Three day weekend, with a Friday list   6 comments

“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!

Laundry

Grocery shopping

PO

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!

Longest weekend and no real plans!   16 comments

This is my favorite weekend of the year. Although I don’t love the end result of rolling the clocks back, I do love the long Sunday!

We have no real plans this weekend, and due to the power still being out in the area, no Whorls and Purls today.  That makes me sad but means I will get some other chores done. 

On the agenda:

Laundry, of course. 

Make jelly with all the thawed berries. And maybe a cranberry duff because I have loads of cranberries thawed now, too and don’t need more cranberry sauce.

Bring in some of the three tons of pellets and bio bricks that are in the driveway.

Dye some bits of yarn different colors for knitting ornaments.

Knit some ornaments.

Clean the bathrooms

Mop the kitchen floor (AFTER I make the jelly!)
That seems enough to do for one weekend, even of it is a long one!

I already have the blackberries dripping for jelly, and some red yarn in the dyepot.  And A and her sister are off to Belfast to go the “big” grocery store to replenish the freezer and fridge. That gives me a quiet hour or two to relax and putter at my own speed. 😉

I think it will be a good weekend!

I haven’t seen you in a while! How have you been?

Me? Oh, I have been busy. Mostly doing boring things. You know, working, cooking, dishes. I have found time to kick out lots of hats, but other fiber fun has been slow going. As in three weekends, still plying the same singles. Haven’t had time to unpin the shawl I blocked last week. 

The caregiving is changing but still an ever-present thing in our lives. All three of us are working to make the best of it and can’t wait for it to end. There had been talk of L going home this weekend. A and L were both really counting on that, but it isn’t happening. There is a PT appointment Monday that will give us a better clue about things. A and L are planning the big move for Tuesday. I am not holding out hope for that, but am resigned to the November 8 cast removal date. Which will not stop me from measuring L’s interior doorways when I go get her mail today. I have a feeling the wheelchair won’t go through them. That means she has to get strong on the crutches or wait until the cast comes off. Hope I am wrong here…

I did have two unusual things happen this week.

The not so good one was that two mice moved into my car heating system and then died. That was smelly!! And meant I am was cold for two days until I could get it fixed. 

The reason it took two days is the the other thing. I was able to attend a writing workshop through work that was held in western Maine. The leaders were Stephanie Land, a freelance writer, and Greg Kaufmann, editor at Talkpoverty.org.  They were amazing! The format was pretty laid back, but we each got to have them review our writing we did there, and I heard some great pieces being read. I came away more inspired to do the writing I have to do at work than I have been in a long time.

Of course I got back to work to find a kazillion emails and mundane tasks to deal with. Oh well.
I am off this morning to get the truck serviced, pick up mail, measure doorways, and be back in time for whorls and purls this afternoon. So I had better get moving!
