Weekends



This weekend was filled with:

-walking!  OH the walking, I've missed it and my body is slowly getting used to the exercise
-sunny skies that you just want to soak up the rays (but it's cold)
-all of my knitting projects are green-so you know what that means,
-starting a new project with purple
-spinach pesto with toasted almonds.....yum
-catching up with Downton Abbey and Elementary from the dvr
-catching up with the kids and their lives, in two weeks our daughter will be on spring break
-mundane tasks--bill paying, laundering, washing dishes, editing documents, and sweeping
-preparations for up coming classes that I'll be teaching
-backing up my photos onto a new hard drive after my husband's hard drive crashed and he lost most of the music data (from CDs) that he streams
-realizing that we need a back up of the back up :)

how was your weekend?

  2. Isn't it crazy that you need a backup for your backup. Lovely sample. And green will soon be predominant everywhere. And spring break already - will she come home?

  18. We've got amazing skies with the moon out in the day but like you Amanda I'm finding it freezing...lovely for long walks when wrapped up well and knitting too. I learned a new crochet skill from my sister in law at the weekend so I'm dying to try that out on a scarf and really some green like your sample.
