An excellent day (and it ain't over yet) - The Bibliophile
Too busy reading most likely ...
An excellent day (and it ain't over yet)
A fun visit to the hairdresser (carrying treats from one of the Polish groceries ... never hurts to give chocolate to people who use very sharp blades around one's head); with today's cut my hair is all natural colour again except for a last bit of faded red dyed ends to the right of my nape ... obviously my hair grows a little slower in that spot (interesting that that's also the only place my hair ever tangles). So now I'm a mix of grey, silver, white and still some natural red here and there. I'm quite pleased. Then caught the train over from the northeast to the northwest quadrant to visit the comic shop (new volumes of Saga, Fairest, and Lazarus!!!), to the grocery beside the comic shop to pick up a few things they carry that my local Co-op doesn't, then onto the train again headed for home, stopping off at the Polish grocery ... which is on the way from the station ... again (rum cappuchino mix and Polish ham and Canadian bacon for me this time) and London Drugs right beside it for milk and gelato. And now home and have devoured half of the new Saga book along with a very very late lunch of a grilled Polish ham and cheese sandwich (when you can't remember when you last made a grilled cheese sandwich then it's been far too long)

Also taking advantage of the sun being out to take knitting progress photos. Optical Delusion: Conflagration continues to be seriously addictive (it's the wanting to do just one more flame to see how the colours happen in that one, and then just one more, and one more ...)

Shetland Ruffles has been traveling to work with me and gaining rows during coffee breaks ... it was only at the middle bright magenta section when I pulled it out of the neglected pile not too long ago.

And now, back to Saga (and then Lazarus and then Fairest)

Those are all so gorgeous! And I'm curious to see your hair now.
I miss Polish grocery stores, there aren't many around here, but the town my parents live in, in southern Sweden has many. I personally love their sausages, and I always buy their dried mushrooms, to make soup out of.

If you need more mushroom bouillon (or any other non-perishables) mailed down to you, you have only to let me know. :-) It almost feels selfish that I live between two Polish groceries when other people have none ...

I feel you've given me so much already, but I admit, I was pondering asking my mom to send me some mushroom bouillon from Sweden. Maybe there is something I could send you in exchange...

Nothing is too much for somebody who was once my personal lingerie buyer/smuggler. ***GRIN*** (and I'd have you doing that again in a second but Hanes no longer sells 'em). To me, because I'm too far away to give a real shoulder to lean on or lunch or whatever, these things are proxy hugs and distractions from reality (I know you've done this kind of thing for others and will pay it on to someone else in the future)

Trying to recall if there's currently anything down there that I can't get up here (last thing was the dark chocolate M&Ms but they eventually got licensed for Canada so are now available everywhere)

Next time I get things from Sweden, I'll fix you up with some cookies and knorr products (since I know you like those)

And when we meet for real, I'll make you mushroom soup. I'm genuinely famous for it, and the shroom bouillon is a key ingredient.

Cookies and Knorr always much appreciated.

The soup ... a sweet offer but ... er. Sorry to have to tell you this but all mushroom dishes, soups included, smell and taste very strongly of decay to me and I can barely handle being in the same room with them let alone eat them (ditto for most anything with fish/seafood ... it's some sort of short-circuit in my sensory system)

If we'd been meant to photograph our own hair we would have evolved longer arms ;p

Somewhat windblown after being out and about, but mostly accurate
