Wanna know the truth? I started out the day with a bit of dread. Why? Because today's agenda began with a trip to the local base to have my military dependent identification card renewed. As a retired Marine, Hubby's identification card is issued for life. For me, I have to get a new card issued every four years and I just never look forward to it.
Because in the past this one thing can take two, three or more hours, we left with fully charged Kindles - ready for the wait. Usually Hubby will remind me of a recruiting poster that was popular at the time he joined the Marine Corps. Imagine our complete surprise and subsequent happiness at being in/id'd/out in under 30 minutes - including a new card for Hubby that does not show a social security number and a sticker for our truck! The clerks were friendly, knowledgeable and made eye contact!
The best part was not that we were able to take a reminiscing drive around the base or stop for breakfast before Hubby needed to get to work, but that the young people and their families now serving their country are being treated with dignity and respect - their time is valuable and so are they.
Now I have a whole unplanned afternoon to fill up. Back in June, I started a new project that got put away while I prepped for quilt camp and there it has stayed
until today. I added a few more blocks to the pile. It won't be long and I'll have all the blocks ready to start putting the top together.
I also got the bindings sewn on two quilts.
All ready for the hand stitching. I have a date with the Quilt Pals tomorrow evening - guess what I'll be working on?
