T Minus Three Days

These are so cute. (I saved this link and now I don't know what it is until I publish!)

Steve and I watched another movie last night. Well, I watched and he read and occasionally looked at the screen. It was The Namesake, from the novel by Jhumpa Lahiri. I love that author and although it's been a year or so since I read the book, I thought the movie was a pretty good adaptation, although movies are never as good as a book, are they?

I made fish tacos last night; I can't imagine why we don't eat those every night, they are so delicious. Even made a version of the homemade coleslaw in this month's Everyday Foods, with one or two changes. Yummy.

Oh and I decided that I actually didn't have enough knitting projects going after all, and cast on for a purple scarf (that I don't really need right now) using the Manos silky and Kidsilk Haze I bought with M1 on my last trip to NYC and Purl.

Speaking of Purl, a friend of mine and I are flying up to NYC for one day during the week of spring break. We're meeting up with M for lunch and shopping and I'm hoping Purl will have moved by then so I can see their new digs. Either way, it should be fun. I've always wanted to do that, fly somewhere for one day, and with flights so cheap, it's doable. I get to see my daughter, hang out with a friend, and don't have to drag luggage or pay for a hotel or extra meals. Cool huh?

Spring break in three more days!!


  1. Will that make you a member of the jet-set? I've always wanted to know someone who was.

  2. You do get around. No wonder you've been anxious for spring break to get here. I would too with plans like those! Enjoy!!
