A good weekend

Well, Sunday night. I've been on call this weekend at night, but it hasn't been bad at all. I've gotten several hours of sleep each night, which is great. I finally got my package to Ann for our 40 Days for Others project. Apparently everyone in Caldwell had something to mail as well. I was there for about 40 minutes standing in line. But I did see one thing that made it all worthwhile. A woman there was picking up boxes of "hatching" eggs. I was totally intrigued by the idea of getting all these live eggs in the mail. So many little potential chickens sitting there on the counter.

Also yesterday I hit the LYS with Erica for my next Sock Club sock and yarn. While there, we discovered that this weekend was a "fiber-fest" with all the local yarn stores participating. So of course I had to participate. I hit 3 other yarn stores. Drop a Stitch in downtown Boise, Handmade in Eagle, and Knit One, Quilt Too in Kuna. I got a couple of things at the first two, but I have no pictures to share because they're for my SP.

Today has been laundry day. And knitting/spinning day. I'd much rather just knit and spin on a Sunday, but clean undies are important too. And C probably wants clean diapers. So I guess it's not all fun and games, but pretty damn close. All in all, a good weekend.

What luck stumbling across a fiber festival like that! You so clearly demonstrated why it's so important to go to yarn stores like they vote in Chicago - early and often!

Sounds like fun. I'm jealous of all the yarn store shopping.

The comment about clean diapers, does that mean someone still uses cloth diapers? I happen to think that is great. I used them on all my kids, but my youngest is almost 16. I bought some for my grandson and my daughter looked at me like I was crazy. And I am jealous, more than one LYS in the area.....some people are soooo lucky. Have a great day.
