I’m back from the trip to Madison. I had a good time. We ate dinner at Melting Pot (I hadn’t been to one since Houston), realized that the portions were much smaller at this location than what I remember and what L experienced in Dallas, so we made our own on Saturday night. She also introduced me to Penzey Spices. Wow. They have some really good stuff and the store is really fun to browse through.
We also stopped at Booked for Murder, an independent bookstore that carries only one genre of books. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I had to laugh because they get the same authors to come and sign that we get at my local library. Of course I picked up a couple of things to support them.
Sunday afternoon I stopped by my aunt and uncle’s on the way home. We had a really nice time.
I have today off since it’s President’s Day, so I’ve watched an entire DVD (4 episodes of Veronica Mars), done my nails, worked on the baby afghan, and will meet Patchwork Princess for coffee. I do need to get groceries–so it’s not all fun and games.
There’s a bible study tonight, but I’m not sure where it is. And it conflicts with 24 (which I could tape). Not sure what I’m going to do yet.
