It seems like it has been a quick trip through May. Too quick for me! May is one of my favorite months and even with all of the rain we've had, I wouldn't mind if it stuck around a little longer.
May has brought some good things and some not so good things.
The not so good things - allergies worse than I've ever had them. The whole itchy, watery eyes, runny nose, etc. thing and also making the list - replacing our air conditioner. Hopefully the last big house expenditure for a while!
The good things.
Good thing number one - spending Mother's Day with my son! He treated me to a trip to a new yarn store I had wanted to check out in Chesapeake City, Maryland. It is only about ten minutes away, and that could be a dangerous thing.
(although the bridge could be a deterrent if I choose to travel that route again).
I offered to let him wait in the car, but he came in with me and very patiently walked all around the store while I oohed and ahhed over all of the lovely yarns and other goodies they had.
I think I was pretty good. I bought some beautiful yarn of course and three different needle sizes I needed.
Do I know what I'm going to do with any of it -- not really, but I've been spending a lot of time looking on Ravelry.
Afterward, he took me to brunch at the Chesapeake Inn. We didn't have reservations and still were sat at one of the best tables.
Complete with a view of That Bridge! 😰I think the thing that bothers me the most about it is that it is only two lanes. Oh, and the low, see-through sides. According to my son, the view from the top was quite scenic!
Good thing number two - the start of Book Bingo! Thank you, Mary, for keeping this going!
And just in time for Book Bingo - the arrival of a few new books. I think they will fit into some of the categories.
I know stitching pictures have been few and far between. I am trying. But runny eyes and nose and workmen tramping in and out of the house make it a little frustrating - I am close to a finish though.
And wow, even more bloggers are disappearing. I think Blogger is trying to make it easy. I don't really understand what is going on with comments and I'm tempted to just disable them, but we'll see how it goes.
Until next time take care!
