Yummm! Bread!
Mood:  chatty
Now Playing: "Fantasy" by Aldo Nova
Topic: Daily musings

I'm a carb addict. I love my pasta, bread, sugar, fruit, ice cream, whatever. And was pleasantly surprised to see that a Panera Bread opened up in Hadley. I've been eagerly awaiting this, as my curiosity was peaked when I heard it was not only a bakery, but a cafe too. I *love* eating out!

So yesterday, I suggested to my Mom that we head over to see if Panera was open, and I was thrilled to see that it was. My lunch consisted of Asiago bread with roast beef and horseradish sauce, tomatoes, lettuce and red onions. And I couldn't resist a drink that had peaches and tangelos in it. Fabulous lunch! I'm hooked. So hooked that I had to go back today, and buy two other small loaves of bread (yesterday I purchased a killer sourdough loaf); Sesame Semolina and Kalamata Olive bread. And two orange scones, which I was able to try yesterday, and found it heavenly.

I've found a new place to indulge myself. Heaven!

Some of the things I see...
Mood:  bright
Now Playing: "Silly Love Songs" by Paul McCartney and Wings
Topic: Daily musings

while on my trips around Western MA for my job is the wildlife, especially in the hilltowns. Last Monday, while on my way up to Middlefield for a job, I saw four wild turkeys crossing the road in Huntington (pronouned Hun-ing-ton) in front of my car. I was able to pull up next to them, and get this photo of two of the turkeys.



And later, in Middlefield, a deer jumped across the road about 200 feet in front of my car.

Not a bad day for wildlife sightings.

And here is a picture of the sock in progress. I'm up WAY too early this morning, so I decided to work on the sock a bit before starting my work at the computer.



And here is a picture of Annie's babies, who are still living in my office. They are now 17 days old. Aren't they cute? :)

Rush, rush, rush
Mood:  bright
Now Playing: "I Know There's Somthing Going On" by Frida on Radio AOL
Topic: Daily musings
Today's errands include a trip over to Webs to buy Addi Turbo needles so that I can knit while waiting at the reviewing stand of tomorrow's parade (I have the job of greeting our special guests, which I do like doing. I'm one of the few committee members that actually gets to see the entire parade!). Then it's back home to wait for the rental company to drop off the canopy, then to the farmer's market for veggies if it hasn't closed, and back home to figure out decorations for the reviewing stand.

It won't be a relaxing weekend, but it will be fulfilling.

Have a wonderful July 4th everyone! :)

Happy Birthday to me!
Mood:  celebratory
Now Playing: "Rio" by Duran Duran on Awesome 80's Radio AOL
Topic: Daily musings
Yes, today I turn 37. I'm not even sure my husband has remembered that today is my birthday, but my Mom already wished me a happy one, and my parents will be down tonight to have dinner with us (Chinese; I'm not cooking outside in the rain!). So, to treat myself today, I went over to Barnes and Noble and picked up three books. The first book is about pasta sauces; most are tomato based, which I can't eat, but I found a few in there that sound delicious, and have potential. The next book is a Martha Stewart book on meals for the seasons. While most people despise Martha, I've come around to enjoying her magazine and show. I used to be one of those people that couldn't stand to watch her, but after seeing her magazine, and really liking the recipes, I've changed my tune.
The last book I purchased is a hardcover (something I *never* do, since I'm cheap, and like softcover books), but this is a treat for myself. It's called "The Shop on Blossom Street" and is about several women that frequent a knitting store. Some members on the NETA list have been raving about it, so I decided to buy it. I'll give a review when I'm finished.

Yesterday, another box of roving from Wooly Knob showed up in the mail. I'm in awe of the skill of Matt and Jamie. All four fleeces in the box are stunning, including Halcyone's, which is slightly darker than last year's fleece, with more black in it, but still amazingly beautiful

I'm bringing several of these new rovings up to the Grafton Fibers Spin-In on Saturday to sell. Wait till you see them! The rest will go up on the webpage after the spin-in, if there are any left.

Good day at the craft fair
Mood:  happy
Now Playing: "Rock Me Tonight" by Billy Squire
Topic: Daily musings
It was a lovely day at the craft fair. By 10:30, when the show is usually packed out, it had a modest crowd (and it wasn't even raining!), easy parking at my former kindergarten-2nd grade teacher's house (she hates thinking about that when ever I see her, ), and the wonderful company of my husband.

My big purchase for the day is the Edmond Johnson painting I was looking for. All of these are originals; no prints from Mr. Johnson. This painting finishes the trio of farm scenes we now have up on our wall in the living room.



My other purchase was 9 bars of soap from this farm Jenness Farm. I actually had the opportunity to try to soap out shortly after I came home. I went outside to feed and water the rabbits, and held one of the does, Mia. That was my first mistake. The second mistake was going over to Lucky's cage, and thinking he was just being affectionate, but instead, he was smelling Mia on me. After I put his food in the food dish, he kicks up his hind legs, and sprays me. This is not pleasant from a buck. So, in the house I go to take a shower (buck pee smells really bad), and unwrapped the coconut soap. It's wonderful! Now I smell like the beach. :)

There was one item that we didn't buy, but I might go back to pick up tomorrow. Dale saw a picture by a local photographer, Patrick Zephyr. Patrick is an amazing photographer, and captures nature in a serene sense. He also holds three weekend seminars each year, which we both want to attend. Anyway, Dale wanted this picture, but after buying the painting, and the soap, he decided against it. I might sneak over to the craft fair tomorrow, and purchase the picture as a Father's Day present for him.
