Tuesday that was a Monday

I know the calendar says Tuesday but it sure felt like a Monday, especially at work.  Busy, busy, busy.  There's a lot of tidying up going on around the office -- making sure everyone has updated their contact lists for their jobs, moving files around, all sorts of things, preparing to lose our jobs.  Ugh.

I think I'll be safe until fall, at least that's the hint I received from my manager, without her even realizing she had given it up.

Yesterday was Monday, but it felt like a Sunday, since I had the day off of work.  I chose a new fix-it task -- applying plastic window covers to my craft room and bedroom windows.  The craft room window is next to my computer desk and the bedroom window is over my bed.  Both windows are pretty drafty but maybe I just notice it more because I spend so much time near them.

Covering the windows was not a tough task at all, unless you count putting the balky blinds back up where they belong.  Naughty, naughty blinds.  The only tools required were a pair of scissors, a hair dryer, and a step ladder. 

The windows were covered quickly and while I'm not 100% happy with the intended draft reduction, it is a bit better.  Now I just have to figure out how to take the two sided tape off when spring arrives in 4 months!

A big 'thank you' is going out tonight to Harriet for buying my first ticket for our raffle quilt, see Saturday's blog post for the fabulous Cheddar & Red Four Block quilt.  Come on everyone -- you know you want to win it too!

I'm sure when more see that beautiful quilt, tickets will go flying out the door, as they say. Hmmm, maybe I shouldn't let others know. Won't that increase my odds of winning???

Now, now Harriet. It IS a fundraiser after all.... but you're right, fewer tickets sold mean increased odds of winning.
