A good Thursday

We've been feeling a little house bound for various untold reasons, so we decided to visit Dianne and John at their Black Butte Ranch house. Because our dog-sitter extraordinaire wasn't in town, it had to be a day trip. When we arrived, I made biscuits to go with the excellent salad with grilled chicken, shrimp and a black bean and corn salsa. Delish!

After checking out Dianne's traveling stash (not all her stash gets to travel; some stays at home in Portland), we headed in to Sisters to get a size 13 35-inch needle so Dianne could knit a very long scarf. The guys came with us, and then patiently waited while we finished our visit to The Stitchin' Post, a yarn and quilt shop.

Though tempted by new Needful Yarns magazine, I didn't add any yarn to the stash, but I did head over to the quilt side.

Also added to the stash is another future Tom-shirt.

We had a great day and came home to two very hungry, but happy dogs.
