Last weekend was likely our last of the year at the lake. We've had some memorable winter visits over the years, even celebrating Christmas there a couple of times.
As fun as it is to get away, I am very much looking forward to a weekend at home. I have plenty of work/cleaning/organizing to do. And I'm sure Katie could use some help. The floors at her apartment (including a stinky process for carpet glue removal) will be done on Monday! She plans to be completely moved in by Thanksgiving and, even with a few days for airing out, I think she'll easily make that deadline!
I may or may not have a tiny new baby in my viewfinder at some point this weekend – very exciting – and it's been a while.
On Saturday afternoon, I'll be attending a special event sponsored by my LYS, Iris Fine Yarns. "Changing the World with Sticks and String: Knitting Activism Past, Present and Future" will be presented by Alison Gates, Associate Professor, Arts and Visual Design/Textiles Chair, Women's and Gender Studies, UW-Green Bay. There's a link to a PDF with more information on the Iris Special Events page (click on "Registration Required") — and, by the way, if you're local and think you might like to attend, registration for this free event is required (registration deadline was last Saturday, but I doubt they'd turn anyone away).
I'd sure like to cook something this weekend — the girls gave me a gigantic covered skillet for my birthday and I've yet to use it! I've wanted one for years, and even more with all the cooking I was doing recently (until VERY recently).
Well, I'll be back tomorrow — doin' this NaBloPoMo thing, you know!
