April Showers…

Thank you to everyone for deblurking! What fun! So many new sites to check out – I can’t wait to read them all. And for those of you reading, there are also some of my personal favorites that stopped to say hello too – so check out the links!

It was a whirlwind weekend, and there has hardly been a moment to slow down. Tara took us up on our invitation to come and visit and headed to Houston on Friday. Meanwhile, I went and took photos of my friend J.’s three kids, spent some time visiting with J., and then headed down to Galveston to meet up with Shelley to take photos for her storytelling website, Spin Me a Yarn. She is an amazing woman, and I had such a great time with her and her husband. Many magical things happened on the rooftop of the Tremont, which I will share with you in the next day or two.

After our photo shoot, Mike, Tara & Jason arrived and we all went to Luigi’s for dinner after spending some time unwinding in the lobby of the Tremont. A fun little break in Galveston, with perfect weather.

Knitted GoodsSaturday? Saturday was a completely different story when it comes to weather. I normally check the thermometer that hangs outside our back door when I leave. I’ve normally checked the weather online before the Yale Street Market. Not this month. Oops. I knew it was going to rain because Elaine had told me. When Elaine tells me stuff, I listen. (Seriously, Elaine rocks my world.) She told me it was going to be cold too, but we have different views on cold normally – she is cold when I am not – so I figured as long as I had on socks and a sweater, I would be ok. Whoa, was I ever wrong. Seems I missed the memo that the temps were going to be in the 40s! Not the 60s that I was expecting. There were almost no customers, we were freezing, and the rain really wasn’t helping anything. It was a nice treat when Ed came by, as Elaine has not had a chance to meet him in person. I ended up calling Staci for knitted goods reinforcements. She brought me a long sleeve shirt, gloves, a clapotis, and a hat. Then I was fine for the most part – I probably could have lasted the afternoon. We didn’t find out though, as the market ended closing early. We were packed up and gone by 2pm. We sold all of one print by the time we closed.

The perk of closing early was that I got to spend time with Tara, heading to the nail shop for pedicures after I ate some lunch and defrosted. Then we were off to visit with my Mom and discuss decorating ideas for her kitchen, followed by dinner at Lupe Tortilla’s with Mike, Jason & my parents. Mmmm… Lupe’s. Yum! Mike & Jason watched Casino Royale when we got home, but Tara & I did not last.

Tara left early on Sunday, and after I took a nap we headed to my parent’s house for Easter. Delicious food, and it was nice spending time with them.

Now I am making my way through photos. More to come, along with the story of the Tremont rooftop!

So, girl, did you even see that I tagged you for the Thinking Blogger meme? It means you get a badge! The pics I want to see are of DH clowning as he pulled his loose pants up to his chest!

Don’t feel bad…I didn’t check the weather before I left for Easter. I got to San Angelo and all I had were flip-flops….and then we got snow. I was walking through the snow, in flip-flops. I have learned my lesson.
