My husband took a couple of days off from work and so did I! Since packing the house is just about done and my brain is fried, I hopped in the car and headed north to Idaho. I arrived in Twin Falls Friday evening.
Why Twin Falls? Because I wanted to visit two quilt stores in this area (more about them on another post), and this was the closest place to those stores where hotels weren’t sold out (Really? I thought Chris Isaak’s show was far away from here.)
Although this break is supposed to give me a breather from the boys in my life, all I can do is think of them. I did “manage” to have a fun day shopping for my favorite item – FABRIC – and talking to random quilters. As I am finally in my hotel room with my feet up, the room phone rings:
“Hi, this is Patrick, are you in your room?” [Who IS Patrick, and if I answered the room phone, where in the world am I? Anyway…]
“Yes, I am in my room. Why?”
“I have something for you.”
“What is it?”
“It is a surprise. I am coming to your room.” [!!!]
I run to the peep hole hoping that this Patrick person is in a hotel uniform… and he is. The young (and prankester) man is holding a vase of flowers.
“This is from me! Nah, just kidding. It was at the front desk for you. Enjoy your evening.”
My husband has no idea how scared and happy I was to receive his flowers! How sweet… He just won 1,000 points with me (plus the points he got for each dollar I spent on fabric today!!!) 🙂
