So, I figured I should wash my winter socks and get them ready. These are all my hand-knitted socks that keep me so warm in the winter. I wash them before I put them away for summer but I like to wash them again after they've sat in the drawer all summer and fall.
It is beautiful today....going to be 71 and I went to get the mail and I need to sit outside or take a walk because the end is coming....the end of the warm weather that is. I hope it's not the end but a cold front is coming in tonight which could cause severe storms in our area. They always come at night too. Thank goodness I have my weather radio to go to sleep with.
Meanwhile, I am working on final finishing the ornaments....a little late this year. I also need to make some shrimp cocktail sauce for the shrimp cocktail tonight. I will have some crackers, cheese and summer sausage. I made the Cuban Black Bean soup and it was good but not good enough to make again. This gal said they loved it so much they served it at their wedding reception. Maybe they were Cuban but it wouldn't be my choice.....I'd go for Penzey's Beer, Brat, and Cheddar soup at my reception.....just sayin'.
I ordered my first book for 2022 but they sent me part of it online until the real book arrives.....the Kindle edition was $13 while the paperback with free shipping was $10...it will be here the 4th..on my birthday....I can't wait! I have some other books lined up for 2022 which I will share with you later. I checked out NYT's best sellers, NPR's editor's picks and Amazon's top 100 of 2021.....I found Amazon's lists and categories easier to navigate and find the type of books I enjoy.
