Couldn't sleep and was up on-line by 5:00 - spent two hours catching up on what I missed at work yesterday afternoon and now feel better prepared for Monday - but worth missing the Saturday morning sleep in? not sure....
Had so much fun with Katie and Sara last night. Sitting around the kitchen table - two laptops checking out blog-land, two r+h agendas, cross-stitching, alphabet stamps, art school catalogs, ipod (instead of tv). not much for regret, but I wish I'd taken a picture!
Find myself with no real plans for the day - so unusual - would like to get my closet cleaned out, switch out winter to spring decor and get to Harry's for fresh fruit and vegetables - the weather has taken a chilly turn and I'm thinking vegetable soup might be a good thing to make.
Found this link on the Yarn Harlot's blog for some cool knitting/NY things - maybe Katie can check out a few next week?
...and my responses to the latest list:
