Weekends



How was your weekend?  Mine was packed full of 'busy'.  But the good kind, you know?  On Saturday, our son arrived by lunchtime and then we were off to find some red wool for the toddler baby girl.  I found it!  phew - I can mentally cross of that to do.  When I get something in my mind, I am unstoppable! 

I can't start her sweater until I finish the last hat.  The last hat will be finished today or tomorrow, I promise.  Last night we started watching Stranger Things on Netflix and I'm hooked.  I love that it is PG 14 (my mental age for scary movies).  The show reminds me a bit of Dr. Who with the amount of suspense.  All good!


These photos are showing how messy my studio gets when I am wrapping and in the midst of creating.  Just keeping it real around here.  There is no perfect - even in the blogging world.


Today, I attended 7:30 a.m. Mass.  I really enjoy church in the early morning hours and the rest of the day is stretched out in front of me.  Once home I did some laundry then we were off to do a bit of shopping. Every store had Christmas music playing so I was in a great mood!


My husband's surgery went well, here is a photo of him looped out on anesthesia and pain killers, ha ha.  I did ask for and received permission to post this photo.  He is doing well, thanks for all the well wishes.  We were both a little stunned at all he cannot do (drive!) and the bandages are to stay on for two weeks??  He's calling the doctor tomorrow to confirm everything. 


How was your weekend?

  1. You are inspirational with your wrapped gifts, finishing hats, and wool ready and waiting to be cast on! I'm glad surgery went well for your husband and wish him a speedy and pain-free recovery. It's a good thing you are the knitter in the family; that bandage might get in the way of his knitting!

  2. When my craft room gets as neat as yours, I'll post a photo! It's insane at the moment.
    Your husband doesn't look loopy at all. Not driving is hard. I couldn't drive for 12 weeks after I broke my leg -- and that was just frustrating!

  3. Glad to hear your husband's surgery went well. The no driving for 2 weeks is a bummer. But, in the grand scheme of things it is doable. Karen, your craft room looks pretty good to me! In the chaos of wrapping things... oh, my, what a mess I can make!
    My brother and sister-in-law have been here since last Saturday; they go home tomorrow. Then, time to get ready for Amanda, Jerry and the boys! I love Thanksgiving. ;) blessings ~ tanna

    Sending all the healing thoughts his way.

  6. So glad you bestie is recovering nicely. There was cleaning over the weekend. I won't let myself work on my second vest, until the last of the fingerless gifts are made. I have at least one pair left to make.

  7. Between your finished and wrapped (!) Christmas gifts and your "messy" work room I may have to stop reading this blog :-o. Just kidding ;-).

  8. I'm glad your husband's surgery went well and hope he has a good recovery! Your craft room looks pretty good to me, especially at this time of year! Mine will get more cluttered & messier until I am done...then I do my big annual clean out & organizing in January.

  9. Wow! I thought I was keeping up with the holiday preparations, then I see you already have gifts wrapped. I am SO far behind already! Glad your husband's surgery went well. Sorry about the no driving thing but he probably can't hold a steering wheel safely with all those bandages on. Happy healing to him & best of luck dealing with the patient to you. :)

  10. Yikes! I haven't even thought about holiday shopping yet. I know it's going to sneak up on me and I will not be ready (I used to be so good at this, but no more).

  11. Hope the husband is feeling better soon.. 2 weeks seem difficult but it's better he get the rest he needs to make a full recovery.
    I started watching Stranger Things earlier this month as well.. just caught up with the rest of the world last week... it lived up to all the hype.

  12. I hope your husband gets well soon and isn't as stubborn as mine. E still drove with his broken/recovering foot because he had to go to work in Silicon Valley while I had the kids to drive around.

  18. Sending speedy healing vibes to your DH.

    Our weekend was busy in the good way. Saturday was for shopping for the house and Sunday was our hometown Christmas parade.

  19. All the best to your husband! Busy weekends are the norm in my household because I work during the week. Your knitting projects are all special and nicely executed not to mention the excellent colours you pick up every time!
