On The Road

I've been on the road since Saturday, arriving at my niece's home in Atlanta late Sunday afternoon. The turn-by-turn navigation in my new car worked really great, taking me through some unbelievably beautiful neighborhoods with ginormous homes.
Carla and Jeff have a wonderful home in peaceful area very near a super park.  Their dog Barney hasn't decided if I'm friend or foe yet, although tonight I got to feed him.  His dinner included a bit of the Chicken Marsala that I made for dinner - yummo!
I've been teaching Carla to knit, something she can do to keep busy while she waits for the birth of her first child.  She has picked it up very easily, even mastering the longtail cast on where so many others have failed.  She should finish her first effort, a washcloth, tomorrow and we'll move on to a baby blanket.
I ventured out today for a bit and visited a yarn shop nearby that looks like the building used to be motel - really wacky.  The yarn selection was nice, though, and I bought some supplies for Carla, a couple of patterns, and some Malabrigo Chunky to make a top down baby sweater over the next couple of days before heading back home.
The weather has been beautiful with highs near 80 degrees each day.  Couldn't ask for more!

Not sure how close you are to this, but a friend owns this shop:

Tell them BHS sent you. . .
