Why yes, I WILL have a plateful of bagels and a side of bacon, please. With a pastry for dessert. Two coffees because I'll be too full to get up and refill a single cup, bwhahaha!
A new sno cone place opened up in our town - Bahama Bucks. As with any new eatery, it was packed, but we were hot enough on Sunday to brave both the crowds and the wait. It was good, I'll give them that, but I think we'll wait until the excitement dies down to brave that craziness again. They write your name on the cup when they take your order. I could tell that they were making ours (based on the blue bottle of flavoring), so when they called out "Shelby, your order is ready" I went up to get it (yes, I answer to Shelby, Sally, Sherry...I really should give out Paco as the name as it's less likely to be messed up). Another girl, apparently really named Shelby, came up and tried to claim our sno cones, but looked confused because she didn't order anything blue. Two Shelbys in the same place...who would have guessed?
Old what's-her-face and a refreshing sno cone.
This was cool - color-changing spoons that turned from blue to purple when they got cold!
Sit and Knit update: Last week I made two hats for my mom - one was a Mother's Day present and one was for her birthday, which was Wednesday. I forgot how satisfying it is to knit a hat - they come together so quickly! The first one is made with Madelinetosh yarn, which I LOVE to knit with. Color is Steam Age and the pattern is Fisher Cable Hat:
Please excuse the bags under my eyes - I'd been up since 3:11 am on the day these pictures were taken. Cute hat though, right?
This pattern had some cable work on it, which I really enjoy doing.
I used Malabrigo Rasta yarn for the second hat. I love that yarn, but it does show wear by way of massive fuzziness (I'm constantly pulling off fuzz from the throw that I made with Rasta), so I'm hoping that in hat form, that issue will be minimized. Color is Arco Iris and the pattern is Sugar Pine Hat:
Now this hat ought to keep my mom warm in the winter - she goes on walks year-round (except for icy days), so a warm head (and ears) is a must!
Chunky yarn looks so cool to me - I love how you can see every stitch! Including top view just because I think it looks cool.
Big day in store for tomorrow - we have 4 and 7 miles on tap, which is new long distances for many of our runners. Plus we're bringing in breakfast tacos for a post-run reward...gee, I wonder if my bagel guy will miss me?
Have a great weekend!
