I was on my way to meet Peter after work and wound up in the middle of some festival/fair/parade thing happening in Arlington--you'd think that might be a rare occurrence, but that sort of thing seems to happen to me all the time. Actually, Peter and I are always baffled that we never seem to know stuff is happening until we're right in the middle of it. You'd think we live in a cave or something. Which we sort of do. Anyway, I was driving around a detour and ended up in Rosslyn where there's an awesome yarn bomb happening right now.
I only took photos of this one block, but apparently it continues on to the next block as well. And they even partially covered a large sculpture in the middle of the street, so I'll definitely have to go back.
We decided to go for a walk on Sunday to get away from the paint fumes for a while and came across lots of pretty flowers. It may officially be fall now, but there's still lots of things blooming here.
Other noteworthy events: I finished up the magpie brooches I blogged about last weekend. I'll post a pic after they arrive at their destination. I have no idea whether the awesome lady who ordered them reads my blog or not, but it's better if they are a surprise, no? Also, we finally watched Frankenweenie, and I thought it was really cute. I'm so excited it's finally October and lots of good Halloween movies will be on soon. And I had my first obligatory pumpkin spice latte this year. I have a love/hate relationship with that drink. The first sip is delicious, and then about halfway through I start to feel sick. And I'm convinced if I ever actually finished a whole cup I'd probably die. But I must have a short memory when it comes to coffee drinks because I got one last year. And I'll probably get another one next year too. ;)
Hope everyone's having a good week so far! xo, Mary
