Day Sixty-Six

No photo today. I've been too lazy to come up with something to photograph, which is telling, as I've actually made quite a bit of progress on a couple different knits. The second sleeve of my unicorn sweater is moving along—it's not quite halfway done yet, but still, that's good progress—and I've passed the halfway point on the body of my tank top sample.

This weekend was mostly pretty quiet. Saturday morning my mum and I got up early to drive to the next big town near us to see if their Walmart had dog food, as ours has been out. My car hasn't gotten to go on the highway since early March, so it was nice to get her out for a drive. Alas, we didn't have any luck finding dog food, but my sister managed to score some in the city later in the weekend, so we're set for a while now.

When we got back, I pretty much went straight back to bed. When I finally woke up again, I read in bed, until late afternoon, when I went to mum's for egg rolls and special rice for dinner. Then I had a bubble bath and afterwards I watched some cartoons and knit a bit. And that was Saturday.

Yesterday was also fairly nap-heavy, but I managed to get a pan of brownies made and two dozen chocolate cupcakes. I had the idea a couple weeks ago to make chocolate cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and keeping them in the freezer so I could grab a quick piece of cake when I wanted. Today I'll make the frosting, and I'm also hoping to bake bread, as it's been a while since I've done that.

Overall, not a bad weekend. This week I'm starting a time-consuming, detail-oriented, somewhat boring work project, which, while not as interesting as some of what I do, is very important, and will give me a chance to catch up on some podcasts.

Hang in there. You're doing your best, and that's enough. We are all trying to be patient and generous, even though it's hard sometimes. I love you all, specially and individually.
