New iPhone and Waiting for a Special Delivery of Yarn

Hello Friends,

Thanks for stopping by. We have a three day weekend, with Monday off in honor of Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday. So I have been preparing for a nice day off tomorrow filled with hooky fun. Unfortunately my order of yarn has not arrived yet. I am waiting for an order of Red Heart Boutique Sashay yarn to make some ruffle scarves. The box should arrive some time this week so I can try out my hand at making a ruffle scarf. The ladies I work with found the yarn before Christmas break and made some lovely scarves.

Yesterday I judged a science fair for middle and high school students in Fort Myers, FL. It is called the Thomas Alva Edison Science Fair. If you remember my posts over the summer (here and here), Thomas Edison and Henry Ford each had a winter estate in Fort Myers and had a great impact on the area's growth. The students had some impressive projects showing great promise for our next generation of scientists and inventors.

As I was on my way out the door to go to the science fair, I dropped my cell phone. My phone was old and a flip phone which is considered ancient for a someone who uses technology and has to keep up with technology as part of my job. The phone broke into two pieces and was not salvageable. Ordinarily I would be fine going for man hours without a phone, but yesterday I went through the day with a sense of panic. We have our current house on the market (up for sale) as I was worried I would miss a call from our realtor regarding a showing of the house to potential buyers. Luckily I did not miss any important calls and was able to go to my wireless provider and get a new phone. I got the iPhone 4s and it is WONDERFUL!

I waited as long as I could (obviously, it look a complete break of my phone for me to get one). I waiting so long to upgrade because I knew once I was connected to everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, I will forever be doing something, no more being idle.

It really is an amazing phone as I've been smitten with it for the last 24 hours.
Happy MLK Day!
xoxo Susan


  1. A new phone sounds like lots of fun. We got one for my son for Christmas and he is obsessed. I have an android, fun but not near as nice as yours. Happy day off!

  2. Hi Susan!

    Hope you had a good long weekend.
    Happy accident with your phone by the looks of things!
    That scarf looks pretty, hope you get a chance to make one!
