Take Me To Powell's
I Want To Go To Lint
At last, a post from the missing blogger.
I had a great weekend in Portland. First I got to see Amber and Seth, and their adorable kids, Beryl and Fisher. Then I drove over to stay with Candice and Mark, with another helping of adorable kid - in the form of Eden, 7, and Scarlett, 1. Candice got some great photos of the Barbie fun I had with Eden, so that's something for you to look forward to later in the week!
In addition to playing Barbie's, we got out and about in Portland, two big girls and two little ones. We spent a LOT of time in Lint, one of my favorite yarn stores, and Candice and I laughed about how this was one of those annoying grown-up things that kids get dragged along to. Eden was very good and patient about it, though, certainly better than most of the grown men I know. Walter being an exception.
We also went to Powell's, of course, where I dropped another $100 (the yarn store also left me out $100) on all sorts of goodies, including an old copy of the Wizard of Oz, like we had as kids, and Ozma of Oz. I also bought some poetry, a book of essays by Virginia Woolf, and other things.
More about Portland as the week goes on...
