It is F R E E Z I N G here today. This weekend our heater was turned on, can you believe that??? Not even October and we've had to turn on the heat and
bundle up good when going outside. It's only 33º right now....BRRRR!!!
As soon as the weather gets cooler, I bring out my knitting needles and go on the prowl for the perfect yarn to start making scarves etc. You know my greatgrandmother once asked me "why don't you try crochet?"....Ummm, I did, and I just can't get it right.
I'm a crafty person, I usually only need to try something once and then can go from there, but for some reason crochet doesn't agree with me. Oh I can make a huge long chain, just plain chain....but don't ask me to start making intricate designs, or even simple stitches (are they called that in crochet?), I give up.
So I started a scarf for Jasmine yesterday, isn't it amazing how fast knitting goes, within 5 minutes I had quite a bit done already. Can't wait to finish it, she wants me to add either tassles or pom poms, will see which one she wants once it's done....this child changes her mind a LOT.
Before I go on, let me just say that, if I have put on weight this weekend, I'm blaming it on Barb. Yes Barb and her Sloppy Joes. They were SOOOOOO good, I had three. Yeah you heard me, I said T H R E E!!! I did try to sneak in the last one later that night, but hubby beat me to it. Dagnabit!!!
Thank you Barb, I loved them and so did the family, they asked me to make them again soon. If you want to try this great recipe, go look here.
And while we're on the subject of food....go on over to Laura's blog and check out the Menu Plan Monday, there's a lot of great meals being served across the land. Yummy!!!
I am participating as usual, so go see my menus if you wish :)
You all know how much I love books, I am surrounded by them daily and always looking for the next read. I have been wanting to have a place to write down my reviews and thoughts, so it was only a matter of time before I jumped into another blog. Crazy, you say??? Maybe, but with all the books I read, I'm sure I'll have plenty of stuff to post about.
If you want to see it, go visit my Reading Nook, there's nothing there yet, but I'll have my first book posted later today.
I was also thinking that this would be perfect for Katrina's "Fall into Reading", which I'm going to join in, of course. Go on over and read all about it.
It's taken me all morning to write this entry. It's been a slow day, it's cold and dreary, I'm still sick, Nicholas is walking around sniffling and sneezing and hubby is home.
I love my husband, don't get me wrong, but when he's home during the day it throws my schedule off. I honestly don't know what time it is, are we eating now or was I cleaning the house??? No No No, don't let Nicholas start a computer game, it's his nap time. See what I mean??? I'm all confused and stuff.....it will just take me today to get used to the next shift he's going to be working, I'm sure soon things will be fine.
I've got laundry to finish and I need to get my project ready for tomorrow's "Tackle it Tuesday". I actually remembered to grab the camera for the before pictures. I tend to forget and clean everything up and then sit there thinking "oh man, I should have taken pictures". I'm serious, since I've started blogging, everything is a topic for a post. No matter what's going on, I'm sure I can turn it into an entry on the blog.
So it's 11:30 am and that means I need to get lunch started for my little one. You know he's hilarious, he says the funniest things.
Yesterday I was scolding him for something (can't even remember what), and while I was doing it, he turned around, came up behind me and hit my behind then said "Toot, I turned you off you can't talk anymore". LOL What do you say to that huh?!?!?!?
Then while in the bathroom, he called me in there for help, this is what he said "MOMMMMMYYY, I need your help, I need Charmin Ultra" LOL HUH?!?!? How does he even know what brand of toilet paper we use???
But anyway, I better head on out. You all have a wonderful monday and I'll see you back here tomorrow morning, coffee in hand. Oh and I did wipe down the monitor again just in case I spread some cold germs to you. See I care! :)
For dinner I'm fixing Chicken Tetrazzini and a salad. Right now, I have a couple Grilled Cheese Sandwiches cooking, they smell divine :)
