I was surprised during my visit to Jo-Ann when I found a large variety of Sugar & Cream colors. My store usually has only a handful of colors, and usually the same old boring selection. But this time they had a slew of new colors called "Culinary Colors" I had never seen before. So of course I couldn't help myself and threw just a few balls into my shopping basket.

I don't know what happened here. I went to Jo-Ann to look at buttons for my February Lady Sweater and 20 balls of kitchen cotton followed me home! I did find some buttons although I'm not 100% sure I like them for the sweater. I'll show you the buttons in another post. At least I managed to stay on target. :-)
I've been on a salad kick lately, I just can't get enough of it. While foods I've liked in the past just don't do it for me now. So I've been eating mostly salads these days. Crumbling blue cheese into my salad is a must these days. I picked up a pound the other day and am being very good about using it sparingly. I could eat this stuff like candy but that wouldn't be a good thing.
I haven't been doing much knitting lately. Just chipping away at my MIL's scarf. I'm exhausted all the time and I feel like I need a nap all day long, but don't get to take a nap until sometime after dinner. Then I have to wake up to give Miss M her bath and wind down. After that all I'm good for is watching some TV. I just can't concentrate on knitting.
I've been making slow progress on The Fellowship of the Ring, the first part of The Lord of the Rings. This is my first time reading the book. I am nearly done, I've got about 1/8 left to go. It's interesting to see what is similar or different from the movie. I haven't yet decided if I want to jump right into book #2, or to take a break and read one of the many mystery novels I have queued up.
