Happy Friday folks!
Hi everyone, my name is Catherine and I make crocheted and felted jewelry that I sell in my Etsy-shop Ollies Woollies. Since my days are spent at a museum – where I’m an archaeologist who over the years turned webmaster/-designer – my crocheting is mainly done in the evenings and weekends. Still, I hope you enjoy having a peek at my friday.
After a quick shower it’s time for breakfast: a bowl of vanilla yoghurt with raspberries and homemade muesli. I got the recipe on a trip to Germany this summer. We stayed for bed and breakfast at an amazing farm, where all the food was homemade. Delicious!
Around 7 the rest of the family (husband Michael and daughter Elna) is up and about. A quick hi and it’s time for me to hit the road. It’s a one hour drive to Kristianstad, the town where I work. I used to commute by train, but after 13 years of getting up before 5 o’clock, I got fed up. If it’s a beautiful morning – like today – it’s a joy to drive and I love to play music really loud and sing along. I’m no singer, but who cares, there’s no one around to tell me to shut up!
At 12 it’s time for lunch. The museum’s got a great restaurant, Café Miró, where the cook Anita serves the most amazing home made buffet! Today one dish is Coffee Roasted Chicken with Chocolate flavored gravy! It tastes absolutely divine!
Still on our lunch break, my friend and workmate Evelyn and I go for our daily walk through town. Today it’s time for a visit to my local yarn shop, “helylle”, to stock up on some yarn for the weekend.
Back at my desk, I continue working with designing the new web for the museum’s collections, until about 5, when it’s time to head back home. My favorite part of the road is when passing all the wind turbines. Their merry twirling makes me feel happy!
I’m back home at around 6, and it’s time for supper. Since it’s Friday, Elna is hanging out with friends and it’s just me and M. We make it simple, just a cup of tea and a sandwich in front of the telly. And a quick look through the new Ikea-catalogue that arrived today.
Since I had no sales today, I continue to crochet on the table cloth I started a while back. I saw the pattern at a small local museum and thought it would fit perfectly on the bright red garden table at our summer cottage. Hopefully, I’ll have it finished by next summer :)
11 o’clock and it’s time for bed. Tomorrow we’re off to our summer cottage and a crayfish party with my brother. And since it’s Saturday, there will be more time for Ollies Woollies – with a bit of luck!
