We are supposed to have a rainy gray weekend here in The Flat Lands. Everyone is kind of grumpy about it since we've been horribly spoiled by the spring we've had so far. Rain or no rain, my weekend will be bright and shiny. Tomorrow is Alpaca Fest people! Literally hundreds of alpacas and creas to snog and snuggle! This year I vow (as I have every other year) that I will not snuggle alpacas and then touch my eyes. This year I will fail (as I have every other year). So if you see some chick with red, runny eyes trying to smuggle creas out of the Dane County Coliseum, it's me. Be sure and say hi and be prepared to aid and abet if called upon. Look nonchalant.
Hopefully I will recover by the time Last Saturday Knitting comes around in the afternoon. I always look forward to knitting with the girls and sipping a Victor Allen's icy coffee concoction. I just finished a big project, so maybe I'll take my entrelac scarf and finish that off. Or my top down sock. Once I finish all of my half-dones, I will start on this...
It's my painted sock blank from Fairy Yarnmother. Isn't it cool!?!? I can't wait to see how the socks come out. I got Mum one too. It'll be fun to compare our pairs since her painting is very similar to mine. At the rate she knits though, I may have to knit up mine and then knit hers when I got back home for a visit!
Sunday I have tickets to go see Almost Maine at The Overture Center. A guy from my neck of the woods in Northern Maine wrote it. I bought the tickets on October and have been counting down the days in my calendar ever since! Two County Kids together in the same room! Prepare for mayhem, Madison! Can't wait!
Here are some pics of the pretty flowers my kids and my company gave me for Administrative Professionals day.

How can I have a gray dull weekend with all of that kind of fun and love?!?!?! Ya'll have a bright and shiny weekend too!
