We went to our last (probably) drag racing event of the season this past weekend. For me, getting ready for these trips involves more than just packing some clothes, sunscreen and hot dogs. There is, of course, the books and the knitting.
…means packing the book I’m reading (left), plus the one I’m planning to read next (middle), plus my Nook “just in case”. You just never know. Maybe I won’t be in the mood to read the next book. Maybe I’ll see an ad for the best book ever and will need to purchase it immediately on my Nook so I can start reading it since I won’t be near a book store. You. Just. Never. Know. And how horrible would that be, to be done with a book and not have anything else to read? Just so you know, on this trip, I read exactly two pages of my book-in-progress.
…and not putting beads into my Glitz at the Ritz:
I only worked on this one for a few non-bead rows. Then I only worked on my Ecuador for a little while because the roads in New York and New Jersey were horrendously bumpy and I was getting nauseous. So annoying.
Just like with books, you never know what you are going to be in the mood to knit, or if you will run out of yarn in one project, or finish a project. There have to be back ups. Because who wants to be left with no knitting? Not this girl.
Paul was going to be racing at the Cecil County Dragway in Rising Sun, Maryland.
The first night we were there we went out to dinner at a great seafood restaurant, Woody’s Crab House.
Right after which, Paul reminded me how many people had touched those crayons, and then I had to go wash my hands. I’m much more creeped out about that stuff these days!
We had tons of fun, pitting our car next to our friends Denny and Renee. And when Denny’s car broke, Paul had tons of fun helping him fix it:
They were both disappointed to find out they were paired up early in their elimination race, hoping to race each other in the final instead. Paul won that round, but was out the next round. They both won a little gas money so that was great!
Just a little more knitting on my Ecuador on the way home, before the bumps started:
Overall, a great weekend of racing and we are looking forward to next season!
