we interrupt this faith story

to report that I've eaten my very first, warm out of my own garden, lemon yellow tomato in a tomato sandwich.

And that I've signed up for a socks class at a local yarn store.

And that I might have stocked up on the sadly discontinued Cotton-Ease at Hancock Fabrics (on sale) as a reward for accomplishing a couple of tasks which I dread doing.

We now return to our regularly scheduled programming.

cool!!! There's something really neat about eating the first produce of the garden. Last year I got to help eat the first yellow bell pepper my friend had successfully grown, after three years of trying. It was delicious, and very cool.

sorry, but what IS a socks class?

Hi Lorna,

It's a class where we are learning to knit socks. I took a picture this morning so should post it soon!

oops sorry. now I feel a fool :(

here in school those who take handicrafts as an option in grade 5-6 learn how to make socks - using four needles. I watched my daughter with fascination and she sat there, tongue out, full concentration.

Nice winter socks at the end. Pink and black :)

A Socks Class sounds like fun! I am mourning Cotton-Ease as well, and I can't find it anywhere. This time last year I knitted about 15 adorable hats out of it for the church fair. Oh, well.

Real Tomatoes are proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.

I sadly cannot grow the big 'uns here in the Berkeley fog (one price we pay for having God's own air conditioning), but I have been enjoying Central Valley tomatoes from the Farmer's Market for the last six weeks or so. Yum.

Daughter has been knitting for about two months, and she's making socks. Socks to take to college, socks for mom.

One day, she was about to finish one, and she put it on to make sure it fit. We referred to it as the Ninja Sock. Take a look and you'll see why.
