Plum tuckered out!

No tatting Friday. No tatting Saturday. Sunday's not looking too good either...

This weekend was the first weekend of the Jaycee's Haunted Trail, and I was drafted as a volunteer. It was lots of fun, but I have no energy left! I never, ever stay up until 11, and that's when the trail ended!

Friday night was chilly and windy. I stood outside, braving the elements (luckily I had dressed in layers), taking tickets from 5:30 - 10:45. I talked with lots of people, and even told a ghost story to two little boys! I don't know if it was adrenaline, chill, or being over-tired, but the last time I looked at the clock, it was 1:45! Did I sleep in? Yup... I didn't get up until 6 a.m.!

Dave and I had lots of errands to run Saturday morning, and I decided to take a nap so that I could help again Saturday night. I slept from noon to 3:30... longest nap I've ever taken when I wasn't sick!

Saturday night was a little easier on these over-tired bones... I got to ride a hay wagon as a supervisor for most of the evening. Dave jumped out of bushes and scared people until his voice gave out. Guess who he scared the most? ; )

We were home by 11:30, and I did manage to sleep in until 6:45. I've been playing catch-up this morning... laundry, mail, housework... doesn't look like there'll be much chance for tatting today!


  1. Save your strength! And take those naps - I'm a firm believer in weekend naps!

  2. Tomorrow is another day! Hope you have a good sleep tonight!

  3. That sounds like fun! This weekend, I got a little bit of tatting done, but not much because my man's family came into town. Which you may find this interesting, but they came into town from Aurora, IL which is near you right? We are actually planning on taking a trip up that way this winter, Chris wants to show the baby snow lol.

  4. Enjoy your fright nights and don't fret over the long lie-ins, you need to recharge your batteries. Besides, a time change is coming in a few weeks.

    Tatting when exhausted only leads to retro-tatting or scissor shreds anyway.

  5. In case you hadn't noticed, you only got about 4 hours of sleep Friday night! No wonder you napped for three hours on Saturday!

    I was hoping you just 'relaxed' and read a book over the weekend, but I should have known better! You're sort of like the Energizer Bunny (LOL!), always busy!!

    Sounds like a fun time, though!!!

  6. Definitely sounds like you had a memorable, fun but tiring weekend. I had to help haul branches & stack wood Sat. & Sun from a huge elm that had to come down as it was infected by Dutch Elm Disease & dead. Hardly got any stitching done either :(

  7. Oh my - take care of yourself! You sound totally busy

  8. Sounds like fun, but try to stay warm and get some sleep! That is so nice of you to volunteer. I bet you're a favorite with the kids.


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
