So far so good.

I realize that I have no right to complain about having a bad day. Things could be much much worse - and for many people they are. I get it. really, I do. I'm just happy that I seem to have broken my little irritating streak of sand in my shorts style annoyances!
I went to breakfast with Evad today at our favorite breakfast place - CHIPS. They have fan- fucking-tastic pancakes and omelets. Today, though, they had something that called to me from the specials menu:
Raspberry and Blackberry Croissant French Toast.
It was three slices of croissant, prepared like french toast with glorious mounds of raspberries and blackberries on top. It was drizzled with a raspberry reduction, and dusted with powdered sugar. No, I didn't take a picture. I was too busy eating. The one owner came up to see if I liked it. Ha! I told her I want to eat it everyday - possibly live in it. Three of my favorite things in the world in one food dish. Heaven.
Excuse me while I wipe drool from my chin....
In knitting news, I worked on my KAL sweater last night! Evad and I went to see Julie and Julia. It was really something special. We enjoyed it intensely. Movie knitting is perfect for this sweater - especially the skirt bit. (No shaping to worry about!) The air conditioning was awesome. I hadn't been working on the sweater because I was too hot at home, but two hours of uninterrupted air conditioning knitting kicked ass!

I can't wait to see Julie & Julia. I read the book and now I'm curious to see the movie. The french toast sounded like it was to die for. Yum!
