I had a total veg-out Saturday. (Well, maybe not total. I did manage to do some laundry but that’s practically nothing.) It’s been weeks since I’ve watched even a whole morning of HGTV, which used to be my weekend treat. Saturday I watched TV all day and much of it was HGTV. We skipped the real estate shows and some of the reruns and switched over to the History Channel and watched a few episodes of Pawn Stars and American Restoration. Then Saturday evening we watched a couple of bad sci-fi movies.
Even better, Number Two Son vegged out with me. He’s my perfect TV watching companion because we both take things pretty much the same way – making fun of and laughing at the mistakes and ridiculous pretensions but never too cynical, never “I’m so above all this crap.” It’s been a while since we sat and watched TV together. Most of his free time he spends on his computer. My husband was out hunting all day. He’s nice to watch TV with too but he could never sit still for that long.
Sunday was a bit less of a veg-out than Saturday. There was NFL football of course. I’m not sure how I feel about football anymore. I still enjoy some of the games but I feel like a fan without a team. When I’m watching a game I usually have a favorite between the two teams who are playing but, big picture, who goes to the Superbowl, I just don’t much care this year. You know, as long as it’s not the Patriots.
I will finally finish the quilt top today (it goes so slowly) and put the layers together no later than tomorrow. Then the really fun part starts. I get to start quilting. I want to go ahead and start the next top so it will be ready when I finish this quilt but I will probably wait until after Christmas. Cutting and piecing are not my favorite parts of quilting and I tend to procrastinate until I realize, “Oh no! I’m almost done with this quilt and I don’t have another top ready.”
