Saturday in Spring

Another busy Saturday around here. I had a doctor appointment this morning to get a steroid shot in my right heel (plantar fasciitis again), then Steve, Lindsay, Jonathan and I drove up to Richmond to go out for lunch with Stef. We went to Dot's Back Inn, a place that was featured on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives, that's pretty fun and has good food.

We passed this lavender flower climbing plant walking back to the car; I don't know what it is, but it was so pretty.

Before we headed back home, I popped in to The Yarn Lounge again. I bought a skein of Rowan cashsoft dk in pale pink to make another baby cap, the one from One Skein that I think is so sweet. And I also picked up two skeins of Mission Falls 1824 cotton, one in purple and one in lavendar, also earmarked for a baby gift.

I finished the Owl Baby vest on the way up, so it'll be ready to mail as soon as I give it a little wash tomorrow.
As a random aside, I've been feeling like making some crocheted granny squares for some reason. Not sure where the urge is coming from, but they may be in my future.

Steve and I watched an episode of The Tudors tonight; I rented the first season and we just finished episode three. I'm not sure I'm sold on this series, just a little too much sex I think. Not that I'm against it, it just seems a little forced somehow. Anyway, the jury is still out on it. I think I'd rather get season two of Nurse Jackie. Or some really good Masterpiece Theater videos. What are you watching these days?


  1. That Owl Sweater is so cute.

    Looking forward to the Borgias tonight. I didn't enjoy the Tudors, either. Not sure why. I didn't like the actor who played Henry 8th so that could be it. Guess I didn't watch long enough to get to the sex LOL

  2. I LOVED the Tudors, but I agree that the sex is excessive! I've only seen the first two seasons, but I plan to watch the rest.

    Last night we watched an interesting documentary: Exit Through the Gift Shop, which is about street art.

  3. I tried to comment earlier, but my wifi signal was acting up. So....

    I completely empathize with the foot pain. Once I left my job in the ICU, the pain miraculously went away. I have found that going barefoot worsens PF. Wearing a good pair of sandals or shoes that support the arch is crucial. If you have a pronounced arch, consider Danskos or Keens. Nike soccer slides are supportive for around the house and beach.

    Love, love, love that owl sweater, Rose!
