A new year, a new yarn! A while ago i was ranting about a new Japanese crochet book. Well, i did end up ordering it and absolutely fell head-over-heels in love with this blanket. Love, love,love the colors!!! i wanted to keep this one really soft and fluffy so i chose Caron yarn. i would like to have more choices, but where i live you have to drive at least 50 miles one way to the yarn shop. so, i chose what was in town. which is fine, i really prefer to buy local when i can. it's just that sometimes you are quite limited.

Usually for Valentines Day i decorate my hutch in reds. But this year i thought to go softer. Pink i decided, yes, pink. I commenced to scour the house for anything pink. I searched high and low, inside cupboards and out, up high and down low. Dear friends, i am at quite a loss for pink. I did find the box of dishes i had purchased at an auction last summer. They are quite beautiful, and all the pieces are there down to the gravy boat and serving bowls. Not bad for $17.

This morning i thought about going to our Farm Show here in town. I thought about wandering thru the neat rows of booths visiting with the people i know behind the tables. Then my mind wondered to lunch....they always have the best food there. You know the kind, wonderful home-made sandwiches and salads. Usually pies. Ice Cream. SNAP. Back to reality. Yes, i will still go to the Farm Show this afternoon, after all, when something different is going on in a small town, one must simply take advantage. But, no, i will not eat lunch there. Instead i made egg salad. Now, i can just here some of you...EGG SALAD you say? Yes, egg salad. I like egg salad. In fact, there are very few things i do not like. I eat sauerkraut, smoked salmon, even homemade eggnog. Raw eggs don't faze me (i know i heard you gasp, but i haven't died yet). In fact, i can only think of two things right off-hand that i dislike. are you ready? drum roll: Celery and Caviar. So, what do you dislike? please let me know!
For now, i'm going to hop on over to the Farm show. After all, i have some quarters in my pocket and i believe there may be some ice cream calling my name.....
