Weekend Options

The weekend looms in front of me with a large list of things to do.  It is pay week so that means all the normal errands.  In addition, I want to go to Michaels for their sale.  They are having a sale on crochet cotton which I use a great deal of.  It's on sale for 97 cents.  I downloaded their app for my smart phone and got a 20% off my entire order coupon.  This means the crochet cotton will be about 78 cents a skein.  Normal price - anywhere from 1.97 to 2.50 or so.  It is a deal I can't pass up.

I also have to go to the DMV to renew my license.  This promises to be an interesting event.  Ken is going to go with me.  Hopefully we can accomplish both this afternoon.  If we do, it will leave tomorrow for errands.

Sunday I'm going to my niece's bridal shower.  I'm so happy for her.  I can't wait for her to see the gift I made her.  I hope she likes it. 

It will be a busy weekend and yet in my head I'm planning out what else I might get done.  I am nearly done with my student worker's wristers.  I hope to finish them tonight.  After they are done I'll turn my attention back to my daughter's afghan.  My hands aren't as bent with arthritis.  I can actually make a fist and tighten it with only a small amount of pain.  Her project is not portable.  It will not travel well.  The yarn is delicate and fussy, though exceedingly beautiful. 

If I end up going around while Ken does errands, I'll probably through a crochet project in a small bag and take it with me.  I have four going on right now and only two of them are overly portable.  Ironically I wouldn't take any of the current ones with me.  I'd probably take the left over crochet cotton so I could work on trivets or dish towels. 

It promises to be a busy weekend and I'm hoping it will also be a productive one.
