blanket for baby Sawyer-Sugiyama

I knit a baby blanket for my friend Tamzin (who is 39 weeks 7 days pregnant and ready to not be) in a simple basketweave pattern with a seed stitch border, begun on 04/09/2010 using Caron Rhapsody in colorway Summer Rose on size 8 needles and finished on 05/24/2010.

Silly me, I bound off a full skein short. Of course it doesn't bother Dolly any, and I don't think it will bother Baby Sawyer-Sugiyama any, either. I meant for it to be a smaller, lovey kind of blanket.

I met Tamzin through my book club, which has been meeting monthly for 10 years now. (I took a hiatus of several years and just recently returned.) When a member has a baby, we regale her with a baby book shower. I gave Tamzin a copy of Margaret Wise Brown's The Important Book and included a special page in the back.

First we ate at Chaffin's Diner. They seated us in the less-dinery back room, which ended up being a good thing because we sat directly beneath a fan and didn't notice so much the heat. E drank decaff coffee with cream. I didn't notice sugar. Decaff, like his Uncle D. Coffee, like his Mimi.

We hit Shop for a Cause first, where the boys found nothing and subsequently sulked.

Next we pulled into the Humane Society Thrift Store, which I haven't visited in a long time. Historically I haven't found anything there.

Today we hit the treasure jackpot.

A $2 Ziploc bag containing the comprehensive plastic presidential contingent from Washington through Eisenhower.

Of course E had them ordered in a matter of moments.

Finally we escaped the store with a trove of treasures (more than I've found in one place in …

Sometimes I dream of operating a food truck specializing in gourmet wok-popped popcorn.

wotd: temporize

temporize \TEM-puh-ryz\, intransitive verb:

It's easy to tell yourself that you'll write a daily blog entry using the word of the day from dictionary(dot)com as a prompt, and equally easy to temporize your daily entry by waffling over what to write about, or evading your obligation by procrastination. There. Bedtime.
