Orange You Glad I Didn't Say Banana?

Hi Knitters,
You know that knock-knock joke, right?
So I'm sitting at my weekly allergy shot appointment (major bummer), and I am looking at my orange Chaco sandals. J'adore. Then I glance in my knitting bag and I see this gorgeous Blue Sky Alpaca Bulky in pumpkin. Muy bien. Then I look back at my orange Chaco sandals, then back at the pumpkin yarn, then back at....you get the picture. I love being easily entertained in color.
I went to the market with my daughter after school to pick up some fresh veggies and fruit for dinner. This girl is obsessed with carrots that are still in their natural form, not the baby carrots in the bags. I have to agree with her. It is something about their length, texturey skin and then that burst of green at the tops. It is good.
She stood right by my side while I peeled and crinkle cut them. I could feel her breath on my arm. I love that so much.
These are my favorite veggies to look at. When I see radishes all I can think about is how much I want to knit them. I haven't done it yet but this has been going on for years. That's a little strange, don't you think?
best, susie
p.s. On second thought I may be asking the wrong crowd.
