Good morning and happy Friday! Once again, I am connecting with Nancy over at A Rural Journal for her weekly Random 5. It’s been a great way to connect with other bloggers, so come join the fun!
Here’s my Random 5:
- I finished knitting my first hat this week. I won’t show it yet, because I want to do the blocking and finish work, but I’m pleased with myself.
- My tip for the week: always get the right tools for the job. When I was making said hat, I tried to use my double-pointed needles instead of a circular one, because that’s what I had in the house. It didn’t work out, though, so a quick trip to my local yarn shop, and I was good to go! With the right needles, it went faster and easier.
- We arrived in NYC last night. It was our first flight into JFK, and we waited in line for 45 minutes for a cab. It took less time to get from JFK to Chinatown than it did to wait for the cab.
- I’d love to tell you about my Neighbor from Hell, but since we’re in a legal battle with them, I’ll keep mum for now. The good news is, he’s a lot older than we are, so odds are that we’ll outlive him. We figure he’s going to be a thorn in our sides until the day he dies. He’s just that kind of guy.
- When one decides to live gluten-free, then more planning needs to go into travel. We ate a hearty breakfast, and then ate lunch at the airport rather than getting food on the plane (I read Delta’s menu, and the only gluten-free option was cheese and dried fruit). For the flight, I took some homemade gluten-free granola and some apples. We needed something before bed, and the nearest open restaurant was Italian, which is a bit like a recovering alcoholic going into a bar…but I found a nice shrimp salad on the menu. We’ll see how the rest of the trip goes, but so far, so good.
Have a great weekend!
