Even when there are no pumpkins I love being in Half Moon Bay. I have been down a lot these last few weeks with my shoulder issues. The pain is so bad when I type, knit, do any kink of art. Hell just sitting here since the surgeon took me off work on Wednesday, it just hurts to BE. I haven't done anything fun...So even though my shoulder is still hurting I wanted to DO some thing.
My daughter met up with me early and we went to Half Moon Bay. I wanted to have breakfast at my fav diner, the cook was singing every song in the kitchen playing on the jukebox. It made us smile. We had way too much food, but it was divine! And a little Kona coffee helps the day get started! It was a little overcast just how I love it. The shops were sleepy and slow to opening and a wonderful lazy way to walk through the day. First stop Hey Jude. I love the lady in that shop. She is fun. Desi whined for the teal closh hat so of course I bought it. It is a beautiful hat, I wish I would have bought the black for me!
Then a leisurely stroll down the lovely flower lined street to Posh Moon...which always makes me SWOON, if you get a chance to go to HMB stop in on Posh Moon if you want a little breeze of France! They are located at 519 Main Street and their windows are always inviting! When we first got to HMB they were closed but while we ate, they opened!!!! OPENED!!!! Red every where for Valentines Day...and the most lushious clothes EVER!!! I have to tell you I fell in love with the clothes! I got so lucky, I got a pair of fancy ruffled RED leggings, and a blk silk skirt, also found a beautiful green beret that matched my outfit! I can't wait to be able to do some silk ribbon embroidery on it! So I will have a red beret with ribbon flowers, my black beret with knit around the top and this green beauty! They were able to order some custom style pants that have pockets sideways, and are awesome on, I needed a bigger size and they had this beautiful top over frilly thing that can go over skirts or pants or dresses! I am SO excited they can be in my size! It is so my style! AND reminds me a little of Magnolia! Frilly lacy yummy items! The gals in the store were so nice to me, they were telling me how much they loved my style, my use of color, and being fearless! How great is that really? AND they loved Desi's hat and scarf! I love being around artful women!
Then we then walked down the street to the yarn store! COMA INDUCED!Fengari IS my fav yarn store! I walk in and always see something I want to make! I wish I had taken photos! I found a beautiful seed stitch scarf, so I bought the yarn even if they didn't have the apple green I wanted...It is a beautiful simple scarf and I am excited about trying it out. I can't wait for my shoulder/arm to feel better! GRR because right now it is hard to knit! AND I am going to try to find the color yarn online, apparently they are discontinuing the yarn and it is beautiful and SOFT!!! I am sad I found it at the end of the run! The seed scarf is so beautiful I can't wait to try it!
Then we stopped in at Abode...fell in love with items we couldn't afford, but I found some things for Ellen's alter for Tuesday. A broken wing and rock that says PEACE. Then we limped to Tokens...Desi started to not feel good so she waited for me outside. I LOVE Tokens! It is a bead, mystic, clothes store! They have great ethnic clothes that I adore! I found some more rocks with words for the Alter and a buddah. Now I just need to get some bamboo and a table cloth for the event. It started to drizzle a bit...a perfect day! Before we got home, I needed ice cream so we stopped at Dairy Queen for a quick soft cone! Perfect ending. Desi wound our yarn when we got home since I can't use my arm to do it...and now I am searching for some patterns...a cowl hoodie!
