It was a busy weekend and I'm tired today. We worked late on Friday, went shopping, and watched Bullett.

Saturday, [insanejournal.com profile] jebra had the tires on the car rotated and did some shopping while I stayed home and caught up on Quicken. After dinner, we, along with [insanejournal.com profile] mbumby, went to a house-party. I hung out in the living room with my crochet hook and yarn along with the knitters and a few other folks. I had to go home after my allergy meds wore off, but I had fun and got to see a few folks, so as far as I was concerned, it was all good.

After breakfast on Sunday the three of us went to the zoo. It was cold and a little overcast, but between [insanejournal.com profile] jebra and myself, we got a few good photos. We were hungry again by the time we left, so we drove over the The Chicken Shack for lunch. Afterwards, [insanejournal.com profile] jebra and [insanejournal.com profile] mbumby dropped me off at the house before doing a little shopping. I downloaded the photos we'd taken, startled a kettle for tea, and settled in with my crochet. We watched a Columbo, then it was time for [insanejournal.com profile] mbumby to go home. I continued crocheting until I'd completed two sections of the afghan I'm making for the Moonridge Zoo auction, then whipped together the following scrapbook page. By the time I was done I was too tired to do anything other than crawl into bed, so that's exactly what I did.

Last weekend was frustrating. I spent my time trying to wrap up a bunch of projects but didn't knock a single one off my to-do list. By the time we finally got home Sunday night (we'd gone in to the office since I needed lots of table space for what I was working on), I found myself wishing I could rewind the clock.

This weekend I didn't expect to get anything done. For one thing, it was SEMGS. Plus I wanted to catch up on sleep. Contrary to my expectations, I managed to get some sleep, to catch up on dishes and the laundry, clean the upstairs bathroom, and knit the equivalent of one Jayne hat. Plus I managed to take a decent photo of our incredibly-difficult-to-shoot cats.

This weekend has been nice, but it certainly wasn't the one I expected. We planned to leave work early on Friday to drive over to Ionia and meet up with my family. My nephew Tommy is home on leave from the Army and all of us planned to have dinner at the VFW. However, a big snow storm rolled in during the early morning hours and not only weren't we sure Tommy would be able to fly in as planned, my mom advised us that the plows had not yet been out and the roads in the area were next to impassable. She was concerned enough that she insisted we not make the trek.

Meanwhile, [insanejournal.com profile] jebra received a notice that his new recording gear would arrive at the office via FedEx. So we made the drive to the office, which was slow but otherwise uneventful. Our lot had not yet been plowed, but that wasn't entirely unexpected, particularly not with the rate at which the snow was falling. The FedEx truck arrived in the late afternoon. We expected a shipment from UPS as well, only when [insanejournal.com profile] jebra checked the UPS website late in the day, the site reported that delivery had been attempted but the business was closed. Since we'd been there *all* day, we knew that wasn't true. I fought my way through UPS' voicemail system spoke with an agent, whereupon I learned that the shipment wasn't the one we needed for the weekend. By that point, it was far too late in the day to leave for Ionia. And work's parking lot had so much snow on it I wasn't sure we'd make it out to the road. I called the snowplow company again and was told they were nearby and would arrive soon. They did, then it was off to Walmart to buy alergy medicine for me and a camera bag for Gabe (to store his new recorder in). After Walmart we finally headed out to get some dinner. We want to go to Zorba's, our new favorite family restaurant, but they were closed. Outback was our second choice, but on the way there we passed by the Clawson Steakhouse. I've been promising [insanejournal.com profile] jebra we'd go there sometime and this seemed to be perfect opportunity.

In retrospect, we'd have have been happier at Outback. The Clawson Steakhouse seemed to me to the sort of small nightclub you'd have found in Las Vegas during the late 1950s or early 60s. There was a live band playing the music of Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra, and others of that ilk. I wouldn't have minded the music nearly as much had it been played at reasonable level; it was too loud for the room and gave me a headache. [insanejournal.com profile] jebra disliked it for another reason -- there was some sort of problem with their sound equipment and it produced loud buzzing hum the entire time. The food was okay, but not what I hoping for and not good enough to warrant the prices listed on the menu.

It was quite late when arrived home, and we still had to shovel and unpack the car (since we'd packed for an overnight stay in Ionia).

[insanejournal.com profile] jebra woke us up bright and early the next morning. He fed me breakfast, hustled me into the shower, got the car packed for the concert, and drove us to Howell for their Tuba Christmas. While he was at the rehearsal, I walked to one of my favorite yarn shops, Stitch In Time. I had fun browsing through their amazing collection of knitting books and talking with the owner. When I thought to check the time, I discovered nearly two hours had flown by. I made my purchases (a book on knitting socks and a skein of yarn), then walked to the bar/restaurant to meet up with [insanejournal.com profile] jebra and have lunch. [insanejournal.com profile] mbumby joined us for lunch and the concert.

The concert went well and [insanejournal.com profile] jebra got his recording.

Afterwards, we drove home. I downloaded the photos I'd taken, watched a bit of tv, then went to bed.

This morning I slept in, ate a late breakfast, and then came out to the living room and got comfortable here on my side of the couch. I've been here, more or less, all day. I finished knitting a fish for my brother's cats, sewed together a mess of felt fish, sorted through yesterday's photos, and downloaded a heap of free scrapbooking stuff.

On Saturday, the South-East Michigan Gluttony Society gathered in Southfield. Someone noticed the Roomba sitting in the corner and asked the owner for his opinion on how well it works. This lead to a demonstration, which turned hilarious when someone else grabbed the stuffed pillow Dalek Tegan crocheted and put it on top. The image below doesn't do it justice -- this is one of those things you have to see in motion to fully appreciate. (But you can click on the image to take a closer look if you're interested.)

After getting my allergy shot this morning, I went up to Auburn Hills to see if there was anything worth shooting at the Cars Inc. Open House. There were plenty of beautifully restored classic cars, but the best part of the excursion was getting a ride on the Kriewall Swing Bike.
