Days 10 & 11 SSS plans were derailed by my sudden trip to my parent’s and a lack of casual comfort clothes. The good news is that I have discovered a definite need in my self-stitched wardrobe. The great news is that my dad is well and he is in line for the less invasive surgery. Done with robots! He’s actually a little excited (?).
Here’s a photo of another fabric purchase so I at least have something to show you.
It’s a stretchy knit. Don’t you love the turquoise?
I was supposed to fly home on Day 11. Of course, it was the 10th anniversary of the September 11th attacks on the World Trade Center in New York. I was not in the least nervous as I’m not a nervous flier to begin with and I am the least superstitious person you’d ever meet. But I did feel such sadness for the families of the victims. Do they appreciate their loved ones deaths being publicly noted, or, do they wish their grief was just their own and not adopted by so many? I also remembered how Canadian cities took in those whose planes were diverted that day. Many actually taking strangers into their homes in Halifax and St. John’s. True Maritime Hospitality.
I didn’t fly out since I missed my flight. I have never missed a flight. I openly mocked people who miss flights. I’m chalking it up to a high stress situation and faulty GPS.
Day 12 I flew home. I was in my airplane uniform; jeans, cami and cozy cardigan for the morning. I changed into my red and black elastic-waist skirt and White Stripes t-shirt for the afternoon. I was just hanging out at home and getting unpacked.
Thank you all for your kind words and thoughts in this time. It’s really the waiting that gets to you. In the meantime, do you know the signs of a heart attack or stroke? Signs are different for women so do yourself and loved ones a favour and read up!
