Well, we do other things, sometimes, too. The boys decorated some cookies last month at their after school group. Cookies Rock, haha. They were really good. Click to make big, so you can see the awesome decorations.
Thanks for all of the well wishes. The Little Diva is feeling better. On her sick day, we sorted crayons, markers and colored pencils. And we tested every marker. A lot of drawing goes on in this house and we need to make sure the materials work, right? LOL
Thanks also for the nice comments about the irritating person in my life. I'm still upset, but I'm not going to dwell on it. Or I'm going to try not to dwell on it.
Crazy blogger, the paragraphs are squeezing together again! Sometimes it fixes itself when I hit publish, and sometimes it doesn't. Oh well, colorful post once again.
I had so much fun yesterday knitting with Carrie and Melanie. Just what I needed. I've been working on some UFOs, and soap socks. Nothing new has jumped out at me. Which is rare. I usually have startitis, and then I spread the startitis around. Last night after dinner, LD and I knitted a bit more. She is on row two of her 250 stitch scarf. I've been working on my second pair of Jaywalkers. I don't know why I haven't finished them. I'm just slowly knitting them ... on and on. I love that pattern, and I wear the ones I finished all of the time. Weird!
Ok, one time Suz showed a couple of pics of "the lake" at different times of the year, so I thought I'd copy-cat her. :P
Here are two pics of Lake Michigan, just a few blocks from my house. One is in October, and one is from this morning, right after I dropped the kids off at school. The snow drift (that you can't see in front of me) is as tall as my van, and the ones down by the water are HUGE!
This other pic is of the bay across the street from my house. There are ice fishing shanties out there, and you can see the old building that I've shown before. Those snowdrifts are very tall, and the road is snow covered, as usual around here!
Well, I should go get ready to 'work' over at the neighbors. Tomorrow, the kids will be home early, so I'll have to fight to get the computer to read blogs. LOL.
Hope everyone has a great weekend, if we don't chat before then. :D
