Here we are again, back at Monday. The laundry is laundering; the grocery shopping is done; the bills are paid. Another week ahead of me, ahh.
Mr. T finally arrived back home Saturday afternoon, tired and overworked. But, since Sunday was a nice sunny day (if a bit frigid), it gave us an opportunity to take some modeling shots of Miralda's Triangular Shawl, in between his working some more and our going to Nordstrom's to get him a new suit:
I really enjoyed working with the Wollmeise lace yarn. It's a good thing, too, because I was lucky enough to catch Thursday night's update and get four more skeins :)
Jr. Jr. had his first "official" basketball game on Friday night. His team, the Raptors, was playing the same team they scrimmaged against before the holidays, so there was a bit of a grudge match going on. This time the Raptors played so well! There was a lot of teamwork, passing to each other and moving the ball around. The ended up winning something like 27 to 12. A lot of the kids scored, including Jr. Jr., who scored once and made one out of two free throws. So there were some happy Raptors this weekend :)
I finished reading Brooklyn, by Colm Toibin. It was a very quiet, almost meditative book about a young woman who comes of age over the time she leaves her family in Ireland to start a new life in Brooklyn. A quick but enjoyable read.
I've started reading A Friend of the Family, by Lauren Grodstein. So far it's ok. I'm not too far into it, so it's hard to say yet how I will like it. The writing is good and it keeps me reading, but I'm waiting to see whether plot, characterization, etc. keep up.
Mr. T leaves again this weekend, perhaps for two whole weeks. Not fun for me or for the boys (or for him, for that matter), but that's life in the big city.
