My mom left this morning, but we had a great visit. Yesterday we did a little Halloween decorating, played some Scrabble, and went to Lawrence. How is it possible that I have been living only an hour away from Lawrence for about six years now and I only just went there? They have the best fabric store I've ever seen, then across the street is an amazing yarn store complete with looms, spinning wheels, and roving, and next door to that there is a needlework store. Oh. My. Heaven, I tell you. We ate lunch at Local Burger, did some walking around/shopping, and then had ice cream at Ben and Jerry's before we came home. All in all, a perfect day. It was made even better because I am now the happy owner of these lovelies:
I also got some fabric in the mail today that I ordered from a co-op awhile back. When it came I was sort of wondering why I had chosen a selection that was so very, um, orange, but I looked it up and it turns out my order wasn't quite right. Rats. I'm going to send the wrong piece (the middle one) back to the person who ran the co-op and she's going to switch it out with the right one.
We had to get up at 7:30 this morning to take my mom to the train, so I just got done taking a two hour nap with the kiddos. The best part is, they are both still asleep. At some point we really need to get to the store because we are in desperate need of toilet paper, but staying inside on this dreary, rainy day sounds so much more appealing. I think I'll go make some tea and call Steve to ask him to stop at the store on his way home. :)
P.S. Can anyone who might understand HTML a a little better than I please tell me why these columns are so close together and how I can change it? I can't figure out how to do it and it's making me a little crazy. Thanks.
