I have noticed a lot of grumbling in the blogosphere about this earlier daylight savings time. While I never enjoy losing a hour of sleep, I have to say that having daylight later in the day is making me feel recharged. This weekend Evan and I decluttered. I organized my knitting crap into a consolidated corner rather than piles of yarn and knitting supplies distributed in random piles and bag around the house. We opened all the windows and let the house breathe. It was so refreshing.
I haven’t really had a chance to blog about our trip the previous weekend to San Antonio. We saw a few of the sights around town, including many of the area’s original missions and, of course, The Alamo. We did a long wander along RiverWalk. Much of the walk was full of air force men and women in uniform and their families. I was once again struck by how very young they all looked. It was both heartwarming and heartbreaking to see all of the hugging and squeezing and kissing of these service men and women by their family.
The boys were kind enough to let me visit a San Antonio yarn store. Yarnivore is only a short distance from our friend’s home. The proprietor of the store is very friendly and the store, while not huge, had a great assortment of yarns. A bit of everything. I left with a couple of skeins of debbie bliss baby cashmerino (for the knit-off) and a couple of skeins of j. knits sock yarn. I will definitely be back the next time we visit.
Mostly the weekend was a chance to get to see where our friends will be living, where their careers will take their next steps and where their baby will be born. Plus, I got to hear the hearty boy giggle that Evan has when he and B get together and talk about their ridiculous things. It was a good trip.
