Our weekend


When I was in college, I used to live in the state capitol. It is a big city, and on weekends I came back home. After I finished my career, I still made the trip to the city once, sometimes twice a week. I was there fairly often. This past weekend, we went to the city to see the Harry Potter movie. Want to know how long since I'd gone there?

The last time I went, it was April and the scenery was brown because the plants were still dry from the winter months...

Three months later, the whole road is green. Luxurious, fresh smelling, damp green. I was like a tourist, taking photos to show it to you (by the way, does it happen to you, that you live something or see something and you immediatly think "oh this would make a great post entry!"? or is it just crazy lil'me?)

The mountains were green, and the road looked like it had just been washed, which it was, because the day before there was even hail! But not today...

It was easy to drive through such roads... so clean and crisp!


We stopped by a town I'd not been to since I was a little girl, and sort of "discovered" this church. It was dedicated to Our Lord of Mercy... seems He's looking for me, cause I keep bumping into Him...

On a side patio of the church, there was this stone cross... it had beautiful native motifs.

On closer inspection, we found this inscription: "Made in 1687. Placed here in 1887". Wow!


Seems like this town has a thing for antiques. This gas pump was on display in the gas station we stopped at. You can see a bit of my little car in the reflection behind it... yup, that bright little thing is mine!


That evening, we went to the movies... I should have remembered that the movie had premiered in Mexico only the day before! the lines were insane! we had privileged tickets, thanks to the generosity of my brother, so we still got great seats...



We went shopping the next day, but Julia wasn't used to going around in the sun all the time and she got tired, so she stayed with her daddy to take a nap.

And we found a tree house...


And I scored some great colors of yarn in a place I had previously not found any nice yarn at all! It seemed like they had ordered what I was looking for, good quality cotton, and they had it ready for me! the owner was so nice he took note of the colors I didn't find and promised to call me and if needed send me the skeins I wanted! YAAY!


And I've started a project that took hold of my mind ever since I saw the variegated violets and pinks of this cotton sportweight yarn...

Sigh! it was such a great weekend! Now if I only had won the Lotto...

Happy hooking, peeps!

Wow, that was a great weekend!
I don't know if I'm jealous of your yarn stash, the landscape or the movie... or everything! How was it?! (HP fan here!)

Hi CT. Beautiful photos. It's great to see a glimpse of your world.

I think that it is a sign of loving to blog when you see things and think "That would make a great blog post!" I do that daily! Even my husband gets into it nowadays. "Don't you want to take a picture of that for your blog?"

Glad you had a fun weekend!
