My Weekend

It is Saturday night it has been a long quite and boring day. I love the time I get to spend alone, but today was not the best day. Fund's are low due to the fact that I have to pay bills. I wish I did not have to pay bills. It has always been my dream that I could find a Sugar Daddy to pay my bills. This has never happened because I am not the most outgoing or attractive person in the world. So no Sugar Daddy. So the day after payday I am broke and it looks like I will not be able to attend The Carolina Fiber Fest in Raleigh next weekend. Oh well it could be a lot worse and I could have no job and be homeless. I am still reading Little Dorrit, by Charles Dickens it is a very, very slow read, and I am reading The Knitting Diaries, by Debbie Macomber, Susan Mallery, and Christina Skye. I joined a group on Ravelry that involves dishcloths and cast on the Grandmother's Favorite it is the dishcloth of the week. Still knitting the Slanted Squares dishcloth from Leisure Arts Kitchen Bright Dishcloths. So far so good. Today it cost me $35.76 to fill my gas tank. So I am trying to conserve this tank of gas and make it last until the next time I get paid. So no out of town trips which would have made my Saturday a lot better. Asheboro just has nothing to offer if you want to enjoy your weekend. Went to the library today had a few patterns I wanted to print off. I am out of ink so it is cheaper to print patterns at the library than to by ink. I want to grow as a knitter this year. Go beyond dishcloths and scarves. So sometime in the near future I plan to work on cables and circular needles.

Mother's Day.

This weekend turned out to be okay. My daughter came for a visit on Saturday she took me and my mother out to eat and then spent the night. Today we got up spent the morning together and then went to the store to prepare for a cook out. My sister came over with her family we all had a great time and now my mother is getting ready to go to montgomery county to spend time with her sister and their mother. All around great weekend. My mother and I picked up a few tomato plants and herbs to plant on Saturday and a few flowers. I am working on #8 Slanted Squares dishcloth from Leisure Arts Kitchen Bright Dishcloths. Picked up Debbie Macomber, Susan Mallery, and Christina Skye The Knitting Diaries. Just a few pages into the book. I will have the house to myself for the next few days. Happy Mother's Day!
