Forget too rich or too thin... the truth is you can never have too many pockets

Several years ago, Costco was selling these really nice heavy wool ruanas. I got one - a grey and white plaid with red on the other side - reversible. Because it has no curves, it folds completely flat so it made the perfect car blanket. But I never used it. So I brought it inside and put it in the closet and still never used it and forgot about it. Finally in my closet reorgs this year I found it again. I hung it on a hook by the front door and have already worn it out several times. It's just a great weight to throw on for a quick errand.

Today I wore it to the store in the next block and it was great. But, I thought on the way home, it would be so much greater with pockets. So I came home and found some nice red wool fabric that matched perfectly. It had been a blanket I bought at Goodwill to use for lining of a vest that never made. It still had the nice blanket edge which I used for the top of giant Captain Kangaroo pockets. Now it is just perfect! And back on the hook ready for the next errand.

I cleaned out the yarn project bin finally. And finished my audiobook. And took the Amazon return back and went to the store down the street because they have a pop up hand made soap shop this week. I wanted and got a nice, big bar of lavender soap which is exactly what I wanted.

Now I am home and the house is tidy and the cats are knocked out one on top of the other and the collar is still on.


My next audiobook - the new Michael Connelly is out today and now downloaded onto my phone for starting tonight.

All is nice and fine.
