I don't like Mondays

And while I have never shot anyone because of it - I really don't like Mondays. Weekends on the other hand I rather enjoy. This weekend especially. Despite being totally broke (see Friday's post) I had a great weekend.

Saturday, I met my girlfriend Sharon for lunch to celebrate her passing the state boards. Then we did what we do best - shopping! Or at least she shopped, I enabled. Afterwards it was back to her condo where we proceeded to talk till 1:30 in the morning. Now Sharon lives in the nether reaches of Suffolk county and it is over an hour drive from her place to mine, but thanks to the lack of traffic on the LIE I made it home in just about an hour.

On Sunday, I did laundry and waited for David to come home from camping, poor man - he really is too old to be sleeping on the floor of a tent. I may have to buy him an air mattress for Christmas. Once he was home safe and sound, I drove over to Marilyn's to see her vacation pix - she and her hubby went to Rome, Florence and Venice. It was almost the same trip David and I took, except we couldn't go to Venice because of flooding, so we just stayed in Rome and Florence for an extra couple of Days each. It was fun looking at her pictures - some where almost identical to pictures we had taken. She brought me back a lovely ruana from Florence and beautiful beaded crochet shawl in Venice. She was laughing, after she bought the shawl, she realized it had a tag that said made in China. I told her it was bought it Venice - that' s all that matters.

Obviously I did no knitting this weekend - but it was lovely just spending time with my girlfriends. What with life always getting in the way - it was nice to have some me time with my friends!

I have dropped off a roll of film and as soon as I get it back I will have pictures.

I have a dislike for mondays as well. The only thing good about Mon is that I don't have to be to work before noon.

Time with friends is always so nice. I hope you have a great week!
