A Few Things

It’s been REALLY HOT around here these days.  And HUMID.  I don’t do well with that.  I’m a terrible wimp in the heat and humidity and more importantly– the things it does to my HAIR.  Horrendous.  Baseball hats and barrettes with a million bobby pins are my friends.

So, what did I do the other day?  I had to take Paul’s ’69 Buick GS for an inspection so, smart-wimp-in-the-heat that I am, decided to do my errands in it while I was out.

No air conditioning.  No power windows.  No power brakes.  Standard transmission. E-X-T-R-E-M-E-L-Y  slow traffic behind a dump truck on the way up The Hill making the trip home twice as long.  Never mind the fact that Paul keeps this car so clean and well-dusted (which on any other day is a great thing) that my purse kept sliding off the seat and things were flying out of it everywhere.  You can imagine my mood.

On another note, I took some pictures of my Miss Winkle on the mannequin and I just love it even more:

These really show the color well and it really is my most favorite purple in the world.  Really.

And lastly, I made these:

Blueberry Crumb Bars from Smitten Kitchen. Go make them.  Now.  And then enjoy them this weekend!

    The Miss Winkle pattern shows off the Periwinkle yarn beautifully. Made for each other obviously.
    More purple deliciousness with those blueberry bars.
