And then the taxes reared their ugly head again! Yesterday, we both got notices that the State was checking to see if we were who we said we were on our taxes! So I had to spend a ridiculous time on hold waiting for a live person (if you can call government employees "live persons") so I could respond to two letters saying they were checking our identity security for our state tax returns (their web site records don't match our copies of submitted returns and therefore would not enter us into the system to take the "quiz" online).
Then, to really ruin my Friday, I opened up my laptop, only to find that Firefox had, somehow, been closed, losing ALL my windows (and therefore all my regularly visited web sites) which meant I had to reconstruct them from memory. Given my memory (after all, I AM a senior citizen of three score and ten plus years and my memory isn't what it used to be for details like that!), both of these functions did not do my mood any good.
And it distracted me from my primary purpose this morning, which is to report in on stitchery progress. Lo!, there was progress! I kept to my goal and stitched two days each on ongoing projects and have pictures to prove it!
First of all is the March Crazy Quilt Journal/Bead Journal Project piece, which I assembled on Friday and stitched on Wednesday night!
Then there was "Save the Stitches" where "Block 11" was completed!
And finally, there is the Roll Your Own mandala piece, where the outline for "Marcia" (Part 1 of "Spawn" was completed and locations of the outlines for "Jan" and for "Cindy" were identified and the outlines were started...
I think I'll keep up the nights nights each project and see how far it takes me. Here's hoping this next week is a lot less frustrating!
