Life after Work

Guild Meeting Weekend

On Saturday I finally managed to attend a meeting of the Arizona Desert Weavers and Spinners Guild and joined. I had a great time because it was the guild’s annual fundraiser meeting which means that there is an auction of gift baskets compiled by guild members. Vice President Susan Clarke did most of the auctioneering and had everyone in stitches, she’s a hoot! The guild members I spoke with were all very welcoming. I met Bernie who is going to help me get started weaving (I’ll be rending the guild loom next year) and after the meeting I had lunch with Gayl, Karen, and Melissa. I’m looking forward to the next meeting!

John was at the farm on Saturday, so I had the afternoon to myself. I had a great time knitting and watching movies on Netflix, knitting up the remaining yarn for my knitted ruana wrap and continuing on John’s socks.

On Sunday my sister phoned, while I was on Skype with my mom. I called Stephanie back shortly afterwards and we chatted for quite some time which was great. In the afternoon we drove to Tucson’s Loft cinema to see the film Anti Christ by Lars von Trier. I can’t outright say I loved it but it was excellent, while at the same time exhausting to watch and follow. The performances by Willem Dafoe and especially Charlotte Gainsbourg are gut wrenching to say the least. This is not for the faint-of-heart or easily offended. The movie really made us think and we talked about it all the way home.
