Where'd the Weekend Go?

I know, I sound like a broken record, don't I?

They fly by, and I feel as if I've not gotten 1/4 of the stuff done I either wanted or needed to do. Pffft!

But I managed to finish the vet's books, get some laundry done, and get to my knitting group this afternoon - everyone is all excited about NoSoKnit next Saturday! And Rae is up to her eyeballs in alligators (so is Tere) in getting it planned. I thought I was doing so well taking my Red Scarf Project scarf with me to knit on, but you know that corrigator isn't all that easy to knit and talk with.

That doesn't bode well for next weekend! I need something easy-peasy. Well, you know what that means, don't you?

Yup. Personal Sock Club September edition (okay, I'm late opening the bag - 20 days late, to be exact!). Austermann Step in color 48. And peeking out from below the yarn are my Knitpicks Options. I'll get these OTN, and no, they won't get done before the end of the month, but I've already finished 12 pairs this year, even if 2 pairs were from new yarn and another was from stash not giftwrapped and included in the PSC at the beginning. I'm not all that worried - there are 3 more bags, and depending on whether we hit Atlanta in November, I could still get them all done by New Year's Eve!

Ok. Maybe not. *wink*

I got asked about my "football" interests in a comment on Friday's post: I'm not really a football fan. I am a graduate of VT, so I have this in my front yard for some of the fall (it vies with my Halloween Black Cat flag for pride of place in October!):

Once upon a time, I was involved with someone who was a Steeler's fan. He's not really a part of my life anymore, but I got in the habit of cheering them on. I didn't see the game today, but was a bit sad to see the score. I know that a certain someone is pretty ticked tonight, too.

But then, I won't lose sleep over it, and he just might!

I hope your week goes nicely - I'll be back soon.

I know what you mean about weekends! And I keep saying the same thing about the weeks, too... I hope today is a bit more peaceful for you :)

That yarn is going to make pretty socks. Except for the orange shades, it reminds me of my first pair with Sassy Stripes. {{{HUGS}}}

You'll get them done.

I know! I want more longer weekend too.

I hope your hips are feeling better and I LOVE your new hairstyle.

I suppose if we had worse weekends they would seem to last longer.

Go Hokies!

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
