I had completely forgotten that yesterday was Fat Tuesday/Mardi Gras, but Fletch had not forgotten. I wish I had remembered because I would have made red beans for dinner…but we had salmon instead. We still had our masks though!
LOL And my red face…after my doctor’s appointment yesterday I have some new prescriptions to use but still no make up until it clears up. Unfortunately it’s a type of dermatitis that can come and go at a whim. For some it is triggered by hot and humid weather; for me it may be the dry cold weather that brings it on. Stress is another trigger for a lot of people. Oh well, things could be so much worse and I’m trying to consider myself lucky.
I managed to knit another tooth on my Hitchhiker last night – I’m now up to 27 teeth and I have 56 or 57 grams left in my 100 gram skein. The pattern calls for 41 or 42 teeth, so I’m hoping I can get there. There are now 114 stitches on the needles. I’ll probably take the time to do a little math and see where I might end up.
On the reading front, my slump may have been cured. I’m about a third of the way through The Library Book and really enjoying it. I keep wanting to write down lines or quotes One of my favorites:
“In Senegal, the polite expression for saying someone died is to say his or her library has burned. When I first heard the phrase, I didn’t understand it, but over time I came to realize it was perfect. Our minds and souls contain volumes inscribed by our experiences and emotions; each individual’s consciousness is a collection of memories we’ve cataloged and stored inside us, a private library of a life lived.”
Head on over to Kat’s to see what others are up to reading-wise and knitting-wise.
