Business first. Here's another experimental quilt square. Oops, what's that? Oh I must have accidentally used the salvage. Waste not; want not, right.
Okay, now I'm still laughing about this. I had a meeting this morning, and overslept. So I'm running around half awake thinking of all I need to do before I can leave. I remember I'll have to take the dog out. We had another snowfall yesterday and it was frigid cold, so I'll have to put his boots on. He absolutely thinks he's being tortured and involuntarily walks backwards in them. My guess is he's trying to walk out of them. So that will take longer. Then I realize Tim is out of town and I don't think I can get down our driveway. I call Jennifer and she agrees I probably shouldn't try it. She was on her way in and says she was going to try to figure out how to use the snowblower. I'm like, "Whaaaat? Do I have the wrong number?" Only our immediate family knows how funny this is.
So sure enough, she gets here and pulls out the snowblower. We stood and stared at it, then circled around it, poking and prodding. She was able to get it started, but it was so hard to move that I got behind her and pushed her. We were laughing so hard. Then figured out we were doing nothing more than shoveling with a heavy machine, and I wondered why snow wasn't blowing from the snowblower. Played some more, then cheered and laughed as she got it working. I then realized Tim or Joe would not believe this. I ran and got the camera. I risked my life to get a close-up shot to prove it was really Jennifer under that hood. Needless to say, I didn't make it to my meeting, but had an unforgettable morning.
