|gifts from my sister|
What a fabulous weekend! Before I get into all the fun I had, thank you so much for the support over 'rude' people. I'm glad I'm not the only one out there feeling sensitive. I sailed through my weekend without any incidents so I've recovered. For now.
My sister was here! If you're a regular reader, you already know that. However maybe you're visiting for the first time. I love writing my weekend post because I get a chance to share my happenings.

She arrived by lunchtime on Friday and we both pretended this was a vacation. After a quick salad for lunch, we were in the pool talking and relaxing. Friday was 95 degrees so the pool was wonderful. In the afternoon, we drove to a neighboring town to an art store to shop around in. She bought bullet journals and I bought a new set of drawing pencils to try out. I'm slowly dipping my toes into sketching. I used to sketch when I was a teen especially when our family went camping in the summer.

Saturday was all day swimming for her (not literally all day) while I knit or read. We had a lovely dinner of shrimp, baked potato and green beans. We did a little bit of shopping in the early evening and then relaxed with some knitting.
Oh hey, I discovered a flaw in my whiteout shawl. I could not let it be, so I ripped out the entire shawl. I've cast on again and dropped down a needles size since that is what was niggling in my mind the whole time.
Now some of you would say 'doesn't that make you sad?' Nope. I am thrilled I found the mistake!
Knitting makes us all humble at times.
My sister left early this morning and I've done all my chores. How was your weekend?
