Well, hello there! I'm still alive. What day is it? Geesh, I feel so out of it. I blame it on my sinus ailments that have had me feeling like crap these last few days. I HATE feeling yucky. It really puts a damper on my creative mojo. This weekend I spent a whole lot of time laying around, trying to rest (is that even possible with 3 little kids?), and tending to LOTS of laundry and dirty dishes. Exciting stuff, huh?
Today I am happy to be feeling better and I am thoroughly enjoying the little cool snap that decided to visit the deep south. Brrr - it was in the 30's last night and will be for the next few days. Then it's back to reality and highs in the 80's next. That's okay, I'll take it. This cool weather makes me want to curl up on the sofa with a warm quilt, my knitting needles and some yarn, while a loaf of bread is baking and a pot of soup is simmering. Doesn't that sound divine? Too bad I have a broken range. I've had to be creative with supper, using my toaster oven and crock pot. We're making do. The other day I made chicken noodle soup and last night I made meatloaf with roasted veggies and steamed green beans. Tonight we're ordering out :)
Look at that - I knit something for someone other than myself! It's not the original baby sweater I started last week, which ended up being big enough to fit Ava, but I like this one better. I still need to add some buttons and block it. I think baby sweaters may be my new favorite thing to knit. Love that instant gratification!
Just because I like to keep it real, this is what I allow to happen in order to have a little blog time - Ava did this while I was composing this post. It'll only take a few minutes to clean up, so worth it!
