This weekend is a first in a while. I have a quiet weekend. Outside of my hair appointment, I don’t have to be anywhere. A few years ago this would have been the norm and I wanted a more active social life. Now I have it and I sometimes miss my loner self. The grass is certainly greener on the other side of the fence.
I have spent this weekend knitting and reading. I am almost done with the second Outlander book, Dragonfly in Amber and the scarf is getting bigger and the skein of yarn is getting smaller. Yesterday was World Wide Knit in Public Day. A bunch of us braved the misty, drizzly weather on Wollaston Beach to come. That is is me sitting on the bench in the green. Here is the Ravelry post.
I also went to visit Mom yesterday. She was not in a talkative mood and she fought with me when I went to take the book away. She would not look at me at all. When she finished her chapter, she smiled at me. I asked her a few questions but she did not talk. She could not get away from that book. When I talked to Dad later, he said that she was really talkative early. Perhaps she was talked out when I went. I left after 30 minutes.
The weather here is still kind of blah. I am trying to keep that mood up. Cloudy, rainy, a perfect day for laundry and cleaning. That is what I am off to do.
I will do a food journal posting tonight as well. My iTouch battery died so I have to charge it.
