Quiet weekend, busy week  
It was a nice, quiet weekend after several weeks on the go. Friday, I actually had to work since I had traded for a Monday off a few weeks ago but it was pretty quiet as many people were out for Good Friday. That evening, I stayed home, got caught up on reading, sewed, and stayed up entirely too late. Saturday, I slept in, alternately reading in bed and dozing until folks came over for a little crafting day. relativelylucid  knit, leleth_faery  darned socks, S worked on her research, and mightyjesse  and I warped my loom. Well, partially warped my loom. We got about 3/5 of the way through before our shoulders gave out. That sounds pathetic until you know that 3/5 of the way is still about 300 strings - each through the reed and a heddle. Ooof. When it hit dinnertime, mightyjesse , S, and I went to pester sirzig  at work and make him make us a pub-a-licious dinner. Once home again, I had yet another late night of sewing and miscellenous research, topped off by going to bed with my new copy of Queen Elizabeth's Wardrobe Unlock'd. Nummy. Sunday started much as Saturday did, with QEWU alternating with the Dublin Headcoverings book. I had a series of nice conversations with S, then my dad, then my mom, which alternately improved and exacerbated brain weasels. The rest of the day should have included yardwork but instead was filled with sewing and research.

The coming week will be busier, though. Monday is gardening with devikat , Tuesday is date night with mightyjesse , Wednesday is fighter practice, Thursday I have a hot date with gflower and may go to choir, and Friday, Saturday, Sunday I'll be in Montana, meeting my new nephew! Whew! 

Current Mood: busybusy
