Yesterday's grocery shopping trip was quick. Our list was short, and we were home by around 10:15 a.m., which left me lots of time to finish up my quilting for the day. I even did some housework. (Polishes fingernails on shirt.) Time was short because Mike and I still needed to drive into downtown Portland.
So, I finished up the last of the chicken blocks. Yesterday's addition to the buffet:
Fried Chicken. This one took forever. I was about one-quarter of the way through it when I realized the quilt corner was folded under, and I was quilting it to the back. Yikes. And I told myself I wouldn't do that.
Today I'm getting my hair cut. It's a good thing because my life depends on it. Seriously. Every time I look in the mirror lately, I consider slitting my throat rather than go on another day with my hair looking the way it does. It'll be the first time my regular hairdresser has had a go at it since last November. Mike cut it once around March of this year. Then, when salons reopened, my hairdresser was dealing with a Stage Zero breast cancer. (I didn't even know Stage Zero was a thing.) Anyway, she's back at work now and considered cancer-free, so good for her. In the meantime, a different person cut my hair in June. He did a good job, but after having Mike hack away at it in March, it needed to grow out a little more on the sides. Well, that brings us to today and me considering desperate measures rather than go on another day with it. The end is in sight. You can look for me to blog another day.
Also, we need to go back to downtown Portland to pick up Mike's car. He's having the windshield replaced. A few of you noted that you'd had your windshields replaced at home. Yes, and we have too. And we tried this time. But this is Mike's Corvette convertible. We had a company come out and take a look at it. They said it needed some weather stripping replaced. Well, the car is a 2001, and we've spent the past month trying to get this weather-stripping issue resolved. Finally, we decided to go with a different company after getting the run-around from the first company. The guy in downtown Portland is something of a specialist when it comes to Corvettes. I don't really care. Just get it done, already!
So all of that to say, I'm hoping to get in some sewing today, but it's looking like another run-around day. Whatever happens, I'm going to harvest green beans first thing. I'm hoping I'll have enough to make some Dilled Green Beans, but that won't happen today. Also, I'm hoping I can get Chicken Buffet ready for binding over the weekend. Lots to do, so I'll get going now. Happy Thursday!
