Yesterday was a lot of fun,

Pharmaknits picked me up about nine, so we could get an early start on our day. We headed north and managed to fit in a trip to Costco, Trader Joe's, two Half-Price books, and lunch. I was happy with a find of some nuts for granola, mini-peppers, and a few other food items. I also scored on a wonderful cookbook. No, I have never checked this out of the library, I don't think they even have it. Several years ago DTE and I were at a Boarder's books and they had a copy that now belongs to her. DTY really enjoyed borrowing her sister's book and cooking from it, so I obtained a copy for her via ABE Books (I think hers came here from across the pond). Well, I have borrowed said book from both of them and copied recipes on occasion over the years, but now I have my very own!
After lunch, we went to Knitter's Palette for WWKIP. We met a lot of folks, some that were new to us, and at least one that used to be pretend and now she is real! Fortunately several of the new friends are now living in my computer too. It was wonderful to spend a day going to new place with a friend and making new ones along the way. We are all looking forward to WWKIP next year (Hopefully we will see the big city folks before then though.)

Of course such a wonderful day with such beautiful weather has a tendency to involve insects. This beautiful little guy had a good time wandering about on my hat

and some construction was happening at home while I was away. (There had been none Friday or before I left yesterday morning. I never cease to be amazed how fast they build stuff.) After the activity around it for the evening settled down, I went ahead and sprayed it. I don't usually go for toxic chemicals, but since it is hanging from the molding of my garage door, I wasn't looking forward to the time it would fall down on me if I didn't do something soon.

Neat! I'm glad you now have your own copy of that cookbook.

That beetle on your hat is just spectacular.

Looks like a good time... except for that BUG! Eeewwwww! :P

Good thing you sprayed. You wouldn't want them coming in the garage when you open the door.
