Happy 4th!

Hope everyone has a nice long weekend! (or at least a day off, if you are not in a 'weekend off' type of job!).

My plans for the weekend? Well, today will be the sewing of Summerlin (hopefully!) - I washed/preshrunk the bodice and shirt fabric yesterday, so now I just need to iron and sew! I'll wait until it is finished to share how proud I am of my cleverness in the button for the bodice. This evening our friend has a big annual 4th BBQ & fireworks show. And by big, I mean BIG! He and several neighbors spend an ungodly amount of money during a trip to PA to buy fireworks and set of a display that is bigger than a lot of small town shows I've been to.

Tomorrow I have to get back to yard work. I started mulching a few weeks ago, but didn't buy enough so the job is only half done. I also need to tie up the roses that Jake built a small trellis for and clean up a lot of pine straw and leaves that have built up in the backyard garden beds. Saturday will also include some interior cleaning, in preparation for the visit from FILs :)

Sunday hopefully just a small amount of cleaning during the day and then, the best part of my weekend - a 60 minute Aromatherapy massage!! I'm embarrassed to say how long I've had a gift certificate to the Dillards spa, but I'm finally using it. AND, Jake is making dinner, so I can come home from my 4:30 massage and do nothing but relax on the couch and knit the rest of the evening :)

Hey, I'll give you half the yarn the next time I come; I think I'm out of town for the July meeting, but I'll get there in August. Or maybe I can mail it to you?

Hope you had a wonderful 4th. I have a gift certificate to a spa...and I'll bet I've had it longer than you. I hope that massage clears all your worries away.
