Did you ever watch Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood? I loved that show. Do you remember Mr. McFeely -- the speedy delivery guy? Well I got a couple of great deliveries this week (besides the grandma in the making news from Holly).
First up, my bi-weekly Door to Door Organics box arrived on Tuesday afternoon:
So far, I've polished off the spinach, beets, several bananas and one of the mini peppers. I ended up with three mangoes -- what to do??? -- and I'm not sure what to do with the Kabocha squash -- ideas, anyone? The grapefruit smells divine and I'm running out to the market tomorrow for some fresh mozzarella and basil to go with the Roma tomatoes - yummo!
Today the postman made Maggie nuts as he delivered a box from Amazon to the front door. These were inside:
More specifically, here are the book titles and authors. You might recognize that I selected books that were written by authors whose blogs I follow, namely Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara and Oh, Fransson!, which is written by Elizabeth Hartman. I've been admiring the work they both do on their blogs for a while and darnnit, it was time to buy their books!
The third author, Anita Grossman Solomon, is someone I caught on Simply Quilts years ago and my jaw dropped when I saw her super-simple cutting techniques. As long as I was surfing around Amazon anyway I decided it was time to spring for her book. I was actually READING it tonight -- that will shock all who know me because they know I NEVER read.
The fourth author, Chad Alice Hagen, does amazing wet felting projects and I just had to get her book.
So now, if I ever sound bored, you can tell me 'no excuses' since these 5 books should keep me busy for ages!
