It was cold this weekend, but that didn't stop the adventures!
The sun was out by the time I left the house for Stitching Together at Sacred Space in Greenville. As we all sat and knitted, we watched out the window as the winds grew stronger, whipping the dust on the road around. We could see black clouds forming on the mountain tops, all signs of a storm coming.
But it didn't matter to us, we were warm inside, happily knitting away.
After Stitching Together, I had the brilliant idea to drive to Chester. Forget Me Not, my favorite second hand store, was having a sale. . .everything in the store was half off!
"Come on, honey, you want to go?" I asked my Faithful Sherpa. "It'll be fun."
We hopped into the car and drove the 30 minutes north of our house. I love hunting in second hand stores. You never know what great things you'll find! And I found some great ones! I'm working on an art installation of knitting with weird stuff, and I found the perfect weird stuff, extension cords, and irons! I can't wait to start this project!
Around 3:30 we started back home.
The weather was a little different by the time we hit the boat launch at Lake Almanor. It was snowing like crazy. And right on cue, my new truck had a mechanical malfunction.
Just as it started snowing, the fan for my heater/defroster decided it didn't want to work. It would try, oh how it would try. Every once in a while, the fan would kick on for about 20 seconds, blast hot air then stop.
So I took my long light wiper, brush, ice scraper thing-a-ma-bob, put a rag on it, and I wiped down the front window while my Faithful Sherpa drove.
Yup, that's teamwork right there!
We kept laughing about the situation, and how we brilliantly Macgyvered a fix. By the time we got home, the snow started slowing down a bit. We headed to the gas station to fill up, just in case the power went out, we stopped at the grocery store and bought munchies, and headed home to a nice warm fire. It was the ending to a perfect day!
I hope you enjoyed your weekend as much as I enjoyed mine!
