Fridays Feast 8/24/07

It's Fridays Feast time. Sheesh! Where did the week go? Before we eat, though, I thought I'd give a brief report of yesterdays haul. I went into Coeur d'Alene for the day because the new tires I ordered for my car were in. I no longer have bald tires. I'm ready for ice and snow now--or maybe I should say, my CAR is ready. Not me. I want 3 or 4 more months of summer.

I also visited Harmony Yarns. I don't remember if I've mentioned this or not, but I ordered some Tatemy Tweed DK in the Oatmeal color. This is a cotton/acrylic blend that is very nice. I am going to knit a lace swimsuit cover up for the cruise. I'll get into more detail on that at a later date. While there, I also picked up 3 skeins of Cascade 220, cos I suddenly remembered I'd promised 2 months ago to make my Uncle Jimmy a pair of felt knit slippers (oops!), and I fell in love with a sock yarn-so I bought it. I need more sock yarn like I need a hole in my head. It's shades of the most gorgeous blue, and the softest 100% superwash merino. I'll take pics and whatnot for a later post.

I also popped into Hastings to use the gift certificate I won at sweet hubby's company bar-b-que. (Playing bingo) I got James Pattersons new book The 6th Target, and Yarn Harlot: The Secret Life of a Knitter by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee. I started reading the second one last night and had a hard time putting it down. I'm halfway through already. A very funny read-especially if you're a knitter. It's also reassuring that I'm not the only one who gets that obsessive about knitting.

Fridays Feast. Here it is, piping hot.

Say there’s a book written about your life. Who would you want to narrate the audio version?
Lauren Bacall. I just love her voice.


Take the letters from your favorite kind of nut and write a sentence. (Example: Perhaps every avenue needs understanding today.)
Cathy always sings harmony each Wednesday.


If you could go back in time and spend one week in another decade, which decade would you choose?
The 50's? I don't know.

Main Course

Name a song that brings back memories for you.
"Could I Have This Dance" by Anne Murray. I fell in love with sweet hubby while we were dancing to this song.


Do you prefer to wash your hands in cold water or warm water?
Warm water. The soap works better in warm, and the hands get cleaner. (It's all about getting rid of the germs, right?)

72 hours with no moose damage or sightings. Could they have headed south now--she says hopefully?

Have a good day.
