Friday list

This morning I have to take the car in to be serviced, in Bangor, so I will definitely be knitting. I also started a new book last night, a “whodunit” by Tess Gerritsen, Life Support, so I will bring that along too, in case it takes forever.

Normally, I would take advantage of being in “big city” to do a little shopping, but A and I are practicing some austerity this month, as we want to get a new pellet stove before winter, and the property taxes are due in September. If we behave ourselves, it is all do-able, but it does mean no wandering the craft and yarn stores in town. Bummer. Luckily I have a bit of recently improved stash to work with, right?

o after the car, it’s home to do a few chores and possibly some yard work, if things have dried out enough to work with. This weekend, I need to make three birthday cards for August, and I want to make a few batches of cookies to give away with them, so I’ll be busy with that over the next few days. Just not sure what will happen on Friday, and what will happen on Saturday. I’ll let you know how it comes out!

  1. Sounds like a busy day for you. I personally would rather read a book and save some money instead of going shopping for the sake of shopping. Good for you.
    Hope you have a pleasant weekend. 🙂

    1. lol, yes, I normally don’t like shopping – but wandering the aisles at the craft store is 50% inspiration, 50% shopping. It’s just that I get really inspired. lol I came straight home this time, so lots of money saved.

  2. I always find carrying my knitting with me is a comfort thing. The looks and the questions I get from the non-knitting public are always entertaining. The ones I always love are the questions about the “medical mask” I’m making when they see a toe up sock at the beginning of its creation. Usually the question is asked from someone sitting across the room.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
