Rain, Rainbows and Glasses more than half full!
I arrived home yesterday –to once again be frustrated at my own simple-mindedness.
I may be home, but the laptop cord is back at the cabin – plugged into the wall outlet in the dining room aka cyber café --
I had taken the laptop sans cord out to the front porch to do my morning computer work, and then simply put the laptop in my travel bag when I was done and got everything ready to leave.
I was kind of distracted – While checking my travel plans for Sacramento later this month I discovered that while I thought I had made my return flight for 11am on the 18th, in an effort not to have the guild ladies drive me to the airport at 6am – I had not looked close enough, and my reservation is for 11:19PM on the 18th. Not AM. I’m on a red-eye flight on the 18th! GAH!
But wait –can I turn this into something positive?
((This rainbow was seen while driving to Greensboro last night. I love rainbows!))
Glass MORE than half full!
Over the weekend I got approval on my outline for the next book! I’m on board! C&T is going to be a great fit for me and I’m already liking who I’m working with.
My projected dates on the calendar: Turn in all quilts in November for photography. Manuscript is due in December. So you can see I have a busy several months ahead. But this is a timeline I can work with. I'm breathing easier.
And…they said “If you are ever in the neighborhood……”
Well, Sacramento is NOT that far from Concord. About 1.5 to 2 hours drive.
So, I’m renting a car in Sacramento, driving to Concord for a meet and greet with the folks at C&T! This is getting more and more exciting! So, focus on that glass MORE than half full thing…and think about the dreaded red-eye flight home LATER.
It’s all going to be good!
And since they say bad things come in threes….I think I’ve got that covered. Remember my falling one-strip-short-of-a-binding the other day? I am positive that was bad thing NUMBER ONE. Guess what I found when I got home:
Still on the cutting table! Under the ruler! DUH!
This morning I got that binding strip added and the binding completed!
And then I added a hanging sleeve to that seam!
I’m ready for some easy hand stitching of both binding and sleeve for my evenings!
But not tonight! DEFINITELY not tonight. We’ve got Quilt-Cam at 9pm Eastern, and I hope I will find you here ready to sew with me.
That logenge top has only two seams left…we can get it done tonight, I know we can!
Now I have a favor to ask. I’m off in an hour for an eye doctor appointment – this is a follow up on the check up I had last month.
They found swelling in both macula, and a cyst in my right eye.
Maybe THIS explains the increasing vision problems I’ve had over the past year or so? I thought it was too much computer work, and close sewing work. But I’m about to find out what is really going on with my eyes.
This is a glass MORE than half full kind of thing –if we know what the problem is we can deal with it.
Positive thoughts and prayers would be appreciated.
Thanks everyone, see you tonight!
PS..I got a message that Live Writer was fixed – so I tried it….we are back in business! Hooray!
