Here is what we have been up to:
I finished my fall yarn wreath and quite satisfied with the results. :)
I cut out cardboard letters, Z-I-O-N, to finally make a sign for Zion's door, planning on using yarn for this as well. I've yet to actually wrap a single letter, or figure out how I want to finish it.
I'm knitting again…and lately wondering if I have post-partum-arthritis, I had no idea that this actually exists, but my joints have not been the same since I had Zion, and I am starting to wonder if I should get them checked out. (Stay tuned for more on my current knitting projects.)
Baking, baking and more baking. I just did a dozen or so each: M&M Sugar Cookies & Chocolate Chip Cookies. Zion is great at stirring, and quite territorial about it as well. Future baking plans…definitely want to do more cupcakes, for starters these and then definitely these as well!
FAIL notice…remember this post here? Yeah, well, I totally nailed the starter, but I couldn't find a good/easy enough recipe to start out with…and so, well, the starter went right into the trash. Boo!
While I'm admitting FAILures, I might as well update you on this journey here. Yeah, remember that running thing I was talking about? I haven't. Not even once. Ran. Double boo!
I'm blessed to be working my tail feathers off to coordinate sending Christmas care packages to the MacDella Cooper Foundation Academy in Liberia, Africa…if you are interested in participating…send me an email. 60 boys and girls, orphaned by violent civil war will be receiving backpacks filled with goodies to ring in the holiday.
The winds of change are blowing in our family, if that sounds vague, it is intentional, and you'll have to stay tuned for details. Don't you love cliffhangers?
