Perfect Day

Hello Dear Friends.
I hope that your Saturday has been as wonderful as mine.
I ended up asking my 2nd job to see if the could find some one to work for me last night and I was able to come home and park my butt in my stitching chair.
This morning I met Myra and we headed down the road to Salisbury, NC. Our destination was the Spring Robin Cross stitch store.

This is a wonderful little shop. They have a wonderful selection of frame moldings. They had A great selection of charts, DMC, WDW and GAST threads and fabric.
If you are driving down 85 north of Charlotte, NC you need to stop.
After shopping we went and had a very nice lunch at the Sidewalk Deli. We ha wonderful Greek salads with grilled chicken.
We then headed over to Granite Quarry to see the Old Stone House. Built in 1766 it is very early for this area and looks like it should be in PA and not NC.
I am sure that Myra will be posting more about her trip on her blog. Hop on over to to check it out.
Myra also brought back tho sweetie that she finished for me.

This is a Bent Creek kit that I had stitched up quite a few years ago. It was too big to make into an ornament. She did a wonderful job. Thank you Myra!
She also finished another small kit for me but I am going to stuff it before I share it.

This evening was the annual Relay for Life event in Asheboro, so Rich and I walked around. This is a mural in downtown Asheboro.

This is the park looking down toward the bandstand. They have all the remembrance/ support luminaries set out for tonight.

Here is the booth for my Zumba group. Phyllis, the owner is a colon cancer survivor. Here she is celebrating in front of her booth.

My dear friend that I wrote about in my last post found me in the crowd.

I think she looks great! It was so great to see her.
Bands will play on the bandstand until midnight and they will write the luminaries at 10pm. The weather is perfect, mid 70's with a breeze. A perfect day for this celebration.
I am back home resting now. No staying out late. I am still working on getting over the cold.
Thanks for hanging in with me in this long post. Have a great Saturday night!

Today was wonderful Chris! Thanks again for lunch and driving me around. I didn't know relay was tonight. I sure hope a cure is found for that awful disease.

Even when you're not up to par health wise, you still get out there and enjoy living! Good for you....and all the participants in the relay.

I was just over at Myra's blog - it sounds like the two of you had a wonderful time. I'd love to check out that shop if I ever get down that way. Rest up so you'll be 100% soon!

It looks like you both had a wonderful day!!If we ever get to NC on a genealogy trip,I'll have to remember these places. I do appreciate your walking. I lost my Mom to colon cancer in 1976. You take care to get totally well!

Christina said...

It seems that you're having a fabulous weekend so far Chris!
Hats off to your friends that have come through the other side of cancer. I can't even imagine what they've been through.
The snowman that Myra has finished for you is so cute. I often struggle with how to finish pieces that are a tad too big for ornies.
