busy, busy, busy

Here we are in the middle of the weekend and I finally have some time to blog...

Fox came home from a trip to europe on wednesday with a full supply of Ritter Sports in all my favorite flavors.

The very next day, our third and only running volvo broke down! You know you are in a tight spot when 3 out of 3 of your volvos are off the road. But, good news, it wasn't terminal and volvo #3 is back in action today. What to do about the other two is still undecided.

I was fortunate enough to find myself on Newbury Street in Boston on friday with two hours to kill. I went into a cute yarn shop that I had seen before but was hesitant to go into. We all know that major 'tude one can encounter from those who run these little shops but I was very pleasantly suprised! The owner was both friendly and helpful. I bought three skeins of Noro even though I haven't finished a project all winter. I just couldn't resist the wonderful color combos:

And, finally, the mushrooms just keep coming! It is incredible. Fox made a great sauce with them the other night and they are really quite tasty. I don't know, they seem to taste really mushroomy but maybe I'm just so excited about the whole thing.

Here they are on wednesday:

and then today:
