How Long is a Long Weekend?

On Monday, there's no school because of President's Day. So just how long is a long weekend?


  • Long enough to go to Costco and buy laundry detergent, coffee and dog treats (to bribe the dogs) and a big apple pie (to bribe the kids).
  • Long enough to wash some hand knits in the kitchen sink. (Shown drying on the lid of my washer. The sweater is LLBean, by the way.)


  • Long enough to do 9 loads of laundry on Saturday.

  • Long enough to fill up my new Namaste Laguna knitting bag from The Loopy Ewe. (Hey, it wasn't yarn!)

  • Long enough to play in the snow before it melts with the rain that is coming.

  • Long enough for a birthday dinner out on Monday with Buddy Bill who won't tell me where we're going!

  • Long enough to play (much too long!) on Ravelry. A Cleveland Indians Fans group has been added. NOTE: Stitch n Pitch July 10!! Stitch n Pitch Calendar

  • Long enough to sit and knit. And nap.

  • Long enough to take Absent-Minded Professor to a friend's to play all day. (Hooray!)

  • Long enough to work on plans for Buddy Bill and I to take the kids to Niagara Falls at the end of June. (Hey, if that doesn't scare him off, nothing will!)

What are you doing with your weekend?

Sounds like you have lots of fun planned!

I'm also doing laundry, but squeezing in some knitting, another SnB group, and lunch with my aunt. And maybe a movie on Sunday while it rains our slush away. :)

Long enough to R-E-L-A-X and enjoy life just a little bit, eh?

Have fun on your birthday, Karen!
