Today, we visited Bethlehem, and suddenly, I understand why millions of people make the pilgimage each year...

It is well worth the trip, to Vegan Treats Bakery.

Yes. Bakery. Vegan. Freaking Awesome.

We went on a mystery ride. Sam fully enjoyed our first stop at the Crayola Factory... then as we got into the car & he asked about the next destination, I told him it was a bakery with all kinds of wonderful desserts. His little face dropped-- "But what if the desserts aren't vegetarian?" Oh, Sam... they will be. Every single one of them.

He chose a glazed donut with rainbow sprinkles... "Well, they had donuts at camp when Elan got a sister, and I couldn't have one." (Veg mommy's heart drops) Needless to say, he loved loved loved the donut... and at some point we realized that he had never had one before, and the patrons & staff of the Vegan Treats Bakery produced a collective "Awww!" at watching the boy experience his first ever donut...

If that ain't mecca, baby, I don't know what is. My boy agrees.

And right next door?

An eye doctor!

Jonathan wants to buy the practice... I briefly considered. We peeked inside-- it would need some cosmetic improvements, and a little renovation, starting with the widening of the front door to accommodate the fat ass I would quickly develop if we had an office next door to a vegan bakery. We will stick with our office for now.

We came home, kids went to sleep easily... I finished HP7

Good book.

Good day.

Good life.

Aaah... :)

Sorry-- I was captured by the Sugar & Cream cult.

I told you those potholders were addictive. After I crocheted one, I crocheted another... and another... and another...

Then there was plenty of yarn left, so I did a bib from Mason-Dixon Knitting.

(hmm... have to add a little on that buttonhole side... oops)

Those are a little addictive too... so I did another one.

Then I happened to be at Michaels, buying supplies for a present Sam & I are making... and just *had* to buy a little ball of Sugar & Cream to make a bib for Tali...

THEN... just when I was thinking I'd break free of the Sugar & Cream cult, and go back to normal knitting, SOMEONE felt the need to send me a picture of her latest WIP...

(the bag, not the cat)

Suddenly I felt the need to make a Vegetable Market bag. Why? To carry produce home from the market, of course! (I am fully aware that the chances of me ever having this bag with me at any sort of market are minimal). So off Tali & I went to Michaels again, with plans to buy another huge ball of Sugar & Cream. You should be aware that there is plenty of Sugar & Cream in my stash... I just like buying new yarn.

Well. I was saved. Michaels has discontinued the large balls of S&C, so there were none available for me to buy. Hmmph.

But I did have that 40% coupon in my pocket... and hey, did you know that there is now SELF-STRIPING Sugar & Cream???


So there may be a little bit more cotton usage before this phase is up. Stay tuned.
