Well I have a few pairs of socks to finish up, some homework for the conference and some hanks to wind into balls. I will need to stay off Ravelry for a few nights, which is getting easier to do now that I have entered my projects, queue, and most of my sock stash. I will be working on my Swap Pal packages and their gift socks as well. That should all be good blog material, but on the other hand I will get more done if I stay out of Blogger for awhile too. This weekend I did not turn on the TV, I did not get more knitting done than with the movies last weekend.
I listened to most of Stephen Fry reading The Order of The Phoenix. I think I prefer Jim Dale. Some of the pronunciations are downright annoying. His female voices are more natural though and easier to take. I am comparing them as I listen. I have favorite lines and scenes in the Jim Dale audiobooks.
I have a few podcasts to listen to this week. I saved them on purpose. I have a few more packages en route. The postman left a slip Friday re a package from Germany, but he did not redeliver it on Saturday. Idiot!!! My cousin came back to Cali after the family reunion and she took the box of yarn I was planning to send her to the post office and mailed it home herself. Cool. I think she will like the colors I gave her.
My brother would not let us do anything for his 50th birthday. I sent up some prayers of thanks for having him in my life and wished him a good day. I hope he had one. He was not home when I called today and he is off to Pebble Beach tonight. I'll have to wait to chat at him when he gets home.
Hmm now seems like a pretty good time to get started on my To Do list. Adieu!
