Don't know what a sliderule is for

I sold a lot of yarn this week- 7 skeins! Think that's not a lot? Well it takes me approximately 6 hours to create 1 skein. So that's a whole week's worth of work, and I've been scrambling to put more stuff up in my shop. Not that I'm complaining...I'm thrilled that people like and buy my handspun yarn!

Yesterday we went to Harlem with a friend and had chicken and waffles. YUM. Seriously, why don't we go more often? It was all of a 40 min trip. And I really like fried chicken. Or nearly anything fried, really. We also ordered some fresh lemonade, which the kids enthusiastically guzzled. After his second sip Zion cheerfully announced that, "Lemonade is fucking delicious!". Our (childless) friend said it was the cutest thing she'd ever heard.

We also had a fun time keeping a watchful eye on our bank this week. They misplaced a check I deposited at the beginning of the month, and that took a few phone calls and trips to the bank to resolve. Happily it is resolved now, according to the letter they mailed me. The banker says the money will show up in my account on Monday, so I'll reserve final judgment until then. That'll teach me to go to human teller instead of an ATM.

This one took me a min to get-- I totally had the melody in my head before I figured out what song it was.

Wonderful World, Sam Cooke. :)

And I've never been for fried chicken in Harlem but it sounds like something I should do. Where did you go?

i am jealous of the chicken, am excited about the interest others have in your hand-spun yarn and am glad the bank figured out the check issue. i have to admit that zion is funny. i would have to giggle at that as well. my boys have all had dawn dish liquid in their mouths so are on the wagon right now with out dirty talk in front of me, although behind my back they seem to do whatever they want. owen is infatuated with anything having to do with "ass" right now. boys are fucking gross.

Yum indeed on your chicken and waffles. Amy Ruths wasn't there when I lived up there, but I've heard great things about. Next time you go, let me know!
