what a weekend

 It all started Thursday , It snowed. The snow was pretty, it was a heavy snow. Several people lost power, thankfully we didn't. When I got to work the first thing I heard was 15 people was getting laid off. Now since I have only been there for about 20 months I knew it mite be me. I tried not to worry about it, but that didn't work. So for 7 1/2 hrs. I worried. then about 6:30 they escorted 4 of my co-workers out. I hated to see them go. They are all good people, but was also thankful it wasn't me. If there is another lay off, I will get it.
 Then on Saturday we didn't have water all day. You know we take so many things for granted, such as flushing, and showering. I was in a bad mood all day .  When my MIL called the town to see when the water would be back on, they didn't know. But they told her to put snow in the bath tub so it could melt and she could use it to flush with. That didn't work for us, my hubby went down the road to the creek and we flushed with creek Glad we have a creek near by. Then the mail came, Oh boy the kit I order, or so I thought til I opened it. WHAT a book, a book I didn't order, well I was HOT! Then when I called about the order the lady couldn't help me. Boy I didn't think that day would ever end. I guess I shouldn't have been so ill . Really I could have had it allot worst. Finally we got water, now we can flush. But still can't drink it. But I can shower,  yeah. I felt much better on Sunday. Silly how a shower can make you feel better.
  I have made progress on my stitching though. I have the house part finished on the Gingerbread house. Now I have started on the roof. You can't really see it in the picture but this is worked on perforated paper, and it has seed beads on it. I just love how these little houses work up, they are so cute.
   Thanks for letting me vent. I am very grateful for everything we have we are very blessed. I know so many have it allot worse than us.


  1. Beautiful work! Cannot wait to see it finished!

  2. Glad things are coming together for you. The gingerbread house is lovely. I can't wait to see it completed. Who is the designer for these ??.

  3. Sorry you had such a crummy day - sometimes it seems like everything conspires against us, you know? I'm glad things improved. I'm loving the gingerbread house, and like Dusty, I'd love to know who the designer is. I love working on perforated paper and with beads, so this seems right up my alley. :-)

  4. Really cool Gina! Sorry you have been having so much trouble, I have decided that 2013 is not a good year!! At least so far me it hasn't been really great either....
