DH was down with a cold yesterday that really made him miserable. He almost never complains or lets anything slow him down, so I know that he must really be feeling bad if he says anything. As a result, we stayed in and quiet all day with cornbread and a big pot of homemade cowboy stew.
I listened to the end of one audiobook and all of another. The first book was not worth mentioning, but the second one was fun. It’s a mystery that is more of the cozy type, and it appears to be the first of a series. The setting is in a fictional coastal town in the San Francisco area of California. The protagonist is a daughter of one of the founding families of the area which has fallen on hard times. Ignoring her socialite background, she has found a fulfilling career as a zookeeper, but when a member of the most prominent family in town is found mauled to a bloody pulp in the enclosure of the Giant Anteater, she has a crime to solve. The man had been shot, but, nevertheless, the crime threatens her charge, and subsequent developments threaten her own life as well. This book is a fun listen. I look forward to the next book in the series. I downloaded this one from the Free Library of Philadelphia. I must admit that I found the title irresistible. I am ready for number two.
I did knit yesterday. I completed a few more inches of the Three Way Wrap that I started a few weeks ago. I also finished a set of dish cloths for my etsy shop. I am basically trying to complete one item a week for a little while until I get enough inventory to make it worthwhile for people to even look at the shop.
Today, I’m going to do my best to get a few more inches knitted on the Three Way Wrap after I run some errands in town. It looks like a lovely winter day outside, the kind that we often have at this time of year.
