The weekend went sort of as planned. The only thing we didn’t get done is the Subaru repair, which is pushed to Wednesday. We did get out on Saturday, though, and had the tires rotated, had my hair cut and had a nice lunch at Bojangles.
When we got home, I got started on the slippers I’ve been promising Steve. When I finished them Saturday night (it takes about 5 hours to make a pair), I put pictures up on Proof It, and the orders started pouring in! And by orders, I mean Mom and Dad both wanted a pair.
So I spent all day yesterday crocheting slippers. I got Mom’s pair done, and one done for Dad… I needed to make sure it fit him before making the second one. So that’s what I’ll be doing today. I may even get to a pair for myself today!
It’s a good day for it. It’s raining again, but at least the temperatures have come up a bit so Steve won’t have any trouble getting to work. I’m not going to complain about the rain; it is much needed and will make for excellent spring grass!
I also finished the blue afghan Friday evening. It’s on its way to its intended recipient. I’ll be putting up some pics of it later, as well.
We went to Mom and Dad’s for a fantastic venison roast last night, and I also made a chocolate cobbler to take along. I’d made it once before, and it was as good (and as easy) as I remembered. Tonight, we’ll have what’s left after our baked spaghetti pie. And I am thawing two roasting hens for one of our all-time favorites, Glazed Chicken and Vegetables. I’ll make that for a family dinner tomorrow, since Steve has the day off.
Today, though, more crochet. And maybe a nap.
