Refresh Thy Spirit
I was lucky to have two outings in one weekend. On Saturday my husband and I went on a day trip. I find day trips to have the best of everything. I explore, I eat and car knit but best of all I sleep in my own bed. That is a perfect day. Anyways, we planned a day trip to Bethlehem, Pa. Why might you ask? Well since I teach knitting, conversations swirl about yarn. A new friend suggested we go to Bethlehem and check out their yarn shop, historical town and good food. After I researched, I discovered that there was a used music store that would delight that husband of mine. He is always on the look out for more music.
As you can see there's not one photo of yarn or the store. I was too engrossed in shopping to remember to take a photo. However, walking around the town, I was in photographer mode. I was constantly stopping and snapping. The weather was perfect-cold in the shade, hot in the sun. Nearly every restaurant had outdoor seating on the side walks.
We window shopped, we explored, we took in the delightful sights and sounds of a vibrant town. We had a great time being together.
My favorite photo is the one below which is an excerpt from a Samuel Taylor Coleridge poem. Beautiful, isn't it?
Even though I neglected to take yarn shop photos, I did snap a photo of the music store window shop. You see, I was bored to tears in that store. I know it and my husband knows it and if I was to confess I I've whined a bit in the past. It was hot in the store (no ac) and a hot flash was brewing but I was patient because I'm sure he was crying deep down inside sitting on a fluffy sofa in a store full of women while I browsed through heaven (I mean yarn).
That my friends is what marriage is all about.
