Valentines Love

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)

Hi Sadie
I had fun at the Potluck too! Nice to just have an evening to relax. And it's ALWAYS fun to tease Reg.
Sorry you're not feeling well and that "the barfs" have found their way into your home.
You are one mighty busy woman with all those hobbies!
