Happy Stuff

It's been a long and exhausting two weeks at school, as my students write their provincial tests. One day this week, I'd had enough and needed to visit a few of my happy places to make everything OK again! So I took a trip to the library for some books from my book bucket list, and did some retail therapy at the local yarn store....

These are all vegan yarns (gotta love the warm weather yarns that come out!). I got 5 skeins of Butterfly Mercerized Cotton (brown), two skeins of Berroco Comfort DK (nylon, acrylic) in red, two skeins of Classic Elite Yarns Firefly (viscose and linen) in gray, two skeins of Rowan lenpur linen (green), and a skein of Kertzer On Your Toes Bamboo, a mix of bamboo viscose and nylon in purple (hello, socks!). I cannot disclose all of the projects I have in mind for some of these yarns, as they are part of my Christmas knit list. But the brown cotton is all mine and I hope to make a bolero with it.

Two of my animals getting along this morning...they look so guilty.

I am just curious to come to know what a omni husband is. Maybe I already have one but don't know it.

Omni is just a term that some vegans use, it means the person isn't a vegan or vegetarian (they're omnivores) :)
