Weekend Fun With Sheep and More
Today was so gloomy I had to fight the the feeling from creeping inside my head. We went out for breakfast and then went to Harbor Freight and Target. Although I had made fun of Harbor Freight I promptly found the chair I had been looking for for the patio. It needs to be stained or painted and put together. I'm trying to talk my Dad into teaching me how to stain, but that just earned me a confused look. He doesn't understand my interest in what he has developed such skill at. I also think he sees it as "man work", which is just plain stupid. We'll see what happens. Maybe I'll get a book and teach myself. Dinner at the folks was total bickering chaos. J got so twitchy we left early. Alex did ease my pain with a delicious margarita.
After I got home I finished the CPH front, woo hoo! I think this project will be on temporary hold so I can play with my new yarn.
The rest of my time has been consumed by Water For Elephants. I was hesitant to read this since I don't like the circus and I don't like elephants very much. I'm glad Emily convinced me. The fact that a Jack Russel Terrier is featured in it just adds to the enjoyment.
All in all a good few days. I needed them.
