I love Sundays these days. I slept in until 10 (oh yeah....). David and Grace woke up before me and did their eating thing while I slept and then finished a book about the brain and addiction (very enlightening). I got up and we went to Starbucks for my breakfast and then off to the Sunday farmers market. After a swing around the market we walked around our new house (down the alley and then past the front). I found a lovely place in the back to grow my tomatoes next year and I decided that the front, even though it is north facing will work fine for peas and herbs.

When we arrived home Nichole dropped by with my grandson Grant. While Grant took a nap in Graces bed we cleaned our room (I had a bunch of laundry to fold and my closet to organize plus books and other clothes that needed sorting. In my search I ran across my fat pants again and tried them on :)

We are now off to the science museum to look at a games exhibit that Grace is interested in seeing.

Tomorrow David and I are leaving for San Francisco for a week child free!! :) My plan is to find a nice 40's or 50's style dress to wear with my UK shoe purchase, do some uninterrupted writing in my hotel room and eat in fancy restaurants with David. Maybe we will fit some romance in there as well :)

look at you girl! You look awesome!! Yes we do share a love of knitting and great yarn stores. I even bought autographed Soak - signed by Amy Butler. :) Anyway - the store, wildfiber, was AMAZING. I bought some beautiful (and expensive) yarn and am making a neck warmer. Hope all is well with you - can we find some good yarn stores in Chicago?? :) LOL
