me. There was nothing to do but get dressed and climb on. So I did.
By the time we got back to the house, we had a parade of barn cats following, and when we got closer, all the kittens came out to see what was going on, too. Nothing like getting the entire farm involved in your morning rounds . . . Even the cows thought we’d been gone long enough and came to make sure they were still gonna get breakfast.
Everybody’s fed and happy, and now I’m hoping to get some quilting done.
Tonight, I’m off to my guild meeting for real. We’re having a potluck dinner, so I hope we get clean silverware to eat with, and Scarlett, please leave your new hat at home!
