Weekend

Took a nice long walk in the morning down to Starbucks and had coffee and did some knitting. While I was there, Youngest Daughter called and invited me out with Eldest Daughter and all the kidlings. The girls put in job aps at Pier 1, and then we went to Olive Garden for lunch. It was fantastic. Had soup (Pasta e Fagioli) and salad with ice tea. The kids were well behaved and it's so nice to see my daughters laughing and getting along. (Long story for some other day.)

Consequently I didn't get the knitting done I'd planned. I am about one third the way through Eldest Grandson's second mitten. I'm hoping a long day of knitting at the mall bookstore with new knitting friends will solve that problem. I had promised them to him before school in the morning....

It's been raining this morning...so I'm thinking when I walk up to the mall, I can wear my clear rain boots to show off my hand knit socks.....

Had an unexpected stroke of good luck yesterday. I was searching through the "stacks" of audio books available via my public library and found the MP3 recording of the newest Diana Gabaldon book, An Echo in the Bone. I read it when it came out in September, but now am doubly enjoying my morning walks listening to it, too!

I really am glad you're commenting. Please make sure I can find you by insuring you leave an e-mail address. It's so frustrating to have someone ask a question and no way to answer them! Thanks!
