Well, I had a pretty productive weekend. I managed to finish the blanket I’d been working on for the last six (or more) weeks. It’s for the niece of a friend of mine who lost her home to a flood in all the horrible storms we had this spring. (Haven’t heard word back yet if she’s received it or not. Hope she likes it, and I hope it gives her some semblance of ownership after her tragedy). Although I don’t think the blanket came out too badly, I don’t think I’m going to crochet this pattern again. It came out looking a lot like another blanket that I finished a few months ago, but this particular pattern was twice as hard to deal with. I’d rather expend my energy on something that has a little more visual and/or textural ompf to it.
This weekend, I also found a little black dress that looks amazing on me. And I found another ring to add to my collection (Moonstone! I love it!) Two things I’ve been needing/wanting for awhile now.
I had a mini vacation (my first real vacation since Spring Break ’10), and a massage. I turned twenty-four (Happy Birthday to me!) and to top it all off, I edited a resume and pre-interview questionnaire for a friend of mine. As much as I’d hate to see her move half way across the country, I’d love to see her in a job that doesn’t make her want to commit mass murder on a weekly (occasionally daily) basis. Not only does she need this job, she deserves it.
All in all, I had a great weekend. Now I just need to catch up on all the writing I didn’t get around to doing. That, and a massive load of laundry needs cleaning, the bathroom needs scrubbing, and I can’t remember the last time I vacuumed…
