Best laid plans… I slept in a bit this morning, and that was great! There was a message from work, and though it wasn't essential that I drop by, it felt like the right thing to do. So I made a trip of it:

  • Credit union (deposit/cash)
  • Movie theater (pick up tickets for the Best Picture Festival!)
  • Home Depot (pick up a ship-to-store order, that Airbnb thing is slowly coming together)
  • Work (being a good employee, also delivering some of those BPF tickets)
  • Meijer (for groceries, it's been open for months & this was my first time there)

It's very cold, but the sun is out. As soon as I got home, I started a pot of Chili All Day! It's definitely a good day for that. I was supposed to pick up Kate at the airport at 5:30 (she's been in NYC since Tuesday) and thought that would be a nice welcome home supper, but she won't be arriving until 10:30 now, due to delays. (It could be a nice welcome home bedtime snack!) (And will taste even better tomorrow!) (OMG, I just remembered that I forgot to buy Fritos… hopefully, Rusty will get my text & avert tragedy by stopping for some.)


Here's a Friday Amaryllis update! There's definitely some growth in that front pot, the one in the rear is looking good & healthy but taking her sweet time.


I also ran down to photograph some yarn before it got too late. That update is coming… it sure takes a lot of time to do all the things. Anyway,  I really like these… a series of 5 or 6 that were largely inspired by a photo of some fruit, the solid sunny orange skeins are older but they all look pretty good together, non?

I need a nap!

  1. Meijer is one of the things I miss from MI almost more than life itself! So, this girl is doing the Meijer Dance of Joy for you!

  2. Chili without Fritos!? Hope Rusty comes through for you. And safe travels to Kate. Did she get caught in the LGA mess that seems to have finally lit a fire under people in DC?
    And best for last… you do have an eye (and hand) for color, Girl!

  3. NYC airports were a mess yesterday – trust Kate made it home (chili and fritos FTW!) … stalking Make.Do and loving those colors!

  4. Just as Mary, I am stalking the Make.Do site! Chili and Fritos! Perfection, really. You were able to do a whole big lot of things on your day off. You, FTW!

  5. Considering you slept in you certainly got a lot done. Sorry Kate got delayed-you’re right chili the next day is wonderful. What is the front left skein color-so I can order it.

  6. Wow – that’s a full day on a day off!! Hoping Kate got home with no further delays. I LOVE that sunny yellow/orange skein. I NEED that skein. I will be stalking with others…..
