Ready, Set, Go!

Ok, so it's Thursday and I'm SO READY for the long weekend. We're not going anywhere, just staying home...just the way I like it. Although in July we're going to go away for a week to New Mexico and I AM looking forward to that vacation.

I expect(hope)to knit most of the weekend, some on my cardigan KAL, and some on a pair of socks, and some on the Swallowtail Shawl. We'll see how that all goes. I'm almost finished with the sleeves for the cardigan. It's looking like it'll be a really great sweater.

I also need to start transfering all of our videos to DVD's. I just get so emotional whenever I try to start that project, but I haven't tried in quite some time so maybe it's time to try again. We'll see. I love seeing Corrina's face and hearing her voice, but I start to cry and can't stop. I love and miss you so much, RinaBean!

Anyway, those are my Memorial Day plans. It will be nice to have the extra day off.

Bum Around

That's exactly what I did this whole weekend. I relaxed, knitted, computed...and it was nice and quiet. Scott, the kittie's, and I really enjoyed it. I worked on my KAL cardigan, and swatched and cast on for a the "Swallowtail Lace Shawl". I also lined and finished the knitting bag for my sister. I need to get it into the mail by Thursday or Friday.

Time goes by quickly, doesn't it? My sister will be 58 on the 13th. My other sister will be 70, and I'll be 48...unbelievable. My RinaBean would have been 22 this year...I miss her soooooo much. Life goes on...whether we're ready for it or not.

Well back to work.
