I thought I was pretty clear last week when I said I wanted MORE weekends.   2 comments

Not fewer.  So I am bummed that I have to work on Saturday this week.  Of course, as the “work” is going to two farmers markets with a coworker and her baby, not too many people will feel sorry for me, I guess. But it means I have to get up, showered, and dressed and be somewhere at a specific time. NOT what I like to do on a weekend.

There, now I will stop complaining.  Here is what is good about it – besides getting to go to two farmers markets and one of them with my favorite goat cheese vendor – A said “as long as you will be in Ellsworth, why don’t we go to EBS and order the counter tops for the office and the craft room?” Rock and roll!  That is great, as it has been years in the waiting.

What else is going on around here?

Well, let’s see… we are starting a “Biggest Loser” style competition Friday morning.  A’s office workers arranged it, and we are on opposite teams. That will be fun.  To make sure that we had something to lose – ha ha ha – we went out for supper tonight – A had fried shrimp, I had a crab meat roll, and we shared french fries and a raspberry shake.  Now we are both stuffed, and probably won’t eat for days.  Well, hours maybe.

Party last weekend was good – for one thing, we cleaned the whole house – never a waste!  I think everyone enjoyed themselves, certainly the nieces and nephew appeared to have fun.  They all tried lobster – the twins picked out their own and ate it.  E got help picking it out, and didn’t eat it. Her helpers were OK with that.  She did play with the legs and eyeballs, though.  Something about 5 almost 6 that likes that kind of thing.  Instead, she ate chips and watermelon, before anyone realized she had not eaten any of her lobster.

She also loved the cats – played for hours with Zumba, and hunted “the shy one” down and patted her as well.  The shy one did not like it, but couldn’t seem to figure out how to escape.  E was very gentle and respectful of them, letting them sniff her hand first.  Apparently she has been swiped at by other cats, and has learned some respect, but not lost the fascination.

The twins were pleasantly chatty, sharing their getting ready for college tales, and both admitting to being a bit nervous about it, but looking forward to it.  I don’t think N will have trouble, and I think that B will settle in eventually, but he will be homesick.  And as he is farther away, he won’t be able to get home as easily.  N could get home on a train or bus in a couple of hours, but she won’t want to, I am sure!

So, as you can see, a slow boring week here.

I plug away at the newest lace scarf, it is definitely going faster and easier than the shawl did, I think the shawl might have been too ambitious for a first project, but I got through it.  Now I am working on this one, designing the next one.  Tried a pony tail hat, didn’t like how it came out, but I will make some changes and try again this weekend. There has to be a way.
