I saw this hat at Target the other day and didn't buy it because I know I can make something similar so easily with yarn already in my stash, blah, blah. Of course I won't, and now I wish I'd bought it, even if it was priced too high. I would never line it with fleece either, and this one had a nice, creamy, soft lining. I only saw one this color so I'm sure it's gone now. I did get a pair of black Ugg-type boots so now I have black and brown for this winter.
I've not been participating around blogland much lately because I've been about half sick with something -- cold/sinus/stomach bug/malaria/whatever. And it came the night before we started a big project with work. Shitty timing.
So unless something earth-shattering or completely hilarious happens that I simply must share with you, I'll be over here with a headache, wiping my nose, pooping, wiping my sore ass, sneezing, and typing.
Just so I don't leave you with that image in your head, I'll show you the new cookbook I got from Amazon the other day. I've had it on pre-order for a while now and was happy to see it on the porch. It did not disappoint and was a fun read, not to mention the good recipes I saw that I want to try. I've bookmarked at least a dozen...
P.S. I lived on Clark AFB on the island of Luzon in the Philippines for about 5 years of my childhood because my daddy was in the Air Force. I feel so sad for those poor people...as if they didn't have it bad enough even on a good day with the poverty over there. I'm saying prayers for their devastated lives and country. I hope you do the same.
