Well, it seems daughter is settling in and starting to unpack. I think she wants to get at least some things done before she starts work tomorrow morning. She is worried about the dog as she will have to be in the new place all by herself. She is going to put her in doggy daycare for a little while but apparently she cannot start until Tuesday. Hoping that works out too. I had thought about staying a little while longer, but I have a dentist appointment this week to put on my permanent crown and I can't postpone it any longer.
From what I saw of the city she will be living in I really liked it. There seems to be a lot going on and lots of interesting walks and great views of the Mississippi River. While there we also 'discovered' a great craft shop.
Crafts Direct. This place is massive! My jaw just dropped to the floor. I told daughter I will have to visit often just to go to her craft store. It is only about five minutes away from where she lives. This photo is of the main building. To the left is an outlet store of the same place. I was in crafty delight looking around this place.
This is basically just part of the store. They had so much paper and so many rubber stamps. All kinds of goodies I hadn't seen in person before. I am going to have to try to save money so I'll have some to spend. I did indulge and buy some goodies that were on sale/clearance. It is a family owned craft store, so definitely a rarity especially as large as this one is.
We did go look at some gardens though of course they were all covered in snow. I bet in the Spring they will look really beautiful.
I look forward to visiting these when the weather is warmer. I think they will make a wonderful walk.
Talked to daughter this morning. She is trying leaving Shasta alone and seeing how she acts. Sometimes she barks a bit when daughter leaves. Daughter is taping the whole thing so will see how bad it will be. Fingers crossed it will work out.
