Another Road Trip




I just returned from another road trip, this time to NY to see John's Dad who is almost 93. We're great together in the car. John drives well on the highway as opposed to local driving which gets me crazy! We take 2 days to do the 800+ miles so the total trip is a little over 1600. We had great weather although a bit chilly and virtually no traffic delays which is a major miracle. His Dad is doing well and it was fun to see other family members and good friends.

We did do a sizable chunk of holiday shopping for the devoted Mets and Jets fans down here. We can't find the paraphernalia for those teams in SC so we loaded up in NY. I will finish those gifts off with handmade goodies.
And possibly the most productive part of the trip was this pile of 21 mini purses, tissue holders and cell phone holders that I was able to knit...obviously not when I was driving! Some are sewn already but they all need buttons which I did not bring with me. Then onto etsy they will go. Unfortunately I didn't make any sales while we were gone
but hopefully this week will bring some orders. Good to get away...
great to be home!

That sounds like a long road trip, but well worth it.
