Mondays. Most people hate them, right? And granted they aren’t always easy to get through, I quite like them. I wouldn’t say they are my favorite day of the week, but I typically don’t have a big problem with Mondays.
Maybe it’s because I don’t work. I don’t have to get up and get on my way somewhere. I no longer have school, so I don’t have assignments due on Mondays. The commissary is closed, which typically means I put off going on post till a day I can stop at the commissary. I get my house back to myself and get to clean the mess my husband and I (mostly him) seem to make every weekend.
So today has been one of those days. Those relaxing Mondays. I woke up with a pep in my step. I got a bit of cleaning done in the house. I had one of my favorite meals for lunch (taco salad!). I did a bit of blog reading.
And then I got to knitting in a nice, slightly lit room. My new favorite Yankee Candle was burning…Orange Creamsicle. Just yum is the only way to describe that. Watching The Knit Girllls Videocast all the while….catching up. About 2 months behind! And I finished something. You really did hear that right. Something I just started yesterday!!! Okay, okay, I’m not that awesome. It was just a washcloth. And really just a practice to see if I like the feel of the yarn before I order some in more lively colors. I want to use the washcloths to bathe the baby. So naturally I don’t want to use the scratchy cotton someone might use for washing their dishes. And it turned out wonderful! I’ll be ordering a few other colors from KnitPicks today of their Simply Cotton Worsted.
