Happiness in Boxes

Today was yarnbox day:
 The sequined and the variegated definitely go together, but I can't account for the teal-y blue.  I'm sure the sequined and variegated will go into a thin-ish, airy-ish scarf.

Shari wears scarves year-round, which got me thinking about lightweight, fluttery neckwear.  I'm probably too hot-natured to wear even the flimsiest scarves in spring and summer, but you can't argue that they add an awful lot to a look.

Speaking of Shari, I drank some tea at her house that absolutely floored me.  She had gotten hers on a trip to Israel, but, fortunately, it's available online.
Direct from Jerusalem, I'll have you know.  It is absolutely my favorite tea.   There are also a couple of blends from David's Tea and The Tea Table that I'll try to never be without, but this is true nectar.

Had a thought today about how to put a twist in the Hunk and Chick contests;  will turn it over in my mind for a while yet.  You'll all find out in plenty of time.

Smack.

Not Really in My Color Wheel

10.  Red There isn't a lot of red stuff in my life.  Never has been.  I remember exactly three red tops I've had in my life, maybe a couple of skirts with red print.  My one red fashion statement has been my red cowboy boots, modeled after my Daddy's red patent leather ones with the gold toe tips.


Red just doesn't suit my coloring.  Mama could wear it.  Hannah can wear it.  It's just never been a big part of any of my color selection life.  I gravitate toward purples and blues and grays, some green.  I avoid orange at all costs.  At least red doesn't awaken that kind of loathing in me.


Guess Free Association is our best plan, then.

9 days until you can submit Knitters' Hunk and Knitters' Chick nominations!

I am late to a lot of parties.  I scarcely ever go to movies, so by the time I watch a film via streaming, or borrow a DVD from Netflix, everyone's fever has come and gone.  Since I read non-fiction almost exclusively, novels that everyone else has long since read and fawned over don't often appear on my radar.  Hence,
If memory serves, Kathy's daughter talked about this book in one of her reading posts over the last few months.  Briton read it long ago, and thoroughly enjoyed it, and it is his copy that I've borrowed and am just sailing through. What an engaging read.  Most of you have probably already read it;  did you like it this much?

For Those About to Nominate. . .

NOMINATIONS ARE CLOSED.

The names of your three Knitters' Hunk and three Knitters' Chick in the comments section, if you please.  You have until 6 PM Eastern Saturday night to submit and/or change your nominees.
As promised, here are mine*: Chris Evans  Sam Neill George Strait Drew Barrymore Rashida Jones Tea Leoni
