A day off
So far, it's been a day off in terms of Olympic knitting, but I've been doing plenty.
I paid bills and did the banking.
I took some fabric to a woman who sews -- she just opened up shop downtown -- and will be picking up some window treatments by the end of the month. I know how to sew, and I don't mind sewing, but I'm obviously not getting it done (it's been months) and I'm getting tired of looking at the fabric on top of my washing machine.
We went to the antique mall after lunch. While Mom talked cataract surgery with Jean, who was manning the store today, I found a cute oblong basket, a funky cool clock for DH to hang in his studio, and I splurged on some new earrings.
They're made from old typewriter keys. I can wear them with the "V" ring that Cara gave me a couple of years ago and the "Expert Typist" merit pin that I found in Grandma's jewelry box a while back. As you can see, it all makes me quite happy.
Um... I've also found some time to carry on with the k.d. lang festival that's been raging in these parts ever since the Opening Ceremonies of the Olympics. Just thought I'd share.
Now I'm off to Zumba. I was suffering a sinus headache on Monday -- and even a bit yesterday -- and Zumba was the last thing I wanted to do; I am really trying to get there at least once a week, though, and today's the day.
