Warning: Zombie Day Ahead!

I dragged my weary carcass through my front door at 2:30am this morning.


(folks resting, sleeping, plugged in to wherever they can – this is the corridor between the “plane train” stations in the Atlanta airport underground.)

Things were beautiful in Chicago, the problem happened to be Atlanta and the storm systems that put Atlanta on ground lock down for more than 2 hours – creating the proverbial tail spin reaction.

My flight out of O’Hare was delayed a couple of hours, my flight once I arrived in Atlanta first moved from a 7:29pm departure, to a 8pm departure, then a 9pm departure, then a 9:45pm departure….and a gate change…to a 10:15pm departure, only to find the plane had a problem and a new plane was ordered.

Then our 11:15pm departure turned into a 12:30am departure as we sat on the plane for more than an hour while they shuffled baggage around.


Glamor job?  THINK AGAIN!


But at least you can get a decent dinner at the Atlanta airport!


Waiting at baggage claim for a bag that didn’t show up.

Two bags made it, one bag did not – arriving on a later flight that was due in at 3:30am, and I was NOT hanging around to wait for it.  They will deliver it to my door.

I reached home at 2:30am and crawled into bed, just so happy to be here.

But I have to say the other passengers around me also refused to let a few weather hiccups get them down and I had fun talking to folks from far and wide – we made it through! (And I am sure they are all feeling the effects this morning as well.)

And I have some exciting news! Click to play:

Pencils arrived on my porch via UPS while I was still slumbering.

Orders will be shipped in the order that they were received, around everything else that is going on and I so appreciate your patience.

Quiltville Quote of the Day!

Sister's choice quilt shared during our sit and stitch on Wednesday evening from a previous workshop

Good friends that keep you laughing are so very important!

Hooray for Fridays!


  1. Glad they will deliver your missing bag to your door. Waiting for my Sister at the New Hobby Lobby opening today in our old mall.

  2. Woo hoo! Crossing my fingers that there are still some left when I get home tonight. I saw some of my favorite quilts and a few from the new book go by as you were flipping.

    Bonnie you are such a trooper and a great writer to. Love to read your Quips and Snips. Take care......

  4. My husband travels a lot and we always say, hi ho, the glamorous life.

  5. I love the way you just go with the flow. Better all this happens on the trip home than when you are heading to another wonderful workshop.

  6. You have such a great positive attitude - and I always think that you have pretty great traveling luck. But I did want to point out that at 1:34am - you already had 639 steps. You hopefully can't say that everyday... ;-)

  7. I sure do enjoy reading the adventures of Bonnie Hunter every morning while I eat my breakfast! Thanks you so much for your generosity as you share your life and quilty wisdom with us all!
