working on the weekend.

...still seems weird to me. not the teaching part. but the working in the shop, selling yarn, advising customers, fixing knitting part. after 27+ years in the corporate, monday through friday (where you need the weekends to catch up) world, I still haven't adjusted to "working on the weekend". so much so that I thought this song was about working on the weekend, not for it :-)

but at our shop we each take a turn (or two or three or four...fortunately, I have only one) to fill the saturday schedule. and today was mine for the month of june. I advertised with my students and friends that I'd be there today. love how much faster the time flies when I see friendly faces, especially around the yellow table knitting. and there was a table full all afternoon (sorry, no photos, but thanks, ladies!).

...it was a great day for the shop, and a long day for me.

until my sister texted about meeting up for a glass of wine after. yes, please! (btw, check out this great new pasta restaurant...dog friendly outdoor seating and a great wine list.  LOVE!)

and I got home and sara had grilled eggplant and pureed plums...waiting to become dinner (and holly had company outside her crate all day)

and we watched hgtv and I had time to bind off the 350+ stitches on vitamin gray.

not to say I want to make a habit out of working on saturdays, but when they end like this, they're pretty good!

  1. I used to have to work every other Saturday at the library back when I was assistant director. I got Friday off as a trade but I still hated working on the weekend. So I get it. Sounds like you ended the day so nicely, though.
