… are below freezing cold. As I was fixing breakfast, I felt my slippers sticking to the floor; looking down, I saw why: there was a puddle of water right in front of the sink . That cold! For when the temp drops to 20s, the pipe under the kitchen sink drips water and eventually, the water overflows to the floor. Breakfast-fixin’ postponed while I mopped up water. Appealed to Alexa ~ to no avail … Note to Self: call in plumber; I’m sure there’s a wrap that can be affixed to take care of that little annoyance.
Yesterday, one member of our Thurs Stitchin’ group texted she was knitting Joey (kangeroo) pouches. ??? I replied…and she answered: Australian wildfires have left a lot of orphans…including kangaroos…so there is a worldwide call for knitted kangaroo pouch simulators. Another member shared there is also a world wide call for tree quilt blocks for (human) families who are homeless as a result of the fires.
There are still hours left in this national holiday of service and tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King. I am now off to my sewing studio to look for fabrics to make a tree quilt block or two.
P.S. The temperature is currently 33°F and the sun shines; perhaps I’ll fire up Inspector Gamache and we’ll go for a quick spin around the block before the sun sets.
