Many of you likely already know that this year's Spa, Knit and Spin is coming up this next weekend (Ravelers - there's also a Ravelry group for this here.). They've moved the venue this year from Portland up to Freeport, and I had been looking forward to attending, since it actually falls on my week off. This also turned out, however, to be the best week for me to go to South Carolina to visit my maternal grandparents.
It's been very nearly a year since my last visit, and since they're 93 and 88 and not in the best of health, there was really nothing to decide. So I'm looking forward to a few days of grits, eggs, and toast for breakfast, daffodils and Forsythia already in bloom, and spending time with my grandparents and my mother, who just retired three weeks ago and who is currently down there visiting.
News from the World of Candy Bars
Dale Earnhardt, Jr., recently entered the candy bar bidness with the Big Mo' candy bar. I wonder if he knows what "big mo'" means? Is he trying to tell us something? I suppose it doesn't really matter, since I now must buy one.
