Don't Leave Home Without It

 Waiting is always hard.
Depending on what's going on,
even a few seconds can seem like an eternity.

I had to take the car into a tire repair place.
Have you been to one recently?
It's the happen' place.
There were 29 people waiting in the 
waiting area at 10 am on a Friday morning.

Even with the appointment that I made on line,
my wait was going to be about 1 1/2 hours.
Pity the poor folks who didn't make an appointment,
their wait time was about 3 hours.

I always have some handwork to grab and go.

 These funny pumpkins made me smile
even while I had to wait.
The good news was that 
I was out and back on the road
 in 1 hour and 20 minutes.

Until Next Time-


  1. Lucky you! And it is nice that you had a project that could make you smile in the midst of the wait.
    I've quit waiting at the dealership. They have a shuttle service that takes you where you need to be and picks you up when your car is done. The dealership is near DH's work, so when our cars need servicing, he drives whichever one is scheduled, takes it to the dealership and they drive him back to work and pick him up when it is done. I have a vehicle all day and he is only slightly interrupted in his day. Works for me!! : )

  2. I always try to have hand work or a book when I have to sit waiting on car repairs etc. Makes the time go much faster! Very sweet pumpkins for you to work on!

  3. Kyle I love the pumpkins - what great colors! I hate going to the anything-to-do-with-auto-repair places and usually beg my husband to do it. :) blessings, marlene

  4. I hate waiting! At least you got to sit and stitch those darling pumpkins!

  5. Those pumpkins are fabulous!
    Yes, I love to bring hand sewing to any appointment or stitching opportunity!
    Glad you enjoyed the time as much as possible.

  6. Adorable! Such a great stitchery project to take on the road.

  7. You never have to wait if you have hand work with you! This is really coming alive, your stitch work is lovely.
