Spring


It’s Easter, and I’m getting ready to spend the afternoon with Judy and her Fabulous Family. There will be chocolate. And Yahtzee, I hope. I’ve missed a few chances to sit down and post – I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to get to all the things I was planning to write. But here I am, now, for a minute or two.

All of a sudden I’m busy again. Work is more like it ought to be – busier, more demanding, needing my closer attention. All that is fine with me, because the slow pace of the off season begins to wear on my nerves after a while. Later, when summer really gets here, I’ll go back to whining about my busy work life. For now, I’m happy to be so occupied.

By the way – if you are watching that wretched Real Housewives of New York City on Bravo, you will see why I might complain about Summer People. Those women, their offspring, and their entourages? They are the bane of my existence. I watched a little bit of one episode and had to turn it off. I swear I’ve seen the guy with the pink cowboy hat in my store (without the hat, thank goodness).


The Crest of the Wave shawl keeps growing. It’s not very photogenic right now, though. I’ve knit about 40 inches so far, and I’ve just cracked the second skein of yarn. I could knit for miles!



It’s good knitting.

  1. I’d have to say that those “ladies” give NY-ers a bad name. I lived on LI for 33 years and never even tried to venture East during the summer months.The shawl is looking lovely!

  2. Did I ever tell you that I grew up in the Berkshires where my family owned a breakfast/lunch place much frequented by, probably, the same people who visit your shop?Nowhere else on earth would a person return their child’s sunny-side-up egg on the grounds that “this yolk is simply too small.”You are a saint.I am in Vermont now, where people tend to believe that looking like a self-centered jerk is a worse crime than suffering a bit with a not-perfect meal.Have a great pre-summer rush. 🙂

  4. I haven’t seen the show but I read an article about these women in the NYT. (One of those delicious NYT articles where they pretend to be writing objectively or even in a flattering profile-ish way, but really they are viciously skewering the person. Wouldn’t that be a great job?) What I can’t figure out is how they ever make it inside your bookstore. (You know, with all those BOOKS in the window.) xox Kay
