We made the trip to Calgary area one day later than planned. There was a snowstorm in Calgary Monday and we decided to avoid it. Or so we thought. We headed out on the road Tuesday and found the snowstorm between Moose Jaw and Swift Current. But it was okay. Only an hour long drive at 80 kph behind a semi-truck before we drove out of it. Otherwise our trip over was smooth sailing. Stopped at the Swift Current and Medicine Hat malls to do some shopping and to stretch our legs. Arrived in Calgary area by suppertime. Our hosts fed us a wonderful supper and we chatted the evening away, while knitting.
Hubby and I have been busy visiting IKEA in Calgary, checking out their furniture. When we move we want to leave most of our furniture behind. We’re checking out what we might replace it with and how much it will cost us. In case you’re wondering, it works out to about $1500-2000 per room to furnish an entire room. We decided to keep our old Billy bookcases because they are 1.5″ deeper and more stable than the new ones.
We also visited Okotoks and stopped in at the Heartland Cafe for tea and dessert. I had the best Carrot Cake with Pecans there. And huge slices! After snack I headed to Unwind Wool, while Hubby headed to the bike shop. I found some of the 150th Birthday yarn from Fleece Artist there and purchased enough to make quite a few hats and neck warmers. I have plans to gift these ones.
Since being here I have finished another homespun hat and started a homespun garter stitch scarf. Hope to finish it by the time I go home.
I hope everyone has had a good week and will continue to have a great weekend! Take care and God bless.
