Late New Year goals............

but I do plan to make some. It is just a matter of being able to sit down and list them - they're in my head & I've begun already on some of them!

Shopping today - regular weekly chore & a trip to Costco. Anyone who knows Costco knows it can be a stressful experience, one knows ahead of time that it will be a big bill, but it is still somewhat of a shock & we DO use a list with very little going off from it.

Am now in process of making bread, cooking some pumpkins and getting apples ready to be made into sauce. The ones stored in the garage frig were getting soft, so it's time.

I've been selected to be a test knitter for Paula of Knitting Pipeline Podcast - she is designing a shawl to be sold by Quince & Co. yarn company. They sell yarns grown & produced in the United States. As one of my "soapbox" topics I totally support made/grown/put-together in the US products and always purchase such if it is available. Plus, that yarn is so-so-so nice. If you knit I recommend it whole-heartedly

Alas, I don't knit but I do crochet. I know very little about yarns.

People generally speak of Costco shopping in glowing terms. Not me. I find the experience of going there overwhelming. I don't like the warehouse effect with the high, bright lights. We buy about a half dozen items there and usually go with blinders on -- in and out. I know an elderly couple who stop there daily and consider Costco first when shopping for their needs.
