Two days ago, Tuesday that it is, I went to "Back-to-School" Night at Drama Queen's school. Afterward, I had the rare and wonderful opportunity to get some time to myself. I went to Barnes & Noble, one of my very favorite places. I got some new preschool workbooks for Princess, which she needed. I then went to browse the craft section. It is always interesting to me to see what books have come out recently from designers that I know of. I was AWED by Kristin Omdahl's new book Croceht So Fine. Some of the projects were remarkable. Then, I happened to spot this book:
Yesterday I loaded up my 3 youngest and went grocery shopping, the most dreaded chore of my week. We bought some fresh pineapple. It was on sale. I LOVE fresh pineapple, but I don't buy it very often. It is one of those things that I always get when it is available at social events and buffets. It is one of those great summer fruits I enjoy. I also love cherries and cantaloupe. Does anyone have any great summer fruit recipes that I should try out before the summer fruits are gone for the season? I chopped ours up today and had some for lunch. Yummy! Lady Hops-a-lot had some too, but not much. The other girls weren't very impressed by the sight of it. I thought it was wonderful!
Well, Lady Hops-a-lot, and Princess are chasing each other, and Baby is just about to get up from a nap. Drama Queen's bus will be here soon. So, I might get in a few more rounds, but then it's off to my Mommy duties.
Happy stitching all!
