It's Friday Eve!

It is time to get happy. It is the moment I have been waiting for since Monday morning. Last night I cast on for the first time in a very long time, just a dishcloth. It is the Shapely Diamond from Leisure Arts Kitchen Bright Dishcloths. Maybe tonight I will knit the first row. I have two current reads, the first The Ex Files, by Victoria Christopher Murray, and the second is the first in a new series A Crafty Killing it is A Victoria Square Mystery, by Lorraine Bartlett. I picked up the book today at Books-A-Million. So just like always here in North Carolina we go from the 80's to the 50's during the day and tommorow morning we have a chance to go down to freezing . I have trays of lettuce that I want to plant and I think I should wait a few day. I hope my fig tree will be okay. Just because I think this post needs a picture I am posting a picture of the salt fish (salt mullet) we brought about 2 weeks ago to cook. It was great we had fish and grits(its a southern thing) The pictures are from before cooking. Happy Friday Eve!

Let the planting begin!

On Sunday I put a few tomato seeds in starter pots. One of the tomato's is a grape type tomato, Jelly Bean Hybrid and a Red Cherry. I hope I have better luck than the last time I had no luck at all trying to start seedlings. This weekend I plan to put my lettuce in pots and the arugula seed I brought this past weekend. Still no knitting or crochet but I am trying to get in the mood again. Just finished reading Acting out, by Benilde Little. It was a great read and tonight before I go to bed I plan to start reading The Ex Files, by Victoria Christopher Murray. I am trying to plan my container garden and my in the ground. I plan to cast on by this weekend. I am glad tomorrow is Wednesday and the week will be half way to the finish, it has been a long week already.
