And not only is she a great hostess, but she has turned my hand spun yarn into a gorgeous scarf! She bought this sparkly pinkish yarn at our Big Barn Sale a couple of weeks ago, and has given it a life and a purpose beyond just entertaining me while I spun it. That is awesome, and it makes me smile all over. It has new dignity, too -- I was calling it Barbie Barf, but she has re-named it Ashen Roses. Dina's so classy.
I missed seeing everyone who came to the LRB today, probably because the heat drove them away before I could get back. My wonderful AC/heater unit that has served me well for years, all of a sudden can't keep up with our Texas temperatures, and it was kinda toasty in there. Asbestos Awards to everyone who stuck it out to the very end...
