An Incredible Spring Day

Thursday, March 30th, 2006

Thursday was gorgeous, sunny, and not too breezy. I started the day with my friend Marlene C., putting together a mailing for Working Women Artists. We sat outside at Beaners coffeeshop and put stamps on postcards. A good way to start the day.

I also had lunch with Altu. We had sushi and then went for a bit of a walk around downtown East Lansing. I took her to see my friends Linda and Tom of Mackrel Sky gallery. She’d never been there. It’s a fine, high-end store with all sorts of fine crafts… silversmithing, handcrafted clothing and other fibers, much woodworking and ceramic work. Incredible, and Altu was impressed.

Had another session with CityKidz Knit! program, and two of my adult students… Julie from First-Time Toe Up socks at Rae’s, and Lynnette of Fast Florida Footies at Threadbear, joined the regular crowd. Great fun.

Then went to Rae’s for what I thought would be a little while, but closed the shop down. My friend Cynthia was the last customer so I was actually glad for the delay. We chatted outside in the dark after the shop closed, it was still warm enough to do that. It was good.

Then home for more taxes, I’m getting toward the end of the paperwork I think. Finally.

Friday I take Crochet class. I keep getting stuck at the same place, but I think I’ve maybe figured out what I did wrong. We’ll see what the teacher says.
