What I did in Chicago...
It's only words

On the shelf

My sister Ann called this morning.  There's a bookshelf in their upstairs hallway that holds an eclectic collection -- whatever books find their way upstairs and then need to be "put away" somewhere land there.  Considering the occupants of the house range from one-and-a-half to slightly going-on-49, you can imagine.  The book that Mack pulled off that shelf and brought to his Mom this morning was Green Eggs and Ham.  I had to read that book to Annie so many times when she was a pre-reader that I came to HATE it.  Now, of course, I love it precisely because I hated it, and I can't wait to read it to Mack myself!


One more picture from Madison Michigan Avenue (where in the world was I?)... this one from the camera on my phone!  Yeah, I know, I don't get out much...

Football today!  My fantasy team is set -- no changes.  There's even a friendly sock yarn wager with an east coast Patriots fan to make it interesting!  There has been practically ZERO knitting in the past couple of days, so there will be some of that during the game, too!



I'm guessing you lost the sock yarn wager, sadly. What did you lose?


Looks like you had a fabulous time in Chicago! Is that picture who I think it is! Bleeeeeck. Hope you team did well!!


When I was a wee bairn, my parents decided to take my sister and I for a weekend trip on a friend's 32 foot sailboat. My mother picked up some books on tape for us at the library. One of them was Green Eggs and Ham which I had soon listened to enough to recite from memory (and can still do quite a bit of it). She also made us lincoln logs out of the asparagus stems -- hours of fun.


I took great joy in buying "The Hungry Caterpillar" for my niece. Our copy once got left by mistake at Papas house when we lived 200miles away, my Dad was very shocked that I had left it stuffed under the sofa!


Sock yarn wagers?! You are a die-hard!!
