This weekend is Memorial Day . . . the official kick off to summer for many of us. Sadly, our weather is predicted to be pretty un-summer-ish. Cool and rainy off and on right through Monday. Definitely not ideal for time outdoors. Luckily, I’ve got 3 things to occupy my time while I’m indoors.
- Saturday night we are having dinner at our friend’s house. This dinner was originally scheduled for March 2020. It was actually one of the first things we cancelled at a time when we weren’t really sure cancelling was necessary but it felt like we should. Little did we know that it would be 14 months before we could safely get together and finally have this dinner party. I’m so looking forward to this, it feels like a very symbolic return to normal. Plus I’m bringing a chocolate cream pie.
- I’ll be knitting. Hopefully a lot. Hannah’s wedding in Iceland is only 79 days away and I’m knitting the Aperture Stole to wear during the ceremony. I bought this kit last year when my OLW was Open (a word I had initially picked to help me accept Hannah’s wedding plans) but I never actually started it. After I bought my mother-of-the bride dress I realized that the color matches perfectly and I decided it would be just the thing for a cool-ish wedding by a waterfall. There are many, many (many!) rows to this stole and I need to get my butt in gear if I’m going to finish it in time. There’s also a little sweater for the bride to be considered, too, so knitting definitely needs to be a priority these days.
- This is a catch all category of other-indoor-activities up for consideration. It includes hanging out with Dale, playing games, starting a puzzle, and reading. I’m willing to bet that at some point over the long weekend I will do several, if not all, of these things.
Even a rainy long weekend is better than a regular weekend, right? If you wrote a post for today please include your link below and thanks for joining Three On Thursday this week.
