Hello all - I hope you had a good weekend. Mine was nice - a good combination of being productive and not doing anything. Then in the middle of the night last night, I woke up, and the cold that had been seeming to be on its way for a week or so, had apparently decided to arrive. When I got up this morning, I felt so awful, I took a sick day from work. I've spent a lot of the day sleeping, and between that and the cold meds, I'm feeling a bit more with it, so I thought I'd write a post, though I don't really have much to report.
Over the last week, I have gotten a fair amount of knitting done, which has been nice. I had put everything else aside while concentrating on the baby sweater, so I felt a bit behind on things. Fortunately, none of my other knitting projects have any outside deadlines, so it's not an issue that they were briefly ignored. I am a little bit bummed, since I realized after paying some bills that I won't be able to join Vera and Dee this coming weekend at the Allentown Fiber Festival. Yes, I *could* go, but I couldn't buy anything. And I know I don't have to, but I like to get at least some little thing to remember the event. So I'll just keep working with what I have, and hope to go next year. The costs so far for my dental implant have really taken a huge chunk out of our finances. The periodontist doesn't take dental insurance, and though they are nice enough to send in the paperwork for you, you still have to cough up payment when you're there.
Last night I tried a recipe for dinner that sounded like it would be really good, but it was a bust. Not inedible, but definitely not worth making the effort. I guess they can't all be winners, right?
Not much else is new otherwise. Supposedly the weather is supposed to become more spring-like this week around here, so that will be a nice change. I'm just glad that our daffodils survived after blooming and then getting snowed on! They managed to hang in there and stay happy, which I guess is something we should all try to take to heart. :-)
We'll see what else this week brings - I hope you have one that treats you well!
