Ok, where to begin…

I had a nice birthday. Jess was upset when she realized I did not have a birthday cake. So, while I was out running some errands, she did this.

She got out her easy-bake oven and made me a birthday cake.  How sweet is that?

The Braille challenge was fun. Jess was overwhelmed at the beginning of the testing, and completely broke down. Sometimes she has trouble adjusting to new situations. She ended up doing maybe half of the test, and did surprisingly well. Most importantly, after she calmed down, she had a lot of fun.

Sickness and weather has helped me consistently ignore my blog. My apologies.

Now some knitting.

Yarn: Rowan Pure wool 4 ply
Pattern: Mushroom pulse warmers over at Hello Yarn
Note: I used a larger needle that recommended, and I knit both at the same time in one big round.


Yarn: Cascade Eco wool
Pattern: Sideways Grande Cloche in Boutique Knits
Notes: This hat is far too tall for my head. It's going to be a gift.


Yarn: Wool-ease
Pattern: None.  Inspired by two baby sweaters.
Notes: Mara's birthday gift. Now I just need to send it.

Now a pretty snow shot of the house.

    Wow, is Jess ever getting big!
    Sometime I’ll have to tell you about student teaching from hell. Seriously, the classroom teacher was Hitler.
    IUSB is giving me a break before finding a new teacher for me.

    Pretty house picture. It almost makes me miss the snow.

    Happy Belated Birthday! An easy bake cake is still a cake. LOL. Nice going, Jess. 🙂
    Love the pulse warmers. Is that snow gone yet?

    Did I ever tell you that my brother, Craig, BEGGED (repeatedly) for an Easy Bake Oven when he was growing up? He is going to be so jealous that Jess has one. 🙂
    OK Your house looks so much better covered in snow than all the crap here in Iowa.
    Now I’m jealous…
