A new fireplace arrived today for the Texas Rosebud Cottage. Can't wait
to put it inside the dollhouse (still not built) but I can have fun
tweaking until it is.
Earlier today, before the mini fireplace arrived, I was busy with paper work
settling my Mom's estate. I needed an insurance policy which is in the locked
file cabinet in the garage. I grabbed the key to the file cabinet and went out into
the breezeway that separates the house from the garage. I realized that I
forgot to bring the key to the garage and turned to go back inside the house.
Then I discovered that the door into the house was locked. Drats! So I
went around to the backyard and figured I would get in one of the porch
doors. Both doors locked! I walked over to the French doors that enter
into Mom's room. I knew that door was locked, but one can hope...
It was about 30 degrees outside. No coat, no cell phone, no way to get into
the house. I am in my jammies and bathrobe (wouldn't you know) and the only
close neighbor is next to us. Their little dog Toby was out in the yard, but the
nanny's car was gone and I knew she must be running errands before she
picked up Dodson from morning preschool.
Then I see the mailman starting to approach our house. Ran around front
and caught him just in time and was able to use his cell phone to call
David. Fortunately Victoria is a small town and David only works about
ten minutes away, so he was able to come home and rescue me.
So I was back on track with my mission to call the insurance agency.
Found the policy. Found their phone number. Dialed and waited for them
to answer. I was greeted with a message that they were closed today because
of the bad storm in their area.
Oh well, I could just make myself a cup of tea and sit by the fire, but after
the day I have been having I might just want something a bit stronger ;-)
I am feeling a bit better and am starting some major tweaking projects so
there will be more later. Until then please visit:
Bentley was so cute while I was stuck outside the house. He kept
looking at me as if to say "just open the door mom".
Big Texas Hugs,
