My dental hygienist retired. Need I say more?
Other than that, a pretty good day! After
torturing me cleaning my teeth and sealing the sensitive spots, the new-to-me hygienist said “don’t eat or drink anything for 45 minutes.” This is new! I am sure she is a lovely woman and very competent, and I am sure that hideous water needle thing she used does a great job on my plaque, but I hated it, and my gums are sore now. AND I WAS MEETING CRIMSON CROW FOR BREAKFAST AFTER MY APPOINTMENT!!!
Luckily, we had no firm plans beyond meeting, and we had a very patient waitress who didn’t mind waiting while we chatted away the remaining time until I could eat and drink!
We had a good morning, chatting away as we did errands. I dropped off more things at the shop while she looked around, we
tortured entertained the very nice customer service guys at the building supply store, and stopped at the local craft store for some silver clasps for me before parting.
Once home, I had just enough time to return a call to my current and hopefully future boss – we are sorting things out! Not in the same place yet on a few important things, but I think we will get there.
Then the power went out. That’s right. Power did not go out AT ALL in all those storms we had in January, February, and March. But it went out today for a couple of hours. It was windy, but I wouldn’t have thought it was THAT windy. Luckily I had just hung up the phone when it went out. So I did what any
sane normal knitting-addicted person would do – I sat down immediately, pulled a blanket over my lap and knit. Without stopping, for two hours. In complete peace and quiet. It was quite nice.
Now A is home, the power is on, the house is warming up, and we have come to an agreement on where we stand on those things the boss and I are not together on. Tomorrow I will call and see if we can come together and I have a job. If so, I start Monday. YIKES!
I checked Etsy and found a custom order for a toddler sweater/hat and mitten set – the mom loves Slipped Stitches Charleston set I knit, and wants one in a bigger size for her little girl. She needs it by the end of November – I love the luxury of time!
Oh, and Crimson Crow helped me ID another new-to-me bird – a yellow-rumped warbler. Funny name for a bird with a yellow head I thought. Until I saw it again, and it carefully showed me ALL of its yellow parts. Yup, it has a yellow rump. 🙂 Zumba is impressed, she watched it very closely.
That’s all – I wonder what will happen tomorrow?
