Greetings from the Big Easy!

I'm in New Orleans right now! It's hot. I left the heat in Maryland to come down here and enjoy a new kind of heat. I never quite understood humid before - but after spending a day here - I now understand the word to the fullest degree. You walk outside and are instantly sweaty. i'm not talking glistening sweaty - I'm talking big drops of sweat rolling off your forehead and clouding up your glasses sweaty.

We went out for dinner last night (after a long day at work) and I got Jambalaya - it was yummy. We are on Bourbon street at the Red Fish Grill. I was very surprised at how dead everything was on Bourbon street. Even though it really want't too effected by the hurricane directly - it is definitley feeling the effects - of no tourist!

Every other shop is a "Girls girls girls" kind of place and the other ones sell Hurricanes to go. Very interesting place.
I'll post pics and tell you more tomorrow - Im heading out again for my second evening in the Big Easy!!

Hi Jody! Thanks so much for your comments on my blog while we were away.

I'm sorry you are having so much trouble with the lace. It's true -- some of it is like knitting dental floss. If you can, try to start with a heavier yarn so you can get used to the yarn overs and not go blind trying to stare at the pattern!

Let me know how the Clapotis goes. I have not made one myself, but they intrigue me (and scare me).

Hope you are having a great time in New Orleans -- is it for fun or work?
