Hen-Side The Beltline Tour D' Coop

A very enjoyable day . My daughter and I went to the Tour D'Coop in Raleigh today. It is sponsored by Whole Food market, it is to support Urban Ministries of Wake County. ( The tour consist of chicken coops located in the downtown Raleigh inside the 440 beltline chicken coops. We had a great day! This year they had 20 coop's. My daughter and we made it to 14 out of 20 coop's. If you visit you will see a few of the coup's. I am posting a picture of coop #14 tonight and will post other picture's later. We had a great time and had a chance to see great chicken coups and also great garden's! I feel the need to get to work on my back yard! Before we started the tour we made a quick trip into Great Yarn a wonderful yarn shop! Beautiful yarn and the woman in the shop was very friendly! The yarn was beautiful ! We stopped at Mellowmushroom for lunch we had the spinach-artichoke dip and funky chicken pizza. It was great. I want chickens too! Posting a picture of coop #14.

Time For The Gusset

So on Saturday I finished the heel flap, turned the heel, and picked up the stitches on my sock. I am ready to shape the gusset. I brought another skein of sock yarn Harry Potter Opal. Just as soon as I finish my sock I plan to start another pair and promise it will not take a year for me to get the done. I spent a great day yesterday getting help with my sock and then with my daughter and Cece. I will post a picture of total cuteness tonight. We went to visit my grandmother today, it was a good visit. I am reading Bring Your Own Poison, by Jimmie Ruth Evans. The fourth in the trailer park series.
