The speech season is gradually winding up. We had a meet in Limon last weekend which, in addition to the snowstorm fun, also offered the joy of being on a Friday instead of Saturday. As such, I got actually play on Saturday instead of working. I went out to lunch and fabric shopping with Lisa and her daughter Malory before meeting up with Rachel for some fiber shopping at Recycled Lamb.
Thanks to their helpful staff, I came home with the following supplies:
And this project in mind:
And here’s an in-progress shot:
This week was the usual amount of January craziness, so I didn’t get a chance to do any more weaving until today. We had a meet in Roaring Fork which is about 3.5 hours away. Happily the weather cooperated both days, the group who came was on the smaller size, and I didn’t have any issues despite being there sans assistant coach. I got home a little after 11:00 PM Saturday night and promptly crashed into bed.
Sunday I woke up late for church with a splitting headache. With a couple of aspirin I made it to Sunday School and Relief Society, made lunch, and did some household chores before I fell sound asleep on the couch until I awoke to the sound of my home teachers knocking on my door. The saving grace of the whole weekend was having today off for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. I slept in, finally ridding myself of that headache, watched a movie, read a book, did some baking, and wove.
This week will be more crazy – the State speech meet is Friday and Saturday, so we’ll be cramming in extra practices for that in whatever free minutes I can scrounge up between classes and musical rehearsals. I’m really looking forward to only having the one after-school part-time job again.
