Weekend Story: More Yarn Shopping + Dinner with My Godchildren

Last weekend was quite hectic. On Friday night, we had a family dinner at The Hashery, the newly-opened casual dining restaurant catering mostly to students in Sampaloc, Manila. On Saturday morning, I, accompanied by the hubby and Mame, did some yarn shopping in Rosario, Pasig (Gantsilyo Guru’s shop and Lacion Yarn Store). After that, we all went home in Bacoor with a stop-over at S&R Baclaran. I would be hosting a dinner for my godchildren that night and due to time constraints, I resorted to buying ready-to-eat food and some easy-to-prepare salad ingredients from there. (I just cooked pasta and rice when we got home.) While I was picking food items off the shelves, the hubby was buying new tires which he had the S&R tire center staff installed to our car.) We got back to Manila on Sunday afternoon as I had this work-related meeting to attend. The hubby biked to Roxas Blvd. while I was busy in the office. We would see each other again at night and I would start crocheting for a new project before going to bed.

It was another packed weekend for us. We had lots of fun and laughter and we felt productive at the same time. Here are photos from our weekend activities:

Weekend Story: Crocheting + Visit to the National Museum of the Philippines

Last weekend was relaxing and fun. The hubby and I missed going home in Bacoor due to some errands we had to do. He, for instance, had to attend his lone Saturday class in grad school. He was supposed to finish his master’s program last October but he encountered some problem with his thesis (a prototype). Now he still has to fix that and prepare for his thesis defense and hopefully, he’ll be able to graduate in March 2017. But I digress.

So yeah, we spent the entire weekend here in Manila. On Saturday, I went to Quiapo with Mame to buy some crochet supplies. I’ve finally had the time to learn crocheting with Mame as teacher. Boy, was she great! And I have to think I was a fast learner, too! Buhatan na ito ng sariling bangko, hahaha.
