Unexpected bonus stitching today

I was pretty pleased too!

Our building lost power somehow right at the end of lunch. I was stitching for a few minutes, right at the end of my break, and the lights went out.

And stayed out.

Apparently, a crane hit a power line. And the power company was none too quick to repond

So I stitched. It wasn't like I could do anything else. I stitched by the light of the emergency lights. It wasn't too bad. I could have sat outside, but it's a little warm and sunny today, and I'm fair-skinned, and so, it seemed like a better idea to stitch. And my cub has the beginnings of a leg now. And I am almost all the way across the lioness' body. Yay! They told us that, if it didn't come back on by 3, we could go home. BONUS! I was planning to take a nap. Or walking by the creek.

It came back on at 2:45.

Bummer. But, all in all not bad. An hour and 45 minutes of blissful stitching.

Sometimes when things like that happen it is a special little blessing for us stitchers!

It was like you got paid to stitch! Great benefits at your company.

It was a construction crane. They are doing a lot of renovations around here.

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
