I have been doing some reading, just fiction, but I enjoy it.
If you like mysteries I recommend this series by Gyles Brandreth.
Be smarter than I was though and read the series in order. Duh.
On the other hand, I barely made it through this book.
Actually I didn't even make it through the entire book. I gave up caring about the story about halfway into it. If you're a Catholic you might find it interesting. I did not.
I bought this; intending to steam it into my morning lattes.
Not my best plan. You know how it's really good though? On ice, with Kahlua. Yummy.
I've made these twice and highly recommend them. Soooo good.
You'll need a decent sized food processor to make a batch, or you could halve it.
We're still working with Scarface, trying to acclimate him to our three cats. Chelsea has become used to him being around. She's also too deaf to notice when he growls at her. A good thing, I guess.
Felix, our smallest cat is also the bravest so far.
Felix has been unwilling to give up his sleeping spots in the house. He waltzes in the front door as if he owns the place. Scarface still occasionally chases him but no one gets hurt.
Frankie on the other hand, is quite the "scaredy cat".
He is super vigilant around the house now. But he's improving.
Jessie, cat number three, still requires carrying to enter the house. But we're all working hard at it. Scarface really hates being sprayed with the water bottle we keep handy.
And since it is a day for being thankful I want to mention that years ago my friend Carol gave me these lovely socks she hand knit for me.
Aren't they beautiful? And I'm still wearing them occasionally.
She gave them to me before she taught me how to knit my own socks. And until I finished my first pair I didn't appreciate nearly enough what a gift hand knit socks really are. They're wonderful. (They are also damn time consuming and require a ton of patience.)
Since then I've knit many a pair; mostly for myself, and a very few for family members.
Right now I'm working on another pair;
I still use the socks Carol made for me as a length and height measurement, they're so perfect.
Here's hoping you find something to be thankful for today, even if it's a small thing. And if anyone ever gifts you with hand knit socks, be grateful, very grateful.
