Happy Monday friends how have you been? My weekend was really good. On Saturday I went to a local yarn shop, well it’s not really local it’s about a 30-40 minute drive for me, but that is my nearest yarn shop. It was such a beautiful day. There was not a cloud in the sky. This yarn shop, The Yarn Haven, flooded about this time last year. Their shop flooded before they were able to get in and save very much of the yarn. It took almost a year to reopen in another location. This was the first time I had been to the new store. I had saved up some money just for this occasion and I was really excited about going.
The Yarn Haven is where I learned to knit socks many many years ago. They offer a lot of different classes. They even do a class where you can bring your work and just work on whatever project you have going. If you need help there is some wonderful instructors there to help out. I have learned so much through this shop.
Because Saturday was such a beautiful day I decided to take the back roads and take some pictures. The sky was unbelievably blue.
Just look at that sky. It is so beautiful. I love the colors of the field against the sky.
And look at those mountains in the background. You may not be able to see it but there is snow on the mountain tops.
We have had flooding in the area the last few weeks. This road just a couple of miles from us is still partially flooded. One lane is actually still closed. It still looks a little scary.
So I went to the yarn shop and it took me about two hours to get there because of all the stops I made to take photos. I was in heaven. Most of the time when I am passing through these areas I don’t have time to stop and get pictures. I just decided that I was going to take the time.
This is my haul from the yarn shop. I hadn’t been in over a year. I had to stock up. Yeah that’s my story and I’m sticking to it. I don’t know what I am going to make with all of this but I can’t wait to get started.
The Bradford Pear trees are starting to bloom out. This is crazy!!! I am so afraid we are going to have freezing weather and kill all that has bloomed out.
Sunday was a restful day hanging out at home. I did make a blueberry cobbler and it was yummy!!!! I will have it for breakfast for a few mornings. Don’t judge!!!!
And I saved the best for last. Today (Monday, February 24th) is Baby Kay Day!!! That is the day that I donated a kidney to my husband and we call the kidney Baby Kay. We celebrate every year. It has been nine years today. It is the best thing I have ever done. If you ever have a chance to consider donating a kidney and have any questions I would love to answer any that you might have.
I hope you had a great weekend and have a wonderful week!!!
Love your day your way!!!!
