Home stretch

There were nine in attendance at book club last night. We went to a fairly new restaurant, kind of a satellite operation of a popular, well-established, local Italian restaurant, so the menu was pretty much the same, as was the quantity of food delivered (lots!)... finally delivered! Wow, the "mother operation" is a very efficient, well-oiled machine, and this new place must serve as the training ground. We had a very new waitress, who was real sweet and very interested in the book club and the importance of making time for girlfriends, but she was a greenhorn and she wasn't getting any assistance.

To be honest, the two books discussed at last night's meeting were ho-hum; I'm much more interested in those chosen for next time, even though I've already read them both. The first is my recommendation, Population: 485: Meeting Your Neighbors One Siren at a Time, a memoir by Wisconsin author Michael Perry. This is the first book I've actually read before recommending; I usually like to choose a book that I think would be good and discover it along with everyone else. The other book chosen this time is Bel Canto, by Ann Patchett. I'm looking forward to a refresher of both before the next meeting, and will catch up on some other reading in the next few weeks.

I missed the first 20 minutes of the debate, but watched the rest as I started the thumb of the second thrummed mitten. I picked up more than I needed, did a k2togtbl a few times, and I'm not having such a hole problem with this one. I think the first pair will be completed tonight! Woohoo.

Oh yeah, I stayed focused and got pretty well caught up yesterday! Another Woohoo.
