Does anyone know where to find Regia Jacquard yarn (aside from online)?

My sister sent me this book last week. She told me she has a copy and leaves it at work, where she starts each day with a new page. There is a short devotional for each day, and the verses are terrific reminders of what is truly important in life. What a great idea for a gift! Now I know my sister and I are reading it together every morning before we step into our little office worlds. She sent copies to my other sister and to my mom too, so there's a very good chance we ladies are all reading them together. I love that something so simple can bring such warmth to a girl. Thanks Buddy! I love you!

This is the progress of the first sock as of last night. Picture half of that, and you have what I did while I was away.
I did, however make it to two craft stores, one of which was beyond huge. Take about five AC Moore's and you're on the right track. There was SO much stuff there. I went with two other coworkers/crafters, and we spent over an hour in the store. We could easily have stayed much longer.
I almost decided to take up cross stitch, mostly due to all the really nice kits they sold. I was good though and saved my money.
So far he has only used one recipe for chimichangas. He did, however, spend lots of time looking through both books and reading up. I was excited to give him the sausage recipe book. It was a good find. The Mexican cookbook was on sale for $5 or $6, and we had just been talking about the fact that we wanted to try cooking Mexican at home. It had no pictures, but it was cheap, and it had lots of basic Mexican recipes.

Back to the sox game!

In the pic to the left Tommy is holding one of the surprises I brought home for him. It's a plastic cup with a straw. The straw pops up with the push of a button, and there is a cover on the top that pops the straw back in when it's not being used. It's not in the picture, but there is also a snack cup that screws onto the bottom. It's brilliant! Of course the whole Thomas theme doesn't hurt. I bought him a few other small things too, and I went Father's Day shopping for Brian, which was fun. I'll have to post more on that tomorrow.
Below: evidence of what I saw this morning. My flowers have bloomed! There were four flowers today and many, many buds. Aren't they pretty?
