It was a good weekend, not a lot on the agenda as Tim was finishing his dissertation (oh, that little job) that he sent to his committee last night. His defense is two weeks from today, hooray! He still has to put together his defense talk (45 minutes!) but the light is at the end of the tunnel.
This is how old I am: my defense talk was done on acetates and presented on an overhead projector.
Anyway, I felt so much better this weekend than in weekends past I did a lot of things I had meant to do, such as wind yarn.
I'm nowhere close to finishing either of the two projects (and still have ends to weave in) but I'm already thinking ahead to new projects. I'm not at home right now so I don't know who these yarns are. The top is speckled which I like. The second one looks like rhubarbs. The third is handspun from Ann, and the fourth is some Knit Picks that needs to be a cowl with trees on it.
I also framed all my little stitches.
"The Mother in Law" by Sally Hepworth (it was good---a murder occurs, there are four suspects, maybe five, and the ending is satisfying in a "Gift of the Magi" kind of a way.
I also read another Elin Hildebrand book. Her work is sort of chick-lit-y but her stories and characters are engaging, at least when I'm brain dead. I read "Nantucket Nights" and it was one of her early ones--no one has a cell phone! Or Internet!
We watched "First Man" on Saturday night. It was fine. I was kind of bored. Is it bad to say that space stuff kind of bores me?
