I am reviewing my list of what I wanted to accomplish this weekend... and most of it didn't happen. I was about to scold myself, when I realized, "Hey, I did some different things this weekend and enjoyed the time with my Sweetie and the great weather we have had."
I will find time this week to do that little bit of hand sewing that needs to be finished. The lady who asked me to fix her caftan can wait another day.
My income taxes are almost complete, so why am I beating myself up? They are due at the end of the month... no biggie.
I did not read the end of a book that I borrowed. The owner hasn't asked for it back, so again, I can get around to that, but later.
What we did do on Saturday was enjoy a breakfast out together. Then we drove into town to see a photography exhibit and it was free admission! We know two of the photographers that had entries int the show, so it made it that much more special. One of those friends won a blue ribbon too. I think he won Judges' Favourite.
Lunch was a pathetic attempt but I ragged on myself in yesterday's blog, so I'm over that. BUT, what we did do, was visit a bookstore that I have been wanting to check since last summer. I've got a sweet guy who actually listens to what I want to do "someday". Often, he makes it happen!
(Oh, I bought a second-hand book on water colour painting and I found a lovely birthday card for an artist friend of mine. ) That bookshop trip was a winner!
I got some groceries in plus I was able to pick up and deliver milk and cream for my co-worker doing the weekend shift. I knew she would want a coffee, but we had nothing to doctor it up. (Until I got there.)
Today, we went to a fellow's home and he wanted to sell some of his woodworking tools, as he is going back to the States and cannot truck all his tool collection tomorrow. We found two power tools that have a new home in our garage AND we were gifted a bunch of glue, nails and screws. Woodworking guys have some sort of Brotherhood thing going on.
(I just stayed to the perimeter and let them talk 'sawdust' and 'live edge' and all about burls in their projects. )
I was a bit cross eyed with fatigue after trying to compute taxes... and when dinner time came about, our neighbour came over with some frozen salmon and a tub of ice cream! She was coming over for dinner and bringing it with her. (Taxes can wait!)
So, you see, I didn't get everything done that I had on my list. I did get outside and see things I've wanted to and visit with folks that were of the same mind... I had a good weekend!
How about you?
