Today I was treated to my birthday present from one of my friends. Yes, I am well aware that my birthday is in July, as is she!
Her gift to me the past two years has been a 'mystery tour'. She picks me up in the morning and off we go to explore someplace totally unknown to me until we get there. Today we visited a small town called Lakefield and explored all the shops. Then she treats me to a nice lunch and more shopping (mostly looking for both of us).
I picked up a couple of things for Christmas presents and purchased the latest 'Knit'nStyle' magazine because I fell in love with the sweater on the cover. It's precisely what I would want to knit for myself and I was quite excited about it...until.....I went online to get the price of the yarn. Oops. At $79 for ONE ball (and I would need four!!) methinks I'll just frame the picture and look at it. No way I could spend that much for yarn - especially when it would also need 5 balls of another yarn that're $9 each. Nope, too costly for my blood, but nice to contemplate anyway. Maybe if I win a lottery??
Anyway, I had a most fun day and have already told my friend that she is more than welcome to repeat the gift next year!
