More things to do and see in Miami...

You can visit Books and Books, which just happens to be down the street from the Knitting Garden. How cool is THAT?


And have a cup of Cafe con Leche while you work a few rounds of a pattern you have been itching to start, (in this instance it is the beginnings of an adorable doll by Wendy Phillips of Dollytime and Flutterby Patch. The pattern is called "Posy").
While looking out the window at the gorgeous courtyard...
Later on you can go to Shorty's for some good ol' BBQ. I have spoken before on this issue of BBQ and personal preferences so I won't bore you by recounting that. Suffice it to say that tastes in BBQ differ greatly from region to region and family to family & can often be the cause of passionate family feuds. I know what I like.

Still this BBQ has merit, even if the sauce is sweet, which is not generally how I like it. In fact, I really, REALLY liked it. Plus the atmosphere was laidback country and the staff were FANTASTIC!!As with most BBQ establishments that I have gone to, they give you WAY too much food so naturally I ate WAY too much, ha,ha. I am putting Shorty's on my list of favs and will definitely be back.
Looks good, huh? My mouth is watering as I type this. But if I WERE to eat this meal right now then a food induced power nap would be sure to follow and I have a lot to do.
And then, if you dare to don a swim suit after a meal like that, you can go to the beach.

    Don't even get me started on BBQ...I am a sweet girl all the way...and I could almost taste that yummy BBQ!

    Love the photo of your knitting with the view of the bookstore....

    I think we need to see photos of that yarn shop, too. :)

    Wishing you a wonderful day.
