Today, very dark and early, I headed out on a road trip to visit my family. 15 hours later, i’m thankful to report that everyone arrived safely. It rained most all the time, so I wasn’t able to get any pics of the scenery and today’s pictures are courtesy if a sunny afternoon in July. (It’s what the sides of the road would have looked like had it not been pouring)
For the most part I enjoy road trips. I’m rarely the one driving, so I suspect that’s why I like them. It’s especially nice if there’s interesting scenery. But I also look forward to the long hours of listening to music and knitting. I’m not able to read anymore because I get motion sick, but I can tolerate knitting pretty well. And let me just share this bit of life wisdom which has been reinforced today. Always, always bring more projects than you can do. I strayed from this and only brought a few projects and, in spite of planning ahead, my main project for the day was a bust. Although I already swatched and printed the instructions for my size, once I got going, I knew I was going to need a smaller needle to make it work. I’ll need to get one tomorrow – the Walmart I stopped in didn’t have one. Fortunately I had a spare project or my sanity would have snapped.
Im looking forward to spending the next few days with lots of family… And dogs! Have a wonderful rest of the week!
Blessings to you,
