We ARE Amused.....

I'm such a bad girl.... I cast on Amused yesterday. I had an additional skein of my sweater yarn that was just snoozing, so I thought I try it out and see if I liked the pattern before I frog the cardigan in the making. I finished stage one yesterday, although it doesn't look like much. Today I "Continue Yoke Shaping". We'll see how far it goes.

Today is Eldest Granddaughter's last day of school in 2008. It's going to be a long two weeks. This origami wreath is one of our intended projects. A trip to the craft store for paper is in my near future.

The new-to-me TV doesn't have a remote. I always go to sleep with the TV on, either listening to an audio book on the DVD player, or watching TV. The sleep timer on the other TV was a god send to me. So, in order to keep this part of my life going, I bought a digital timer for $10 at Home Depot. Set it up last night and now it turns my TV off at 11 pm and turns the power to it back on at 6 am. Life is good.

The weather is turning cold. We had a frost and freeze warning last night. It's 35 at 7:17 am so I'm guessing it did freeze last night. It's the second time all winter we've had the heat on.

  1. Amused looks like a great sweater -- it caught my eye, too.

  2. Lizzie, you can purchase a "universal" remote for just a few dollars. I have one.

    Yes, kids get antsy after a week of no school so hope things go smoothly for you.
