No, not out on the town, at a movie or having dinner with friends – my favorite Saturday night is bad weather outside, college football or basketball on tv, sewing at the machine and drinking beer! I lead a simple uncomplicated life, huh?
Because I was worried about our storm warning for this morning, I didn’t sleep well and got up at 5 and by 8 I figured the ladies brunch at church was a Go. I grabbed my purse and set off for town. When I looked for my ticket, I couldn’t find it in my purse – what? You mean I left it on the counter at home? Oops, my phone must be there with my ticket because I did t have it.
Many people didn’t come because of the awful weather that had not actually started when I arrived at church. Breakfast, talking with friends, a program and the little girls sang 3 songs which I played for and it was sleeting when the brunch was over so we all hurried for home.
So with no camera, there are no pictures to show you. Ugh. It was a slow trip home on roads with a buildup of slush and trucks that wanted to go faster than I wanted to go. I hurried to the house where I expected to see my phone and ticket on the counter. NO PHONE OR TICKET! You’ve got to be kidding. Life was easier when I knew the phone was hooked on the wall in the kitchen.
I searched the house, the sidewalk, my car, Rick called my number repeatedly but no phone and I couldn’t call anybody because I didn’t know their number even if I used Rick’s phone to call. I stewed and worried and decided I couldn’t relax until I drove back to church to look for it.
I walked right to the coat rack where I laid my purse while I hung up my coat – no phone. But I reached clear to the back against the wall and yes, there was my phone and my ticket to the brunch! Obviously it slid out of the front pocket of my purse and since I thought I had left it at home, I didn’t even search for it. Oh, my heart was in my throat!
So no pictures of the brunch, weather will worsen tonight and cold temps will freeze the rain and slush into ice and then we’ll get snow on top. I’m quite sure we’ll have church in the morning but it might be a slow trip to town.
What a stupid post! Is it any wonder I’m happily drinking beer, sewing and watching football? Reed and Kathy and I sewed until 10 pm last night – very fun! Back to the game. Surely I can find something fun to talk about tomorrow. Don’t give up on me!
