Monday Rumblings's Monday Again.  Least favorite day of the week.  I stay up late every Sunday, trying to stretch out as much of the weekend as possible, but haven't been successful to stop Monday from coming.  So far, anyway.

Having a movie at work today.  It's a classic:  9 to 5, starring Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda and Dolly Parton.  It's one of the first movies that I remember from when I was a kid.  Not that it's a kid movie...sheesh!  Tomorrow we're having a "beginner painting" class.  The description says that it's even for people who've never painted before.  Wish I didn't have an office full of paperwork to work on, it sounds like fun!

Last week I got to meet up with an old friend for coffee, and give her the sweater that I made for her daughter a few months back.  It was a bear sweater, and so sweet.  She promptly sent me photos of her daughter wearing it and it looks wonderful!  I don't take "commission requests" often and I've never accepted money for something that I made.  Knitting is a hobby for me and I'd hate for it to start feeling like work.  That being said, I really enjoyed this and may make another animal sweater someday!

Started my Christmas Knitting.  Yep....I'm that girl again this year.  It was SO nice to have it all out of the way two weeks before Christmas last year that I want to experience that calm again.  Right now on the needles:  a pair of adorable green cotton baby leggings for a little boy not yet born, a gray hoodie sweater for my oldest and a lace scarf that I'm making for charity.  Oh, and those damned, damned blue socks for myself that I started over a year ago.  I'm insistent on finishing those before starting another pair.

And this weekend....headed to Maine to visit Maureen and Sky.  We're even bringing Joey this time.  Joey loves to travel and he LOVES Maureen and Sky.  Looking forward to a few days away!
