NEW FOR ME
At last week’s grocery store outing, on a whim I decided to try out a precooked smoked brisket, one of those that just has to be heated, and I’m here to tell you, it. was. awesome. Yeah, this is definitely on the Coleman Kitchen Hit Parade. I’ve been making sandwiches for work all week and it’s so good! I wish I’d tried it sooner, and it doesn’t get much easier than this.
The fam descended upon Stuttgart on Saturday and the Papoose was so proud to show off her new big girl bed and her newfound (sometimes) potty skills. I especially like that she can inspect her toes and potty at the same time. A born multitasker just like her bebe.
More toe action.
Babydiva has just discovered her feet and toes.
ON THE NEEDLES
I’m still plugging along on the Crazy Monkeys, with one sock complete and about 1/3 of the way finished on its mate. I caved and went to my lys and splurged on some new yarn, enough for my newest, soon to be started project, Bauble, a First Fall Surprise from Knitty. Two skeins gray and totally out of character for me, two skeins of an orangy, makes you think of Thanksgiving, brown and gold mix. Now, I don’t like orange, I don’t wear orange, I look like I have jaundice when I wear orange, but all the same, it called to me and I marched up to the counter with two skeins of it, deciding to think out of the box a little when it comes to color. I’ll get pictures tonight.
Here are the photos I promised –

BY THE BOOK
Still slogging through Steve Jobs, finishing it come hell or high water. It’s been a very long listen, I think I’m just ready for something new. Before I started the Jobs book, I reread King’s Dark Tower series and like always, I’m mesmerized by the story. Maybe I’m just having a problem switching from fiction to nonfiction.
