Well I certainly didn’t mean to go MIA on you all…life seriously just got the better of me for a moment.
First off we had end of the month. I’ll spare you the details, but it was ugly and I ended up working late the end of the week and was there to the dismay of the folks that wanted to close until 7pm. Well, when you’re on a deadline and you have work to do… I don’t leave till the work is done.
Secondly Monsieur Purl got me a very nice surprise gift of a day at the spa. I had the best facial of my life yesterday. This woman is genius. If I don’t get carded the next time I’m out, I’ll be surprised. I’ve been buffed, coiffed, sanded, and massaged all back into place. Plus the scale said I was down to 135. I’m hoping it was accurate… still would like to get down further – my dream weight is 125. I’d be happy with 130 at my age and build stature.
Finally today, after a good sleep in, Monsieur Purl and I worked on the house a bit. We couldn’t take it any more as the dust bunnies seemed to be set to riot. I feel much better that it’s again in a livable state.
I’ve been so busy that I’ve wanted to get mittens/fingerless mitts on the needles – these will be gifts for my Mom and I haven’t been able to get one started yet. I’m planning on a few sets of plain vanilla ones and a nice fancy pair. I also have been looking for a suitable pattern for my latest Sock That Rock kit. I’ve decided not to do the club next year. It was a fun to do once thing, but I’m good now. Thanks. I do have to decided what to buy with my 10% coupon. Can’t be letting that go to waste now can we?
Plus – my Bee Shawl is just waiting and my spinning has been delayed. I have to get back up to speed quick. I’m behind my schedule already.
