My reading onslaught continues. It would seem Sis thinks Maggie Sefton‘s the way to go next. I know I enjoy Laura Childs and her characters, so it will be great to read the first of that series, since I’ve already read the second.
You would think this would have been the book Sis went for, eh? It’s available at Dog House Yarns & More. I can’t wait to sit down and really read through it; it has recipes for humans and then in the last section, it has pet treat recipes.
… and MORE. There are at least two cookbooks in the store, a great line of jewelry, roving, etc.
But it is a yarn store, so aside from my gifts and goodies, the YARN did call out to me. I think I touched just about every yarn in there. That’s the problem with being locked in a yarn store when it’s closed. I can’t just sit there… I have to get to know it all!
In the end, I couldn’t get past the Hazel Knits colors. I wanted them all, but this Aurora Borealis really spoke to me with its soft green and vivid blue. I’m pretty sure it is destined to be a sweet little shawlette, but who knows!?
Why yes, you do see a wee paw up there in the corner. There’s no cashmere in the base, so I guess she was just trying to get in the picture…
So, that’s how I spent my Sunday. We also lunched at Lucio’s, and aside from a strange crostini appetizer that was really a salad with four slices of toasted bread and some roasted red peppers on top, the meal was outstanding. I’d definitely get the eggplant parmesan sandwich again, and the tiramisu is some of the best I’ve eaten. Please don’t confuse this spot on Main Street in an old home with Lugi’s, in a strip mall! (I haven’t eaten at Lugi’s, but the names and locations are similar enough…) Thanks Rosanne!!!
