Mistaken identity

My laptop battery came in and I am very happy with it.  It was recognized by the device, came half charged, no special instructions required.  It is giving me 5 hours and from my research, the company stands behind its products.  Ordered from Amazon, SOLICE laptop battery for my Dell model.
 
Still sanding.  It only gets worse.  We're using 80 grit but should have tried 60 and just taken the wood down.  It's a real mess.  When Mark was working I had eight hours to do what I knew he would not agree with.  Now retirement is really screwing with me.  I have to wait until he's golfing and I only have a few hours.  He said we were finished with the sanding, I wasn't.  Today was finally warm, really warm, and I decided to throw on long pants to catch the dust, and fully zip a hoodie to cover my hair and upper.  Safety goggles, a face mask, completely covered in dark clothing with a hood.  Sweating like a maniac.  How the heck do you go inside to pee when you are covered in black powdery dust?  So I strip off the stuck-to-me clothes in the garage and make it in time.  I went back out and put the outfit on, donned my mask and glasses, covered my head with the hood and walked out of the garage.  I hear someone yelling "I'm calling the police!  I'm calling the police!"  My sister was in her car at the end of the driveway and thought I was a thief robbing the house.  Who else would be covered head to toe with a hood and face mask in 90 degrees?  But I assume she is having a heart related event and calling for help!  I run toward the car, she starts screaming.  Good grief.  Good thing I just went or I would have wet myself from laughing.
 
 
My brother found more of Pat's stitching accessories and we have a group of those ceramic buttons to get rid of along with all those brass findings for some cross stitch projects.  
 
 
 
 
 

 In the box were also bird buttons, shank style.  Mom would have loved these across her sweatshirt. 
 
Pat stitched a lot of Homespun Elegance that called for the charms, but why the heck did she have so many?  If anyone is missing a particular item, let me know, it may be in this bunch.
 
 
Enjoy the week!

OMG! I think I may have wet myself just reading about your adventure. I have also stripped out in the garage and often wondered how I'd handle it if someone caught me.

Now that's a funny story, but good thing your sister didn't have a heart attack as you ran towards her car!

Sooo funny, Marly! At first your blog post seemed to be getting a little dark and then came the bit about the clothing and hoodie! Don't drive yourself crazy, dear, we need you!
