Four Days Until Stitches
After ordering more butterscotch yarn from Herrschners, today I go into Jo-Ann's and there are three skeins in my dye lot! Now where were they hiding them when I was looking everywhere? I bought them anyway, just because I wanted to. The clerk was a bozo though. I was finished writing my check when he tells me he forgot to wring up the needles I spent lots of time picking out, and since I don't carry cash, I had the choice of doing without or tearing up my check. I went without. It didn't occur to me at the time, but now I wonder what the heck I was doing buying yarn only four days before Melissa and I go to Stitches. I am hoping that Auntie M can come down and go too, because I found both of my wheelie bags, and we could all pile them full of purchases. I wish Janvier could go too, but not everyone can get the day off.
I have a list of things I keep forgetting to do like send the girls their valentines, pack up and ship the box to Abby, return the video to the library, and take down the Christmas tree. It is almost Valentines Day, so time the tree came down.
In book news, I am listening to Seizure, by Robin Cook. I am liking this story because so far I have not found a single character who is likeable, so I do not care what happens to them. I can enjoy the science background while the unpleasant characters get what is coming to them. Besides, the story revolves around cloning and gene therapy, and I was a genetics major back in the day. Before I changed to consumer economics.
Also over the weekend I made a big pot of beef vegetable soup, using the Uncle Vinnie recipe, and I had better go heat it up for dinner.
