I technically don't have President's Day off, but I don't have a class today, I worked during the past two weekends (and on MLK day, which I technically did have off) and I'm out at the coast, so I don't think a lot of stuff beyond maintenance will get done today. I will go back mid-Afternoon, Tim heads up to Seattle tomorrow for some meetings.
It's been a great weekend. There has been--
All Kinds of Weather
Fog. Sun. Pouring Down Rain. Clouds. A Brief Attempt at a Sunset. And my favorite: Pouring down rain in the back of the house, and sunny in the front.
This was yesterday morning about an hour after we got up.
We took advantage, especially yesterday--we went for a walk on the beach (there was a deer on the beach! That is a first for us) and then a long walk in the afternoon as well. Saturday we were homebound because of the rain but we ventured out to go to a dinner party at a neighbor's. It was very fun to spend a rainy night with new friends.
All kinds of crafts
I knit, I embroidered, I made a bunch more cards (I'll show you those this week, because I'm going to be doing some experimental stamping work to add some color and texture to cards. I need another craft like I need a hole in the head but I think stamping could be a fun and fairly inexpensive (and contained) little rabbit hole to go down.
This is the new embroidery---the fabric has a blurry background that is different from other stuff, but it looks nice.
The glass etching stencils didn't work--they weren't tight enough on the glass tiles so they got kind of smeary. I think they'll work for stamping though (stay tuned on that one). And I bought some 'purple' tiles but they weren't purple all the way through--they were clear with some type of purple backing on them so they didn't reflect the light and as a result the etching looks like chalk. Not pretty, but good to know.
One meh movie
"The Good Liar" even though Helen Mirren and Ian McKellan were wonderful.
I hope your weekend was (and hopefully still is)
