I got so much done during my 4-day weekend last week! Due to a migraine I had most of the time Tuesday through yesterday, I'm worn out now and just want to sit and crochet all weekend.

I'm working on an afghan for my son's girlfriend - he said she liked bold colors and abstract art so I'm making a granny square blanket with each square a different pattern and different color or set of colors. Originally, I was going to use Burgundy to tie it all together, but now I'm leaning toward Black because it's a much better unifying color.

If it isn't rainy this weekend and if the sun is out and if it isn't cold and if I feel like it, I plan to get some or all of the gardening tasks done this weekend that I didn't get done last weekend due to continuous rainy days.

If there's a sunshine day this weekend, I also want to make curtains for my office window from the Hawaiian-patterned fabric I bought last weekend (sunshine means I don't have to sit in a darkish room while I nervously use the sewing machine!).

So far, though, sitting on my butt crocheting sounds good - alternating with eating, snacking, watching TV, and sleeping of course!
