Once again it is Randomday, when the blog eats leftovers. I spent my morning sleeping in (a bit), and then after Quarta opened a curio cupboard and had a hard time getting everything back, I got sidetracked on a bit of instrument repair that I've been meaning to do for awhile:
The cats have been sitting on the ductwork in the basement, the ones that are insulated and wrapped in plastic and lead to the master bedroom. Not coincidentally, I think, our bedroom has been getting no heat lately. And poor Steve has a nasty cold. The furnace repair guy came today, we are several hundred dollars poorer, and the heat is back on.
I went Goodwill shopping in Portland today and found 3 pairs of jeans. I was particularly happy that all the pairs I tried on actually fit. The last time I looked for jeans it was a lot more depressing. On the way back I wound through picturesque Portland neighborhoods that reminded me strongly of my Grandma's old neighborhood in Middletown, Ohio. And I visited a yarn shop that I'd never been to before. So, a good day. Now I will just try to avoid catching that cold...
I have been honored with a special challenge for the blog, one that I'm working on but that will take a few more days before I can post it. Stay tuned.
