My Weekend and Early Christmas

As everyone knows Friday was awful. Saturday was okay, thank goodness. We worked around the house doing little things like cleaning, mowing and oil changes. Everything went fairly fine, but I was still in a funk.

I later watched a movie "Sweet November" with Keanu Reeves and Charlize Theron. Fairly good love story, with a strange ending. Throughout the movie Charlize's character wore a shawl/scarf, a different color to go with what she was wearing. I studied it and decided to give it a try. I started crocheting it that night.

Sunday..the day I have been waiting for. Hubby promised we would go visit our best friends. Something I did Saturday, threw my back out. I still don't know what I did. I rolled out of bed, sat on the floor for a good 10 minutes. Hubby served me coffee on the floor. With the help of hubby, I finally made it to the chair. It started to rain pretty hard, but I was determined that my back nor the rain was going to keep me from getting to go to my BFFs. I havent seen her in about two months!

I had to go to the store first, to get some yarn. I have asked my BF to do a baby blanket for my nephew, due in January. She does this stitch, that I have tried but looks nothing like hers. I tried to get hubby to go in for me, but he is stupid when it comes to yarn. I was kinda peeved with him for not even thinking that maybe I might need his help cause of my back. Oh well, can't expect too much.

I was showing my BF my new project and suddenly she comes out of her room with a present for me. It was a shawl! She's funny you came over today, I just finished it last night. Ironic, I started mine just about the time she finished hers.
Here's my present:

My BF and I started playing a game and about an hour later my head felt like it was going to explode. A migraine had snuck up on me.

Hubby was outside with the men watching the race in the "Man Shed". He is usually the one to come and get me, asking if I am ready to go home. I felt weird going out to ask him. I felt bad about not staying for supper as we usually do, but seriously my head hurt so bad I could barely open my eyes. I still haven't figured out, what triggered it.

I really need to put some meds in my purse! After we got home and I took some meds, my migraine was down to barely exsistant. If I had had them in my purse I wouldn't have had to cut our visit short.

Anyway, isn't my present pretty?

First, sorry you were feeling poorly. And that I missed this post! Migraines suck!!! Had them since I was 16. Now, thankfully they only strike about once a year. I love the movie "Sweet November". So sad though. And your shawl is too gorgeous!! I wish I could knit or crochet but I only end up making a mess. Grr. It defeats me!

Your present is gorgeous! And so is the one you're making.
Yes, meds in the purse young lady! I get migraines, and I don't go to the freaking corner without my meds, just in case...

Spot...Thanks, better late than never. I get migraines about 4 times a year, I think they are seasonal allergy related. I was taught crochet real young, but I always wanted to learn knit.
I still can't get over that shawl, I love wearing it around the house.

Maureen...Thanks! I know, I know (shaking my head at myself). LOL
