Ok, so, Maybe we all don't but I know, The Golden Willow Natural Fibre gives you your purchase in a paper bag. So, therefore, I carry yarn... and Addi knitting needles in a paper bag. I know there are others who carry other addictions in paper bags... but I prefer the yarn kind. Here are some pictures of the latest...
|This yarn, Mom and Sharon picked out for a shawl for me. Mom delivered it when she and Dad came to visit. It also contained the correct size Addi turbo for the shawl I was working on!!!|
|This was my own purchase... Yummy blue wool!!|
|This was also my own purchase. Soft squishy cotton... dreamy!!|
|This is wonderful cotton blend, 2 pair of Addi's, stitch holders... and some neat looking Yarn needles... (not a hole for the eye but a loop.. looked like they would be awesome to thread).|

|Moving from the puddle to the rut. LOL|
I was away for a week and a half in the city. While in the city I did that yarn shopping. Other necessity shopping. We took Gwyn to a few different parks to play. She drew with sidewalk chalk all over grandma and grandpa's pavement. We took her swimming at the Sandra Schmirler Leisure Center. There is a fabulous toddler park there outside. Gwyn did a face plant the day we took her to the park outside. She was excited about the park and tripped on a landscape tie that was just sticking out of the ground enough to trip her. She landed flat on her face and her feet went way up... I could have swore that she was gonna be scraped and bloody from the fall... but they have this amazing recycled tired floor and she didn't have a scratch!! Awesome park for kiddles!!!! There is a library. And the pool we loved. So geared for kids. Though, Gwyn so wanted to go down the big slide.. just a little too big and scary yet. But she went down the toddler slide and the little kid slide and also did a tonne of jumping in the off the float/side of the pool. Wonderful fun.
Anyways I shall run, supper is on the go... and all that!
