Seriously - does it fly for you, as fast as it seems to for me? Yikes.
Yesterday was my birthday. I can now order from the Senior menu at IHop. I can get discounts at some stores on their Senior Day shopping days. I'm the speed limit in most places. The big 55. Hmmmmm......
This week I got to see my granddaughter. I love that child. I just can't explain it. She is so stinking sweet. I hope she never changes. I love the way she looks at me and smiles......I hope that never changes!
I went shopping yesterday and found a frame for my poster, finally. Almost perfect. At least I didn't have to cut any of the poster.
We also went to lunch at IHop, but I didn't order off the Senior menu. LoL. I just don't know if I'm ready for that.......
Today I went to lunch with my friend Rita. Tonight, she is supposed to be meeting with a new Real Estate Agent. I hope this one is a real go-getter and will sell this house of Rita's once and for all. It's a GREAT house. I will miss having Rita so close. She won't move far, but she won't be driving past my house to get home anymore, once she moves, either. I will miss that.
I got some weaving done. Not a lot. But some. I'm working on it. I need to get moving on this warp. I want to move on. I don't know to what.
Don't tell hubby but I'm looking for another loom. I think it's time to try a smaller loom and see if I like it better. I would like to join a different guild as the one we joined, is spinning and weaving and all kinds of fiber....not really what I was hoping to find. This other guild is probably just as far away, meets on Sunday afternoons once a month, and focuses on weaving. That is exactly what I've been wanting.
I'm also thinking that I may not want to concentrate on complicated weaving. At one point, I thought I wanted an 8 shaft loom instead of a 4 shaft loom. Now, though, I have decided I am fine with a 4 shaft loom, and that I wouldn't mind doing more plain weave (easy treadling and could actually be done on a 2 shaft loom) and using more expressive colors and types of yarns. There is a lot I want to explore.
I still haven't cut my strips for rug weaving. I have to order a shuttle to use for rug weaving and haven't wanted to spend the money on that. I keep hoping for a sale! I guess I'm going to have to break down, and just find the least expensive one, and buy it. I do want to get started with that. I want to at least give it a try before I give up on this big loom totally. I could do some rug weaving on a smaller loom. But the looms that fold and are transportable - which I think is what I want to have - aren't heavy duty enough to do them a lot. I would have to decide if I would keep the big loom, or sell it to be able to buy the smaller loom. Hard to decide......
Anyway, I'm hoping to find one at a decent price and close by. One that isn't abused, and won't need a bunch of new parts to it.
Off I go to spend Friday night with the dogs, cat and hubby. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
