|Finally! Weaving my Holiday Place Mats on the new to me loom!|
What I love the most about weekends is the opportunity to live without the clock--to wake up, to eat, to craft or even clean as the mood strikes and to mix up these tasks in a bit here and a bit there. No catching a few minutes of spinning while keeping one eye on the clock so I know when to charge out of the how to head to work. No eating lunch at a prescribed time. On weekends, I can graze among my craft projects--weave some on one loom, do a bit of carding, weave on another loom, maybe throw a load of laundry in. No time constraints.
We do run errands on the weekend, but even those are done when we get to them. The DH just asked me when I wanted him start the charcoal on the grill, so I asked him when did he want to eat? Of course, asking me is husband-code for "I'm hungry. I want to start the grill now." I've figured out the correct response. Who needs a clock to tell us when to start a grill? Stomachs work fine.

Yep, there is nothing like a timeless weekend to help me enjoy my crafts. And when there are free minutes during the time constrained workweek, I can still carve out niches to relax and enjoy.
My back is much better now! It was a slow start this week but now I've pretty much resumed all my favorite activities---you know weaving, spinning, carding etc.
