I used to wonder what people meant by TGIF and after a very long, stressful week I now truly understand. Though I'd say thank God each day, today I'm really glad its the weekend. I look forward to resting and spending time cleaning my house. I haven't been as focused on it due to all the driving but you wait, I'm going to get my act together and clean. Yelp, I sure will, or at least get the kiddos to do it. LOL
Last night, Sk8Chick and I decided to have on own knit-in. We staged this because we were unable to go out to either the LYS or Starbucks. ;D Boy, have we been spoiled in doing that for the past few weeks. Anyway, we pulled out a book on cd and cd player, several of the library books, some yarn and current projects, our notebooks, hot tea and cookies and we talked, oohed and aahed over the designs and patterns, worked on our projects and planned more. We had a lot of fun, even Riley joined us for a little while. We didn't get to the book though, we had too much fun listening to the classical cd "Water Music." Very lovely too. Sk8Chick had a hard time deciding what to make w/her gift yarn and I looked for patterns for my shawl and bath set. I did find a bath set pattern in the "One Skein" book and I believe that will also be my project for the August KAL n KAL.
I received 2 packages yesterday ~ 1 was my ugly dishcloth exchange and the other was from the Tea Party Swap. They both were great. I really loved each of my gifts and can't wait to try out my new teas.
Tea Party Swap
Off to get some packages ready for the PO and a quickie nap ~ I've been up since 5a and I'm a bit tired. I work tonight and I don't want to fall asleep standing up. If anything worth writing happens later, I'll post. If not, have a great weekend.

Favorite chairs anticipating,
No matter what I have to do,
My friend, there's always time for you."
