My parents came down around lunch time to bring me a small secretary they had at their house that I planned to make my new writing desk.
|Cute isn't it?|
We went to Fairview Dairy Bar for lunch, and then while Rob & Dad piddled around the house, Mom & I went to the yarn store, Hallmark, and Belk. I actually did not buy a single thing at Find X Design, the local yarn store, so I was very proud of myself. Mom bought some yarn, a pattern book, and some needles, so we still did our part to help the economy.
I made my own economic contributions at Hallmark & Belk though. Our Hallmark has an attached boutique which sells Danskos and I finally bought the brown tooled leather ones I've been wanting for a while. I have these same shoes in Black & wear them all the time. At Belk I bought a t-shirt. They also had Fiesta dinner plates as singles, so I bought a few more colors of plates to add to our every day dishes. I've been wanting some more plates, but haven't wanted to buy full 4 piece place settings, which was the only thing I'd been able to find before now.
After Mom & Dad left I did some knitting, finished cleaning & sorting the bathroom cabinets I started this morning before they arrived, cooked dinner, then did some more knitting while I watched TV with Rob.
So nothing too exciting today, but all in all a good day. Now I have a date with my spinning wheel because Tour de Fleece (more about that tomorrow probably) started today and I can't fail on the first day!
