I've just spent three weeks being crazy busy. The Compadre just shakes his head and wonders if I'll ever learn. The answer is no. I have many, many interests and I just want to do it all! I'm behind in telling you all the things I've been doing. Sometimes when it gets like that I just start over and leave out stuff that I was going to post about. This time I'll try to hit some of the high points eventually. Maybe. Depends on what I get myself into and how much time I have - oh, well, you know....
Last week, Wednesday, Miss T and I got together for a lovely time at a coffee shop where we shared our knitting stories and got to see each other's projects in real life. You should see her lace! That's what happens when you focus on one thing - as opposed to me who tries to do it all! Ha! But I spent the weekend with tractors (I'll tell you about that later - it's a whole post by itself). Anyway, we then went out to eat at one of Miss T's favorite restaurants, The Royal Orchid. I don't have Thai food very often and so I was a little skeptical but the meal was superb. I had Pad Thai and I recommend it highly. See, occasionally I'm adventurous in my eating. We then went to World Market and I bought an electric hot pot (a Bodum Mini Ibis) to boil water for my multiple pots of tea that I drink. Miss T has had one for years and loves it and now so do I! I wonder if I save on energy by using it over boiling water on the stove. I like that it shuts off when it's done so I don't have to worry about forgetting it. I just wish it was a little bigger. When the Compadre and I both drink tea in the morning we go through a big pot and the Mini Ibis doesn't quite fill it. But it'll do and maybe someday I'll upgrade to the bigger Ibis.
After Miss T and I parted, I took my Mom shopping and I fell off the frugality wagon with a resounding crash! I don't buy clothes very often but when I find short, capris and pants that fit me and they are on sale I stock up. And ditto with shoes. I did very well on the shoes. I have foot problems and can't wear just any old shoe, no, only the expensive ones will do for me! One of the pairs that I bought was a pair of Birkenstock shoes (not sandals) that started out at $190 and I paid $47. Woo, hoo! The Compadre reads this so I won't tell you how many pairs of shoes I bought, but just call me Imelda. I'll crawl back onto the frugality wagon and we'll see how long it lasts this time. Oh, did I tell you about the sale at the quilt shop?
Yes, I do still knit and I promise I'll show you what I'm working on. Just not today. Oh, and you think a blog needs more pictures than one. Well, how about a tractor.
