Our neighborhood has several Facebook pages that I'm a member of, and one of them is full of knitters and crocheters. So I wrote a post asking if anyone could make one for me, in exchange for cash or trade. A woman I've never met, wrote back and said she'd give it a whirl. The next day, she posted that it was done and ready to pick up, free of charge. Our hood is sorta awesome that way.
So Santa wrapped it up and left it under the tree Christmas morning. It was, hands down, one of The Kid's favorite gifts. And really, who wouldn't want a dinosaur sweater for their pet tortoise?
You guys, how stinkin' cute is this?
The kids went back to school today, but I'm still in vacation/holiday mode.
The house is somewhat put back together, but I'm still in purge mode. It always feels good to get rid of stuff and free up some breathing room.
Also, I've finally committed to a back splash for the kitchen, so that project is next on the list.
I mean, it's only been a year and a half since we started the demo in there. We need to take time with these decisions, right?
I'm also excited to get back into a regular cooking schedule, so there should be some recipes showing up on the blog again.
I'm trying out two new ones tonight from my Pinterest boards and have high hopes.
I'll let ya know if they're worth repeating.
Okay, I'm going to force myself to stop typing now.
I'm in ramble mode, so I should quit while I'm ahead.
Back later this week....
