We're in Boise this weekend visiting family. Gary's dad is getting stronger and we're hoping he will soon be able to have the surgery to correct his hip and get him going again. He's determined to get back on that cruise ship and get through the Panama Canal! If that desire gives him the mental and emotional strength to improve his physical condition, well, "You go to it, Dad!"
The weather here has been beautiful. Almost springlike temperatures - almost. So we left the jackets in the car for our shopping jaunts. The main objective this trip was to find new bedding for dd Melanie. The plan is to redo her room, but we hadn't found the right bed set, so no progress has been made yet. Thankfully we found a very nice set, in the price range (!) at KMart! Yay!! Now we can go forward with picking paint and wallcovering. :D
Of course, a trip to Boise isn't complete without a trip to the LNS. Lucky I made it as I learned they'll be moving to a new space, but just down the strip mall a ways. Bought a few pieces of linen, needles, and some lovely silks - her AVAS was on sale so how could I pass that up!! Pictures to follow when we get home. Unfortunately, her inventory continues to decline, and I didn't see anything new in the store from my last visit.
Hope all of you have had a wonderful, stitching-filled weekend, or at least filled with some kind of fun! Thanks for all your lovely comments!
