How was your day, dear?

First, there was the quick trip to the airport. Well, it would have been quick if I hadn't managed to get behind every yay-hoo who thought traveling 3.5 miles under the speed limit would be a good idea.

Then there was the normal errand-type errands; post office, ATM, grocery store. All made just that more difficult/annoying by the excessive heat and unusual-for-AZ humidity.

That was followed closely by a trip to the hair dresser, necessitated by the ill-advised trim of the bangs I had participated in prior to the airport run.

After that I indexed a web site and cursed at the computer for a bit. If the box says 'save as html file' and I say yes, shouldn't it ... maybe ... I don't know ... save it as an html file (as opposed to some type of ^&*#* mystery file the &*^& computer was unable to ^&*^#% read)?

Next, I went to the used bookstore to sell a big ol' bag of books. A big ol' bag of books of which they took exactly 3.

And then everything got all better. Why? Because I got the spend the evening listening to this funny lady.

Stephanie, the Yarn Harlot spoke and signed at the Fiber Factory and it was well worth the rest of the day. I sat and knit on the shawl-that-refuses-to-grow and laughed, surrounded by fellow knitters, SnBAZ members, old friends I hadn't seen in too long and lots of yarn. A perfect end to a very so-so day.

Lucy, meanwhile, stayed home and tried to harness the power of her mind and will kibble into the bowl. It didn't work, so she ate the leftovers from my lunch bag instead.

(Many, many pictures were taken, but not by me. I'll link around once they arrive online.)

your shawl that will not grow is looking wonderful :) and just remember, lace grows when blocked! LOL

I'll try to get my harlot photos up today - I sadly didn't get a photo of her and the sock. I was too slow with the camera. *sigh*

I thought about going, but I'm pretty much a homebody on weeknights. Plus I'm still getting over a semi-loathsome yet persistent virus. (2.5 weeks now!) Glad you had fun.
