Saturday I spent a wonderful day with Jenny,friends, fiber and beautiful weather! Jenny and I dropped Owen off at Megan's house at 6:30 a.m.-yes I said a.m.!! We drove back to the Blakeney section of Charlotte to meet our knitting friends Ginny and Julie. We drove up to Asheville, NC, which is about 2 hrs. from our homes. It was a beautiful sunny, clear, crisp Fall day. The leaves in the mountains were at their peak and just gorgeous. We arrived around 9 and we left around 3:30. We walked, walked and walked looking at beautiful fiber, spinning wheels, looms, shawl pins, soaps, hand creams, fudge, Angora bunnies, patterns, etc., etc. It was wonderful!! I bought some fiber and I already started the Fan and Feather Scarf!! Jenny, Ginny and Julie bought fiber too! We will be creating some really beautiful things over the next few months. It was just a beautiful day spent with wonderful friends! Here are some photos of what I bought:
As you can tell I thoroughly enjoyed my day with my daughter and friends! I slept really well that night, I should have put on a pedometer!!
Today I am home from work not feeling well at all. My throat feels like it has a golf ball in it. I will be just relaxing and resting today. Guess I over did it this weekend. It was worth it though!!
Everyone have a great day!
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
