New Favorite site and knitting update

So I love this site. http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/ She uses her crockpot every day. Some of her recipes sound pretty off the wall but some sound really yummy. I love my crockpot so I have bookmarked this and will be making some recipes (definitely the tapioca).


Today was one of those days where I spent a lot of time in between projects browsing cooking blogs. I love to cook but since I am taking the H & R Block Tax course three nights a week, I don't get to cook as often as I would like. But the class is over the end of October so then I will start cooking more.


As for knitting, I recently finished a baby hat and booties (gifts for an upcoming baby shower) and they made me realize how much I WANT A BABY!!!!!


I have been playing around with my baby yarn since and I am making a blanket (for on the floor). I am using two strands of Lion Brand Jiffy in pink and one strand each of Caron Simply Soft yellow and white with size 17 needles. It is coming out very sturdy but I love the color combination so I thought I would keep it as a blanket for when the baby is playing on the floor.

Tonight I am going to cast on for some mittens to go with the hat and booties for my friend's sister's shower. I am going to use Bev's Minneapolis Mittens (http://www.bevscountrycottage.com/abctree.html).

Interesting...

This is my post from September 8 that I inadvertently forgot to post....

I love it when something amazing happens. Here is the story…there is a local Ale House and I am signed up for their newsletter. Well, I received a notice that it was Brian’s birthday. So being curious (aka nosy) I went to the site and looked and Brian was a year younger than me in high school. He and my best friend used to sing together. I thought it was pretty interesting and then I noticed that Brian had a myspace page. When I checked out his page, I noticed a picture of my best friend (we lost touch after I moved) so I sent a message.

Some things that do irritate me are bosses who blow off meetings with you and then get pissy when things don’t go their way.

Tomorrow is Princess Sunshine’s birthday. It makes us all very sad that her birthday is coming and we can’t see her. Hopefully, that will change next year and we will be able to see more of her.

As for knitting, I started Hococo the lemur (http://www.bhkc.co.uk/data/knitting_for_charity_08.htm) as a Christmas gift but I put it down because it was frustrating me because of all of those little pieces. I will pick it up in a few days and will then be able to finish up all the little pieces. Then it will just be putting it together. Oh joy.

I started a baby hat on Friday. I am making the Baby Beanie (http://www.save-on-crafts.com/babeknpaussu.html) for my co-worker’s sister’s baby shower at the end of the month. I will try to make some booties to go with it too.

I am taking the H&R Block Tax Prep class. Tonight is my third class. It seems to be going okay. I find it all so interesting but that is because I am a nerd.
