Four whole days!

I have a four-day weekend, and I am so excited about it! Here's what I'm going to do:

1. Sleep in
I saw another doctor this week (#3 in the Great Shoulder Adventure, in case you're interested). He noted my bag-eyed state, took pity on me...and prescribed something to help me sleep. I'm trying the new med for the first time tonight. All fingers are crossed.

2. Make a purse
Honestly, I have kind of a love/hate relationship with sewing. You've heard "measure twice, cut once"? I usually measure four or five times, cut wrong, try not to swear, cry for a while, then make sure I have enough fabric to start it all again. Sometimes I have to just scrap the whole thing. But I found some really cool UK fabric on sale, and I hope to make a quilted purse to sell online. I've made several of these purses already, but that's no guarantee I will be able to do do it again.

3. Read 
You probably can't tell from my crummy photo, but this is my favorite reading spot. With my softest, warmest fleece throw, and two excellent Inspector Morse books from the library. I can't wait to curl up here for a few hours.

4. Nap
My favorite reading spot is also a good place to nap--especially if there is a warm puppy to cuddle. Sometimes they get tired of waiting for me, and just take over my napping spot for themselves.

5. Just running a little errand, no big deal
Uh oh. Patches just found out he has to go to the V-E-T tomorrow for some blood work. Looks like he has taken refuge under the bed. Don't worry, little guy! It's just a tiny poke.

So, those are my big plans. There is a chance that numbers 2 and 3 may take a backseat to number 4. How about you? What are you doing this weekend?

Oh, napping sounds good. I'll have a double helping of that.

feefifoto: Does it count as a nap if you've only been up for a couple of hours? 'Cuz I just woke up for the second time about 1/2 an hour ago.

Your plans for the long weekend sound absolutely delicious! I'm sitting right now in my favorite spot (couch under a blanket) and soon a warm kitty will saunter over here and make his home on top of me. I couldn't be happier if that's how I spent the whole weekend. This is what winter is made for.

Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!

Kathy: You're absolutely right. Why go out into the gross cold, when you can snuggle up indoors and nap with a nice furry critter?
