Three day weekend, with a Friday list

“Today is my Friday!” is what one of A’s former coworkers liked to say at the end of a short week. It always makes me laugh. And today IS my Friday, tomorrow is a holiday. I am so excited for this time to get our house cleaned and put back together, and to spend time with A and the cats.

SIL got a great report at the doctor yesterday. Cast is gone, she has a referral for PT, clearance to drive, and go to work next week. A got her moved back home and settled in yesterday afternoon. 

I put some of our living room furniture back where it belongs, since we don’t need wheel chair clearance. Allie Cat came out of seclusion and was very active. We all had a nice evening.

Today I have a relatively normal day so should get out before dark- yeah!

Here’s what I have planned for tomorrow:

Deep cleaning our bedroom (except for vacuuming, I leave that to the pros) and bathroom.

Change over my closet and get out the winter clothes. And I mean it this time. Been putting it off for weeks but now it is cold out!


Grocery shopping


A trip over to the Purple Fleece to pick up the fiber for the ornaments. I want to do that ahead of Saturday W and P so I can stuff a few and get a feel for how much is needed, then get more Saturday if I need to. I also want to get more of the white yarn so I can do more colors, lol. And a jar of a gold dye. I have yellow and should be able to mix gold but I can’t seem to get it how I picture it.

That actually should exhaust me completely so that I spend the evening knitting. 😂

Also this weekend I need to set up my display table, tag my things, make some cards to sell, and create my table signs for next Saturday’s craft fair. 

And I am going to make sure we run over to see SIL and return her trundle bed. Then I can work on getting the guest room back in order.

A busy weekend! Good thing it is a long one!

    1. Oh, I will! And truly I will enjoy getting the house put back together and clean. We haven’t done anything but the barest minimum for nearly two months and it shows.

  1. Good luck at the craft show! I used to love to do them. They don’t have any around here anymore. Great news about SIL. Dyeing a yarn gold is rather interesting. I’d be keen to know what you did and how it came out.

    1. lol well, what I did so far was mix a really bright yellow with a tiny bit of purple-ish pink – thinking it would come out a peachy gold. and now knowing or understanding what the chemicals were that made them that color. What I got was a pale gray-ish yellowish- green. It is pretty but not the gold I was looking for. So I will by a jar of dye that is meant to be gold, lol. and I am talking straw gold not 14K gold. 🙂 I think I have some metallic gold thread someplace that I could carry along if I want sparkly gold.

  2. Getting out before dark requires quite a knack! We saw a beautiful sunset last night at 5:pm!! So much dust in the air from the combines and farmer fields yielded a pretty sunset. Enjoy your moments of light after work!

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
