Laurie, I'm so happy to hear your great news! Yay! And Cat, I'm glad you're feeling better about the procedure. Take good care, both of you.

oh, Laurie, some allergies aren't that bad if the jackpot would have been bad biopsy news ;o)
I'm glad you had the right ticket at the lottery ;o)

Just got back from getting the vehicle washed in one of those touchless washes. It was next to a BK, so took care of lunch while sitting there.

The shoveling is done for the last storm.

I brought up our Cuisinart coffee maker. We got a pound of Starbucks coffee and anther of some South American coffee beans so I thought I'd regular brew them. The Starbucks is a dark roast called Verona. I didn't make the first pot strong enough but it has a good flavor.

I wasn't very fond of the Verona blend. Once I got it strong enough, the coffee left a rather unpleasant slick on the tongue. Could be just the batch I had though. I am pleasantly surprised by the Blonde Roast at SB.

I'm binging...on knitting slippers. Right now I'm satisfying my urge to knit by binging on several pairs of these: How to Knit Slippers - Easy Knit Slippers

Slippers are a perfect way to use up a bunch of odds and ends of yarn (in the "fiber world," she who dies with the most yarn, wins. I am definitely in contention for that
"honor.") Any way, I like to keep slippers of various sizes in a basket at the back door so folks can slip them on in the winter when they come to visit. This all started when I brought back my mom's knitting stash and found a pattern for slippers she used to make on an index card (you all know that pattern--the one your grandma/aunt knit you for Christmas with the pom-pom on it and the "hole" in the middle of the toe where the yarn was drawn tight to form the slipper). I have made several pairs of those in different sizes (not everyone wears the same size I do) (some pairs have gone home with visitors--oh, my grandma used to make these, can I keep them?). I have a pattern for "pigheaded" ones, I think I'll work up some of those next...
