It’s nearly the weekend! Woohoo! I don’t know about you, but after a crazy week, I’m ready to kick back and relax. Except, there will be no kicking back and relaxing until Sunday.
This week’s one goal was to focus on mom’s shawl. For the most part, I was successful. The shawl has grown a bit over the past few days, but not nearly as much as I would’ve liked. Hopefully I can get more progress this next week. I also need to finish dad’s socks. I’d like to give both the shawl and socks to my parents’ for their anniversary next Friday (which is also my birthday!). I just really need to buckle down and get some work done.
Luckily, today is Employee Awards Day at my job. This year, I suggested (and I’m sure I’m not the only one who did) that the committee should include a crafting area to kind of beat the heat. I’m not athletic. Softball and volleyball just do not appeal to me. We’re also expecting a high of 95 today. I’m in no mood to be stuck in the heat until I absolutely have to. So, I’m going to hang out in the crafting area and knit the morning away! It actually sounds quite wonderful. I’ll finally get a good chunk of time to work on mom’s shawl or dad’s last sock.
So, why will there be no relaxing until Friday? I’m glad you asked! After weeks of preparation, it’s finally here: Color Me Rad – Fort Worth! Color Me Rad is my very first 5K, and it looks like I couldn’t have picked a better one. There’s no pressure in this 5K, and they don’t time you. You just run, get colour and water thrown at you, and then throw color yourself. Sounds like fun! We’re just about all set. I need to gather my clothes together tonight so I’ll be ready. I can’t wait!
When we’re done, home, and de-colored, I’m spending the entire weekend hanging out with the husband and knitting. I’m telling you, I’m determined to get these two projects done by May 24th!
Any fun plans for the weekend? Any projects that you plan to work on?
