It all began when I prepared to make coffee this morning. I added the beans to my grinder, then promptly dropped the lid and broke it. Thankfully I have another grinder, but I use it for grinding my spices, like cinnamon, cardamon, anise, etc. So of course, I tried to fix the problem by placing the beans in the grinder, and promptly got the lid on crooked. Here I was without coffee, facing a grinder with a lid that was stuck, and feeling my caffeine addiction was spiraling out of control.
I finally pried the lid off the grinder and made a pot of coffee. But that was just the first of my problems.
I headed to the craft room where I wanted to make a few glue stencils. Fueled with coffee and an image I had seen on Yvonne's blog recently where several circles were shown behind a cupid, I was ready to make one. Since I had never used this glue gun I got well over a year ago at the thrift store, I decided to make the circle, along with a few others. Incidentally, the cost was for both the glue gun and all those glue sticks.
and the glue would come out in blobs, but not circles. At least I had coffee!
I realized this was not the tool I should be using for this task, as shown from the back side, so I headed to my basement where I had a glue gun that WOULD be the right tool for the job.
However, when I plugged the glue gun in, I also turned on a heater and promptly blew a breaker, which meant I had no lights or any electricity in the basement studio. I tried to reset the breaker, but I wasn't strong enough, so I gave up and decided to work on something in my craft room. Guess what!! The craft room (which is located directly above the studio on the main floor in the front of the house) and the basement studio are on the same circuit!
I'm now in my office, where I'm going to remove the photos from my camera, then watch TV, drink coffee, and forget this day ever happened. I called my friend Scott who will be over after he gets off work on Thursday. I'm sure I'll laugh about this in about a year, but right now, it was a day that I would LOVE to rewind.
Thanks for laughing with or at me, and of course, thanks for visiting me. At least the blown breaker only affected the craft room and the studio, but not the rest of the house.
