There was a faculty happy hour function Friday that I attended, but unfortunately, I wasn't able to stay very long, as a cool weather front coming in gave me a rather severe headache. I came home and had some coffee, medication, and spent most of the evening knitting quietly in my lovely yarn room, with Gracie nearby. Luckily, it eased quite a bit. Maybe I need to spend more time knitting quietly? I know Gracie enjoyed it. Here she is after climbing into an empty basket.
I'm working on a Playground Shawl, using two skeins of stash yarn, Frolicking Feet, and Fiber Company Canopy. It's an easy pattern, but I have had to start over a few times for one reason or another. No matter, I'm quite happy with it anyway.
I bought more mulch this week, in the hopes of doing some more yard work, but the weather might not cooperate this weekend. I want to extend the flower bed by my front porch to include some bulbs my parents gave me from their yard, an azalea my sister gave me, and a butterfly bush that I need to move, before I kill it by dragging the garden hose over it.
I spent today doing everything but gardening however. I took my mom to the Hermitage Museum, consignment store shopping, and lunch, to celebrate Mother's Day, since last weekend was my dad's birthday. Then I met a friend at the Norfolk Greek Fest for dinner, so all in all it was a lovely Saturday.
Now Gracie is ready to curl up and snooze.
