OMG, I am hopeless.
Another day OFF.
Can you believe that?
My friend and I took off for Middlebury, Vt. We wanted to go to the yarn shop there, and have a nice leisurely, chat it up, kind of lunch.
I wasn't a total slug though. I took rugs and Hip to Be Square Rag Rug Kits with me, and dropped them off at two shops.
Sweet Cecily, right on Main St, is a sweet little novelty shop, and they sell Solmate socks, so they like to have some Solmate sock rugs to go with them.
Cacklin' Hens, a Vermont Yarn, Bead, and Gift Emporium, is a fantastic yarn shop, and they are selling the Hip to Be Square, and other fabric rugs. I am going to make them some bags to carry yarn in.
Being orderless never felt so good as it has lately. It is just my perspective.
This guy knows how to relax.
(that's my new lens..........I can zoom in that far and didn't have to carry around another lens)
There are lots of places to have lunch in Middlebury, but the owner of the yarn shop suggested one we haven't been to before.
We're always up for a new lunch location.
And it was a beautiful day to eat outside.
We ate under a canopy looking out over the Otter Creek, just downstream from the falls.
I am trying to learn how to do other stuff, besides work. I sometimes get into 'production mode', and I am quite unkind to myself.
I am trying to be better.
I have friends, and family, who are trying to help me unlearn some of my bad habits.
A cold glass of summer ale doesn't hurt either. For lunch. I am SO bad.
And it was SO good.
Middlebury has lots of shopping possibilities. If you haven't been to this little college town in the Green Mountains, you're missing a gem. They have a great farmer's market on Saturday, overlooking the river.
Maybe I can get DH to go.
Back at it tomorrow, you know what my father said.
There is no rest for the wicked.
