Found-- These bracelets, in our travels, for fun friendship matching. They are made out of leather and snap on. They are quite reminiscent of the 80's, or was it early 90's?
Love them and the friends we share them with.
Found-- The "right" yarn after searching high and low on vacation. There were no yarn shops to be found, can you believe that? I will say that the concept of stranded on a desert island came to mind, dramatic yes but that is this knitters nightmare.
That day we randomly sat next to another family at lunch. The mother pulled a skein of yarn out of her purse to show her daughter, "Is this the right color?".
"Excuse me, " I said, "Did you find that yarn around here by chance?"
"Yes, right over there in the guitar/ukulele shop". what?!??
okay...stay calm...I repeat remain calm....
I had passed by that place a number of times, okay ten times at least. I had finally given up hope of finding the yarn for a project that I hope to share with you soon. It was there the whole time??!!??!
I left the chilins' with the big daddy and marched over to the store called Strings and things...in small print the sign said, we sell instruments, movies, yarn and knitting supplies. I'm not sure how movies relates to strings but who cares, they have yarn.
I might have heard the song "Heaven, I'm in Heaven...." start playing in my head but I'll never say for sure. Inside there was yarn. Yarn I say. Not just yarn but beautiful, locally dyed, amazing yarn. The kind of yarn that makes you forget how much yarn you already have at home and decide your on vacation anyway so...
So that was a good day.
Found-- A new hooper in our midst. Who would have thought? She can get the hoop swirling around her on the ground like no ones business. Watch out because soon she will be walking...
Found:: Some classics in my bookshelves begging to be re-read. Count of Monte Cristo done!
Found:: My seven year old may be "growing like a weed" when he said to the big daddy, after consuming a double cheeseburger that it was "a nice snack." Umm, good thing we had some more salad and veggies to offer him.
Found:: Kombucha in a place where we never thought we would find it. Delicious, refreshing trilogy flavored Kombucha. That day I felt very lucky indeed.
Found:: That I love hearing from all my dear readers out there. If I haven't told you yet today, I enjoy all your comments and emails. It makes my day and I really appreciate you coming to visit!
Hope you find some lovely times this weekend. See you on Monday!
