With a clean table and a full head, I started the day fairly motivated.
In fact, I started it right off in the craft room as opposed to my comfy chair in the living room (where I usually check e-mails and such first thing.)
After working for a few minutes to start on the next step to a project I started last night, I pulled out my "Porjects to work on" bin that contains a variety of items to be repaired, completed, etc.
On top was a necklace for my cousin. . .reminding me that I need to search out the right color of suede cord.
But next was this. . .experiment that I started many, many, MANY years ago.
After examining it and the other beads in the baggie,
I decided it just needed a "clasp" to be finished off. So, I added a button.
Viola = interesting fall colors bracelet.
Just as soon as I had that completed, before I could even get all the extra beads and buttons put away, Pat asked me to run out for some lunch. No problem, Chick-Fil-A sounded good.. . .
Alas, it was too good to be true.
As I started to pull out of the driveway, the car felt a little weird and I noticed that my tire was leaving an odd mark on the cement.
A FLAT TIRE!!
I was already scheduled to pick up the nieces this afternoon and Pat has to leave early also for a gig so we rallied and tried to come up with a solution. Hmmmmm...
We ended up putting as much air into the tire as we could and Pat followed me the mile up to Wal-Mart. I seriously didn't think the tire would make it. But, IT DID!! (as my heart beat and I prayed!)
Of course once there, I couldn't just sit there and wait. I had to wander over to the bead section.
THEN, I just sat there and took in the scenery.
I'm thankful that we discovered the flat when we did and got it remedied. But, I hate that my motivated day and my bin of projects fell to the wayside. Ah well. It's always something.

At least something got accomplished today. . .that's better than last week!
Oh no!! I had to laugh when I read your post - it's so true - it is always something! Especially on those days we feel really creative... but you did get some new beads out of it and that is ALWAYS good! I'm hoping I can salvage my week in the next 2 days... :-)ReplyDelete
Oh well, at least the tire was discovered before Pat left for his gig and Wal-Mart is always a good place to waste an hour or two in. Have fun with your nieces.ReplyDelete
Rebekah, I'd definitely prefer to laugh over it than cry over it! And yes, I did get some new beads out of it. Best of luck to you on a motivated and productive rest of the week!! :)ReplyDelete
Therese, YES!! I'm so happy that we lucked out and saw the tire at mid-day rather than later. That could have been a disaster. And, youngest niece and I had a good time playing pick-up sticks and doing a puzzle while the oldest was sick with a headache. Ah well. . .
