Today I discovered it is not a good idea to leave your DH waiting for you in the car on a hot day with the A/C and radio on but the engine off while you just pop into a yarn store for twenty minutes. When he went to start up there was nothing - the battery was dead. There ensued much silent cursing - I assume, because although there were no actual words said he didn't look best pleased. He decided to jump start it - one advantage of a stick shift/manual transmission car - and luckily a very kind cyclist stopped to help me push (I have no clue what needs to be done when to actually get the car to start this way so it had to be me pushing - I really should learn in case it happens to me when I am on my own) and we got it going pretty quickly. The people of Sugarhouse are very kind - it was a quiet street but two people stopped and asked if we needed help - Thank you very much in deed kind strangers!
It probably didn't help that last night Sam called for help because his car had died in the middle of the road (We don't talk about when he last changed the oil - or the mysterious patch of oil that has recently appeared under where he parks his car in the garage) and Gary had gone out to the rescue and had had the hazard lights on with the engine off for quite some time. Sam had to get the tow truck in the end and we won't know the diagnosis or prognosis for his car until tomorrow.
It hasn't been all bad this weekend - although not much knitting has been done. There is good news. Sam proposed officially to Sunnie yesterday and presented her with the beautiful ring that her talented Mom, who also made Lucy and Sean's rings and my anniversary bracelet, made. I must get some pictures of it. Sunnie said "yes", which is kind of lucky because arrangements are already underway for the wedding on September 21st. They have been together for ages - since high school - so we are very pleased for them.
