Well.

I'm pretty sure I have the best blog friends in the history of blogging. They're encouraging and supportive and sure know how to make a girl feel good.

Thank you!

And to put a little frosting on that wonderful cake (that I won't be eating right now unless it's a very special occasion), I found a number that I *do* like, such as -20.6 as of this morning! That brings a little light to an otherwise dreary day!!

Last-night
Randomly...

I walked down to the old Eagle Mill/proposed new library on Thursday night and the beautiful sky, above, was one of my rewards on the way home.

I made the best -- and easiest -- roast chicken ever last week. I had a nice little chicken from Trust Local Foods, and it turned out great. I don't know how (or if) that recipe would work with a larger bird.

My sister started a Rio blog last June and has finally made her second post -- with help from Mack. It's adorable, so you must.

No farmer market today -- we planned it that way and, what do you know, it's the only Saturday morning this whole season that I've awakened to rain!

Next week is the last of the season in our little 'hood and attendance will definitely depend on the weather, which could be anything from 30F to 70F (or even 90F!)... you just don't know at this time of year.

I've been adding to the listings of currently available Make.Do yarns -- Realize Sport, Be Fingering/Sock, and Compose Lace. The process(es) shall continue over the weekend as I continue to slowly ease into this little endeavor. So far, so good!

Congrats on 20+ lbs - that's something to be proud of!

Totally dig the loveyourauntie .com idea.
A couple of years ago I tried the same roasted chicken recipe. It was very, very good, but the oven got a good cleaning the next day.
Go, Vicki, go! Between weight loss and yarn business you've got it goin' on!

I love, love, love your yarn. I look forward to seeing more colors and ordering some soon.
Congratulations on all of the changes you are making to become healthier. I set myself up for disappointment all the time when I have numbers in my head that I want to see turn up at doctor appointments. My doctor always says that every positive change in something to celebrate. In his notes for my next appointment he usually writes things pertaining to lowering my cholesterol, etc. and then ends with something like " be good to yourself."
I suggest the same for you! Celebrate. You give me hope.

You should be so proud! Weight loss and lifestyle change is so hard! I think I may be doing some yarn shopping too as my first Rhinebeck has been bumped to 2013! Happy Sunday Vicki.

See the labs don't tell the whole story. You are doing great. The new yarns are glorious- after I move I will be shopping. Enjoy your week.

Yay for you!!! Thanks for sharing the wonderful sky photo.

So AWESOME, Vicki! XOXO

Congratulations on your weight loss...it's such a big deal for so many of us. Keep up the great strides you're making with regaining your good health! And...I love the 'Butternut Squash' color of the yarn in this blog...it's perfectly fall. Cheers!

What a glorious yellow. So vibrant! *Want*
