I started my weekend resting and knitting. I ended it going out to lunch (the second time) and chatting away the afternoon. I enjoyed the heck out of it, but very little knitting got done. I’m still ending the yoke on the February Lady Sweater. So, the knitting part is a bit frustrating. I’ll get over it, but I keep thinking I’ll have more time to knit and I don’t. I am not complaining about being included and cared about. It’s just that I have unrealistic expectations. I also need to adjust to the changes in my life.
Although the week will be short, it will be very very busy. I have nothing much to say and I’m pre-occupied. You know how the holidays tend to take over your life. Mine haven’t, yet, but it will most definitely happen. I can feel it coming. I’ll give you a fer-instance. Mom and I did Thanksgiving for many many years. I mostly did the work and she was my foreman. Well, when she died, I stated to my family that I did not want any part of a “family” Thanksgiving. My brother was very upset, but the rest of the family took it much better. We finally negotiated a dinner at a restaurant and then BB and his family could go to my BSIL’s younger brother’s family’s Thanksgiving. Does that make sense? No? Don’t worry about it. Well, I couldn’t find a decent place to have a Thanksgiving dinner. I did find a cafeteria, but BB said there was no f”ing way he was going to a cafeteria on Thanksgiving, so we are having a brunch style breakfast at my house. Mimosas and a breakfast casserole provided by my BSIL. There will be anywhere from 4 to 6 or 7. I am not stressed or unhappy. I am loved, and for that I am very very grateful.
Because I am busy and perennially disorganized, I am not gonna promise another post before Friday. If I were more organized (and, that will not happen in my remaining years) I would post every day, but you can just forget that! Now, if you will excuse me, I am going to dance to the living room and knit and finish my drink. Have a wonderful Tuesday. Here’s my soundtrack for the day.
Sly and the Family Stone!!! Have a great Tuesday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
