This weekend was busy busy, but I feel like nothing got accomplished. It was like knitting a mile of stockinette – you know you are making progress, but it is hard to see.
Saturday we got an early start, because we had things to do and we had to be in Brewer by noon time for A’s sister’s birthday lunch. I managed to get the bathroom clean, my hair cut, some of the tree bits out of the pool before we headed out.
We came home afterwards, and it wasn’t until we drove in the driveway that we realized we forgot to go to the grocery store. Sigh. Did some household chores before retiring to the knitting couch – working on some baby hats for sale.
Today I felt ambitious, and while A did a special project for work, I cut up some old pallets and loaded the car with a lot of junk and trash for the dump, then went there and to the grocery store, which had way too many people for a beautiful Sunday! I’ll have to remember that. 🙂 A went off for her weekly golf game, and I worked some more on the pool and in the yard, but everything looks the same. Then I quit because it was hot, and went back to knitting 🙂
It is amazing to me that it was hot. It seems we are back into normal weather. I notice the flowers are working really hard to get on track – lilacs are starting to bud, and might hit their normal bloom date of Memorial Day weekend. Lupine are sending up flower heads, as well, they are usually blooming early in June. Bleeding heart is blooming, trees are suddenly quite green. Everything is growing like mad, and so next weekend, I will need to weed whack, which I do instead of mowing this mess. 🙂 And finish getting the pool ready because I think swimming will be happening soon.
I did block Reyna, and she is packed up, ready to ship out tomorrow. She is smaller than I would like, but I used the yarn they sent, so I hope they are pleased with it. Once blocked, the shawl is 46 inches across, 21 inches tall at peak. Big enough to wear as a scarf or kerchief, certainly.
Here’s a picture of something you won’t see often on this blog –
My boss brought me in a bag of rhubarb last week, so I made a pie on Friday night. Pie is not something I excel at, or do often, but I LOVE rhubarb pie, so I managed to bake this. 🙂 It seems I come from a cake family, and A from a cookie family, so this was a rare treat.
I think I will go have a slice now before I brush my teeth.
Hope you all had a good, productive and fun weekend!
