Friday night, Pk and I gave up date night and went to the grocery store. If it weren't for having to give up date night, I'd always go after work on Friday. It wasn't crowded at all. I expected a mob since Christmas is coming soon but it was not . We got food and then went to the liquor store to get rum and wine and beer (for eggnog, wine punch and just plain drinking). Elanor helped me put the food away and then we were free to do the other holiday chores for the rest of the weekend.
That included shopping. I went to Delaware this morning with Pk to get some bits and pieces for the gifts he is making. Then he went with me to the yarn store to get some bits and pieces for gifts. I was able to find everything I wanted and it felt good to buy it locally.
And then an exciting thing happened in the life of my car. I have an Isuzu Rodeo ( a '94) and today we did this (look at the odometer). It's a little daunting to think that we put all of those one hundred thousand miles on the car! This is the coolest thing about having a small camera. I had it in my purse and could take a photo of the odometer just as it hit 100,000. (we were stopped at a red light, no risky behavior here).
This is my monkey socks in progress. I love all the colors in this yarn. They're just happy looking socks. I have been working on the grey sweater and needed some color so I pulled these out of my work bag. It's a glorious riot of color and soft and just lovely to work with. I have to pick out the bound off edge and pick the stitches back up on the sweater since the armhole isn't going to be large enough. I made it to the pattern measurements but I don't like the way it's going to fit so I'll make the armhole a little larger and I think it'll hang nicer. It's only going to need a few inches added but I think those few inches will make a big difference.
