Better day until

Saturday, May 23, 2020

It really was a better day after I just laid on the couch almost all morning trying to decide how I felt. Until I got up and opened the frig. it was dark in there. So while I took a shower I thought about what to do. I hate the down I went. Flipped all the switches and changed the furnace filters came back up and it's still dark in the frig. Now we have a real big problem. Almost felt like just sitting down and crying but didn't really see any sense in that either.

Called my lawn mower guy. He's at work until 10 pm tonight but would stop then. He calls me back an hour later and says he has a friend on the way over to save me. And he did. One of circuits has popped but I didn't realize there were 2 boxes down there. Then when he came upstairs again it was still dark. But we found that one of those very fancy kitchen safety sockets was tripped. Never in a million years would I have thought of that.

That is how my day started and since then it's gone pretty good. The rain stopped and I was able to get more masks part way together and some laundry along with the dishwasher running.

1. it got warm enough this afternoon to read outside
2. Buck is sleeping on a blanket at my feet.
3. friends of friends

we are going to try hard to just get up in the morning instead of trying to make up my mind if I even want to get up. I have a rather large pile of masks that need turning right side out and pleating along with getting the binding ready for Kate's quilt. It's not going to Seattle for one of my grand kids it's for my oldest great niece. Don't know if I should have started this but I have 26 great nieces and nephews. Maybe I just need to start a big pile of quilt to have handy.

    What a relief that someone was able to pop over and figure out the problem - like you, I never would have suspected one of those fancy kitchen outlets of being the culprit!

    So glad that the refridge was an easy enough fix, didn't you just get that refridge within the past year, I thought.
    No sitting out doors to read for us today, hot and humid again. We made a trip to by a new dishwasher today, the car thermometer read 98 at 2 PM, and felt even hotter when we got out of the store.
    I did do a bit of sewing this evening of the 2 blocks that I have the patterns for for this 12 week project. This is my first project that I am working with 2 1/2 inch blocks on one of the blocks, haven'It decided if it is something I want to work with to often yet. The next block arrives in my e-mails usually on Monday, but might be Tuesday since it is a holiday.

    Calamite, these days are very hard to get started on. Glad they could fix your circuit for you so you can have light in your fridge plus it keeps your food fresh.

    You are doing such a good job on the masks and other projects you have started. emoticon

    Lots of sewing ahead for you. I had kind of a lazy and do nothing day today. Raining this AM and got humid this afternoon. Glad you got the frig figured out. I learned to look at the ground fault plugin (GFI) first and usually find it "thrown".
