Wonderful Valentine's Day

What an awesome Valentine's Day. Got up early, cleaned up, dressed and off we went - hubby, best friend and myself. We headed off to PA and the farmers market. First stop was breakfast though, at a cute little dinner we often hit before a day of shopping.

Then on to the Farmers Market. There's always so much to see. Ended up with some homemade goodies for snacking, bags of candy for Valentine's treats for friends, produce, homemade soaps for our daughter, and some other delights. Love going to this place, but it's only open on Tuesdays. But as the weather gets warmer the outdoor vendors start showing up and then there's a whole flea market to go through as well. Always a wonderful trip.

And then it was off to Texas Roadhouse for Valentine's Day Dinner. Love love love their food. We had an awesome dinner, good friends, great conversation!!!! Then we did just a wee bit more shopping and then it was time to head back home.

Monday found me attending a class with another good friend of mine. We were learning how to make rag rugs. We purchased the looms from our teacher, whose husband made them for us. The process is interesting, and I thought it was pretty easy. Relaxing. My girlfriend and I both said we could see ourselves sitting and doing this and saying "just 15 more minutes, I'm only going to work on it for another 15 minutes"....and then a couple hours later going "uh oh". I'll take some pictures and post them for all to see as I progress through the weaving process. It's a great way to use up your scraps, and come up with some beautiful rag rugs for your home.
