Last day of tax prep in Milbridge! It is going well, our last customer is here now. Long season, it seems, but the end of tax season means spring is here. Right?
Anyway… since work is on the list, not much else is.
I have to stop at the grocery store on the way home, and then will be making shrimp alfredo for supper.
Then I will crash on the couch with the knitting and the cats and chat with A.
Tomorrow is a different story, so maybe I should be doing Saturday lists? Well, tax season is over, so it is too late now. 🙂
We have to get the snow tires off tomorrow – did I say, spring is here? Yes indeed. Good bye noisy studded snows and lousy gas mileage.
Then we will go over to one of our favorite take-out places (pre-season) – Jordan’s – another sign of spring, they are open. It isn’t spring unless you are standing around outside in your jacket, hat and mittens, waiting for your take out food and ice cream. And it IS spring.
Since we will be taking 2 cars, I might get to sneak over to the Craft Barn, who knows? I think I want more of that pink yarn…
Started this yesterday but never finished it. I did go to the grocery store, hungry, big mistake, but now we have all sorts of interesting food. lol not of the healthy variety
Spent the whole morning knitting at Harmon’s Tires, where Heather works the counter. She is the world’s best customer service person – lots of fun and efficient, too. We enjoyed a long visit with her and now have two cars with no snow tires and most of a hat done. Got new tires on my car – “green” ones, which should reduce my gas mileage. I track it, so will know. Certainly, the car is so much quieter – I had to turn the radio down!
We did get lunch at Jordan’s – FREEZING cold. We ate inside, but it was great to eat juicy burgers and freshly made fries.
We stopped over at the Orland School Open House – big book sale at the library – I spent 4 dollars and got 16 books – a variety of things – some from my childhood, some for little niece E to dust off for years to come. 🙂 The school is great – it’s closed now, but the classrooms are available to rent for office or studio space. The town is really committed to making the building useful, not turn into a mouldering ruin. Makes me want to start a business or have a huge studio or something.
Anyway, no trip to the Craft Barn, but I did get home and figure out that I won the bet with A on the women’s basketball tournament – A can not catch me. Add $50 to my craft stash! So, I hopped right on to Halcyon and ordered the ball winder I wanted. And as long as I was paying shipping, I ordered a couple of skeins of bulky Lamb’s Pride. I am collecting a pile of random blues, grays, and purples to make a blanket. And there is a crochet-a-long I want to participate in coming up, so I need to collect faster rather than slower on that score. 🙂 check it out at about the CAL & some yarn ideas.
I have never participated in a kal or cal so I am looking forward to it. Been wanting a big warm blanket on the couch, so I will be making one. And crocheting one is a whole lot faster than knitting one!
