I have not been able to add to my journal for 3 days, not because I did not want to, but aol would not allow me to. My "add entry" tab, just disappeared.
I had a great weekend. The yarn and Craft Box in Pawling, my favorite yarn shop, has had great sales going on since Thursday, and while the sale was going on, we were doing some workshops. I love teaching so it was fun for me.
The highlight of my weekend was a visit from a long lost friend. Val and I worked together years ago in Bloomingdale's, but as sometimes happens, we lost track of each other. She recently found me on the Internet, wrote and we re-connected. Yesterday, along with a friend, Rina, Val took a ride up to visit me while I was teaching in the shop. Well, she said it was to visit me, but she took the opportunity of the great sales to enhance her stash :-). We were able to grab a quick lunch together and were able to catch up on each other's lives a little. We vowed to do it again soon, and I might have even convinced Val that she should attend the knit/crochet conference in NH in July.

I did not want to see Val leave, what a great day.
Enjoy the rest of the evening.
PS: I forgot to mention that Val was a young college girl and I was already the mother 4, one heading for college, when we met.
PPS: The sale at the Yarn and Craft Box is still going on, continues through Monday, April 28th.
