storm troubles

Well, last night a nice big strong hefty storm blew through The big country, as they say here in my city, and it left it's mark on my home by knocking down almost an entire side of my fence! I ended up calling into work today so I could find someone to help me fix it, which I was able to find someone and thankfully my fence has been "repaired", but when DH comes back fromt he Middle east we HAVE to get a new fence built. I was lucky my puppy didn't run away, as I let her out this morning to use the bathroom, and usually I do the same thing and get my coffee started before going back out and calling her in, well I was in the midst of starting the coffee when a lightbulb went off in my head "THE FENCE!" knowing that one swift swoosh of wind could blow it over, and the storm last night was horrendous, I ran outside to make sure the puppy didn't get out, and sure enough there was my fence laying on the ground and my puppy sitting there with a look on her face like "Wow! My backyard grew!" So, I got lucky she is a timid sort, or I know she would have bolted!

So, anyway, that is how my day started and I just sat around like a lazy sloth all day watching tv. finally around 7:30 I decided to get up and do something productive....reading blogs IS productive...right? =P I was such a lazy bum that I didn't even want to get off the couch long enough to come into the computer room to retrieve my stitching that I had left on the scanner from the last time I scanned a photo of it. so, there I sat. I could have been stitching, but no, I just SAT and watched tv show after show...until right about 7:30 I finally decided I was disgusted with myself for being such a slug and got up to do something, but now I am in the mood to stitch so I will probably make some dinner and go back in and sit infront of the tv and stitch. Yes, that is how I will finish up my day.

Lana- Sorry to hear about your fence but sure am glad you didn't lose your puppy and could get it fixed so quickly. Get lots of stitching done tonight, alright?
