Did you survive our winter blast last week?
I’m sure glad it is in the past, even if there are a few reminders sticking around where the snow piled up the worst. I got cold and just couldn’t get warmed up no matter how high the furnace was turned up. I think it was just the knowing how cold it really was that made me think I was cold.
The worst problem wasn’t the lack of electricity, as ours stayed on through the entire time. It was the lack of our modern technology, the computer. I had taken it in to get the viruses removed, and there were so many I had to leave it in the shop. Talk about withdrawal, I really suffered through it. I was so glad to get it back, and hope that doesn’t happen again. We don’t know how much we depend on things until we don’t have them.
I was glad to have my sewing machine. I looked around for something to work on as I had gotten a lot of my projects finished up. I found a box with a quilt top I had started back in 2010. I decided it needed to be put together, so got all of it out and started on it. I have it ready to do some applique.
There are a lot of things going on right now. Jennings County has announced their annual Craft and Foods Day. It will be Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Jennings County Library. Their theme this year is cinnamon, and the foods categories will be: main dish, side dish, dessert, and other. You may enter any or all categories by bringing the dish with the recipe. These will be served at noon and judging will be by those who are eating.
