a beautiful weekend out to spend in ...

it turned out to be quite the quiet and peaceful weekend for me. the roommate was out of town and i basically had the run of the place for two days and two nights. no cable or internet friday or saturday tho. as a result, right after work friday i went to the Sound Garden and bought the complete four seasons of NCIS. i am addicted to this show. or maybe it's mark harmon i'm all about, not sure. anyway, i spent friday ff-ing thru the first season, to refresh my memory. i also sewed my last sock/glove animal in my set of four. my last few hires were interviewed by one of my fave consultants at work. he's always been flex with my last minute requests to do phone screens and to show my appreciation, i made four animals for his four kids. i actually completed three before i went on vacation over a month ago but the last one just came slow for me. i had a number of blah weeks, as well as the crochet and cooking projects. but i was determined to complete the last one, and so i did. my stitchmanship still isn't that great but i've graduated to thicker thread.

on saturday, with the exceptions of watching jab and his team Castaways play in the pool league and then heading off to my soccer game, i basically spent it at home in my living room, crocheting and being a bum. it was glorious. one would think my reputation for being a bum gave me more weekends like this but alas, they don't come often enough for me.

today, i woke up early because the comcast folks were coming in to fix my cable and internet. i signed up for the 7-10am slot, but naturally, they showed up right at 10. God bless them. it was supposed to be a leisurely day ouside, perhaps a walk and picnic in the park with jab but poor dear, he's sick as a dog. i guess i could've picked up the phone and called up some of the broads and set up a brunch or something. but the pull of being a bum for one more day just was too strong. so i had two items on my list to do: watercolor cards and clean out the studio loft room. let's just say i completed just one. damnit. i'll get to the damn room soon! this week.

  1. I just got the package about 5 minutes ago! I love them! None of my kids are home at the moment, though, so no reaction to pass on to you, yet.

    Thank you thank you! I'll pass on a "thank you" from my kids, too (all 4), even though they haven't seen them, yet.

    Take care!

  2. Hi there... just wanted to say sorry that I invaded your space. I was wondering why you had zero comments on all of those posts in that blog I can no longer access. For what it's worth, I found lots of your musings thought-provoking. I was so happy (when I realized you weren't somebody I already knew and seemingly not a freak--but possibly well named and "angry") when you posted a comment on one of my posts out of the blue that I thought I would return the favor. As I see now that it was not equally received. I just wanted to apologize and let you know that I'm not a freak and won't be bothering you in the future.

  3. I love Missy Higgins! Thanks for your comment on my blog. Your watercoloring is awesome! Too bad that's a skill I absolutely do not possess.
