So hubby and I went out Friday night for our typical date (which I love, not complaining at all)--
Dinner at Montanas, Movie ("Taken" with Liam Neeson--really good), Coffee at Starbucks (Espresso Truffle--never tried it before--YUM), and home.
We also went to a potluck with Church people at a friends' home--it was fun and the food was great.
I decided to have an impromptu sale in my Etsy shop--posted it on Plurk and made some awesome sales.
LOVE to all of you who bought things!
We had a nice weekend of some sitting around, some putting things together (new bed!), cooking (I made dinner for our small group this week--lasagnas, salads, cakes and all the fixings), and hanging out with friends--Great weekend.
Monday is the new Holiday: Family Day, in Canada. (Not all of Canada, I just realized as I posted that link)
Hubby took the day off and we just hung out. He read a book, I read magazines, we drank coffee--the kids played happily.
I went to our local LYS in the afternoon as I was invited by a friend to attend the 4-H club class, where they were learning to crochet Amigurumi sheep.
It was fun!
I have crocheted once before--made a hat for Janna.....but ended up helping the "lefties" figure things out.
I sat last night with my pattern and hook and finished the sheep. (I have to put him together today). I made several false starts (I can't yet "see" my crochet stitches to know where I am in the pattern) but made it through the pattern while watching 24 and Heroes.
I have a confession.
I have not knit in a week. I don't' know what is wrong with me. Last week while hubby was working in the evenings, I would put a movie on and try to work on my FLS. I kept making mistakes (don't watch action movies, or movies with subtitles while doing a lace stitch pattern)--and having to rip back the same 6 rows.
After that, I think I just didn't feel like it
(I'm on Day 7 of the headache that wont' go away, and the mysterious cold symptoms that don't get worse or better--the muscle/bone aches, sore throat, sneezing, sinus headache--thing)
So, I feel better today--Little man has "the barfs" (as my nephew likes to say)--so I think it will be a quiet day (Princess is at school)
Sweater mojo--here I come
(Really, it's silly to finish a sweater when it's too warm to wear it--so I need to get it done NOW)
