It’s in the mid 20’s here today – I let the goats out and a few of the chickens – feels so good outside! It’s going to change tomorrow morning however. Did some extra barn chores while it felt good outside. Then I tried to cancel my Sirius radio in my van. Have you ever tried to deal with those people?
I put less than 10,000 miles on my van per year – you all know I don’t go anywhere but Mason City and even though I love the radio stations, $241/year is just too much. And since my credit card was hacked on Valentine’s Day, I don’t want anybody to have the number if they’re going to “automatically” bill me – just too risky!
So now I’m off to Mason City to talk to the Verizon people about a charge that keeps appearing on our bill for something we do not use! Since my terrible experience yesterday, I might as well continue in the heavy negotiation mode – arguing as it’s really called.
Put the Rectangle Wrangle quilt together, added 2 little borders and now I’ll piece the back.
It’s subtle but OK – I want to work on something else! How about a rug? Here are all of my brushed cotton strips left over from my demonstration of twining. Since I’m in the mood to use things up, I guess these strips are next.
Remember when we were talking about the Goat Gazette? Here are the two holders that keep each issue of 20 pages laminated and punched and in order.
Here is the first one – around 1990? Can’t remember exactly.
And the last few issues never got put in – there’s no room anyway!
I will look around and see if we have any left – I know Rick was using them as fire starters in the fireplace – I maybe should stop him from burning them up in case somebody wants a copy. Haha! You know – in the vein of using things up!
Here’s a leaf that fell off one of my succulents and since I didn’t see it, baby plants already started growing!
That’s my chat this morning – lots calmer than yesterday! Wish me luck dealing with Verizon!
