If you see a whole thing - it seems that it's always beautiful. Planets, lives... But up close a world's all dirt and rocks. And day to day, life's a hard job, you get tired, you lose the pattern. - Ursula K. LeGuin

Road Trip

b and I love a good road trip. I get the passenger seat and, now that we own a GPS, I don't even have the responsibility of navigating.
As long as it isn't too cold, I take my shoes off and get comfy.

I've been known to grade papers on a long drive and sometimes I'll crochet but mostly I let my mind wander.
The borders were all I accomplished on this trip.

Eventually they will be added to finish this blanket.*

This weekend we took a shortish road trip down to see Pumpkin in her new digs. This was b's first visit and Pumpkin was very excited. She told me she had a surprise for me that I would really really like. Lo and behold she was right.

My Favorite Tea-Recently Discontinued**

On the way back we stopped and bought a few bookshelves for the new office. b put them together once we got home.

The Brute approves.

*I started this blanket when Angel was in high school. It was supposed to go with him to college. Now I'm thinking it will be a graduation gift.

**Regular readers may remember that I was desperately looking for this tea, the only tea to truly make me happy, only to find it was discontinued. This may be the last box left in existence.

What a cool blanket!!!

Sorry to hear your favorite tea is no longer available. Maybe there's another brand that makes a similar tea?

Sounds like a lovely road trip!

Don't forget to post photos when the blanket is done!

I hate when my fave things are "discontinued" -- makes me wish I would've had the foresight to buy a boatload of the stuff before it evaporated.

PS: My gram crocheted blankets in that style, they are now heirlooms.

I'm glad you got the tea! Pumpkin is so thoughtful and considerate. I love the blanket, too. The colors are awesome. I was wondering how it went, and I'm glad you posted pictures. Sounds like a great road trip!
