Does this blog post title look familiar? I’m trying to build or create a posting routine. Since I’m generally not in the writing mood on the weekends, I decide that this title would be my weekend update. I might change it later on but for now, it’s staying. Haha.
On Saturday I spent the morning at Maker’s Mercantile, I seriously love this place. I enjoyed their Saturday morning breakfast, a cup of coffee and knitted for a while. After that I finally gave the dog a bath. She hides from me after every bath, I just don’t get it. She needed it pretty bad though and as much as she hates it, she stunk!
Saturday was also the Sounders game against the Whitecaps. I was looking forward to the game. We COULD have taken home the Cascadia cup. The majority of our starters were back, things were looking up. Apparently the team did not get that memo. We have been on a losing streak, I think in the last 8 games we have won 1. The games we do lose, we lose it in the last 5+ mins of the game. It’s tough to watch your team lose but even worse when you know they are great players that are playing like shit. I’d like to pick on our midfield, because they really are playing the worst but it’s a team effort and they need to get back into fighting form. To make things worse, every time the Whitecaps scored, they would run over to their sideline and take a quick water break. How rude is that??? I get celebrating and encourage it, but what they did was a time waster and uncalled for. If I was a sounder player I would be fired up for the Concacaf game we have against them on Wednesday. Okay now I’m riled up again, MOVING ON!
Sunday was a slow day. I played some DragonAge and The Sims 4. I received an email about 7 free days for my World of Warcraft account. Contemplating doing that just to play my beloved character again for 7 days. I raided M-Th for about 4 years and the end of Wrath and beginning of Cata killed my love of the game. I would play that game casually if there was no sub but I just don’t have the same time or money like I used to.
After breaking from computer games, I did some spot cleaning in the dining room. It’s looking nice and clear. I did a Harry Potter marathon on Sunday as I played games and cleaned. I really need to read those books. My book club has told me in the past they are thinking of giving me the boot because I have NOT read them yet. They are on my list…..so let me stayyyy. Plus who would lead if I was gone!
Sunday night I went over my planning. I was getting stuff together for my book club meeting on Friday and realized that this Friday is the last meeting one our members will be going to. She has this fabulous opportunity and will be moving away and I really want to do something nice for her. Turns out she’s going to miss the meetup but I think my idea is easier if she is not there anyways. I’m planning on getting a farewell card for the group to sign and then taking a group picture. Just something for her to remember us by. I also wanted to do a farewell package from us. I sent an email to my book club members asking for their help in filling out and coming up with Open When letter ideas. I have a few ideas but I’m excited to see if anyone else came up with something.
