The drive down to Kelowna was pretty good once I finally left the snow gently falling behind. Stayed with friends, dropping the two computers off to be 'trained'.
Set off at 7 am this morning, braving the Coquihalla (mighty mean mountain road). There was some snow/slush/nastyness but only part way.
Got to Chilliwack where I easily found the address of the new home for the spinning wheel and loom and had a bit of a visit with the new owner. Took one of her spinning wheel hooks as part payment. :) If I could remember the vendor who is carrying them at Madrona, I'd mention it here but I don't. (Jude? Are you reading this?)
Generally the weather was good, the roads clear and I made it to Tacoma by 4 pm to register. Wandered the vendor hall eventually meeting up with my hostess. In the demo area we talked to a couple of people we knew and then one of them said she was on the way to crash Syne Mitchell and Selah Barling's class so Betty and I tagged along. :D Great fun to see some of the garments that had been made.
Afterwards Betty attended a meeting and I crashed that. It was great seeing the show and tell.
Now we've stayed up way late visiting but I'm headed for bed now. I was informed that I should get to the hotel by 8 am to make sure I get a parking spot. I also realized I crossed the border without any US cash so I should really find an ATM although so far everyone has taken a credit card.
At least I remembered my passport!
And Doug was dealing with 6" of fresh snow this morning. Poor boy. (Did that sound at all sincere????)
