Wednesday — woo hoo. The work week is nearing to an end. Knitting progress to show:
A couple of inches to go on the back and then I can do the front sections and the sleeves. Steady progress is being made here.
I bought a new bead book last week:
I love this book. I checked it out from the library and liked it so much that I bought my own copy. I have lots of beads, but lack skill and creativity. This book has some great basic items and good instructions. I have the items to make a great pair of earrings and a bracelet so far. I see more jewelry making in my future.
I went to the clearance sale at Bath/Body Works this evening after work. Bought a bagful of items. Some to put away as gifts and some for the girls now. I am getting a box ready to send to the fashionista, so I will put a couple of shower gels and body sprays in it.
Soldier Daughter is coming down on Friday for her birthday weekend. We are going to eat sushi and then go to the local music theater to see A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, the first show of the season. There are five shows this summer — every other Friday. Saturday my mother is going with us to the new Barnes and Noble. And then I think Soldier Daughter and I will go see Prince Caspian.
The weather people are saying we could have major tornadic activity in our area tomorrow. For days the media has been saying that the conditions tomorrow will be exactly the same as they were on this day back in 1974 when 22 people were killed by tornadoes. Interesting. I don’t remember the 1974 tornadoes — but I was 19 and self-absorbed…. So it will be interesting to see what occurs tomorrow.
