::A Day in the Life::



I saw this last night and printed it out this morning.  Sums me up pretty well.




Morning Knitting.  Alaina's Simple Seed Stitch Dishcloth.  I have been knitting a few months now.  I finally tried magic loop and made a boob beanie.  But, I do wish I had started with some simple dishclothes.  They are useful.  You can actually make something in  very little time.  The cotton dish yarn is inexpensive.  Oh yeah, and they are cute.  Cute is always good.



My SIL sent a box of art supplies from her studio.  I snatched this from the box.  I don't do well with most daily planners.  I keep reminders on my phone. I have a calendar on the fridge near the sink.  But, I do like keeping track of what I need to do for a day.  I usually make notes in there or write down good things or sometimes crud.  Somedays when I feel defeated, I write down all the things I accomplished.  It is good to see that you actually did a lot!




Morning tea.  My old kettle stopped working properly.  It wouldn't shut off.  Then I would remember and burn my hand on the hot handle.  I figured it might be a fire hazard at that point.  This one was cute though.




Library visit.  Where I ran into someone I knew. Which usually happens at the library.  Got invited to eat Tacos :)  My 3 year old emptied the St. Patty's section.


  • The Complete Gnomes
  • Dinosaurs Before Dark (needed to check that out again)
  • Shamrocks, Harps, and Shillelaghs
  • Green
  • Cooking the Irish Way
  • A Fine St. Patrick's Day
  • Sock Yarn One Skein Wonders
  • Sweater Quest:My Year of Knitting Dangerously
  • Sock Yarn Studio
  • Images of Ireland
Then we went to the market where it snowed quite a bit while we were inside and the temp dropped to 5F. Which still freaks me out a bit.  I shouldn't get so worked up.  I always think our van will freeze and it won't start.  

The very messy living room that probably won't get cleaned up tonight.  I like to think of it as my own personal theft system.  

I stole this from my husband's studio.  He collects the strangest little treasures.  I grew up Catholic and did not like images from the Catholic or Orthodox churches for a long time.  But, over the last year, I find them calming.  It is such a different reaction.  Age I guess.  Wisdom.  

This is so yummy.  But, I bought it because I thought the jars would make nice storage and sturdy drinking glasses.  



I bought some more markers since most of ours are shot.  This kid asks me if they are washable. Yes, they are.  I only buy the washable kind now.

::Park Day::








This Day was beautiful.  Our first good snowfall in Montnaa.  we put on al the gear we could muster for an afternoon at the park which led to a long walk around town.  We ended up at the library and local coffee shop for cookies and Dirty Chai.  No one had visited the park, well maybe a few animals and one brave bike rider.  The snow sparkles and is fluffy.
