And a holiday weekend, at that. Memorial Day weekend is always a bittersweet affair to me, since it's really to commemorate those whose lives have been lost in battle. But at the same time, it has come to mean the onset of summer and of laid back family time. So I enjoy the weekend, but I keep in mind those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
What plans do I have on the docket for this weekend? Well P. is going camping with his school class. K. needs to work most of the weekend, save for Monday, when we plan to make pizza for some friends. D. may show up now and then, at the very least on Monday, since she knows a good pizza when she eats--I mean sees--one.
Because of this, I will likely spend my time doing what I enjoy, interspersed with work around the house that I'll need to do for that pizza party. I just had a brainstorm of an idea for the revision I'm doing for PROPHET WITHOUT HONOR, which came when I began the rewrite of Subplot #3. Ah...a new suspect, and a great reason for this person to be the real murderer. Is it the real murderer? Well, you'll just have to wait and see. But I look forward to this rewrite, even though it means a lot of hard work for me.
And for knitting, I'm busily knitting away on a Norwegian sweater for P. Leave it to me to get it done just in time for summer. I'm also working on some shorts (yes, you read that right), and a shawl. Since I'm ADKD, I always have lots of projects in various stages of completion.
I have lots to do this weekend, so it's time to get this party started. Wishing you a good and meaningful Memorial Day weekend.
