My Day Out

I had to pick up groceries today, since I didn't think it was all that healthy to have yet another meal of salsa and chips, or soup and crackers. So I tried the new Walmart Supercenter in Massaponax (my feelings are mixed about Walmart selling food, but I don't see the big deal really; there's nothing there that's going to lure me away from my usual grocery stores). There's a Sonic across the street. Looking at the sky, you'd think it was a summer day, but it definitely wasn't, so I ate in my car, which is a particular guilty pleasure for me. Nice warm car, music on the radio, and salt on the console (since I have high BP, that salt is a REAL guilty pleasure). If you don't have a Sonic where you are, you're missing out. Frankly, I like good fast food, and their cherry limeade is amazing. They have an old-fashioned drive-in as well as the regular drive-up window, and I was watching a poor waitress manage a tray while on roller skates, in the 20-degree temps.

Since I was so close to my LNS, I dropped by to see if some of the Crescent Colors and WDW threads had come in. I kit my projects up well in advance, so I travel around with a list of the thread that I need. Here's the winter display at my LNS. I got two skeins, but I'll have to wait for the others.

I bought an older Prairie Schooler chart on sale for $2. And I got this, which has been around for a couple of years but I hadn't noticed before. I think I probably noticed it now because of the rabbit who looks like Pink. It's Waxing Moon Designs' "Spring Sampler." I didn't kit it up, but I think I'd like to do it before spring comes.

SONIC ROCKS!! I agree about the cherry lemonade, and if you go to "happy hour" every drink is halfprice...fill 'er up!

That's a cute spring sampler! I'm so jealous ~ I would love to live so close to a real LNS. Shopping on-line is nice...but doesn't quite cut it for me.

That is such an adorable spring sampler from Prairie Schooler. I had never seen it before. It would be such a fun spring project. You just got to love those trips to the LNS.

I'm a lover of all things Sonic as well!

That is the sweetest Spring Sampler. You definitely need to stitch it!

I love Sonic - they have the best cherry cokes and tater tots.
