I have really been taking it easy this weekend! I am worn out from trying to get report cards finished and just generally keeping up with school. My tummy pain is back, which has now caused some back pain. So since I have a long weekend this weekend, I thought taking it as easy as I can should be the game plan. We had a work day at school on Friday, so I got a lot done. I had dinner with a good friend mine Friday night and I have been taking it easy ever since!
Yesterday, I ran a few quick errands and then stocked up on DVD's. I haven't watched or even gone to the movies a lot lately, so I had some catching up to do. And y'all know how much I love to watch movies! A few weeks ago, I became a beta tester for Redbox for their new streaming service. For my trouble, they gave me 4 credits to rent free movies. Since I am ending my free trail this week (it can't compare to Netflix) I thought I would use my credits to check out some movies. So far I have watched Hope Springs.. cute. Trouble With the Curve- really good. 2016: Obama's America ... VERY thought provoking. Next up for tonight is Battleship and then The Best Exoitic Marigold Hotel.
I also casted on for a new knitting project. With my back hurting it is hard to knit for too long, but this is a quick project. It is called The 3 Hour Cowl and it is a free download from Ravelry. Whenever I start a new knitting project, I always like to peruse Ravelry and see what yarns folks have used. I am on a yarn budget and can't always use a fancy yarn. I saw one of the cowls made from cotton yarn, which is perfect since I live at the beach. I am using Lily Sugar 'n Cream's Country Stripes to work on this cowl. I love the beachy colors and I think I will get some great wear out of this cowl.
The stitch pattern is just three rows, and once you have knit it once you have it memorized. It does knit up fast! Pitty Pat is still waking up at 3 a.m. and wanting to have a party. This morning I just got up and started knitting. I should be able to cast this off tonight. I am sure if I could sit for 3 hours this would already be finished, but I have had to move around today to keep my back happy!
That's about all that is going on here! I am about to watch Once Upon a Time... one of my favorite shows and then watch another movie. We do not have school tomorrow due to the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday, so I am going to stay up a little later tonight.
What are you up to this weekend?
p.s. Have you made your own Pinteresting Lotion yet? YOU NEED TO! My feet feel like I just had a pedicure. And folks. That is a January miracle! This lotion is great!
