Winding down to the weekend

Yay — after taking last Friday and Monday off, and another 3 day weekend coming soon, I am a happy person! 

Last night I went to the library and got new books to read.  Currently on the nightstand are: The God of the Hive by Laurie R. King; Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger; Organic Manifesto by Maria Rodale; The Room and the Chair by Lorraine Adams; The weed that strings the hangman’s bag by C. Alan Bradley.

Tonight I am attending a Dress for Success Premier Party for SATC2.  Should be fun.  Fashion show, buffet, goodie bag and the movie.  I am going with two friends.  We got together Tuesday evening and made quesadillas and watched the first movie.  Had a great time.

Then tomorrow evening I am babysitting for young friends of mine.  They are going on the final friday art crawl to have a date night.  And I will be entertaining their 4 and 2 year old boys.  I am taking a couple of games with me that I play with my Little Buddy and I think I will take some popcorn.  Should be fun.

Saturday will be my weekly farm market and miscellaneous shopping and then relaxing on the glider with a good book! I don’t have much planned for the weekend and am really looking forward to just puttering around.  Playing my guitar, knitting, reading, cooking, making some jewelry, getting out on my bicycle, and walking the pug.

Some friends of mine kept the pug while I was in Eureka Springs.  She did very well over there because they have a 10 year old daughter who loves pugs, but I think she missed me.  When I pulled into their drive Sunday evening to pick her up, they had her out on her leash.  When I opened the car door and got out, she ran over and hopped right into the car!  Too funny.

I have nearly finished knitting a “vintage style” towel made with recycled cotton yarn.  Will post a pic of it over the weekend.  I need to do a button loop and sew a button on the green and brown cotton baby sweater — must get that done this weekend.  And then I plan to get out the Harvard Square Striped Cardigan that has been languishing in my knitting box — hmmmmm, I believe I started it two years ago.  Must. Finish. It.
