Well, man was a busy weekend. I didn't realize it was gonna be like that when it started but knowing us, it just gets packed. Friday got off of work, got home to a grumpy hubby (he couldn't figure out why either so we just left him alone) and I went off with duchess_asa
and we got pedicures. It was so nice to have that done. Though they found what I suspected was a broken big toe nail under my polish. I had hit something with my toe and then at the gym I thought something was odd. They glued it back in place so it could grow normally for a while and not be so short. All good. Got back home and mel was having liquid dinner. Which is not so good for him though it was making him feel better. I hit up famous sam's for sandwiches and sat and KIP'd at the bar while waiting for my food. Had a slightly inebriated guy ask me if I was knitting a penis cozy. I replied nope, just a sock. But then I came up with better comebacks but oh, well. Got food home, enjoyed it and then settled into work on projects while we watched some tv I think. I hit bed a bit late after getting sucked into xmas specials on Syfy but that was okay too.
Saturday morning dawned early. We called up Tati and Mingo and met them for breakfast at Chaffin's Diner and then headed to the street fair. Such a good time was had. We hit the vintage shops too and mel picked up a faboo hat and a wonderful wool camel hair suit coat ($13 at Goodwill). I managed to find a nice couch to sit and put my feet up on at the shop and the shopping was good too. We headed out about 2pm and then got home to get ready for yule. Mel took a nap, I talked with mom due to the snowpocolypse that was happening near the farm. We got dressed and ready and down in good time for dinner. The food was tasty, the company faboo and there are still people that didn't know we were expecting. Lol. Well, its pretty obvious now. The russian makes it look pretty good too, even without my belt (I couldn't locate it). It was a good time and we got to chat with folks we hadn't had a chance to in a long time. Oh, all 3 of the preggers gals there are all due in March. So, prepare for the baby onslaught come spring. We headed out about 930pm and we were both very tired..the drive took a while since I'm still not used to the elgin or sonoita roads but we made it home in one piece and then to bed. I read for a bit and then snuggled down and was asleep.
Mel got up early on Sunday to put on chili for the household meeting. I stayed in bed resting. My head was hurting and kinda stuffy. He left to head out to bike with Matt and I finally got up since the apprentice was expected in the in the AM. I got a shower and realized it was a sinus headache due to war nose symptoms. I figure all of the cooking fires at the fair, the cottonwoods fornicating in the breeze and the huge elevation change going up and back to elgin didn't help me at all. Felt better after a shower and then chatted with Tony until it was time to head to breakfast with the bike crew. Had a nice time at Joe's and then headed home to finish getting things ready for the house meeting.
The one thing that doesn't need to be said is that Hrafnheim likes food, likes to cook and well, yeah, we were stuffed. I also got an early xmas present of a trifle bowl from Magdalen! Woot! I see trifle for xmas. Mel has refused to purchase me one for years due to having to store it. Bah Humbug I say! Woot! I managed with lferion
's help to get 8 out of the 11 ornaments finished for Twila and I hope to get one more done tonight and the final pieces tomorrow for Wednesday delivery. Just need to call her to set that all up. We got home from the house meeting and the boys got beer and played video games while I managed to work on rob's present. Its turning out really nice so far. I'm still amazed that hours of knitting don't hurt but a few hours with breaks of hand sewing and my thumb is jacked. Grump.
But we all got to bed about on time though I stayed up reading rather late. Silly me. I finished "White Witch, Black Curse" by Kim Harrison #40 for the year on Sunday morning and started a two pack book from Rachel Caine which are the first two Morganville Vampire books. So, 41 and 42 are in work. I might actually make the 50 this year and that has me excited. We shall see though...lots to do between now and the 31st. So, all good. Well off to fight paperwork on my LAST MONDAY OF WORK FOR THE YEAR! Sorry, I'm a tad excited about that.
