Knitting: Wandering the Moor shawl
Yarn: Berroco Ultra Alpaca Fine. Had to unwind the pull-skein I’d made of it and ball it up because it kept getting tangled.
eBay Purchase: I think I got a bigger kick knowing that it came from a small town practically at the northernmost tip of Scotland.
Movie: Pirates of the Caribbean – On Stranger Tides (3-D). I actually liked this more than #2 and #3 Pirates movies. My knitting companion was Wandering the Moor. Why is it I always take dark knitting projects to work on in a movie theater?
Internet Find: London Fruit & Herb Company Green Tea & Blackcurrant. Love this stuff! I first bought this tea in Canada and had been meting it out carefully over 4 years until I found it available at Mark T. Wendell Tea Company.
Eating: Gluten-free pão de queijo (pronounced something like “pow d’ kayju”) from the local Brazilian espresso/soccer-viewing joint. I’ve been gluten-free for about 3 months now and this cheesy tapioca bread has become my guilty pleasure, and it’s “guilty” because I’m also allergic to dairy, but no where near as much as I am to wheat. Recently discovered I’m also allergic to potatoes, corn and chocolate, but I ignore those allergies for obvious reasons. I’ll get around to trying to bake my own once I get over my funk.
Happiness: My new bright red Fermob (I think it’s pronounced sort of like, “fayr-moe”) French bistro table and chairs; even on a dark rainy day they bring me joy.
Smelling: Lilacs at the kitchen window.
Planning: A quick trip to Los Angeles for a cousin’s June wedding.
