Check out Johnson's website to hear some of her songs -- she covers Prince's Tangerine, Springsteen's Streets of Philadelphia, but also composes. We liked Messin' Around, which she co-wrote with Craig Ross, and Rain, co-written with Steve MacKinnon (whose mom she pointed out in the audience).
6. Did a bit of shopping -- with the colder, wetter weather settling in, I need a few long-sleeved longer tops. Found a jade-aqua-ish jersey tunic, scoop-necked, great pockets that I really like for wearing over jeans. The young saleswoman thought I'd look great in it with the boots I was wearing and tights, but conceded that I might feel the look's a bit young for me. At home with leggings instead of tights, for sure, but I don't think I'd wear it out -- it's pretty short. Paul approved, though!
7. Cast on last week for Mim's Serpentine Mitts and I'm ready to figure out the gussets and start the cabling. I vaguely remember making mitts when the kids were small, so I think I've done gussets before, but it will be a learning curve. It's nice to have a small portable project again. (This photo's obviously from Mimknits -- my fingernails never look like that!)8. Did a ton of marking (well, 30+ papers anyway) and even a bit of reading. I hope to tell you about some of my reading soon, but I suspect marking's going to take up most of my time for the next several weeks.
So there's another weekend, gone too fast, and it's time to get organized for Monday morning.
