I realize that will completely lose the sympathy of anyone who reads this site when I tell them this:

I am going away again this weekend. Yes, another R&R weekend. Yes, I just had one last weekend. And yes, I hardly need them considering what an enchanted life I lead to begin with.

This time, I am heading to the Bershires to the Kripalu center for a weekend of yoga and knitting.

I am going with my good friend Ricki and we will hit the road the minute we put all the kids on the bus tomorrow morning. I will have lots to share when I get back – must remember to pack the camera.

Today I will be working at Granny’s. I will be slaving away with Kathleen. No doubt we will be having lots of laughs. I have been enjoying this job, although it is probably not a good sign to show up at work with a shopping list! In addition to getting an employee’s discount, NY State has a no tax week at the moment and it extends to yarn! It is only fiscal responsibility that is driving my purchases …. I will be saving money. The term for spending money in order to save money is spave.

I shall be spaving all over the place today.

  1. My MIL lives in the Berkshires and is a big devotee of Karen Allen (I got one of her cashmere scrap balls for xmas) I hope you savor every moment and then rub our noses in it next week.

    Also, I just wanted to say that I’m so sorry about your kitty and send hugs and tears for you. (I should have done it sooner, but this is the first time all week I’ve been able to pull up your blog)

  2. So you are Spaving on Skanks? How utterly fabulous! Spave a skank for me Ann! Oh, I think I might have to adopt that phrase. It’s just too… Umm… Illiterative… Yeah… That’s it…

    Have a wonderous weekend and enjoy the time away guilt free! You deserve it! ;)

  3. Okay, I’m jealous. Oh, but do have fun. Don’t you DARE forget your camera! I’ll get over it and can’t wait to be regaled with stories!

    Oh, and Starman is one of my favorite movies.

  4. Shoulda brought the camera and took a pic of the bloody finger–you planned that with the whole bathroom cleaning thing–didn’tcha? I didn’t read your blog this am. Sneaky. It was fun though. Shoulda took a pic with the camera phone. Sigh. Have fun this w.e.

  5. Ah, the joys of spaving! Your FA in PA and I use that term regularly since you introduced it to use a few years ago. Have a great weekend!
