Hm. That weekend seemed about 3 hours long. Sigh.
But it was a good one, nonetheless. First of all, it was the weekend. Saturday when I woke up, I didn't really feel that great - sniffles, headache, joint aches, you get the picture. So after I took Hamlet for his walk, I went back to bed for about 2 hours, which actually helped. Then once I took my shower I felt even better. I don't know if that indicated that a cold was on the way, or it it was just being tired, but fortunately it didn't seem to stick around the whole weekend.
So Saturday consisted of a lot of just doing small things in between taking lots of breaks. I finished a book I'd started on Friday (it was a quick, cozy mystery, so it went pretty quickly), watched a couple of knitting podcasts, and worked for a little bit on my Neverender sweater. (Which is what most of you know as the Weekender pattern by Andrea Mowry. I think I'll like the finished piece, but even before I broke my wrist, it seemed to take FOREVER to knit. Anyway.) The Tim had to work, so I just enjoyed an unexpected day to myself.
Sunday, I decided (for the second week in a row) that it would be Scrappy Sunday. This is apparently a thing others know about, but I only became aware of it after watching one of the episodes of the Crazy Sock Lady. She mentioned that on Sundays, she tries to work only on scrappy projects, so they get some regular attention. I decided that was a really good idea, and I was going to give it a try. So last Sunday I managed a square on my Cozy Squares of Memory Blanket (it's the one on the top right in the photo below). Then yesterday, I completed the square shown in progress in the photo below, plus one more.
I enjoy this idea, since prior to this, I'd only added a square or two after I'd finished a project. This way I can visit it more often, and feel like I've accomplished something, even if it's just a couple of squares.
Other than that, I tried a recipe that was a sort of fake spanakopita, and it was a) very easy, and b) really, really good! So that will definitely stay in the group of things we have regularly. It's always nice to find a new thing to fix for dinner that doesn't take hours to assemble. Then we watched some shows we'd recorded, and waited for the snowstorm which was supposed to be HUGE but at least in the city, just meant dampness and wet streets this a.m. I know that they got a lot of actual snow in the burbs and other outer areas, but it was a bust for us.
So even though the weekend seemed to go by too quickly, it was a good one, and I got to do some knitting. I'll take it. :-)
