......I did the laundry (washers and dryers are free here at the Candlewood). YAY! While the clothes were in the dryer I ran down the road to pick up a bottle of my favorite wine, Beringer's White Merlot only to get back to the hotel and remember that I don't have a corkscrew here OR *gasp* a pretty wine glass!!
So.....after folding the last of the three loads I ran down to the car and poked "all shopping" in to the handy dandy navigation thingy the car came with and lo and behold there were several places to spend money within a 5 mile radius! Now you must understand here that if I should do that very same thing from my driveway at home it would have to reach out about 20 miles to get to the nearest drug store/Walmart...not counting gas stations and dollar stores of course. I haven't been in a Pier One since I worked at one in PA about 6 years ago. They still smell the same in case you're wondering. I bought a stemless wine glass and a pretty white plate that looks like lace along the edge.
I have spent the last 30 minutes taking a picture and trying to load it on to Masterchief's laptop but for some reason it won't recognize the camera card and my laptop is refusing to connect up here at the hotel for the moment so maybe I can get a picture to you later. Sorry.
Anyway....I have already broken in the wine glass and I am happy to report that it works just fine. I think I'll keep it.
I have not started any stitching yet though. I have been spending the last day or two extending my feelers into the area here. Brentwood is beautiful but I have found that the women here dress up in their (almost) very best just to go grocery shopping. I'm not used to that where I live in KY so needless to say I have felt like a bit of a slob in my capri's, Kentucky Cats T-shirt and sandals. At least I remembered to use my tweezers, slap on some deodorant and brush on some mascara before I left the hotel today. Those girls just don't know how lucky they are!
I need to turn the AC back on now. Poor Masterchief has been a bit warm since I arrived here. He likes it cooler than I do but he doesn't complain much. He's more than I deserve!
Hopefully I will have some stitchy news in my next post.
