Another coincidental thing happened to me this week. I went to the Crown Books Liquidation Center on my lunch hour one day, and I was looking at a nice copy of Jane Austen's Persuasion. I didn't buy it, but it reminded me to think of the story. Then, the very next morning I had some docs on my desk and the party of the first part was named 'Walter Elliott'.
Easter has snuck up on me. EG left a message on the phone to tell me that I am to bring a hot vegetable. He wants me to do something with cauliflower, so I guess I will make a cauliflower gratin, which is a fancy way of saying creamed cauliflower with cheese on the top. Easter arriving on tax weekend, how cruel is that? He is in the office now, but I do believe the worst is behind him. He says the last week was pretty stressful.
I was reading a new knitting blog, and the knitting guy made a comment about going to the Kinokuniya book store in San Jose to buy knitting mags, so I decided to give the place another try. The last time I was there was during the bust in Japan, so they had no knitting mags. The blog guy said he bought some there, and the entry was last fall, so I jumped into the car this morning and drove there. Yes indeedy, they had knitting mags. I got two ZaZa's and three other knitting mags, and in addition, I bought some truly fabulous erasers which look like ice cream cones and pastry, and some penguin paper holders, both of which are for Jellie's approaching birthday.
On the way home, I found the new location of the knitting machine store, and I got a few items, including a book that describes how to do neckline treatments. After this splurge, I was poor so had to come home.
The storm that is supposed to hit us this weekend is holding off, so I am trying to do the laundry while I can. Then I think I will do some more knitting because tomorrow will be taken up with Easter stuff. I am tired already.
