After our nice weather days we woke and found ourselves sitting in a cloud. Before long it began to snow—which is OK this year, we need some moisture in a bad way! Snow didn’t accumulate, it was too warm and by lunch time the snow/rain had stopped.
Mom and Chuck showed up just before lunch—their job over in Gardiner, MT didn’t work out. The owner’s promises weren’t panning out and a portion of the hours promised Chuck were going to someone else. So, they decided to go home to Arkansas—it is probably for the best. The rest of the family will be glad to see them, especially Mom’s granddaughter, Niki!
Michael started removing parts from the longarm sewing machine this morning and just before lunch he headed down to the post office to retrieve the new part, YEA! He repacked the gear box while we had the machine upside downand we re-timed it. The process was much easier this time—we had re-timed it once before when replacing the hopping foot. Got it all back together, loaded a practice piece and it sews beautifully—no more skipped stitches!! My husband is a genius!
Look what Santa, aka the UPS man, brought me today:new cookware, stainless steel. We’ve read so much bad stuff about “clad” cookware and decided to change out our clad cookware for some stainless steel from Costco.
The sun is shining as I write this but with a nasty wind blowing. Michael and I are off to the high school annual pops concert while Mom and Chuck hold down the fort and babysit Ms Emmi. Seems the concert would probably end way past their bedtime! Probably past mine too!!
