Thank God for weekends!

Last week was a packed week! I received a surprise call at school on Tuesday to see if we could accept a big hardware delivery on Thursday. It took quite a bit of work, but we made it. By Friday, I was exhausted and ready for the weekend.

I went in to school yesterday morning, but I was home by noon. So I was free to relax and do what I wanted, which was to sit in front of the TV and not move for a few hours. That may not sound exciting to the average person, but to someone who saw very little relaxation for a week, it was just the ticket!

I also knitted a bit, something that I hadn’t felt like doing much over the past week.

This morning, Little Grump and I got up and went to breakfast at the Corner Bakery. (It was great!) Then we went to see “The Three Musketeers”. (That was wonderful too!) Then we went to Pinkberry’s so that Little Grump could try their peanut butter and jelly yogurt.

It was such a joy to have the day with Little Grump. It was even more of a joy to see the way our relationship is changing. She talked about ideas that she has for art projects. We talked about how today’s fashions for men would be greatly improved by leather pants, awesome leather boots, and an occasional feathered cap. We lamented that quite a few kids will think that will actually believe that there were airships in “The Three Musketeers”.

We’ve always had a good relationship, but this was just so nice!

Then we came home. I knitted for a while more.

I also cleaned a little, which was badly needed. In the process, I found a bag of gummy bears that must have been on the end table for a very long time. Because they were well past their shelf life, I got to play and take pictures of them.

You needed more color, right?

    Loving how they echo the colors in your current knitting project. And now I am thinking of a song I used to sing to my kids: “There were ten in the bed and the little one said, ‘it’s crowded, roll over!’ So they all rolled over and one fell out, there were nine in the bed and the little one said, …”

    You’re welcome.

    I really must click through Ravelry more often, because I didn’t realize you were a blogger! So glad to have found your website.

    I’ve missed seeing you at The Knitting Fairy on Sundays. I seem to make it every other week and I’m not sure if you’re there on the weeks I’m not.

    Hope to see you again soon,
