It really isn't all that hot today, at least in my apartment and I am not running my fan yet. Of course, I know it is very hot outside but I haven't even gone down to check my mailbox in the lobby yet. Tomorrow afternoon there is a good sale at Michael's from 4 to 8 so I'm heading over to get more yarn. I have a coupon for the sale that gives 25% off the total amount on the receipt. I will be able to get yarn for $.95 a ball instead of $1.25 plus tax. I have a lot of yarn still but am out of the solid colors for my doll dress pot holders so this will be a good opportunity to stock up and make more profit.
Friday potluck was a good turnout and we had a lot of good food, some healthy, some not. I confess to eating a piece of peach pie and some sort of chocolate pudding, chocolate chip. graham cracker, whipped cream concoction. YUM. My cheat day.
A food coalition brought us a lot of watermelons, potatoes, onions, cherries, peaches and vanilla yogurt yesterday morning. There's still a lot of potatoes and onions left and we put out the word for residents to tell their families to come and get them because we don't have a cool place to store them. I boiled a pan of potatoes this morning and had fried potatoes and onions with an egg for breakfast.
