A Little Bit of This and A Little Bit of That

Sunday... the first day in almost a month where we didn't have to go ANYWHERE. Not even to the store, the gas station, or to take the kids ANYWHERE!


a day to make this

steam into that

Chinese potstickers. YUM! The oldest daughter helped stuff and roll all 52 of them. They were fabulous, and the house smelled SO good! I also cooked for supper, and put in a roast for tonight that we will eat in a few minutes. Cooking? I had forgotten what that meant. I was beginning to think cooking involved ripping open the packet and adding 2 Tbspns butter with 2 1/2 cups hot water and simmering for 15 minutes until ready to eat. Or else cooking was waiting in the drive through lane for the fresh batch of fries. This cooking is a real treat. I hope it lasts!

Yesterday, during a true day of rest, football, and a roaring fire in the fireplace... I did this..

All of the bobbins make it look terribly confusing, so be impressed if you like. The reality is that it really isn't that difficult, and the ARRRGGGHHHHyle socks are working much more smoothly than the last time. Only two tink episodes so far.

Tonight..... what? No Brownies? No Girl Scouts? No basketball? No horseback riding? No meetings? You mean it's a night at home?

Definitely knitting time!
