Ten on Tuesday

This week's theme is 10 things you did over the weekend.  Did I even do ten things this past weekend? 

Tom worked on Saturday which is seldom an issue for me but it did mean a little more running around for me.

I went to the post office to mail a package of hats to Maisie!
Then I went to breakfast.
I read more of the book Last Chance: Knit and Stitch by Hope Ramsey 
Then I came home and knitted on my Spellbound Boo-Knits shawl, purple with red beads. 
I watched a lot of Star Trek: The Next Generation (love me some Picard and Earl Grey--hot)

Sunday morning when Tom went to do the laundry at 6 AM I got up and cleaned the apartment, then went back to bed until 8:30   Took him until 3 PM to realize what I had done
The girl who bought our dining room furniture came by and picked up the rest of it
I tried to convince Tom that we needed to get ready for the move to no avail
I sent an email wishing my sister and her husband a happy 30th anniversary.
I finished knitting the Duane Park Triangle by Kristen Kapur. 

Nothing exciting, very dull in fact.  We now are down to two weekends before the move and I don't know how we are going to it.  Finding new life insurance has been one of the biggest hassles ever.  I swear if I knew then what I know now I would never get anything but whole life.  Luckily I have a very good agent who came through for me at the 11th hour, but I think she knew if she didn't we would have gone uninsured.   KNIT ON!!!!

  1. Well ya did more than me, er I did, uh!

    Let's see. Saturday morning I got up at 4:30 a.m. and ......went to the woods squirrel hunting. :) Then Sunday, someone didn't reset her alarm and, well what's a girl to do with her beauty sleep wrecked but..... go to the woods squirrel hunting! (Info for Tommo -- Glenfield Marlin 22 lr AND ggf's 410 ga. Stevens 58C bolt)

    I also swung through the roadside dollar/feed/junk/deer bait store (cough) and picked up another 50# of potatoes and 30-ish # of deer bait carrots to can. Perfectly wonderful carrots but for them being "different sized" than grocery store ones. Of course, I already have 50# of taters here from the last expedition. I'm also going to attempt steak fries for the freezer as well. I'm considering hooking up the apple peeler gizmo to the electric drill. What was I thinking.....

    I did sew up a little set of curtains for the north door of the house ad four throw pillows for the couch. And bought more fabric....sigh. (I'm hovering over an auction for a Singer featherweight.....okay I have 4 sewing machines from treadle to electronic and a serger...but but but)

    Life insurance is a factor here too....now health and age. We've carried a policy for about 12 years thats now $$$$, but it will pay out much more than we've paid into it. Never thought I'd pay a small car payment monthly for life insurance. Geez..
