Just in case you forgot what holiday it is today --- here are pictures of a house in Halifax, VA decorated to the nines! I think they have every Halloween blow-up lawn fixture ever made. Some mornings you ride by and they're all deflated. Looks kind of sad. They do the same thing for Christmas.
Today was another day of driving all over the place. I left home this morning at 6:30 and headed southeast to Louisburg, NC for an 8:00 AM appointment. Then, headed west and then north to Danville, VA for a 3:00 PM appointment. The good thing about all this driving is that occasionally it takes me within stopping distance of a yarn shop. Today, I had just a few minutes to stop at Hillsborough Yarn Shop in Hillsborough, NC.
Hillsborough is a great little town! Very colonial in feel. There's the yarn shop, a wine shop, a chocolate shop, coffee shops, restaurants such as Tupelo's and Gulf Rim, etc.
I enjoyed a brief visit with Anne, the shop owner, who is SOOO nice. I got some skeins of 'quiet' sock yarn. All of my skeins are loud and crazy! I needed some conservative skeins to try and make a couple of pairs for gifts.
My first appointment this morning was 45 minutes late! This gave me the opportunity to finish my sock. Here, Gracie takes a closer look.
Guess what??? This is my 450th post! WOW! It's been so much fun!
My exciting Halloween night consisted of grocery shopping at WalMart. They were already pulling the Halloween candy off the shelves and replacing it with Christmas candy!
Hope you all had a safe and spooktacular Halloween!
