Holy Toledo Civic Weekend


We've been blessed with a 3-day weekend in which relaxing is definitely on the agenda! We're kicking back between toasted tomato sandwiches with cream cheese and garden salads AND sponge cake with real whip cream and berries. There will be lots of basking on the couch with my knitting (the 3rd clapotis is DONE - pictures to come) and a pile of Sue Townsend novels. I expect there will be drowsing off to sleep when my eyelids get to heavy to read another word and staying up too late on ravelry inputting all the gold I whisked away from yesterday's yard sale (that's the top photo minus another 30 skeins of wool that didn't fit in the picture). Each skein was a dollar, and I now have 100 more to add to the stash - do the math. There's Noro, Debbie Bliss, Koigu, Jo Sharp, Rowan and Manos del Uruguay. Am I dreaming???? Somebody pinch me. Today there was a girls trip to IKEA for Swedish meatballs, slipcovers, storage bins and fabric, and I laughed so hard that I had to wipe the tears from my eyes.
A weekend like this comes once a lifetime! I wish it didn't have to end.
