Weekend Coffee Share

Hi, how are you? Can I get you a cup of coffee? Or tea? I don’t have a lot to share with you this week. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday was a regular work week, busy, busy, busy. On Thursday morning my daughter woke up with a high fever, and I stayed at home with her Thursday and Friday. She still has a fever, but not as high as in then beginning. She is rather poorly and I’m just trying to make her as comfortable as possible. Nothing much is happening around here. (I am grateful that I am able to stay at home and take care of my Princess when she is sick.) We watched a little bit of an equestrian show from Amsterdam, “Jumping Amsterdam“. It was fun.

Earlier this week I ordered some yarn for a baby blanket. A good friend of mine is having a baby in June. My friend is in many ways a complete opposite of me. She is a shopaholic and have already bought tons of baby clothes (for a whole army of babies.) My plan is to give her a unique handmade gift that she can’t purchase in any store. I’m going to crochet a baby blanket for her baby. The baby shower is in five weeks, and I am hoping it is going to be finished by then. I’ve carefully selected the yarn, it is very thin, organic, and recommended for the summer time.

How is your week? I bet you have more things going on than I have at the moment. Tell me about it in a comment! Thank you Natalie for hosting the Weekend Coffee Share.
