Road Trip

Well I had a great day! Got up early this morning to meet up with some of the ladies from our department at work and we hit the road and went to hanging rock. The start to the trip was slightly confusing because Jenny is a spend demon and Priscilla and I got left behind. It was beautiful and I understand why Jenny my supervisor loves going up there so much. They have a camp ground and a lot of people were camping out this weekend end. The walk at the lake and the view of the lake was great. Our first stop was Dan River Family Restaurant it was a nice place the food was good and everyone was friendly. Then we went to Priddy's Store that was fun to and I enjoyed looking around , then off to the Dan River it is just beautiful. The waterfall was also very beautiful the walk down to the waterfall was pretty good, but going back up was rough. We spent a lot of time down by the waterfall. On the way back Priscilla and I went a different way so we could go through Lexington and we stopped by Childress Vineyards the place is well for lack of a better word beautiful. I brought two bottles of wine Classic Scupperdine Sweet Red Wine and Barrel Select 2006 Chardonnay. The we went to speedy's for dinner it was good to and I enjoyed my food. So no knitting or crocheting. I am not sure about the rest but I am ready for another road trip.

It's Tax Day!

So at lunchtime today I went to the post office and mailed off the dollar I owed the state of North Carolina!. I did not think they needed until you absolutely had to get the money. I am so sure this dollar will help bring down the states deficit. I just finished reading Flamingo Fatale, by Jimmie Ruth Evans A Trailer Park Mystery. It was great. I have requested the second book in the series through inter library loan at my local library. I plan to participate in the April dishcloth swap. I need to get the yarn my swap partner over on ravelry she likes red's so I need to find either a solid red cotton or variegated with a mix of color. I have the pattern picked out. We have a road trip planned on Saturday with some of the girls in our unit a work. I am excited about the trip and normally I am not the one to get together with coworker outside of work, but I think this will be fun and I plan to take my camera and I am sure we will have a good time. I am posting a picture of the second Beth's Little Star Afghan.
