Busy weekend

So hubby took a some days off to make his weekend a little longer. We've spent a fair portion of the extended weekend on spring cleaning and major household decluttering. I'm happy with how far we've come, but I still have some things I'd like to get done before I'm happy with the placement of everything.

I also got to pick up some cotton yarn on sale for some future personal projects. So happy. I'm still waiting on my afghan hook to arrive in the mail. Not that I'm in a major rush on it - I don't need it until I have the current piece finished. But I get excited every time I'm waiting on a delivery. I'm like a kid waiting for Christmas. Anyways, in other shop news ~ I got featured in a treasury. So exciting! I do believe it's the first time I've ever been picked for a treasury. They chose my white pineapple baby blanket.

And back in the home life - my little man had his 4-year check up today. Poor little guy had to get 5 shots - so not fun. But he seems to have taken it like a champ. No fever and very little fussiness. So proud of my little guy.

And that's about it for this weekend. Tomorrow, it's back to the normal routine, and back to work myself.

Learning new things

So I signed up for a Ravelry some time ago, in a quest for new patterns. I haven't done much with it since then, but I logged in today to check on some things, and realized how much I can do with my Ravelry. So I've decided to dive in and figure this thing out. I've added my current project, and the one I have slated as my next one to my notebook, and am looking for friends to add. Hopefully, I like the sight as much as I think I will.
I also ordered the yarn for the next project today (hooray for yarn sales! got it all for 20% off!). So I can't wait for that to arrive. Fortunately, the sweet hearts blanket that I'm currently making is a favorite that I've made many times, and I should have it finished fairly quickly.
And tonight little man is going to stay with the grandparents for the evening, so that hubby and I can get some much needed alone time. We're planning on some shopping at the flea market (and possibly the book store for me), and then chilling out with some movies at home. I hope that everyone enjoys their weekend as much as I plan to.
