Cancel my class will you.

Today I was to take a class with Carolyn Disher. Carolyn is the lady that instructs us in bookbinding. I'm so hooked. I've now done several different designs and incorporated these into my collection of recipes. Unfortunately the class was canceled. I guess July is not a month people want to make a small woven book. I thought o.k. that's another recipe book on the shelf. So I guess I will have to iron. For our 25th Wedding Anniversary, my sisters bought me a wonderful iron. I've been ironing uniform shirts for 25 years before, of course my husband retired. No shirts to iron you think. No such luck. Now I iron more than uniforms, with three men in the house, and everyone wanting to wear 100% cotton, I have more ironing than I would like. So instead of having a creative moment I'll do my duty and iron. Or maybe I'll do an inservice and teach them to iron their own shirts. But then they would need to learn to use a hanger, wouldn't that be an achievement.

Perhaps I'll get distracted.

Sorry Irene, I need to clarify! Your sisters wanted to purchase a nice hanging light for your formal eating area and you insisted on the iron. Mind you it is a great iron and in turn, I bought myself one too! You also prefer household items rather than nice jewellery for your birthdays. You obviously are not like me - give me gold and diamonds and the rest is part of the household budget. Have a great Sunday ironing! If you visited me you could rest and I would barbeque. AMS

I apologize for the misspelling of Cancell, should read cancel. I plan on hiring and editor for my novel so this will not be an issue. But feel free to correct me.
