So Many Thoughts

I have so much to say, but just can't say it. I spent some time yesterday while we were waiting for our plane home, to write out my thoughts on how my dad is doing. It's not all good. BUT, I really want to tell you about the fun stuff that Kim and I did.

We went shopping! We went to Mervyn's and she found cute PJ's with Cap'n Jack on them, and I found a really cute little sweater for summer. We also went to The Great Mall. Holy cow, that place is huge! It is an outlet mall, though not all the stores in it are of the outlet type. There was
Hot Topic, Papaya, two stores that Kim really likes and I know we have them here, so I wasn't willing to pay sales tax at those two places. We did find some other cool stores for t-shirts, underclothing, etc.

Thursday evening we hit Purlescence Yarns for their Knit Night! Oh what fun that was.

We met lots

and lots

of other bloggers,

saw Nathania and even held little Elinor. It was wonderful, warm and funny. Thank you guys for the wonderful welcome. We will definitely stop back in when we are in town.

Kim and baby.

Mom and baby.

Me and baby.

I had to share the stupidest thing I did on Monday. We were headed to the airport, and I was knitting furiously to finish my pair of Fetching. Well, I cast off with just seconds left before we were to get out of the van. I told everyone I was going to leave the yarn in the van since I didn't need it and didn't want to transport it to California with me. So, later we are sitting in the gate area and I pull out my Fetching to finish it up. I realize that I hadn't done something and there was no way I could finish them to wear on this trip.

Can you tell what's missing? THUMBS. I was not happy, but at the same time, I couldn't help but laugh.

I just tagged you for a "Make my Day" award:)
I think it's great that you were helping out. I've been doing a bit of that myself lately. And getting to see little Elinor!!
