Yarn & Super Bowl (what a great pair)
Pictures - These are pictures of the yarn I bought at that big sale in Watkins glen. They are all Schaefer Yarn. I told my husband "I have always wanted Schaefer Yarn but could never afford it before, so now is my chance." Which is kinda ironic because Schaefers live up around the corner from us! The top picture is a cotton yarn, the orig. price is almost $40. (I got it for 22.) The bottom 2 are a wool blend and they were both orig. in the twenty's. I am very excited! I love the colors I got. Now I really can't wait till I get my cast off, but it did cheer me up. I also got 3 sets of circular needles.
The Steelers play in the Superbowl this Sunday. I am very excited! I didn't put two and two together at the time but, my Author friend - Erin Grady lives in AZ! The Steelers are playing the AZ Cardinals! Good luck to Erin and her team. May the Steelers, I mean, the best team win!
A store called "Famous Brands" in Watkins does a special thing on Superbowl Sunday every year. It is tradition to meet our friends Donya and Danny to shop before the Superbowl. What they do is - you shop and pick out what you want to buy, you take it up to the cashier and she rings it up, then you get to spin this big wheel with all kinds of discounts on it. Whatever it lands on is your discount. Our friends got "free" one year! and I think they and also we got 50% on different years. Unfortunately it is more common to get 5 - 15% off. I'll let you know what we get this year.
Books - A Year by the Sea: Thoughts of an Unfinished Woman. I thought this was good, but not great. I wanted more about Cape Cod and less about her failing marriage. There were some good parts where she talked about the sea and islands, seals, clamming, fishing, and the weather. Then there were so many more parts about her husband, marriage, and separation. This was a memoir about a woman who goes to her family home on Cape Cod to "find herself" and decide if her marriage is worth saving. After all that talk, I couldn't really figure out what exactly made her get back together with him. I thought her life there alone was great! If it was me, I would have ditched the hubby and just lived there alone. LOL! I mean, If I had her husband not mine!
