Five Favorites for This Friday

Well, I am happy to see the weekend, let me tell you.  I woke up this morning with a terrible headache and a sore throat, neither of which are completely gone, but are also not as bad as they were.  I knew if I could power through the work day, I'd be set.  And I did!

This week was a busy one, and even though it wasn't all great, there were definite high points, some listed below.

1 & 2.  Monday was The Tim's birthday (#1), and both of us took the day off (#2).  It was nice to have an extra day, and to not have any specific plans.  We just hung out, watched movies, drank wine, and went out to dinner.  Not bad.

3.  Related to that, I finished the hat I had been knitting for him, even though I'd figured I wouldn't!  (More details in a later post.)

4.  Pip slept next to me under the covers twice this week.  He is a sweetheart, but when he sleeps right next to you, he wakes up a couple of times, and gives you a rub with his face.  It might bother/freak out some people, but I think it is adorable and love that he does it.

5.  Last night, my yarn shop co-worker Andrea and I went to teach beginning knitting to a women's studies group at a local university.  We had a group of eight very enthusiastic (and some what nervous) women, and at the end of the two hours, all of them had mastered the knit stitch at a minimum.  Only a couple of them had ever even tried knitting before, so they were mostly brand new.  They did so well, and it was so much fun!  Apparently there was even a waiting list!  So who knows, maybe we'll be asked back sometime.

This weekend I'm hoping to play catch-up with some projects around the house and otherwise, and am actually really glad that I don't have any specific commitments.  What about you?  Any good things worth noting for the week, and/or exciting plans?

Whatever the weekend may or may not hold, I hope you have a great one!

I love hearing that your Beginning Knitting class had a waiting list and that the ladies who took it this time around had success by the end of the evening. Kudos!

I'm thinking there just might be a long bike ride this weekend. We are supposed to get some cooler weather on Sunday.

YOur class sounds like so much fun, just think 8 new knitters are on the loose, dreaming of future projects. Hope you are feeling much, much better.

Bridget- Beginning knitters are so inspirational. I hope you get to teach alot more.

Valentino rubs his face on my face because he sleeps right beside me. I love purring- it puts me right to sleep.

We went to the outlet mall Friday and did some early Holiday shopping. We were most successful and it was so fun. Usually Im not to happy about shopping, it made me happy to be happy about it!
