Cape Cod and a Finish
The first day it rained all day. We went to the movies and saw Sarah's Key. It was a good movie but sad too, because it was a storyof the Holocust. Aunt Terri was visiting Aunt Betty and Uncle Fred, so came to the movies too. Even though it was beautiful, AT and I just went to the grocery store and I stitched. Wednesday AB,AT and I went to Sandwich, to the glass museum. Glass blowing is very popular at Cape Cod, though the sand can't be used for glass making. There is too much minerals, and the sand needs to melt at 3,180 degrees Fahrenheit. There was a demonstration on glass blowing and the glass blower made a tiny pitcher. She couldn't guarantee it will survive the cooling process.
After the museum, we went to Marshland. It is a diner and bakery. I had fried clam strips with onion rings, which I wanted for a long time. I can't find good fried clam strips in Connecticut. On Friday, we went to Chatham and drove by the lighthouse and a monument, I think is dedicated to the Coast Guard. Rest of the day was shopping and I stopped at a bookstore called The Yellow Umbrella. It was small but packed with books. We found a Ben Franklin store. It was the only store I found DMC threads. I tried to find a LNS, but the ones I found on the Internet or phone book end up being closed. Saturday we went to see One Day with Anne Hathaway. I love Anne Hathaway. This was a sad story too. I picked both movies out too. Maybe my aunts wont let me choose next time. On the last day, we went to the beach, but to Lake Scargo and not to the ocean. I am not a good swimmer and I prefer the lake. My sister joined us at the lake. She was suppose to sleep over Saturday night. She went to Boston to do an errand with a friend that was suppose be a couple hours but end up being all day. There was ducks too and walk near to us, looking for food. AT and I headed back to Connecticut the next day. You can see more pictures from Cape Cod here.
I own a HUGE apology to my secret penpal. I had joined a secret pen pal exchange on Seasons with My Mind blog. I did not post right away I received this lovely letter .I am very sorry. I promise I will do better in September. I can't wait to get the next one.
This tray I got at Goodwill. It is in very good condition. It was priced at $4 but I got it for $2. Isn't that awesome?! I don't like the design, but I am sure I could change it. There are screws on the side so I don't see why I can't change it.
I hope everyone has a good Labor Day weekend!
