It all started when the cab driver picked us up. Within two minutes of being in the cab we knew he was "recovering" and had begun healing his relationship with his 15 year old daughter for whom he bought cigarettes (it's her mum buys the beer) and who was having a tattoo party for her Sweet 16. Awwww, sweet. About 15 minutes later I was ready to throw myself from the cab. He was weaving in and out of traffic at over 85 mph, jerking the car back on the road every once in a while, had no idea how to get to the airport from the 476 (hint, you'd have to never have driven before), kept crossing several lanes of traffic at once, and could not read the giant green highway signs (we weren't sure if he needed glasses or was illiterate). I asked him to slow down once and he did, but when the driving rain started, he did the only logical thing and sped up to 85 again. This time, the dude asked him to slow down.
It mostly rained all weekend. I didn't get out by the pool but I read two books and did lots of stitching (photos below). Finished LHN Dog House Sampler for Sissy. Made good progress on beading the Olympic Stitching project. I hope to finish all the beading by this weekend when we are in Maine so someone can bring it to Casual Cat for framing. At least that's the plan.
*And as Tropical Storm Fay bears down on Florida, I think we totally did the right thing. They are predicting that Orlando will not be spared. And I'd pretty much enjoyed all of the delights of the Hilton "North Orlando" by Sunday.
