Not well

Del was out of town last week to take a class for his job. I had planned on having my own private little quilting retreat, but alas, the best laid plans ...

I had stocked up on all the essentials for a week alone at home.

And then I ended up fighting a cold all week and instead of sewing I just did some knitting in between drinking hot tea and keeping warm.
I knitted a blanket for Miss Kitty, I guess she likes it because she sleeps on it every night.

I finished knitting two scarves for Special Olympics, still have to weave in the ends and find a way to talk the one on the right out of rolling itself up into a tight little sausage. Since it is made with acrylic yarn I am not sure it will allow me to block it.

And I finished one mitten (second one is almost finished) for the homeless shelter and one pair of baby slippers for the Pink Slipper Project.

I also watched some TV series online which is better than I thought, much less commercials to get through and the playback quality is pretty good.
And I baked two loaves of Cinnamon Raisin Oatmeal Bread. 

Del came back home on Friday with a nasty cold of his own and the two colds decided to merge. Now I have a chest cold, coughing like crazy and hurting all over. Why is it, that I always get to feel poorly with holidays coming up?
I will be cooking and baking tomorrow for Thanksgiving, stay tuned for our not so traditional dinner. ;-)

Sounds like you had a productive week anyway, just not the kind you had planned. Sure hope you both start to feel better soon so you can enjoy the holidays!
