Not! My visit with Milisandre went well, burned the hell out of my face and neck, but nothing was sliced off so I don't have to see her for 6 months, yeah!
Lots of running around yesterday, pool supplies needed, propane for the barbecue, pick-up contact lenses, and get fresh veggies.
My yarn came in from Amazon and I'm going to make a small version of the large Granny Square throw. It will be done in white, multi-colored grey and grey. Hope to start today.
Just finished a book I need to talk about, The Big Rock Candy Mountain by Wallace Stegner. He is probably my favorite author, he writes about the American West in the early 1900's and the families that inhabited it. Angle of Repose is my favorite book by him and he won the Pulitzer Prize for it. He probably should have won for this one too.
It's the story of Bo Mason. a man never satisfied, always looking for the next big thing as he moves his family through the American Northwest and Saskatchewan, Canada. His wife Elsa despises most of what he does, but loves him and after leaving him once knows she has to be with him. It's also the story of his relationship with his 2 sons Chet and Bruce, a tortured relationship that in ways resembled his own with his father. This is a fictionalized autobiography and Bruce is very obviously Stegner, the moves, the family dynamics, etc. I cannot recommend this book enough, it was wonderful.
