Busy weekend

Phew! I am tired after a very productive weekend. I am almost glad that I have to go to work tomorrow. I need a break from the cleaning.
I scrubbed the window screens and put them back up after cleaning the windows. I weeded the veggie garden space ( about 10 ft. by 20 ft.) and two other shrub beds. I washed all of the dirty clothes and hung them on the line then put them away. DH and I cleaned out the bird bath fountain and the back water garden and got the pumps working. We hauled out a lot of the summer outdoor furniture and cleaned  it. The bathrooms were cleaned, the kitchen cabinets and appliances were scrubbed within and inch of their ...... Cords. ; ). Linens were washed, dinners cooked and cleaned up. I am TIRED.

I also managed to do a lot of plying - over half of the singles (Grafton Batt) are plied and what stopped me was the back pain. I spindle spun some Shetland and would have done more except for the back pain. I turned the heel on Brian's SKYP sock. I am working my way down the foot now. The end is in sight!

I completed 2 more welts on the Swirl Sweater (it doesn't photograph well) and played around with some fiber prep. I flicked some Tunis fiber, flicked and carded Hog Island fiber (thanks, Melanie). I flicked some teeswater locks, too. It was a cloudy, foggy morning but by mid afternoon the sun had come out and it was wonderful to sit in the sun and play for a bit in between cleaning. (oh, yes, the oven got cleaned, too).

I didn't get the pictures taken that I had hoped to get to. I am now settled comfortably in bed, getting ready to knit Topiary. Sleep well.

That is a busy weekend! I love them, though. It feels so good to have gotten so much accomplished. (At least, until the back pain catches up with you.) Hope you got a good nights' sleep!
