Fruit of the loom

So you know how I’m not good at easing into things? Apparently that goes for October Improvement Month! as well.

The original to-do list had four things on it. Baby stuff. I gave up number four because, let’s face it, I am who I am. But I made up for it by adding that I wanted to start cooking more. And I’ve been successful!

Here’s a photo of the scrumptious salad I had for lunch (Ok, not exactly cooking, but still, food preparation!):

Well, in the spirit of jumping in with both feet, I’ve decided to add one more. I want to get back in to a hobby I used to have: crocheting.

Ok, before you start imagining me as an old woman with a shawl and cat in bed every night by seven (yikes…too many of those are already close to the truth…), you just have to trust me that I want to make cute, moderately hip things. If you don’t trust me, well…ok, fine. You are off my list of people to make mittens for.

An unlikely hero

A piece of cheesecake saved my life.

Ok, that’s perhaps a little dramatic. A smidge. What really happened is that I was trapped in a really awkward conversation about teenage prostitution (don’t ask), and my dear friend Mareina rescued me with an offer of sharing some cheesecake. Of course, I readily accepted. (Momma didn’t raise no fool.)

All I’m saying is, don’t be so hard on this delicious confection. You might be next.
