Because we had one of those 'not so nice' weather weekends there was no trip into the mountain wonderland. The mountains were shrouded most all weekend. A little scattered rain and lots of clouds was, at least, better than the inversion. While Saturday wasn't too exciting, Sunday was loads of fun....because Steph was in town! That meant we had an extra Stitch 'n Bitch day (made even more fab as I missed last Tuesday), and we know there is nothing better than 'hanging' with the grrls. Erin came by too, which was great because we hadn't seen her in so long. Now, doesn't she look just super in the shrug she made from Scarf Style? We'll be missing her soon because just as soon as that baby comes she'll be on her way to a new adventure far, far away. It was so nice to be with the grrls as I had missed their laughter, chatter and witty remarks.
Smith and I decided to run to our favorite local book shop, The Kings English. It's a great place housed in the midst of SLC's older and more wonderful neighborhoods. Inside there is room after room full of books. We miss the cat who used to sleep on one of the many chairs, as she was there for nearly 20 years watching over the books and patrons. After spending some time and deciding on our purchase we then headed to Marshall's cousin, Emilie's for a visit. She has lived for 85 wonderful years and is doing very well, thank you! Her home is like coming into a museum full of fabulous art and artifacts. We enjoy her quick wit, quick mind and always joyful spirit. The next stop was home where I did get to knit the rest of the day away. So, there you have it, the mundane life of Smith and Smith when the mountains are not an option.
