For the 2nd day in a row, the temperature was 22 degrees BELOW zero when I had to go out to work. The windchill was 38 degrees BELOW zero. That is COLD! I have lived here in Minnesota all of my life and I never remember such cold weather. However, it is always very cold on Martin Luther King weekend, as I have been going on a stitching retreat this weekend for many years.
This year is no different, except being more low-key. I am going to my BFF MamaJoan's for the weekend to stitch, stitch and stitch some more. If were lucky, CathyB might drop by for the evening to stitch awhile. It is so nice to have great stitching friends close enough to get together. I'm sure I will have updates to share as the weekend progresses.
On a completely different note, a very strange thing was in my mail today. Last fall, on September 15 to be exact, I mailed my HoE Halloween Exchange to Nic in the UK. After waiting almost 2 months, she never received it. I quickly put another one together and sent it to her which she received within a week. Well that exchange that was MIA came back to me today. Can you believe that? There was a sticker on it from the Royal Mail that said "never called for", which means, the addressee never came to pick it up? I'm very confused. I barely understand the US Mail system let along international mail. I am taking this with me on my weekend to share with Cathy and Joan. It is very strange.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, I know I will!
