The new lens works in low light!
With modest intentions, I set out to buy a skein of yarn. Kevin and I tore parts of the house apart on Christmas Eve searching for my skein of baby blue yarn, when, oh yeeeaaahhh, I realized that I'd never purchased the yarn because the store was out of stock. I returned today to find the yarn in stock and on sale and while there, I decided to buy some of the wildly marked down fabric to help further my goal of cloth napkining the world. I asked for a yarn and a half of a blue twill and the cutting guy rolled out the bolt finding exactly a yard and a half left. I handed a Christmas Jacquard over and asked for two yards. Sure enough, only two yards were left. The guy looked up and asked "How are you doing that?!"
After dropping my purchases in the car, I grabbed a book and walked to Starbucks where I ordered a drink and found the cozy, oversized chairs free. I sat there for an hour, unable to remember the last time I did that, even for a few minutes. Before Clover was born? But then I wouldn't have needed to escape the house.
Whole Foods had internally advertised a Crab Fest! this Friday, so I stopped by, preparing to be disappointed, but was surprised to find dungeness crab for $3.99 a pound, cracked and cleaned. I grabbed a baguette too, avoiding the ones being smelled by a woman trying to find the right brand, I presume. She had her 11 year old son handing her baguettes that she would put to her nose and inhale deeply, then say "No, not this one." I didn't ask.
The cherry on top of my outing came when I got back in the car and found that all of my radio station presets were playing songs I really liked and it continued the entire way home. I returned to a clean house and kids on their way out to see a Lego exhibit with their dad.
Today is like Christmas all over again. I should go buy a lottery ticket.
