I am not nuts about the ring tone of the new phone, but I don't see a way to change it. I need to record a message for the answering machine, but that means I need to read the manual. I got as far as setting the time and date.
It took ten days for the tv and dvd player to reach the repair center. No word yet if they can be repaired. That process is moving more slowly than anticipated. It's not that we watch that much tv, but we do enjoy watching dvds and streaming Netflix.
These are small inconveniences compared to what could have happened during that storm...or what could happen at any time really. Eight days ago a house two miles down our road burned beyond repair. The news report said the fire started in the basement and they may never know why. Thankfully the family was camping for the weekend. The house was less than two years old.
Millie the cat has good days and not so good days. Some days she eats and other days she is not hungry. She just jumped in my lap. It's amazing she still likes me, for all the medication I've dosed her with. I get down on the floor and pet her. I'm worried about her.
My elderly friend in town has been in the hospital since Sunday. She is not feeling up to par, so they are working to get her back on track. Each day the doctor has said she might be discharged. I hope she's able to come home tomorrow.
Too many things I can't do anything about. So I sew. Before I left for Vermont I spent an entire day laying out the squares I had constructed for the Harmony Quilt. I decided I wanted a solid color to border each nine block, each one different and with no pattern in how they are arranged. I'm still looking for harmony in the chaos ~
