In which my terrific Thanksgiving holiday has rendered me sick and with little knitting to show for having had an entire week off.
Highlight no. 1: The High Museum of Art.
The Louvre Atlanta exhibit was pretty cool.
The High has an excellent collection of Contemporary art to ponder.
Sunny atrium in the High.
Awesome Alexander Calder installation.
Rodin statue and gorgeous fall colors at the High.
Highlight no. 2: The Grit.
My favoritest restaurant ever. Pure vegetarian-hipster heaven. I do miss the days when I could eat here any (and every!) day I pleased.
Highlight no. 3: My sweet old orange house in Addieville.
I lived in this teensy, single-room house during my undergrad years in Athens. Did I mention it's a mere block from The Grit? Ah, perfection.
Highlight no. 4: Downtown Athens and shopping at my favorite Downtown Athens store, Helix.
Mmmm...drool-worthy set of danica expresso cups.
Highlight no. 5: The Fountain.
Awesome. Did not disappoint in the least. No rants or overlong criticisms about this one.
Highlight no. 6: Frolicking in beautiful Georgia fall weather.
Two Falls in one year...sweet! We got to Georgia right when all of the leaves had fallen off the trees in Philly. How nice to play for a week in more beautiful Fall weather!
M and I had so much fun running around seeing things that I forgot to knit while on vacation... I did get the first Hedera finished and started the second one, but the progress is too scant to bother showing. I should have some awesome purply Hederas to show off soon, though! And while I didn't have much time to knit this past week, I was able to visit a new knitting store in Atlanta called Knitch (thanks for the heads-up on that one, Leah!). It's an awesome, awesome store... one of those rare yarn stores that is actually a cool, comfortable place to sit and knit. Of course, I didn't have time to sit and knit, but what a lovely place to do so! I managed to survive the store without emptying my wallet (boy, did I ever show restraint!), but I did get a few knitterly souveniers that I can't wait to put to good use!
Now it's off to nurse my cold and catch up on my work...and resume reading all of your awesome blogs ~ can't wait to see what everyone has been up to!
(Wow, this must be the most non-Thanksgiving-y blog post ever... I swear I hung out with family and ate pie and vegetarian stuffing 'til I nearly burst!)
