- Well, I didn't get much crochet done this weekend. Friday nite me and my husband went on a date. On the way we stopped off at Hobby Lobby to pick up the yarn I needed for the blue poncho for my commission. Almost couldn't find the blue hues (they were really picked over due to the LB sale a few weeks ago and they haven't re-stocked yet).. What crocheter doesn't start out a romantic date with yarn shopping first?
- Saturday was the big Meet the Girlfriend Day and we went shopping in Nashville. My son's girlfriend is really nice and petite. We took them to the Olive Garden for dinner (she had never been there before!). It was fun. My other two sons were on good behavior. She thought the youngest was "so cute"-- brothers don't quite get that cause all they get at home is grief from the youngest. But he is cute.
- Sunday was get the house cleaned up day. One of my sisters is coming today to pick up a piece of furniture and I was using it so yesterday I had to clean it off and re-arrange my living room to accomedate the lose of a buffet. But it gives us more room and makes the space look less closed in. Now what to do with all the stuff?! The kids and husband cleaned the garage and did a great job. No more stepping over crap to get the to laundry area. How long it will last is up for bets.
- So as you can see crochet was at a minumum. I worked on my shawl between breaks and a little each morning. Now I have to start the poncho.
Tip: STRETCH- - Not only does it feel soooo good, but stretching also keeps your body flexible so it will do what you want, when you want. And studies show that regular stretching can also lead to weight loss. Here's how it works: When we stretch, we engage muscles that become more developed over time. Muscles take up less space in our bodies than fat, and they also burn a lot of calories to survive. So stretching effectively turns our bodies into fat-burning machines. Stretching is also a stress reliever. So stretch stretch stretch today and everyday. You'll thank me later, promise.
