Today was a lazy Saturday. I slept in until noon. Got up, putzed around. Eventually Jamie and I watched the movie Man of the Year, the new Robin Williams flick. I really enjoyed it. I am a huge Robin Williams fan. It was a really good comedy.
I worked on my step-mother-in-law's crochet purse while watching the movie.
Then, we chilled a bit, I watched some Intervention show on A&E about a girl who is only 23 years old and 50,000$US in debt. She's a shopaholic. This episode made me NOT want to buy the Lorna's Laces colorway I was watching on ebay. Actually, I was watching about 4-5 different colorways, and went and deleted them after that episode was over. I decided that I do not NEED another skein of Lorna's Laces, even though I WANTED another skein of the yarn. There is a huge difference between need and want. I feel good about my decision!
This evening Jamie and I watched the Habs get creamed by the Bruins 4-2. It was not a good game tonight. I don't know what was wrong with Huet. It's very possible that the Habs 5 game winning streak got to their heads, and they let their guard down. I guess they can't win them all, right?
After the Habs game, Jamie and I started to watch the movie Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, the 2nd movie. Just over an hour into it, I shut it off, Jamie was passing out on the couch, so I sent him to bed, and I decided to come online, check my email, blog and now I'm going to go crawl into bed and start reading Bed Rest by Sarah Bilston, which I borrowed from my brother's girlfriend. It looks cute, and I didn't want to spend almost 20$ on a hardcover, for a book that I'll only read once. I had started reading the book Confessions of a Supermom by Melanie Hauser, but it turns out it's a little "out there" and I just can't get into it. It's just not realistic fiction and actually, I just can't follow the writing. A mother who gets super cleaning powers? What the fuck is this garbage? LOL. So, onto a new book.
Tomorrow I'll photograph the purse for my step-MIL, and show you the progress. I have no pattern, I'm inventing it as I go. I just wanted to make her a nice little handbag, and I know she's just love it!
I've picked out yarn to make myself the Column of Leaves Scarf. I am going to use the yarn that I picked up in Vigo, Spain this past September. The author of the pattern suggests that it would look nicer in a solid color rather than the variegated that she made it in, as it would show the leaves a lot better. I think the 100% pink lana merino extrafina will be perfect for this scarf, and I have just enough yarn for it!
Tomorrow Jamie and I are planning on watching the movie Invincible, it looks really good. It's with Mark Wahlberg and Greg Kinnear, and that's all the names I recognize.
I can't believe the countdown to D-day (due day) is LESS than 20 now! 19 days left... Wow. If Sean isn't born early, and make it to the single digit countdown, I think that's when I will get really anxious. I think I must start trying all those things that may be myths.... Spicey foods, walking, maybe even that word that rhymes with hex...?? Do these actually induce labor? There are a whole list of "labor inducors" and I'm definitely NOT trying castor oil.... just the thought of that makes me ill...!
Bed time with a good book, goodnight!
