First, don't go to the mall on Saturday. Everyone in the hemisphere goes to the mall on Saturday.
Second, take a list. I had a tiny list of the things I wanted to learn how to do on my phone. Even though a couple I couldn't do because my Windows phone won't load iPhone apps or I'd have to pay $10/month to do them, the list did help remind me what to ask about because my brain has turned from Velcro to Teflon over the years so if I don't snatch at thoughts and put them on paper as they whiz by they're lost forever.
Third, the young woman at the AT&T store showed me the Maps app that comes free with my phone so now I can find out how to go to DD & SIL1's house, or anyplace else, without using Robert the GPS. It'll even talk to me while I drive!
Fourth, I also learned how to Instagram. I learned that I can't use camera pix, only phone pix, and I learned that it's uber-public so no pix with persons' faces is my first Instagram rule. Now I can hashtag just like the big kids!
In knitting news (knitting knews? nitting news? either way is a temptation.) I got to the decreases on the Play Day hat last night but look how the variegated red stripe matched up with the solid red. It was a trick to keep the yarns separate but I can kind of see the difference in the colors in that picture. And it's pretty much too warm for the hat now anyway. See what the temp was outside at 9:32 this morning? 61.2 degrees, and only going up.
I knew it was going to be sunny and warm today so I thawed out the last slab of spareribs in the freezer yesterday and got them on the smoker this morning. This is my first time using the smoker, I hope I do it right, but I'm confident they'll taste great despite my inexperience.

Fleet Farm has a couple of fountains half-price in their ad this week (while supplies last!) and I read that the wrens will only nest near running water which explains why we didn't have any last season (didn't put out the fountain), so I'm on a mission to go get one. We want wren nests again. Plus it's time to check on my ribs. Tootles!
