Like I Needed More

The bad news of the weekend was that Jamie couldn't fly out to spend the weekend with me as planned. She wasn't feeling well and had to cancel her trip. The good news of the weekend was that I went ahead with our planned trip to western Massachusetts anyways.

Shortly after getting off the highway, I made a wrong turn and encountered this ominous road sign. Luckily it didn't set the tone for my solo weekend. I turned right around and found my way to Webs. Oh, how I love Webs. They have the greatest deals and the hugest selection. Hours tick by unnoticed when I am in that place. With the aid of the awesome shopping list function of Ravelry, I was a well prepared and focused shopper. Almost everything I bought was for a specific pattern or was for a specific purpose.

After a short yarn sensory overload recovery period at the hotel, I headed out to downtown Northampton for some shop browsing, wine purchasing and dinner eating. I finished up the night drinking wine, eating an amazing slice of raspberry chocolate cheesecake and knitting in my hotel room (king size bed with down pillows!).

The next morning, I woke up to about 8 inches of new snowfall. I checked out of the hotel and after burning mega calories trying to unearth my car, I headed out to breakfast. I had scoped out the breakfast menu at the Haymarket Cafe when I bought my dessert the night before, so I knew I was in for a treat.

It amazes me how the price of things adjusts when you get outside of the Boston area. This delicious french toast breakfast with a fresh-pressed apple juice was just over $8!


  1. I love Haymarket! If you are there at lunch or dinner, I highly, highly recommend the Baked Tofu. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it. Glad you had a good weekend!

  2. That anonymous comment is from me... Silly computers...

    love ya,
