I have a crapload of these Loteria cards. I just love them, but I've never done anything with them because I don't know what to do. Do you have any ideas? Once, in Mexico, I bought a box covered in them, which I still use as a jewelry box. So that's been done 'round here.

I've never even played Loteria. If it was one or two I could frame 'em, but I've got like two full sets of the big cards and one set of the cards you draw. Anywho. Maybe someday I'll figure it out.

Right now I am...

-Counting down the hours to the Lost finale.
-Really loving Jeannie Ralston's book The Unlikely Lavender Queen. I've had an advance copy lying around for quite a while now, and just happened to pick it up to read as it was being released. This was mostly prompted by the Lavender Festival being just around the corner. And now I find she's doing book signings and such here in town. I wonder if I should go to one. Hrm.
-Wearing a pimple cream mask. Yay!
-Working on this crochet heart pillow:

Well not at this precise moment obviously, but I was working on it a little while ago. I'm not making it for any particular person or reason. I have a lot of yarn leftover from the baby blanket, and I wanted to tackle something just a wee bit more challenging, but not so challenging that I can't work on it while watching So You Think You Can Dance, ya know? Of course you do.
-Really hankering to bake something. What should I bake? It should probably have fruit in it. I've got a lot of fruit 'round here lately. Watermelon, apples, pears, strawberries, and I've had my eye on the cherries at the store. They're almost perfect. Might have to peruse my Cooks Illustrated online subscription to see if I can get inspired. I don't use that thing enough and really it's the coolest. I can search by ingredient, and there's a high success rate for me with their recipes. Especially their baking recipes. Then again, why I think cranking up the oven when it's 95 degrees outside is a good idea, I'll never know.
