My Fave Five this week:
1. I found out I won a book at the TKCS award banquet! We left early because I had a very early flight from Portland the next morning, so I wasn't there to claim it. Dawn Seymour from FiberRhythm picked up my prize and mailed it to me. I received it Wednesday. The book I won is
I'm a novice at crocheting so I'm really excited about having this book to use to practice. AND! This is the book that I mentioned in my post on Monday that was authored by the teacher of two of the classes I took at TKCS, Edie Eckman. Yeah! Thanks, Dawn, for sending the book on to me!
2.Saturday Afternoon Tea. We invited our neighbors for tea on Saturday. We all had a great time and just enjoyed each others' company. I hope our teatimes become a regular event. I made Lemon Thyme Cookies from my own freshly dried lemon thyme. Oh My! Were those sugar and fat bombs delicious!
3.Ellen at Happy Wonderer and I are back walking our regular route. We walked Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Ellen is earning the title Mrs. Gumby for her flexibility in walking around my teaching/tutoring schedule. We've seen these three guys several times, grazing on the hillside by the nature trail.
4. Knitting with K. Tuesday evening I met up with a knitting buddy and spent a relaxing two hours talking knitting, patterns, fiber and family. We have both read the same financial planning book--"Your Money Or Your Life" by Joe Dominguez--and had a great discussion about the concept of 'enough'. On the knitting front, I was swatching for a navy vest I want to knit and she was working on a Weasley Sweater from Enchanted Knits, the same pattern I used for a sweater I made The New Boy.
5. Cute new clothes. The New Boy, Kiti and I went shopping at a discount store and we all found some great bargains. The New Boy looks so cute in his next-size-up onesies, Kiti is tres chic in brown slacks and sweater, and I got a compliment from a tutoring student when I wore my new purple top. This last fave is not a huge one in the course of the universe and its happenings, but it made us smile.
