Things to do on Labor Day

Things to do on Labor Day

Already accomplished this morning: move things to Steve’s new office and then a nice walk around the northside.

Lots of coal headed someplace…

Followed by these interesting possibilities:

Free Craftsy Day – all classes, all day, free viewing!

Pickle Tomatoes?

And, there will be knitting, of course!

I hope your day is filled with things you love!

Oh, Monday

Oh, Monday

This week I have a few things that I must finish that have been at the top of my procrastination list for some time. Sadly, there are plenty of things I procrastinate over but these things are especially procrastination worthy and I am not looking forward to them at all.

The weekend was highly productive but unseasonably cool! We got some inside Kon-Mari-ing done. And I have a good-sized pile of clothes to take to the re-sale shop. Today I will continue in Kon-Mari-Mode and clean out some knitting books. Then I will tackle the Procrastination List!

On a brighter note, I am almost done with this sweater! I might even have it done today, if I can wrap my head around the neckband finishing. We shall see how it goes.

I also made some good progress on Kavalier and Clay over the weekend and I should easily have this done soon. I must admit, they are wonderful companions even during the most mundane of tasks!

And with that, I am off to start my Monday! How was your weekend?

Eclipsing Monday

Eclipsing Monday

It was a fly by weekend here but lots got done. Unfortunately, the sweater was not one of the things on the “done” list! I am through the sleeve divide however, and the knitting is going a bit quicker now. With some quality knitting time, this should not be on my needles too much longer!

However, today my list has little room for knitting.

My list today includes the plethora of tomatoes that have taken over the house, some raspberry jam as well. As is Pilates and a walk and mixed in with those things are a few other more “mundane” tasks as well.

Oh, and I also have some eclipse viewing to do as well!

Hope your Monday is full of good things!

I would like to say I had a great weekend, however, the events that took place in Charlottesville loom like the dark grey skies that greeted my Monday morning. But, Friday’s Happy Hour was much improved by the calzones I made that were inspired by Bonny!

Saturday, we stopped to see our friend at the Farmer’s Market and he had more peaches which I will be turning into peach jam this morning. We picked volumes of tomatoes and raspberries from the garden that will soon become jams as well!

My list will keep me in the kitchen for most of the morning, which is not a bad way to spend a Monday in which you are trying to make sense out of senselessness.

And, I will leave you with this bit of goodness that Steve sent me this morning.

Drive by Monday

Drive by Monday

The weekend had a definite autumnal feel to it with cool temps, low humidity, and overcast skies. Kind of weird weather for early August, especially since I am not ready to be reminded that summer is winding down.

The weekend weather did afford a bit more Kon-Mari-ing, which is not really my favorite way to spend a weekend but I am pleased with the results.

The weather was perfect for a bonfire on Saturday night which was the first one we have had this summer!

Today is grey and rainy and my to-do list is substantial, so I am just going to focus on my list and hope for some sunshine and warm weather this week!

Happy Monday, everyone!

Unexpected Goodness

Unexpected Goodness

This Monday morning brings the close of July is the most unexpected but beautiful way.

It was a great weekend! Friday night cocktails were accompanied by some light snacks as we wound down the week.

Saturday saw me heading out with some “yarn” friends to visit a few shops on the Pittsburgh Yarn Crawl and the weather was just perfect – not too hot at all as we enjoyed the day.

Sunday, the day started out beautifully cool but it warmed nicely and the in afternoon we spent time in the yard doing a bit of work, which feels like it is never-ending.

However, this “overnight” visitor was a most welcome sight first thing this morning!

I hope your Monday is filled with unexpected goodness, too!
