We made it to Wisconsin despite our flight being cancelled due to snow in Denver. The closest they could get us was Chicago! We rented a car and drove the rest of the way through sheets of rain. Better rain than snow.
More on the wedding in another post - it was a wonderful mixture of family and tradition, so missed because we made the choice long ago to move far away. Today is the yarn crawl and tomorrow on to Rochester MN for a few days.
I bought a new black dress for the occasion since it was an evening event. Showing it to Bryant:
"Mom it looks like a witch's dress."
I'm thinking, how appropriate for a Halloween season wedding, but don't want to give his comment credence by verbalizing it.
"Should I wear my gold dress shoes or get some black boots (meaning little ankle boots with sensible heels)?"
"Depends if you want the dominatrix look." Did I spell that correctly?
Dad says "When I was 16 I didn't even know that word existed."
"Maybe it didn't back then," replies quick Bry.
Knitting with some lethal looking size 17 needles, I suggest I wear them as a necklace for my dominatrix look.
Bryant, who regularly makes fun of me photographing my knitting in a variety of "poses," quips in his mommy imitation voice, which sounds like nails on a chalkboard "Here is my yarn being punished."
Then he realizes, "Hey Mom, you're going to be there for Halloween."
"Yes," I reply, I'm taking along an orange scarf, a pointy hat and a broom to go with my dress."
