Denver Book Stores

The Tattered Cover Book Store is the go-to book store for DH and I, so we decided to visit a couple of other book stores in the Metro area on Saturday. A book crawl, as it were. Our first stop was at West Side Books where we were surrounded by walls and heaps of used books. DH caught a real bargain in getting six hardback novels for $5.00. Definitely a buy of the day! I picked up a new book of mazes to add to the Easter basket for one DGS.

We were off to The Bookies, a treasure trove of books and educational products. I have loved books since childhood and continue to draw great enjoyment and pleasure from children's books. The Bookies is the most marvelous place--filled with with every imaginable book and related items for children to relish and enjoy again and again. Of course, the Easter books were calling me. A few even left with me--a pop-up, a pull-the-tab, and a wonderfully illustrated story about a bunny feeling loved.

After a stop at the Baking In My Pajamas Bakery, we just had to make a stop at the Tattered Cover Book Store. It just felt wrong not to go there! As usual, I left with a stack of I-can't-wait-to-read-these books. Of course, we veered into the attached Encore Restaurant where wood-roasted artichokes and a chicken Cobb salad awaited me!
The birds feeding at the office window are enchanting to watch, though I can barely keep the feeder filled for them...and the occasional squirrel. I often place yarn scraps out for the birds to use for their nests. What to do with those itty-bitty yarn scraps? You too can be a force of nature, click here:

He will feed His flock like a shepherd. He will carry the lambs in His arms, holding them close to His heart. He will gently lead the mother sheep with their young. ~ Isaiah 40:11


Green, Green Grass

I finished the mid-March KAL with the Monthly Dishcloth Yahoo group
There's a link in the side bar for the Yahoo group. This is made with Berroco Comfort and size 7 needles. I truly enjoy each mystery project as it takes shape when I knit the several rows of directions that arrive daily via email. The color is "grass" which is greener than its appearance in this picture. I will actually use this as a dish cloth because of its shape. The square cloths will be put together for an afghan.
Have you done a KAL? Did you enjoy it?
The Lord is my shepherd; I have everything I need. ~ Psalm 23:1
