Sorry...this is not a reference to my bust, but to the tire on my car. Friday, on my way to Ben's 4 year check up, I was driving along the main road that runs past my street and heading East....and about 1/2 mile along, I see a black thing in the road. At first, it looks like a garbage bag, but as I drove closer, I realized it was a piece of spikey black plastic (which later turned out to be someone's license plate holder...with plate still attatched). I wasn't able to drive around it...a car was coming the other way, so I was forced to drive over it or drive into a tree. I picked the black thing.
Unfortunately, I got an immediate flat tire and I was barely able to drive to the side of the road. We don't have any car road service at the moment (i know...dumb), so I called Ian at work and he was able to come and help me change it (since I've never done it before myself) since it was his lunch hour. It was freezing cold and wet out, so it wasn't at all fun for Ian. But, he was awesome and fixed it quickly. We ended up going out to lunch, too, and that was fun.
The funny thing is that this is the second flat tire I've gotten in the past month or two...ON THE SAME ROAD!!!! It's crazy!
When I got home, I noticed how pretty the ice looked on the branches of the lilac tree and had to take a pic...isn't it cool?
Here is the pic of the trees in front of our house during the ice storm when they were folded over onto themselves in view of my living room window:
Now, between the ice storm, my two flat tires, my HUGE banking mistake (which I chose to atone for with a few unspeakable, passionate acts toward my husband) and then our boiler breaking this morning/last night...so our house was FREEZING until noon....I don't know if our luck is finally up for changing. I hope so. At least Ben and I had the wood stove to huddle by...since I was told NOT to leave the house if the boiler guys were coming at some unknown time to do some fixin'. I think it's time for some MAJOR good stuff to happen, don't you?
And, how can good stuff pass us by when we have this adorable bunny face in residence???
You cute, Little Cocoa!
Happy Knitting and wish me luck on finishing the One Planet Yarn and Fiber third pattern! I'm almost done...and I can't wait to show off pics!!!
BTW, if you send me an Odeo message (link at right in blue cloud) by Friday night, I will put you in a drawing for a goodie bag of yarn, a new measuring tape (a pretty one!) and candy! Click and record...NOW! (thanks!)
