Happy Birthday to Me

Today is my birthday. I'm twenty-two...plus interest.

My birthday wish was to go to a couple of yarn stores in VA Beach.

We left late for the gathering for my husband's office. Therefore, we were not able to make it to the yarn shops before they closed. We did, however, make it to Ewe Knit Kits, so that I could see where the store was! To top it off, I was blessed to meet Linda, LJ!

My husband, friendly extrovert that he is, rolled down the window and told Linda, (didn't know it was Linda at the time) how I had been wanting to get to the shop and asked about store hours. He also told her I had too much yarn. Linda, lovely lady that she is, told him it was normal to have yarn throughout the house. Gotta love her just for that!

She was quite friendly and very gracious, especially since we were two strangers in a car, talking to her after the store had closed.

Since she looked familiar to me, we took a chance and asked her name and found out she was in fact the Linda with whom I had "exchanged PM's" at KR. I'm also a reader of her blog.

It was a wonderful birthday treat for me and I plan to get back to the shop again when they are OPEN. I'm just not a fan of driving through that doggone tunnel!

Thanks, Linda! It was great to meet you!

Well happy belated birthday! And of course you saw me at my best...lugging empty boxes to the dumpster...boxes that had been filled with new Fall yarns that are now on the shelf waiting for someone to purches.... Linda

Let's see...Route 17 via James River Bridge, pick up I664 somewhere around Churchland/Suffolk, then follow I664 until it splits to I64, follow to the I264 exit heading towards Va. Beach and take the second Lynhaven exit, hang a left at the stop light and then a right into Yorktown Commons and you're there. No tunnel!!!
