Today was my day off – and I spent it resting and moving into a new hotel (Doubletree) closer to Rumplestiltskin, where I’ll be teaching on Tues.
But today – today was for me. I relaxed and rested and revived myself.
Across the street from my new hotel is a shopping center with a Nordstroms – gold! I really love the Nordstrom’s Cafe, the salads are wonderful and I had the BEST chicken, apple & goat cheese salad with a glass of iced tea followed by a nice cup of tea and a cookie. I sat out on a terrace, the sun was shining and it was just cool enough to make me glad that I had my shawl with me. What a lovely, sunny, pleasant, peaceful day!
Then I shopped a bit – looked at new silhouettes and bought a small purse (my own had ripped apart on the way back from France – luckily I discovered this before I lost my passport!
Then back to my room for some resting, writing and knitting.
This evening I ended the day with a lovely visit to Joan MM’s house, finally meeting her husband and son. She’s so lovely, and her family is so kind! Her husband made us a wonderful dinner – absolutely delicious – and I got a chance to admire their “box” (a home away from home trailer, a terrific on-the-road refuge from the fiber shows & conventions!) I also met their affectionate cat, Moxie. Great cat! One of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen! I told Joan she should design a colorway based on Moxie’s beautiful black and tan coat.
I have no pictures of my visit, though, because my camera battery charger has gone to the electronics warehouse in the sky. A new one should be on its’ way to my home, hopefully there when I get home, but until then my blog will be rather photo-free. Dang. Trust me, though, we ALL looked exceptionally beautiful!
