I had a great time in Madison! It was very quick, very busy, very productive, very delicious -- with an unexpected focus on food.
Katie & I watched the boys while my sis & BIL went out for dinner at Lao Laan-Xang, and then Kate & I went out to Dobhan -- both are in the Willy Street area on Madison's east side, both are delicious by all accounts!
I was awakened at 7:00 a.m. on the dot this morning by Mack -- something tells me he was held off 'til the big hand hit the 12 -- holding a tangled mass of leftover Misti Alpaca Bulky yarn, asking me if I could knit something. Aren't kids adorable? After he played with the yarn for a while -- winding it 'round and 'round the kitchen island -- I took it upon myself to untangle it and wind it into a ball. Let's just say that that particular yarn seems to take some abuse and handle it well. I stuck that ball in my pocket and maybe it'll become something.
My sister made a wonderful brunch this morning with two different quiches and whole grain pancakes, and then I ran off to my photo shoot. I made a quick stop with Kate at Lakeside Fibers -- I didn't buy any yarn, but I did have a great Maple Cream Soda in the cafe! A small bowl of leftover fish chowder at my sister's had me set for the road and the drive home.
And now I've got to get to work!!!
