This weekend’s plans consists of the 31 Spring Product Premiere! Can’t wait to find out the new products and patterns in the Spring 2014 catalog. Also, I intend to walk a 5K on Sunday. In between, lots of chores, Christmas shopping, and errands to run. Plus – resting and trying to get better.

What’s on your weekend schedule? Have you finished Christmas shopping? Started?

Have a healthy day!
