Lazy snails

This past weekend was a long weekend here in Ontario. Monday was Family Day - a holiday started by the provincial government in 2008. The idea is to get out and spend the day with your family and there's endless activities going on all over town.

Naturally, Dave and the kids and I took advantage of the day in the best way possible
While we were all snuggled up, watching movies and just generally being lazy, I managed to put a few more repeats on the lace tunic
Not that you can really tell. This thing grows at a snail's pace. When I first started it, I was hoping I could have it done by the end of February. I'm not nearly so optimistic now. I'm not even half way through the back. At this pace, I'll be lucky to have it done by summer!

I love the idea of an official family day. We try to have one from time to time. In fact, tomorrow is Family Fun Day chez moi. Our idea of a good time is to pack up the dogs and head out to Petsmart and then to Subway to pick up lunch. Then we head home and watch a movie while stuffing our faces. If we don't pencil one in, we never get a day to ourselves to do pretty much nothing. The best part: NO housework allowed!
