It was one of our usual whirlwind weekends that makes me long for the peaceful days of summer or a house bounding blizzard. I like quiet weekends spent at home but rarely do we have those around here once school starts. N had activities both Saturday and Sunday. Saturday was the monthly visit at Tufts. During the school year we meet with a group of Korean students and children adopted from Korea. There is always some delicious Korean food and really fun games. The social time is pretty great too. Sunday was the cub scout rocket launch. The morning was very rainy so we weren’t sure if the event would take place but luckily the clouds parted and the rain stopped long enough for the kids to shoot off their rockets. Sadly I have no photos.
My high point of the weekend was a quick trip to Hobby Lobby in Manchester NH. Once I knew it was there I had to go see what it was all about. The store is HUGE. I have never been in such a large craft store. I thought the seasonal sections were fantastic. They had everything you could want and then some. The other areas of the store were OK. I did think the yarn department was pretty lacking. Compared to other areas of the store, the yarn seemed to be an afterthought. I did see some things I’d never seen before and managed to pick up just one skein of yarn. Patons Lace in the color patina. I plan to make a Wingspan with this for myself.
