I wish I could say that I was held hostage in my sewing room until I finished a quilt, but that didn't happen. Yesterday was one crazy day. It was beautiful outside with snow falling and I think the temperature was in the 20's. So as usual I took Rosie for a walk and I over dressed... I would rather be too warm than cold on our outings. So I put my usual layers of clothing on: long underwear (top and bottom), turtleneck top and corduroy pants, wool sweater over the turtleneck, bib overalls, a long down filled winter coat, ski mask with a wool hat over it, two pairs of gloves and a wool scarf. And of course, I always,wear wool socks and warm boots. It takes me about ten to fifteen minutes to bundle up for our long walk, which is usually 2 to 4 miles.
Well, we had a very enjoyable walk. Yep, I overdid it with my outdoor attire and I was warm while walking, but we had a nice brisk walk and I was a little sweaty when we got home. Then the day quickly went downhill. I could not get my coat unzipped. The zipper was stuck. I tugged and tugged to no avail. I couldn't even wiggle out of the coat so I could get my snow overalls off. I started sweating bullets. The Mister wasn't home and I couldn't call him because I could not reach my cell phone in the pocket of my pants. We don't have a landline, just cell phones. I wasn't sure when he was going to be home as he was running some errands and he knew I had my day planned. I began to feel claustrophobic in my layers of clothing and I began to perspire even more. I thought about taking the scissors and cutting my way out of the coat, but it cost well over two hundred bucks and I just love the coat. I kept asking myself, "How many adults get stuck in a coat?" This is something a 5-year-old does, not someone in their fifties. Dang, I'm truly dysfunctional.
About three hours later, he arrives home and helps me out of my fricken coat. I was soaked through to my clothes. So today I weigh two pounds less, thank you winter coat! Pass the Twizzlers and Oreo cookies, please. I can have extras today. Yummy!
Have a great day!
