Not too bad. I knit until midnight yesterday. Today I try it on to check fit. I'm procrastinating on that. I am not quite ready for bad news this early in the morning. In other news, on Saturday, Brianna and I had SPA DAY. She was totally thrilled and I must admit it felt good. A soak in the tub, fancy lotions and massages, matching pink bath robes, a bit of make-up, trying on my fancy earrings (she just had her ears pierced a month ago!)...
A general lovely feeling of pampering and quality time spent with my daughter. I don't remember the last time I received so many hugs! And all in the comfort of our home. Doesn't get any better than that. She was SO Happy, she positively beamed!

Yesterday, I slept in, ignoring the whole time change thing. My animals were very forgiving. I finally had water in the barn, the weather was balmy and I felt in a cleaning mood. Even the bunnies got squeaky clean cages now.

After supper, Hubby packed up the kids and they all went to the camp overnight. FREEDOM. Precious time to be totally alone, if you don't count the dog and cats. With TV as background noise, I knit, and then I knit some more. And I had the most glorious gab on the phone with Alison, which seemed to go on forever. Totally uninterrupted. Miracles happen! Thank you Alison. It was priceless.

Today, I tackle the chicken condo. Then I tackle the sleeves. And laundry.
