A Spontaneous Trip

I played hooky today. Amy called me up today and said "Do you want to go to Driggs and go to the yarn shop and the bead store." I had planned to write all day and almost said no but then I thought oh why not. Driggs is on the back side of the Tetons, These are the Teton Mountains from a distance.

A closer up view.

This is my friend Amy holding this great skein of silk she bought.

We also went to a bookstore called Dark Horse Books, it was really a nice store. I really like independent book stores. I bought this book as a gift for a friend.

I fell in love with this hat. It turned out the pattern for it doesn't exist. The owner had taken a hat pattern and revamped it. So I bought the original pattern and she gave me instructions on how to alter it like she did. I thought that was really nice.

I found this yarn in the .99 bin originally 9.99 what a deal. I will use it as a gift for someone.

It was a really gorgeous day and a perfect way to take a day off. I am really glad I went.

How luicky you are to live so near the mountains.
Looks like you had a productive day, even tho' you didn't write.
I love the Dalai Lama..!

Now that's what I call a productive day, sometimes the writing has to wait while you live your life Kate..
It's so beautiful where you are..
I'd be out enjoying it to..
PEace n hugs, Kai xx

An impromptu trip is called for once in awhile....and you did visit a book store so you were surrounded by words even if they weren't ones you wrote. See, I can always justify a day like this! What a bargain on that yarn!!

This looks like a fabulous day out...beautiful scenery, shopping for crafting supplies and a book store to top it all doesn't get much better than this!
