This weekend was the kind of weekend you hate to see end. We went to a Tribe game on Friday night. We started the evening with dinner at Local Heroes, which is across the street from Progressive Field. They serve the best fish tacos, especially good with a beer from Great Lakes Brewery. We kind of sped through dinner, because the game was starting soon. As we were paying the tab, we noticed the on the sports channel that game was under a rain delay. What? The skies were perfectly blue and gorgeous when we went into the restaurant.

So we walked to ballpark and found our seats.


And  the rain decided to start


not sure if you can see in the photo, but it was belting down. Luckily our seats were under a overhang, so we stayed nice and dry.

sliderEven though the Tribe lost to The Yankees, it was a fun night.

Saturday was definitely a girls’ day. We started the morning at Aveda getting hair cuts and trims, and then decided to head to Brio for brunch. This is what we ordered


Sweet potato hash with grilled salmon, poached egg and bernaise sauce. Every single mouthful was scrumptious, and I would have licked the plate if I weren’t out in public.


This is Becky’s favorite. Grilled salmon over angel hair pasta with tomatoes and asparagus. Delicious.

After lunch we went to the bookstore and then headed over to the yarn store.


I think this is one of my favorite shops. It is so quaint and is in an area of restored historic buildings. Here is another shop that sells pretty decorative home items.


I am a total sucker for old and historic buildings, and wish that there were more places like this in my area. Most of our area is new and modern with shopping malls and freeways. I love the idea of small towns with historic buildings and town squares.

This is what I bought

bookThe book is Weekend Knitting by Melanie Falick. It is now out in paperback and a little more budget friendly. Lots of great projects that work up quickly. After I finish the Clapotis, I will let you know what I decide to work on.

The yarn is Trekking XXL which I have seen knitted into fabulous socks on Ravelry. The colors are gorgeous, but socks might have to wait til fall.

The rest of Saturday was spent looking at my new book and knitting my Clapotis. Perfect.
