I'm getting the itch again to break out the yarn in serious fashion. I started looking at yarns on eBay yesterday and almost purchased some. I was only stopped by the email from our bank loan officer attempting to finalize our home remodel loan. So...this weekend is going to be some serious stash-busting. I still have that alpaca/angora yarn I got locally. And I have some silk yarn I got with a gift certificate from my secret pal during the last round (I think it was SP7). It's a real pretty deep red color. I think it might turn itself into a shawl of some sort.
Of course, all this crocheting or knitting will have to wait until I get all the breakables in my home packed up...and get the second floor cleaned out for demolition day. It's going to be weird taking down the crib...but that's a post for another day (most likely after the emotional breakdown I'm going to have. I mean, I've GOT to share all the ugly details, right?).
So I'm going to be turbo cleaning woman. I just hope I don't pass out in this heat. Have you noticed that it's hot? No...not hot....HOT.
And let's see...weekend plans are pretty full this weekend...
Secret shop for lunch.
Visit JoAnn's (hey...I've got a 40% off coupon or two I can still use!).
Weed the flower gardens.
BBQ with my family and maybe cool off in our little pool.
Visit my friend Mary and her family. (please, please, please say a prayer for me that I don't fall apart when I meet her new baby boy cause that would really suck and make us all uncomfortable, I'm sure)
Weed the veggie garden.
Aside from the two potential breakdowns, I think it's a pretty good plan for a weekend. But I REALLY want to crochet. I know I'll get some done while Steve drives me all the places we're going to go. He loves to drive and I love to crochet...so it's perfect bliss. Well...not perfect...but close.
Now if I could just find some time to spend with my sewing machine...
Hey, a girl can dream, can't she?
