A lot of little random

Another crazy week here at The Funny Farm. Work was busy with some big meetings that made it a kind of stressful week. I was getting the boardroom set up on Wednesday and was opening one of the big folding tables. I wanted to make sure it was snapped in secure (ironically so it wouldn't collapse) and leaned on it to make sure. Well, I'm sure by now you've figured out that it did indeed collapse - right on my leg. Now I'm sporting a big green and purple bruise, so no short skirts this week. And believe it or not, the work week went downhill from there.

Luckily my friends came to the rescue. The next night Deanne, Katherine and I went to a neighboring town for supper. It was the first really nice evening so we were able to eat on the outdoor patio.

After a little pasta, pizza and girl talk we strolled up the street, poked into a few stores and then settled at The Bridge Street Cafe for a mochachino. A very nice relaxing evening and exactly what I needed.

And I'm pleased to report that there are very few empty spaces left on the rug. I may not get it finished tonight but I'm very close.

I had hoped to finish it today but the sun was shining (finally) so I lounged around on the deck with a book for most of the afternoon. Sunny weekends have been rare so I didn't want to waste it.

  1. My goodness Kim, you sure had an eventful week. I'm glad to know that you didn't break your leg in the mishaps. It could have been much worst and you would have to be wearing a leg cast in the summer heat. That would have been just awful.

    I'm glad that your good friends are always there to pull you away to some nice place wher you are relaxing.

    Good for you on getting most of your sunflower rug done. You are a fast hooker.

    I hope that the rest of June will be kind to you.

  2. That pasta sure looks tempting.

  3. rug is lookin sooooo good.


  4. OUCH!!! Hopefully you'll heal quickly so you can get back to those short skirts :)
    Be sure to post your finished rug.
    Hugs :)

  5. Oh no, poor you, hope you heal your pretty rug, great, Francine.

  6. It sounds wonderful way to spend a sunny day. Too bad about the table not to mention your poor leg!! I am covered in bruises this weekend after all of the boxes I moved last week. It must have been just that kind of week. Your rug looks fantastic. I love all of the bright colors. I hope you get it finished.
    I hope this week is a good week. So nice to get caught up with you.
    Bye for now,

  7. I don't think I'd be able to put a table together so I'm sure I would have probably thrown my back out doing that! lol Dinner looked delish! Your rugs are always beautiful! Hope your mom is doing well.

  8. Sorry about your leg..ouch! Your friends sound great and that food looks even greater! Glad you could relax in the sun. It's always best to take time for yourself...the rug looks really pretty!

  9. Owieeee Kim! I have a husband with a hurt back so I am thinking my week will be like your week last week! The weekend was not fun. The food up there looks delicious. I am ready to run away.. :) Those colors really are beautiful in your rug!

  10. Ouch! So sorry about your bruise! It sounds as though you have had a wonderful week-end!

  11. oh no so sorry about your bruise. But how wonderful to have friends to get rid of the stress with. It all looks so yummy.
    You are working like crazy on that rug can't wait to see it all done.
