I tried to post this yesterday, but my internet connection was acting up. I watched the US-Canada gold medal men’s hockey game. Wow — what a terrific game! And the US gave it a good try by tying it and sending the game to overtime. I know they wanted gold, but they won silver — and gave it their best.
I worked on this while watching the game.
Charlotte Rose was born on Friday — three weeks early! So I must get in gear and get her cardigan finished. And Saturday I went to the fabric store and got the cutest buttons! The sweater takes three buttons and I could not decide between the two. So, should I use all three flower buttons, all three little lamb buttons, two lamb and one flower, or one lamb and two flower?
Other knitting in the works — a Stripes discloth and the hiking sock.
And I made a yummy salad yesterday. A lentil salad with chopped cucumber, diced red bell pepper, sliced green and red grapes, coarsely chopped almonds, chopped green onions, and a dressing of lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper.
I had some for lunch yesterday with a baked sweet potato. And I liked it so much that I am having the same lunch today.
The last batch of books I had I just could not seem to get into reading. I am currently reading a book called Figures in Silk by Vanora Bennett. The book is about two sisters in 1400s England — one who has an affair with the king and the other who learns the silk business. And I picked up Elizabeth Kostova’s new book, The Swan Thieves, at the library to read when I finish Figures in Silk. One of my friends reads some of the good young adult series books and she recommended two for me — The Hunger Games and The Lightning Thief. I picked up the first Hunger Games book also. So I have plenty to keep me busy.
