When I was at the University I scheduled Fridays off once I hit Winter Quarter of my Sophomore year. I was so productive having three day weekends and a four day work week. It gave me plenty of time to relax on the weekends and to get caught up on any work I had to do. Sometimes I truly miss that schedule. Now I love my Thursdays because I have Knit night which gets me into weekend mode and allows me to relax and hopefully make some good progress on my projects as well. Tonight’s group expanded back toward our regular size which was nice. I took my Vivian along and worked on that. Really now that the main pattern is rather well established it’s a much easier knit. I suppose if I hadn’t put it in time out for a month I could be much closer to finished with it but that time was well served on other projects. As it stands now I attached my fourth ball of yarn tonight. Which means I am nearing 20% completed on this sweater. Not too shabby since I didn’t truly pick this project back up until last weekend.
In other news, I got a call from the Blue Jackets today. We’ve sold 67 tickets thus far. It’s not quite as many as last year but then last year the economic crisis hadn’t crippled the Midwest. We may have sold 4 more tickets tonight at knit night. So that would put us up to about 70 tickets vs last year’s 113. I am feeling much better about requesting supplies for 100 goody bags. It looks like we may be closer to giving them all away than I had originally thought. Positive thinking does work! Speaking of goody bags, I will be collecting the last of the donations this weekend and there will be a small entourage at my home on Sunday working the assembly line. Sometimes it’s a good thing to live with a process engineer. “Honey can you set up an assembly line for me right quick?”
In the computer world. It has not yet been thrown out the window. I am not sure if that’s a good sign or whether that has more to do with the fact that it is in the basement. The Boy removed that bit of RAM tonight and everything seems to be running ok without crashing. Well everything that is except for the Internet. Sigh. I have no idea why it can’t find the Internet and I think I screwed something up during setup. Tomorrow night I think we will wipe the hard drive and try to install it again. The excitement never ends…
Have a great weekend everyone!
