Everyone in my family knows I collect opinions and then make my own decision and I’ve decided to use you guys for some opinions:)
We had a dusting of snow and a whole ton of rain overnight where I live. Everything above me got a lot of snow. We had a bit of a problem when text messages didn’t go through this morning, but did finally meet up for a wet, quick walk at the river this morning. We decided it was a much better idea just to go for breakfast.
This evening I got a quick Hallmark workout in, though I must admit I wasn’t feeling very energetic. I did a minute of skaters in between: crunches, pushups, squats, plié squats, burpees, mountain climbers, dips, froggers, high knees, curtsy lunges, and lateral lunges.
I have been working on a toque for a co-worker. She picked the thistle beanie off of Ravelry and I have knit it twice today. The first time I had gone down to a size 5mm needle to get gauge, but didn’t like how stiff the knitted product was turning out. The second time I have gone back to a size 6mm needle and will hopefully get a slouching hat. Thankfully she figures her head is bigger than mine so the extra in gauge will hopefully not matter too much.
I visited my friend C today along with Lyndsay. C lost her dad on Thursday night. Here is my conundrum.
C sent three of us text messages telling us that the prayers were this coming Friday night and the funeral is at 12pm on Saturday. Today I learned the prayers are open casket and then on Saturday there is the mass at 12, followed by the internment at 1:45 and then a wake that goes until 6:30.
The other two ladies at work don’t think they want to go to any of it. I don’t particularly want to (who WANTS to go to a funeral) but kind of feel like I should go to show support for my friend. I have known C for three years- we worked together for one year and have worked out once a week for a year and socialized a bit. I had never met her father.
So please tell me what you all would do. I would appreciate any opinions:)
I listened to a new to me podcast today called Yarniacs. It was quite cute! I bookmarked a few patterns on Ravelry from their suggestions and I liked how simple their show was to follow.
I also watched the Hallmark movie Grounded for Christmas. It was quite cute and displayed a lot of traditional Christmas elements.
I wonder when I will stop watching Christmas movies for the year. Not yet as I’m off to watch another.
