Monday Morning

Hey chickens! I hope everyone reading this had a nice weekend, or if you're in the Northern Hemisphere, well, score! because it's only Sunday.

I had a fairly quiet weekend, which had been right at the top of my agenda marked Plans For The Weekend. I spent a lot of Saturday doing housework with the stereo set to LOUD, the big jobs like thoroughly cleaning the bathroom, which I must admit had been at the bottom of my agenda. Hey, neccessary evil right? And evil must be held at bay.

I caught up on some sweet blessed sleep, did heaps of laundry, packed up some clothes to give to charity. (In all honesty I'm never going to wear that party boy black lace shirt again, now matter how hard I wish to be twenty-something.) Not rivetting material for a blog post, but satisfying on a personal level.

Yesterday was gloriously bright, warm and sunny so I went off to knitting at The Courthouse Hotel with a pep in my step. The beer garden was packed, but I finally scored a nice large table. Ever seen that episode of Seinfeld where Elaine tries to keep a row of seats at the cinema? Growing increasingly frantic with every person she has to say "these seats are taken!" to? Well, pretty much. I always did kind of relate to Elaine the most on that show anyway.

So, after 45 minutes of that and not another knitter in sight I decided it was officially Not Happening, and went for a walk in the sun instead. About an hour later I ran into my old friend Brendan, who I've known for nearly 30 years now, and his partner Grant. A coffee, and then two beers, later and I headed home having rescued the afternoon. Nice. A bit of early evening tv and then into bed at 9.30 to read and have an early night.

Monday just always rolls around too soon.

Sorry to leave you alone on Sunday. Alas, I had to stay home and work. Not quite as pathetic as going into office and working, but a little tragic none the less...

I have vowed to be more organized so I can go next Sunday.

How is your sock?

Danke! How's your weekend going so far? What is it, Sunday night your time?

The Other Andrew said...

Aaargh, cross posting! :) Cecilia, that's fine. I knew Bex was busy, but it was such a lovely afternoon I thought some of the others might have shown. Sock #1 is almost finished! Looking GOOD I must say. A couple of centimeters left to go and I can bind off. I haven't been home to work on it much, I'll possible finish it tonight.

that all sounds lovely though.

The Other Andrew said...

Agreed! The catching up on sleep was a highlight! :)

Cecilia said...

I'm looking forward to seeing the sock! You know about the sock curse, right? You have to start the 2nd one as soon as the 1st one is off the needles or else you won't finish the pair. Or so I'm told!

The Other Andrew said...

Yeah, I have heard about Second Sock Syndrome. I will cast on immediately, I swear!

However, I have some really nice self striping yarn that I also want to try (Sirdar "Town & Country"). I'm considering casting that on and working a second pair at the same time, for variety. Would this be a bad idea do you think? Tempting fate with the Second Sock Syndrome?

I saw Rufus on Thursday. Oh. My. Gah! I'll have to give you the deets. Get your tickets now. Maybe I'll come down and catch him with you.

What else? Haircut and manicure on Saturday. Long run on Sunday. Shopping. Lawn mowing. AND it's Monday.

The Other Andrew said...

Yay for Rufus! Yay for Haircut Day! Boo for Monday!

Cecilia said...

I think Bex always has 2 pairs going at the same time, so perhaps there is a variant on the Second Sock Syndrome that can help you out! :)
