I got a text from someone I know that said she is going to have a market in May. She asked me if I wanted to participate. And I happen to have some yarn that I bought years ago to make a blanket. It's cotton and it's ocean/nautical colors. And since the purchase of that yarn years ago, I no longer make blankets out of cotton.
So the other day I got that yarn out, and started on a bag.
I started it over a few times, trying to decide how to go with it. I have plan A, B, and C on it in this picture below.
B won(hopefully I'll get it used up before the new yarn we all ordered comes in. I saw this quote tonight somewhere and I like it. " I have a yarn stash and I apologize to no one for having it! It brings me joy!)
And I have LOVED this book. Little Beach Street Bakery by Jenny Colgan. It's the first time in a long time that I have read a book and will be sad when it's over! I love the characters in this book. It's about a young lady who has a business with her boyfriend and it goes belly-up. Her boyfriend breaks up with her and she has to start her life over, from nothing. She ends up moving to an island town, in a run down flat, above a decrepit bakery. I love islands, harbors, baking, and there is even a beekeeper in this book! However, do not pay attention to the beekeeping terms the author uses....for example you do not "card the combs" to get the honey out of the hive. And really, I can't imagine the main character in the book doing everything she does and still having time to sleep, let alone have a life. HOWEVER! Get past that stuff...it's a novel...it's fiction...just get to know the characters and enjoy! I am!
What could be better...
a new beachy color coffee cup
beach bags in ocean/nautical colors
an island, a harbor, baking, beekeeping = A Good Book
Oh, and bonus! The book has recipes in it!
And it's hump day!
