Yes, I know. I know, I have not been writing again for almost a week. Thankfully this is simply because there were things happening and I had no chance to get them down on my blog to share them with you.
Last week on Wednesday I got to travel to Raanana to visit The Gourmet Yarn Shop. What a wonderful place and what an appropriate name! I enjoyed this trip very much and will write about it and post some photos in a little while. And yes, since you asked – I did buy yarn.
The next day, Thursday, I went to Haifa where I got to go to Gdil and Markovitz – two of the biggest yarn shops in Israel. I resisted the lure of the yarn, but did buy some very pretty ribbons and some interesting buttons for a felted bag I am planning to knit. The best part of the adventure was a trip to the beach. At 10 P.M. the sea was beautiful, the weather was lovely and there were lots of people around. We sat there and talked, and talked and were sorry to leave.
We had a really nice Friday and Shabbos. DS #1 was back, we had a pleasant meal with our friends and just enjoyed being all together.
DS left again on Sunday and I miss him a lot.
