A few of the ladies from church invited me along for an adventure; to find a previous member's new residence in Mayo, Florida, and take her out to lunch. She is 91, widowed and need I say desirous of visitors to her assisted living home.........I also had to co-pilot on this 3 hour trip and so had the best view of all the wildflowers along the road! (I think they are wild phlox(pinks) and coriopsis(yellow).
The majority of our 170 miles one-way trip was through countryside; dairy farms, chicken farms and small state parks/springs. It was just beautiful!
I took along my knitting and finished the harvest socks.......though with temps in the 90's, I didn't rush to wear them!
On the way home I started a comfort shawl with some leftover yarns (I am trying to make this the year of the total destash!) It took me a bit to adjust from the number 1 sock needles to the number 13 with multiple-strands project but I did it!
It was so good to be with other women-to share, laugh and just enjoy each other's lives. I think we need to do this again.
