I hope your Exam goes well. Tests are always scary.

I had a weekend that was busy in unexpected ways. On Saturday, I went out to visit my mother and her husband, intending to take them out for a ride, since it was such a beautiful day. My mother has Alzheimer's that is getting progressively worse. Chuck (Mom's husband...a really great guy), decided that, since I was there, it would be a good time to de-stash Mom's fabrics, yarns, and fibers, since she doesn't use any of them anymore. So I ended up heading home with my little car crammed full of yarn and fiber that had all been stored in the basement for several years. Urk! I spent the rest of the weekend re-skeining and washing yarn in the washing machine, and hanging it outside to dry in the sun. I have three laundry baskets full of yarn, so now I need to sort through it, get it labeled and bagged, and see what needs to be washed again. Most of the smell seems to be gone, although I'll be able to tell better after work today; after awhile, you can't smell it anymore because you're used to it. Not pleasant work, but the yarn is lovely and I'll be able to put it to good use, probably in some tapestry work.
