There are no exciting craft related projects going on with me this week. My right hand is hurting, so I'm taking a short break from knitting and drawing to heal. Nothing major, I just don't want to exacerbate it so I can lay out Olivia's new kitchen ideas in CAD.
Many of you know my slight obsession with appreciating my limbs, ever since Helena's mom told me in 10th grade, "At least you have arms and legs!" Well, damn right she was. I truly appreciate my hands, and what I can create with them. So no knitting, or excessive scrolling on the mouse.
Don't fret, I will stop by knitting circle anyway--to visit the gals and provide "entertainment" as I believe Mindy stated once.
In other news, I had two fantastic weekends in a row. Last weekend, we visited my cousin Amanda and her husband D in Harlem. They've been teasing me for five years that "Mike" does not exist. They loved him, and are finally convinced that he is not a hired actor. I also got my dog fix by spending time with their two rescued daschunds, Mr. and Mrs. Beasley.
Here's Mr. B saying, "Please rub my belly, Mike, even though I usually hate boys!"
Our good friend, Courtney, visited us from Montreal this weekend. She lived here before, so we enjoyed visiting her old haunts, eating pirogies at The Pub, walking around, and checking out a William Kentridge exhibit at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
They weren't in the mood for the Frida Kahlo exhibit, but I'm going to check it out soon. I did admire the paper banners that are decorating the PMA in her honor!
In the meantime, I'm keeping busy working out with my boss, studying Spanish again, and finding a bridesmaid's dress for Mike's sister's wedding.
