I’ve never done so much in a weekend, and I don’t mean knitting! I think I only just got to settle down a little bit last night. Now, of course, I’m exhausted but ready for the week to come.
A friend of mine from work asked me to go with her and some other women to an opera. We first ate at a Greek/Indo/Pakistani restaurant called Miraj (great atmosphere and good food, too) and saw The Dialogues of the Carmelites. It was my very first opera, and I quite enjoyed it. I found myself, though, just listening to the beautiful music and forgetting to pay attention to the words and plot at times. It was so soothing. We ended up out until 2:30-3 am baking cookies.
I also did my first bout of truly public knitting, to an extent. At intermission, the others went off for various things and I stayed in my seat. I pulled out my Milk Run shawl and managed to get one row done. It’s not much, but it was kind of nice as I fidget so much when I have to sit still.
Then Sunday, I focused on the knitting. I should’ve worked on Ken’s sweater, but the shawl has really been appealing to me lately. It’s so simple and basic, and I can just relax with it. With the sweater, I need to pay attention, which I really don’t mind. I was just in the mood for easy. My husband and I have also been adding last-minute touch-ups to the Minion, as she’s being picked up after work. I’m going to miss her! I will post pictures of her next week, once it’s been given away to its new owner so I don’t run even the slightest chance of ruining any surprises.
I’m looking forward to this week. Ken and I did of Couch to 5K. It was brutal, but I can’t way to try again on Wednesday. I just have to keep reminding myself that it will get easier as we go, so to speak. Also, shifting exercise to the mornings is allowing me to come home, cook, and then knit the night away. I’m especially looking forward to that.
Thank you all again for participating in the Anniversary Giveaway. I’m hoping to do more events like that in the future (mostly because I thoroughly love giving gifts to people; I’m selfish, I know).
