A Breaky Kind of Day

It’s snowing out. We’re under a storm watch. Christmas is just days away and I’ve taken a few days off this week so I can catch up on some things. And to relax, to be honest.

One of the first things I did this morning, after driving Ethan to school was to do the dishes. John’s away for a couple of hours and I can take my time. I can be careful and do it right.

I dropped a mug. My favourite mug. The mug I was given for Mother’s Day. From my daughter and grandchildren.

The one that says “Inspire”. They gave it to me because they consider me an inspiration. It didn’t fall far; I was washing it and it slipped. The handle hit another mug in the sink and fell off. I’m sad.

Then, while I was finishing up with the pots and pans, the cabinet to my left opened and a couple of Pyrex dishes slid out, onto our tile floor, startling me!

Someone… not saying who… just does not know how to properly stack bowls and Pyrex, apparently. And, oh my, the noise when those dishes hit the ceramic floor! Yikes!

I think it’s time to sit down with a relaxing cup of tea and some knitting. Hopefully, nothing else will break.

    Sorry your favourite mug got broken 😦 Maybe you will get another for Christmas? Sounds like knitting is a better choice for today. I don’t think you can break that.

    Sorry your mug broke but if put it on your wish list perhaps there will be a replacement Pyrex breaking onto tile is a big pain. 😦 Hope you didn’t get cut with any shards cleaning that up. My Mom used to have a Frisian saying; loosely translated, “if nothing ever breaks you’d never get anything new.” I was given that bit of wisdom on more than one occasion.

    Enjoy your tea and your knitting!

    Hope your few days break will result in no more breakages!
