Random Ramblings...

We are getting a bit of rain - hope it cools it down out there! The last few days have been sweltering.  Just hope it doesn't storm....

I can read while the tv is on, but not when music is playing.  My husband can read with music playing, but not with the tv on....

One of the books I'm enjoying is "Delicious" - a fiction book by Ruth Reichl. I tried to read it when it first came out, but it did not "take". But this time around - it is a winner for me!

I love to listen to the different sounds the birds make... To me, a blue jay sounds like it is saying - beep beep! beep beep!.....  there is a bird (not sure which one - could be a cardinal) that always sounds like it is saying teacher teacher - or maybe t-shirt t-shirt - LOL!  And another bird (not sure which one it is) that sounds like it is saying cheeseburger cheeseburger!

Got an email yesterday saying that my favorite yarn shop - the one I've been going to for probably over 8 years or more - the one that is like a home to me...is closing.  I literally sat here in front of my computer and cried so hard. The owner is retiring. Happy news for her - but really sad news for tons of us customers...
I went there today to get some yarn - and I did grab some stuff, but my heart wasn't in it. The sale starts next week and will go until she closes at the end of August. I really do not think I will go back. I have 5 other yarn shops within 30 minutes to an hour away...  and I will go and check them out. But I have a feeling I will not go yarn shopping very often anymore. May do a lot of it online.    But you never know - I'm trying to look on this as a silver lining - maybe something happy will come out of it somewhere down the road....

Isn't it interesting how the closing of our favorite store or restaurant can really set us back!! I am sure something good will come from it!
