All good things are possible

I'm in a good mood right now :) The exterminator came, our kitchen is clean (though we still have to move everything back into the kitchen - I've made a dent, but there are still many trash bags filled with cookware, plates and spices in our living room). I'm reading The Blue Bistro by Elin Hilderbrand, which I love...I read Barefoot by her before, thought it was OK, and couldn't get into The Island. This one is about the restaurant business and I'm eating up the descriptions. Hand-cut potato chips with creme fraiche and caviar...yum! (Well, except for the caviar.) And banana French toast with chocolate syrup...

I also thought you should all know that I haven't bought yarn since late August, and can't remember the last time I bought clothes. The book fast didn't last, of course...but I *am* using the library more.

Oh, I'm still knitting...just not buying new yarn :) I have a stash of yarn I'm working my way through.

I think I'm picking up your yarn slack. I bought a bunch online about a month ago to make a big cardigan with, and I have yet to start. Then I bought a couple more skeins while on my trip last week. At least I'm using that up currently.

Well, I'm buying again myself...2 skeins today for mittens. Well worth it, though. The pattern is quite groovy.
