No pics today (although I need to take some and get them posted). But I do have an excuse. I was homesick and so, at the last minute decided to drive 760 miles south to see my Mom and George. I love driving so having an excuse to rent a car and drive for a full day and a half (and get to do it again this weekend) has been so great. No knitting in the car - hard to do when you're the one driving and you have a healthy respect for the fact that you are travelling at 70 mph (or thereabouts) but lots of music and loving the ipod with the movies and tv shows and going through countryside that I've never seen before.

It's a bracing 58 degrees (North Texas is having a cold spell) and I'm trying hard to cope. (I do whatever it takes for family.)

Got to visit S.W.A.K. in Oklahoma City yesterday. Wonderful shop with lots of character and warmth and friendliness. You know, you go into new yarn shops and they're almost always one of two ways - either they're noses in the air and rude or they're warm and friendly and inviting. This was definitely the latter. I didn't take too long but it was a wonderful experience along the way.

Today it was venturing out to the Recycled Books here in Denton. I love this book store and, if you're a knitter in the area, they've actually got some decent knitting books in the art section. Life don't get much better than this!

Happy Holidays to everyone. I hope you have a wonderful day.
