A Wowser of a Weekend!
We're running the full gamut of activities this weekend. Here's where I'll be today - and I'm SOOOOOOOOOOO excited. Not that most people would think a knitting conference was 'exciting'. It likely conjures up mental images of a bunch of old spinster-looking ladies sitting around with needles and balls of yarn, knitting and purling while they enjoy a spot of tea. I'm going with two friends, one teaches occupational therapy at a local university and the other is a retired burn surgeon. Both are a bit sassy, and we're ready to have some F.U.N. I've been saving all that money I've made from Craig's List lately, stuffing it in my 'allowance' envelope, so I'm ready to buy some yarn! They're supposed to have demonstrations, classes, etc. I was a bit disappointed to learn there will be no live alpacas visiting. I've wanted a live sheep for a pet for years so I would have really enjoyed visiting the alpacas. It would have been fun to meet the source of so much of the yarn I buy. Being a newbie knitter (four months), I'm thrilled to get to visit one of these so near my home, and of course my wonderful yarn shop, Bloomin Yarns, will be there, and I've got the 10% off coupon Michelle featured in her monthly newsletter.

Then Don and Jeremy are wiring the storage room, lights in the closets and a few extra outlets. I'm a girl who loves all sorts of things that need to be plugged in. Next we're ordering in pizzas for the workers and the women who love them, then off to church. Right from there we're going to see a great chick flick, "There Will Be Blood". I know, but you have to let the men pick the movie now and then. As long as there's a large bucket of popcorn involved I'm good to go for most movies, and I can always close my eyes. I don't normally choose a movie with the word "Blood" in it. We've heard this is really, really good, in a bloody sort of way - Oscars material.

After that, Sunday morning, we'll sleep in til the week's weariness has worn off, then we're off to breakfast out. Speaking of blood and being knit together, right after that we're going to see this:

It's the "Bodies" Exhibit at the Carnegie Science Center. I've gotten mixed reviews from friends, but my husband (who was pre-med in college) asked for this for his Christmas gift. So we're off to spend a day at the Science Center, which is always fun in itself. Real bodies, treated respectfully, showing God's amazing work in creating us.

So it should be a fabulous weekend, stuffed to the brim with all sorts of activities celebrating a zest for life. Hope yours is just as great!
