We do have a grocery store in town on the coast--it is called Chester's and as benefitting a grocery store in a vacation town, it is well stocked in frozen pizza, chips, ice cream, and beer and wine. It also has a liquor 'aisle'---in most of Oregon, you can only buy hard liquor at a hard liquor store, but I guess in small towns they make exceptions? It's the same with gas--you can't pump your own except in small towns (and on Native American casino property). So anyway, I don't think we'd find duck at the Chester's. We can also drive 15 minutes to Lincoln City but I think I'll just organize it all to be able to tote it over before we go.
There has been a bit of knitting, and this is the 'boxed and cabled' pattern. I'm kind of a sucker for interesting/non conventional sweater patterns, and this is one. I'm currently working on one of the front 'sides':
Right now it looks like of baby poop brown but it is actually dark gray--I guess it is a warm dark grey and that is why it looks kind of brown on the iPhone.
And it's cold here! 28 degrees this morning. There's frost on all the roofs. I don't think I have any place I need to go today--and there's chili in the refrigerator that I made yesterday. Chili is one of those few things I make well, and yesterday I grilled the meat and the veggies on the grill and just threw them in a pot with crushed tomatoes and beans and it turned out delicious.
I'm reading "Nine Perfect Strangers" by Liane Moriarty and on one hand it is taking a while to get started and on the other I've only been reading it about ten minutes a night for the past three nights so that might explain that. I don't know why but this year's time change really messed with me, sleep wise, and it shouldn't---shouldn't one be really tired when one's 'normal' bed time comes around? Yeah, not me. But I might be back on track now.
Have a lovely day! Thanks for visiting the blog!!
