Duane and I hit several estate sales this morning. Linda wasn't with us today -- she has company from out of town AND today's her birthday. Happy Birthday, Linda! (We'll be celebrating her birthday later this week or next weekend.) Duane and I both found a few things at the first couple of sales but the last one was the best. HUGE amount of yarn along with knitting needles and crochet hooks. We'll be sharing our spoils with Linda when we see her and there's plenty for all three of us plus lots of yarn to send with the skeins we already have set aside for The Humble Stitch.
LibriVox It's a 1908 reprint of a book published in 1903 and hasn't been recorded yet for the LibriVox catalog. It's going into my pile of 'books for LibriVox when I get a break from paid recordings.' I with I could do both at the same time but I've found that it's discombobulating to go back and forth between books. I prefer recording one at a time.
Afterwards, we headed back to Duane's part of town to hit Starbucks for some coffee and a snack. Bummer alert! Due to a problem with the city water system that occurred yesterday, Starbucks was open but had a sign up stating that they could only sell bottled items and prepared foods. So we had to skip our coffee and substitute bottled water with a treat instead. There was a big printed sign on the door of Starbucks and another sign (along with today's newspaper headline regarding the water fiasco) sitting on the counter where you place your order. While Duane and I were having our treats with water, a local news team drove up and took a close-up shot of the sign on the Starbucks door. Guess a lot of people went without their coffee today. Supposedly the 'boil water' alert will end after tomorrow.
