People become really quite remarkable when they start thinking that they can do things. When they believe in themselves they have the first secret of success. ~ Norman Vincent Peale

Tree meets house ...

I didn't get any sewing done this weekend because we are all still sick. Lovely, eh? So, the most interesting thing that happened this weekend:

We were in the living room on the couch. Me and Emily were eating a PB&J and Tony was on the phone with a friend. All of a sudden, we heard a loud rumble, a crash, then saw branches fly down in front of our living room window. This can’t be good. So, we ran outside to see the tree sticking up over the roof from the back yard. Niiiiiice. So, what happened is when the tree hit the roof, a bunch of branches broke off and flew into the front yard. I knew it was pretty windy out, but had no idea it was windy enough to knock down a tree. Sheesh. Naturally, I am trying not to have too much anxiety over it.

To get my mind off of it, I decided to make dinner. So, I made some tortellini soup and croissants. Well, the oven just wouldn’t pre-heat. I looked in there and the element was broken in half. I have no idea how an element inside the oven breaks like that, but it did. At that point, I put in The Nightmare Before Christmas and decided to call it quits on the evening. The soup was good.
