For Christmas I got some shoes, and a Luther Vandross CD set and a key to my husband's heart

The kids had so much fun!

I have lots of pictures on Facebook.

I finished a hat for Ayanna (no pictures, yet, because she is napping). I made A LOT of progress on a sock for me. I am about two inches in on a hat for DeAndre'. It feels soooo good to actually see progress! Malik says he doesn't want a hat, but I will have made hats for all my children, so I found one on ravelry and will be knitting it up as soon as I am done with DeAndre's. At this rate, it will be done in time for Christmas.

When I am done with the heel turn, why do I ALWAYS pick up the gussets backwards! AAAARRRRGGGGHHHH!!!

More sewing

I went to Fabric Depot today and came away with a pretty good haul:

I want free fabric, so please excuse this link. Or go enter.

What did I do this for!!!

My son works at Goodwill. Therefore, I am often there to take him lunch when he forgets (which happens often), and pick him up.

Guess what I saw?

More importantly, guess what I bought!!!!?!!!

I couldn't resist it at only $40! Now I need to find it a home, and get some material, and some thread, and a book or two from the library, and some....

Some finishing

Well, I didn't do so hot at NaBloPoMo, but I am still here, so...

I finished two things this weekend:

This is a hat for a squirrel. Don't ask, my sister is a bit crazy

These were going to be gloves for Kandyce to go with her hat (see below). They are now going to Ayanna.

I finished this hat for Kandyce a week or two ago

First we went to my sister in law's house:

Then the power went out, so we went to my uncle's house:

This is most of the part of my family who lives in Oregon. We also have a branch in Colorado.

I started and finished a hat for Kandyce, and started some gloves for her.

O! M! G!

I was reading my blogs. I read Mini. Go to this page and scroll down to the information about the sock knitter. I suggest we (The Knitters) in a way similar to yarnharlot, take over the comment box!

According to Ravelry, I started this 4 days ago. It would have taken me ten minutes to finish, but I had to wait for delivery of my Sensor to finish it. LOVE IT!!! Now to get to running. I will start that on Wednesday.

Another new project...

However, it is a quick thing. However, it could take me two weeks to finish it, rather than the 20 minutes it should take.
I am starting c25k again next week. I bought a Nike + iPod Sport Kit - USA thing for my iPod from eBay. I found a pattern for a cozy for the sensor. Ravelry link. When I get the thing in the mail, I will finish it off.

I am not here quite daily this month, huh?

That is okay. It is not guilt. I have done better this month (I think) than the last two or three years COMBINED!

Doll for Christmas;
Corset Silk Tank Top;
Silky Negligee

The doll was supposed to be for birthday in August;
Corset Silk Tank Top - freshly started a few days ago - needs full concentration and for me. Therefore, probably won't get done!;
Silky Negligee - for a birthday YEARS ago. Maybe for a birthday next year.

Oh Kandyce!

Little to no knitting content, today.

I had such a good morning today!

Backstory: when Kandyce was 18 months, she had no words. The pediatrician recommended we see a speech therapist. We have been seeing her for about six months. She is lovely. However, I don't think she is doing anything for her. Kandyce is fine. She has always been fine. She didn't choose to talk. She had every other milestone knocked out of the park. I wasn't worried. She talks now. It is mostly not english, but more and more everyday. She sepaks in sentences of mostly not english. I am okay with this. However, everytime Sara came to the house, Kandyce would keep her big mouth shut. She would talk in single words once in awhile.

TODAY HOWEVER! She spoke to her just like she speaks to us! I was so excited and proud. She finally got to see what I see everyday!

Such a good morning!!!

Can't you see how much she has to say:

So, I have wanted to restart this for sometime. I even tried with the WordPress thing. I think, given that it is NaBloPoMo, I will try again, now.

Also, since I am currently attending school, it is a good idea to get something else to distract me from reading the chapter I am currently supposed to be reading!

So, as I said, I am in school. I am trying to get an associates in computers. I would like to be a Geek Squad when I grow up. I have been trying for a few terms, now, and honestly it isn't going very well. I have too much on my plate to spend enough time on my school work.

On my plate:

  • Yesterday I had a meeting at the middle school to help them get the website up and running.
  • I also had a meeting at the elementary school to help get the parking lot safer. We need to paint a crosswalk, and repaint some no-parking signs. This takes more work than you would think. I met with someone from the district yesterday to start the process. Truthfully, I think this year is too much to hope for.
  • Last Wednesday I had a meeting at the high school. Hopefully, we can get a yearbook there this year.
  • Tonight I have another meeting at the high school for the brand-new Parent Advisory Council.

This doesn't count my taxi duties for three kids at three different schools and a husband, or the simple fact that I have four kids.

I am knitting, but since I am currently at school, I don't have any pictures I can show right now. Let's see:

  • Socks for Birthday in 40 days
  • doll for birthday last August (maybe Christmas, now)
  • something for me!
  • more, I am sure, but...

Let's hope I have more everyday this month! I think I like it better than Facebook. I don't have many knitter friends there.
