No pics today... Mom and I went browsing in a beautiful antique shop looking for tatting shuttles and thimbles, but came up empty. That's o.k. I really do have enough tatting shuttles and thimbles! Next we stopped at our favorite oriental shop. I found a cute little bowl that will be great for holding my tatting threads. I really don't need another bowl, but how could I pass up a $2.00 bargain? We planned on going to Papa's Place for lunch, but they discontinued serving lunch last week... drat! We were forced to go to O'Charley's, where we indulged in red bean and rice soup (outstanding!), chicken fingers, and caramel pie ice cream. I'd never been to O'Charley's before, but I hope to go again!
There were only three of us at Purl & Chain yesterday afternoon. Bobbie is almost finished with her Auburn ripple afghan... one color repeat to go! Mom and I took yarn last week that nobody wanted (including us), and we're working on a six panel afghan. We should be close to finishing by the time I go home Tuesday.
Mom had lots of fun playing with her Kindle. She found three sites with free books to download, including the Gutenburg Project, Melissa! Mom looked up titles from her favorite authors when she was young including Edgar Rice Burroughs and Gene Stratton-Porter. With the titles Mom found, we figure she'll make up the cost of her Kindle in no time! It was kind of fun sitting here trying to remember titles of books we'd read a long time ago!
Today we'll go to Rock Creek and meet Betty for lunch. Mom wants to work on a couple of small projects, so maybe today will be the day. One thing nice about this two weeks together is that we can do what we want, when we want, and not feel guilty about our choices. Hey... maybe that's what retirement is like!
In the blink of an eye...
