Rain yesterday and a chance for more thunderstorms today. Everything is starting to green up with the rain we’ve had lately. Speaking of green,
I treated myself to this sweet little jade ring this week.
I made some pasta last night — multigrain rotini — and topped it with basil pesto and a couple of spoonfuls of fire-roasted tomatoes. Very good.
I heard that the new LYS got in a shipment of Noro Kureyon sock yarn, so I think I will head over there this evening after praise team practice and check it out.
The fashionista turns 20 on Sunday. I got a birthday box mailed off to her yesterday. It should arrive Friday or Saturday. This will be the first year we have not celebrated her birthday together. It feels odd — but I will get the hang of this letting go eventually!
Actually, there are many things I have not missed about her leaving the nest. I have been sleeping better due to not worrying about her being out late. There are always clean towels in the linen cabinet. I can always find a clean glass or coffee mug in the kitchen cabinet. I can use the computer whenever I want. I spend less when I go shopping.
Jessica over at Zarzuela Knits is having a button contest for this year’s Summer of Socks. I sent in an entry. You have until tomorrow at 5 p.m. to create a button and enter it. Give it a try!
