I hope this Monday morning finds you all doing well. Thanks for all your comments on the Canary Blanket. It is finished (wrapped up the whole thing on Friday - even weaving in the ends!!).
The majority rules and I did not block it (I wsn't going to anyway...jut wanted to know what people thought). The grey, overcast weather we've been having would mean a month or two for it to dry! LOL. And, as several people commented, I think it will be just fine and will stretch out a bit with use. It is folded up and in a bag for Colin along with some other things I have for him.
Saturday was sort of a blah day for me. It wasn't nice enough to be outside (too raw and still windy). I finally settled down and went through my Dad's things that have been sitting in my home office since he passed away 6.5 years ago! Prior to now I just didn't want to deal with it. Now I needed to since I'm actually using the office. Everything has been sorted and I have piles for my brothers and a huge pile of things to be shredded (when I can get back to the office). It feels good to have that chore out of the way, but I was exhausted that evening.
Sunday dawned much nicer. First up there was Steve the Beav coming closer to the house!
As Colin says, What a Beast!! After breakfast I did some chores - cleaning bathrooms, laundry, etc. and did my workout. I decided to head over to the towpath to walk. It was a great time to go as there were not that many people out yet. There were tons of turtles sunning.
And ducks wandering about.
About 3/4 of the way back I passed a girl with a schnauzer and thank God I looked down. Because right there was the evil serpent!
I had just missed stepping on it. My heart was racing after that - lol. I know it is just a garter snake, but to me, a snake is a snake and is EVIL!!!
Later in the day I did some more archery.
Still no bulls eye and not that many arrows even hit the target this time!
I also pulled some weeds and an invasive vine that is wrapping itself around my lilac. Boy that was a lot of work!
That pretty much sums up my weekend. I worked some on the lilac/purple sock but will save that for another post.
How was your weekend?
