Nice WeekendMany folks know that Thaddeus' birthday is on Valentine's Day, so this weekend was a double holiday for us.
We've never placed a lot of emphasis on birthdays or Valentine's Day, so there wasn't a lot of pressure, but it turned out to be a delightful weekend.
Despite the ridiculous amount of snow and the even more ridiculous state of Delaware closing down roads, I was able to get home on Thursday.
Friday we had Thai food at our favorite Thai restaurant. We also got to see an amazing HBO movie about Temple Grandin called, of all things, "Temple Grandin." If you haven't seen it, it's really quite good.
Saturday, we had pizza at the best pizza place within an hour of our house and then went to see another great movie at our local arts cinema called "A Single Man." Colin Firth is wonderful in this movie and Tom Ford did an amazing job of taking his fashion/design sense and putting into a beautifully wrought movie.
We capped off the movie with a later dinner at a great little Indian restaurant.
Finally, on the big day, we exchanged cards/gifts and had lunch at another favorite restaurant (Mexican this time) with our friend Nora.
All-in-all, I couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable long weekend with my lover.
This knitting section is devoted entirely to my sister-out-of-law, who claims I've had WAY too many pictures of my fat feet wearing hand made socks.
Evidently, I was able to finish up the Kureyon socks this past weekend. They turned out quite well (in case you couldn't tell by the minimal number of pictures).
I don't particularly like this yarn. It's rough for wool, it's painfully thick and thin, and this one ball came with only one knot in it, resulting in a complete change in the color-sequencing. I'm hoping that the first washing will soften up the sock fabric.
