In my house...and out again!
I've been doing a lot of suitcase stuffing, lately! I just got back
Saturday afternoon from Scottsdale, AZ after being there for a
week "supervising and taxi-ing" 6 kids from 6 years to 21 years.
...yep, and you could say "it was TAXING to this old grandma"
It was fun...tho!
This was the calendar for where and when everyone needed to be...
a few extra things got added that weren't written in.
This Pioneer "gal" (gps) was a great help, once I learned how she worked.
But, I couldn't have done without the Elijah and Zoey navigators who
gave me up to the minute guidance.
I did get a few splashes in their backyard pool...this is Marz an me
with feet splashes. Sorry, I didn't want to scare you with any pictures
of me in my suit-splashes. =P
Early morning/before school (6:30am) seminary for the teens...
Some last-minute shoe tying of the littles... before hopping out
to go to school.
Before bed snacks...
I visited several knit stores in the area. This was one of my favorites...
Jessica Knits. It was cozy inside...with LOTS of fun yarns. Very
friendly service too!
And...look at this WONDERFUL array of books! There was a comfy chair
and couch to sit in while deciding what book(s) to choose. Just to the right of
of the chair
was another area with a large 6 chair table for sitting and knitting.
Yep, I started another sock project. This one is to be toe-up using
Judy's Magic cast on.
(ok...don't ask how many socks I've actually finished...)
Every knit store that I did visit had these labels on each shelf/section
of different yarn. It would tell the type of yarn and it's weight. But,
Jessica Knits also had the price, yardage and content of the yarn. This
way the customer doesn't have to take a ball of yarn out to read the labels.
I found this to save lots of time...and I'm sure that it kept the balls of yarn
and the labels in NEW condition.
I didn't have much time to knit while in Scottsdale. I was in the car
driving LOTS. And, when at home...I was working to keep them (and dogs) fed,
keep things tidied up and keep the peace. =)
This Wednesday night DH and I will be on the
"red-eye" flight to New York to visit 2 daughters and
2 grandboys. I'm hoping to knit a bit, if there is some down time...but,
who knows??...down-time could equal rest/veg time
One of the days we are in New York, DH and I will be going to a
Yankee baseball game. Some really nice seats were bought for DH
for Father's Day/B-day/Christmas 2012.
We will be in NY for a week...then, DH flies home to Salt Lake City,
and I fly direct to Portland. I will be going to another Fiber festival...
