Just a few things

DSC01426

For my BIG Christmas present this year, I got a professional deluxe edition KitchenAid Mixer. I love that guy.

But I also got a gift card for Target from my mom. It was a hard decision for me because there are so many things at Target that I could buy. But I decided on a Garmin Forerunner; it uses GPS to track your runs so you get the exact distance, pace, and time. See it there in the upper left corner?

These books arrived in the mail today, finally. I ordered "Teaching with Love and Logic" and "The Pearls of Love and Logic" so I can try using some of the techniques with my kids at school. Love and Logic has worked really well for both of my kids but I need some help translating it to the school setting.

The other book is "52 Projects Random Acts of Everyday Creativity", I saw the website 52projects.com and decided I must have the book.

Hopefully I will have time over Christmas break to read and knit.

Happy Holidays from my family to yours

WOW! Things have been wild around here lately. School program, field trip, birthday party, family gift giving, baking, cooking, meetings...etc, etc, etc. But next week things should be much calmer.

Knitty and Housework

So, I have a ton of cleaning I need to do around the house, but what am I doing instead??? Dreaming about how I'm going to spend all my Christmas money on yarn for things from the new Knitty.

Pocket Creatures
are a must for stocking stuffers.

A new watch is on my Christmas list - Boogie Time

I have 2 balls of sock yarn waiting to be made into Thuja and Pomatomus

Miss Beeton would look nice in some homespun.


P.S. The doorbell just rang and the mailman brought my Interweave Knits Winter. How much knitting happiness can one person stand.
