Well, it has been a busy last few days!! As usual I don't get as much accomplished as I would like, but I can live with it!
I've been baking...oops, 1 batch of cookies is missing as well as the dump cake and eclair cake, but still a few of these around. Baklava, Sugar cookies, Russian Teacakes, and Peanut butter fudge.
Cookie baking part deux to arrive maybe tonite or tomorrow...I'm a bit burned out, but want to use up my ingredients I just got for them...
This batch will last hubby a little while...no more til' next year ;)
(no the polident is not for me...works awesomely on DD's retainers!)
A bit of decorating....
Some hanging around in unladylike poses!
Trying to make spaghetti sauce like MIL's...not that I have to, but DD thinks I should try, so I am. I usually make mine in the crockpot to cook while I'm at work. We'll see how it goes...I did find the secret ingredient though...
My new point/shoot! Well, not new but was DD's. She got a new Nikon we got at a steal (hey, buy 2 laptops in a few months from a certain place and get quite the credit) so I'm learning...the food photos are from it. Now to get better software to upload them easier...she says it's in a box in her room...ahem..what box!
See, some people just like paper for presents...hehe..she knew when I threw this in the trash can, she kept whining and crying for it. So now it's in her basket. I think she smells the dogs from in-laws on it or something.
See...she found a new sleeping spot.
I did finish something in time...yeah me, who wasn't going to do any gift knitting. I give up, next year I'm planning and then we'll see..
Super Basic Hat Pattern only Ravelry link
Doubled Red..heart in Gray
She's allergic to wool and really didn't have anything suitable for her in the stash...so there you go. Didn't enjoy knitting doubled...have no clue why I did, guess I just wanted it to be thick and warm...
Hmmm what didn't get done...
Hedgehog, which was the only present planned, armwarmer to match SIL's hat (need to unbindoff and frog 3 rows cause it's too long, and knit the mate) teeny, tiny sock for SAM 6...yeah, I've got 4 days to finish..., and my felted Christmas trees...this is tree 2...hmmm maybe by next year.
Lots of lazing around, shopping still (son is a clothes horse LOL), and 1 more day off, then work 2 days, and 4 days off...now if the pager would take a vow of silence, it could be perfect ;)
