I’ve finished a scarf for one gift. Last night I worked on the edging for a fleece blanket for the mother of a friend. Vicki told me her favorite scarf was ratty so I told her to hit her stash to find yarn for another one. I started that last night.
At work, I meet up once a week to crochet with a co-worker. This week I’m working on a cloth to put in the door of a refrigerator under the ice / water in the door. Water collects there and I was asked if I could create something to fit in there to soak it up. I’ll be working on that today during our weekly session.
I’m hoping the weekend will be busy with crafting. I need to clear off some of the projects on my sofa. There are a ton of them. Some of them need prep work and some need finishing. If nothing else, I’ll pop in DVDs and watching those while I crochet. I’m binge watching Designated Survivor. I have one more disc to watch to finish the first season. Then I’ll determine whether I’m interested in the second season which I’m hoping is all on On Demand. If not, I may have to wait for it to come out on DVD and get from the library.
It’s been a stressful week. Monday is Mom’s day – I go to the nursing home to visit with her and do anything she needs me to do. Tuesday this week we met with the county person for aging to talk about the programs. I also got grumpy with one of her doctor’s offices about scheduling. The end result – I’m pretty sure that doctor’s office doesn’t like me but mom’s appointments got moved to a city half the distance from her location. My sister Aimee and I are doing funeral planning today – no mom is not dying but we are being proactive about the process. Plus for the county programs she has to have fewer assets and funds. Long term the county programs will help her more so better to spend down her accounts.
I also need to find time to read some books. I have four or five books which I need to read and review. People have sent them to me so I feel obligated to get them read. I’m working on a tough one where it is a bunch of essays. The authors use a lot of big words to say nothing. It’s disappointing – at least so far. I’ll continue to work my way through it. The nice part about the essays is it gives me short goals to get through the book faster. But it’s a large book – 300 + pages I think. My goal is to set the book next to me. Then I can read an essay or two between crocheting. I’ll see how this works. I’m hoping the other books are better and more interesting.
