Caution to the wind or in the wind?

I had to stand on a chair to take this!
Since a picture is worth 1,000 words you can see that I have finished 8 colors and have 4 colors left to go.  I had a lot of time to sew today. (And write on Yelp.  Yes, I do spend a lot of time on the computer.  No, I never use extra time to exercise more.  What's your point?)

Part of the reason I had a lot of time to sew is because we decided to postpone our play tickets and dinner reservations to next Wednesday.  WGN was predicting huge waves on Lake Shore Drive, gusty winds and lots of rain.  Our tickets were for the Lookingglass theatre which is a block off LSD and we remember that they closed it during Snowmageddon last February.  To err on the side of caution, we decided not to be downtown during unusually bad Chicago weather; we will wait until next week and just hope for regularly bad Chicago weather. 

I try to think ahead and be cautious when I sew as well.  Case in point, making this quilt.  I am using black thread and what drives me wild is to run out of bobbins while I am sewing.  I filled 5 bobbins before I began the squares and I have used up half of them.  You may be thinking that I am 3/4's through with the blocks then I am in fine shape.  Au contraire, mon amie, I will also have to stitch all the blocks together and will probably run out with one block left to go.  Before that happens, I will make more bobbins just to be on the safe side.  But not now, I have been cautious enough for one day.

I am going to go knit and watch Revenge when it comes on.  Have you watched it?  Oh, I love it for many reasons but one of them is because she is not prudent and cautious.  At all.  Ahh, guilty pleasures, how reckless!
