Our little town of Leonardtown celebrates Earth Day every year on the square. After yesterday’s thunderstorm and the menacing forecast for today, we feared a total washout. But it didn’t rain. In fact, it was glorious. The streets were blocked off, and we had an old-fashioned festival with Celtic dancing from the Thistle Dancers, live bagpiping, and fun activities for kids.
The shop was open, and the Chesapeake Spinners brought their wheels and spun in the sunshine outside the shop. In the shop we had some regulars who came to hang out plus lots of folks who’d never been in before. It was great. Last year we didn’t get much traffic, so I’d sort of figured I’d work on my Lady Eleanor, but didn’t make a single stitch. Oh well, it was terrific to see everyone who came out. Tonight I knit.
