I woke up super early this morning and after going through mail and blogs that I read I finally got up to make a cup of tea to take back to bed with me – and thought I might read for a little bit but then started a blog post instead. We had a rainy two days here in Virginia – finally clearing up and even though it will not be real warm it will be drier than it has been.
We have been wandering through shops as when it is wet what else is there to do other than talking and watching movies. My sister has no hobbies and is not interested in taking any up. She will be going back to work when she can, maybe sometime in late February. She likes to cook and read.
I have gotten a little sewing done but not a lot – two more hexies were added to the Handful of Scraps quilts.
I’m not sure how many places we wandered in and out of yesterday – there are a lot of discount stores in the area I have found out and she seems to know where they all are! I had been planning on making an apron soon as I keep messing up shirts so much and never remember to buy one, then see a pattern and think how pricey it is – well I found a nice gray/white stripe apron for next to nothing at one of the shops and got it – and the best is it is so simple I can use it for a pattern for more to make when I get home. Always nice to have a couple in the kitchen. I used to have some and then some how they all managed to disappear.
I haven’t seen many things to buy though that I really wanted to stuff in the suitcase. Although we are not done yet! 5 days left here, today we will be visiting my nephew and family as he is off work today they live not quite in the country but kind of bordering it and they have chickens – I will try to get some shots of that!
Now that the weather is getting nicer/drier I should say – we are planning more short outings – taking a short drive to Yorktown maybe tomorrow and wander and see things – lunch and shops and walk along the water. She still tires quickly but is getting closer to being back to normal.
I will get some photos today and try to get some more over the next day or two.
