It is only 9:30 pm and I am ready to hit my pillow. I don't know why I am so tired. Of course, Monday is laundry day, however that shouldn't have worn me out.

The wind is blowing outside. A rainstorm is headed our way. There should be some rain later tonight. It was real cloudy all day although it wasn't really that cold. We should have rain for most of the week.

I am real disappointed because I can not get my mini sewing machine to work right. Regardless of what I do, the tension is just not right on it. I watched a couple of tutorials on the machine today and did all that was demonstrated and it still doesn't work. What's really frustrating is that I do know how to sew and I shouldn't be having so much trouble getting this mini one to work right. So I suppose I might have gotten a machine that has something mechanical wrong with it. I asked Gerry to package it back up for me and I am going to return it to Hancock's. Hopefully I don't have a problem with doing that. I am just going to have to clean off the little table I have for my full size Singer machine and put it up so I can use it. I finished the card I had prepared to do the stitching on and will post it on my card blog tomorrow. I stamped and colored another image and will finish that up tomorrow and get it up on the blog too.

I'm headed to bed in a few minutes. Hopefully the wind won't keep me awake.


  1. Talk about blowing wind! It is just gusting here too. And it's chilly! I actually love it. Too bad about your sewing machine. Hope you don't have problems returning it. It's 9:00 p.m. Hawaii time as I'm reading this, and I'm a bit tired myself. We were busy at work today. Maybe I'll hit the sack early myself.

  2. We didn't get any rain last night and this morning it has drizzled a little. The sun is actually out. I think I should go get dressed and get to Hancock's in case it does really rain. These storms are so crazy. A lot of times they don't even reach us here in Sacramento. We are about 100 miles inland from the coast.
