On the way to the Vay-Kay

I really really really need this vacation. I had two days off this week to get ready to leave. My priorities changed on Tuesday when I got a call that a friend was dying. I spent that time with her to offer some help and to say goodbye. She did something for me when I met her that I thought I would never be able to repay... I'll just say that karma came full circle.














That is my stuff waiting to go in the Pathfinder. Minnie totally knows that she is going too.
I'm not sure what I'm forgetting to pack. I'll let you know when I discover it. See that Barbara Walker book? I've fantasized that she is going to be staying in the room next to mine and I'll bump into her in the hallway. "Hey Barb...how about signing my book and a picture or two???" Hey, it could happen!!!!

I better turn the lappy off and get it ready for the trip. First stop is Tulare (it's half way to S.F.)

oh, I almost forgot...the contest. Leave a comment while I am gone. 8/1 - 8/11 (to be fair keep it to one comment per post please)

I will number each and every comment. I am going to bring back an extra skein of yummy sock yarn and choose (via random number generator) one person to win the SWAG!!!!!

I'm sorry to hear about your friend, but I'm glad you were able to see karma go a full 180.

Have fun at the summit and I hope you meet Barbara Walker and happen to have your book with you at the time so she's even more impressed!

Found this via Ravelry...

Almost completely random, at my old high school one of the service clubs had a program in which they put pink flamingos on people's lawns (donate to get them placed). Upon doing this, a note would be left explaining why you just got a flock of flamingos...

With the tagline "You've been flocked!"

It's what I thought of when I saw the title of your blog :)

I hope to see pictures from Sock Summit! Have a good time!
