After loading our farm-fresh goodies in our vehicle, my daughter-in-law suggested we check out some shops close by -- she didn't have to bend our arms to convince us either!
We visited a free-trade shop with wares for all over the globe, a spice shop and an antique shop (note to the owners of this little shop: if you could be bothered to greet your customers as they enter, you just might make a sale or two -- just a little suggestion).
But the favorite shop was this one:
The cutest little yarn shop ever -- filled with row after row of bins of color.
For the past two years, my free time as been taken over by knitting and I simply can't pass a yarn shop by without going in and checking out all their supplies. As we walked through the door, my daughter-in-law just happened to mention that she would love to learn to knit.
Well, before she knew it I was buying her first set of knitting needles (wooden, size 10 1/2). Then, with much discussion of felted purses with the friendly staff, my d-i-l had purchased her very first skein of wool yarn in a golden brown color.
If I can't get my daughter into knitting, a d-i-l is the next best thing !!
With all our treasures (fruits and knitting supplies) we headed home to further adventures of the babysitting variety, while my son and his wife had a date night just to themselves; and, I had an evening playing 'Lucky Ducky' with Phoebe and some chasing after a crawling baby. I seemed to have forgotten that they can crawl faster than you can run !!
