A Cheatin' Saturday Sky



Heh, posted on Sunday and picture taken on Wednesday evening. I do try *G*

I truly meant to take a pic of Saturday sky but it looked like a lot of others, blue skies, with an occasional cloud. The weather was lovely. I think it may have gotten up to 80 but the wind was blowing so it seemed cooler.

My initial plan for a quick errand run yesterday turned into several hours. The library went quickly, the post office wasn't crowded (how weird that was) and I got the packages mailed in no time. Then a quick stop at the quilt store for one fat quarter to go into a Christmas present turned into a really long visit. It's usually quite crowded on Saturday but everyone must have been at the State Fair, so there was the owner, one of the employees and me. I had a new magazine with a pattern I loved, and they didn't have it so I came home...ate lunch and took the magazine back. We all admired the pattern and then went through the magazine page by page. It was a magazine featuring various quilt shops all over the US. So we imagined what her store could be if it was larger...picked out the bldg she needs to own...set up all the displays..heh, lots of 'play like'. And then went on to projects she'd like to make and tips on the one I was thinking about.

Oh how I wish there was a yarn shop like that here. Or even somewhat close. Of course, I'd be spending all my money and living under a bridge! I did suggest that since a lot of knitters I know quilt, or use fabrics to make bags and such, that she could have both in her great big store. Purl Soho...or Purl on the Prairie? *G*

Then I came home and worked outside. I had my favorite 'working' book on tape to accompany me. So me and Rita Mae and her fur babies mowed and trimmed off some branches, and repotted some plants.

And all of that gave me a BIG appetite so I came in and made spagetti and have enough left for supper tonight. I'm not used to eating that much for supper so the rest of the evening I was pretty much prone with a book in my hands and/or listening to the OU game on the radio. Knitting would have required me to at least sit up a bit *G*

Today, I'll hopefully get the rest of the plants repotted, and there's a huge Norfolk Pine on the patio that needs a shower and then come inside for the rest of the fall and winter. I have NO idea where it's going to go. And hopefully I'll finally get to the can bank.

And also some knitting and some tracing of pattern onto freezer paper.

And, there are a couple of posts in my Blogger draft section that I wrote earlier in the week but couldn't get loaded. Hopefully they really are in the draft section. And if so, you may see a lot more of me today!

Enjoy this day!

Lovely sky pic!

Ann said...

Whew..busy busy busy...Dontcha know you're supposed to take it easy on the weekends?

:o)

Sprite said...

What a beautiful and artistic sky picture! Sounds like you and I could be related - or is it no rest for the wicked? lol (looks for halo) I spent this evening catching up on wayyy overdue gardening, myself.

Susan said...

Cat, it was. I love actually getting stuff done, but I still vote for 3 day weekends. One day for errands, groceries, that sort of thing. One day for house stuff, laundry. And one day to watch movies and knit.

Susan said...

Devorah, but no where as busy as YOU! I don't see how you do it.

Susan said...

Thanks Ragan...and now I need to go 'visit' your blog. Probably a lunch time treat.

Susan said...

Ann, hello? I didn't see you being lazy this weekend either *G* And here we are at Monday again. Are weekends faster?

Susan said...

Sprite,there is no halo here so I suspect that's the reason *G*

OK, is it the Pine, or you, that will come in for the rest of the fall & winter?! LOL ... I'm guessing the Pine, so how you gonna move it?!

Have you checked your eMail lately?

Susan said...

Paris, it came in the house in my arms. And yes, I check my eMail. Why?

~FParis said...

LOL ... I thought the Pine was really, really big, so that's why I asked! HA!

I eMailed you a question about your Singer

Paul said...

OMG! What a gorgeous sky! Beautiful!

Devorah said...

I just reread this post -- it showed up again in my bloglines. Purl Soho is a great knitting store near me -- with a quilting store attached!

How weird! Blogger ate a whole post last night so maybe it was trying to make up by sending out a repeat!

Devorah, I love that store...and maybe I'll get to go there someday! I "visited" Knitty City online too since you said it was your favorite. Wow, they sure have a lot going on there!

Susan said...

Paris, well we got the Singer question all sewn up *G*. ohhh bad pun!
The tree is about 4 ft tall from pot to top and it's branch span is also about 4 ft. Kinda big for any spaces in this place. However since it started out as less than 12" tall and about 8 inches wide, I'm so pleased that I haven't killed it ;-)
