That’s what Rollie and Michael were to me this morning. I got up at 5:30am when Michael left, drank my coffee, read some blogs and started some spaghetti sauce. About the time I was going to get in the shower, the propane hot water heater ignited and my power surged and died—completely, no juice, nothing! The electric element in our hot water heater is dead, the new one is ordered but in the mean time we are using propane. We’ve been struggling with some strange electrical problem—the water heater ignites, power surges, microwave blinks, then everything goes back to normal. This morning it didn’t go back to normal
I flipped breakers, unplugged things—nothing I did restored power. About that time, Rollie drove up—I explained my dilemma to him out the kitchen window asking him to send my husband home a little early—I could deal with no power for the day—the quilting studio had power! Nope, Rollie called Michael and told him to come home—my knights in shining armor. Power is back on but Michael has some things to troubleshoot when he has his week off!
Gina and I spent the day quilting and sewing. I would sew for a while, frustration would set in and I would use the longarm for a while. One of these days I’m going to write a quilting/bag/gadget pattern and write it so people get it! Maybe pattern makers assume you know more than you do???
This afternoon late we were outside and noticed Rick had a new toy—a remote control helicopter. Emmi was outside at the time—the thing scared her to death, she retreated to the motorhome.
Rollie and Gina joined us for dinner tonight—spaghetti with homemade bread. Thomas, Ashley and Abigail stopped by for a few minutes—Abigail is a beautiful baby—her second birthday is approaching fast!
Michael is on the downhill side now, last week of work coming up.
