Mid Winter Break Blahs

Here we are at the end of break.

We did not go anywhere exotic or fun.
We did go to the movies, a birthday party and the rink.

We did play countless hours of video games and watch lots of tv (boys)
We did read 2 books (me)

Son #1 wants to grow things, here is his new project, tomatoes.
I will keep you updated.

No knitting, the socks are still waiting at the heel, I haven't decided if I want to do short row, or heel flap.

Sister is MIA.

2 hours

That is how long it is taking son #1 to eat dinner.
Son #2 finished after an hour.
This is so out-of-control.

It's not like I made them eat liver and onions and lima beans.
It was pork chops, cooked in the crock pot. With sweet spices.
They said it tasted funny. I thought it was pretty bland.

I am locked away upstairs, and guess what?
The wi-fi that is based in the basement, reaches all the way up here!

She is so bossy

Sister says I need to update the blog
Sister says she is tired of looking at the socks

Maybe Sister should try and come up with witty and exciting things to talk about if she has that much time on her hands :)


I was home with a sick child for 2 days this week. I did a lot of nothing.
Read a book, did lots of laundry, started a new sock.
I am using what I thought was solid pink yarn, but it isn't, there is sort of a stripey thing going on (2 different shades)

I'm not happy about that.

Maybe I'll give Sister the not-solid-pink socks; then she can put them on her Facebook page, 'cuz I think that is where she is spending all her time lately, she sure isn't calling me.

Here are the socks. I will wear them this week.
Hubby had camera with him in DC, sorry for the delay.
