As I haven't found time to blog as regularly as I'd like to, we're just going to do one big update :o)

Knitting - Almost added a square to Miss Ladybug's blanket, but more importantly managed not to start a new project (it was a close thing, I had actually given in and if the store I was at had the materials I needed I would have a new project going right now).  I have also started to feel slightly panicky about the prospect of trying to finish so many projects before starting baby-related projects for my 2 expecting friends.  I'm knitting at such a depressingly slow rate I'll be lucky if I'm allowed to start said baby-related projects before the children are in kindergarten!  I've decided to compromise;  If I can get all the projects, for which the knitting part is completed, finished (with the exception of blocking) then I'll be allowed to start ONE new project.  The reason I'm excluding the blocking part of finishing for this compromise is I don't really have a good place to block my knitting at the moment.

Miss Ladybug - As I'm typing this I realize I forgot to give Miss Ladybug today's 2nd dose of medicine and she's asleep :o/  She really does not like it and makes the funniest faces when I give it to her!  Makes me feel so bad for thinking her reaction is cute.  However it does seem to be helping a bit.  Not much yet, but I'm hoping that the longer she's on it the better it'll get....we'll see :o)

Trip - Miss Ladybug, Mum, two of my siblings, and of course yours truly, all went for an overnight camping (in cabins) reunion this weekend.  It was the first time I had gone anywhere with Miss Ladybug for more than a few hours.  I was amazed at how much baggage is required for such a little person!  It was the reunion for my Grandmother's side of the family so it was way extended familyness.  Not many people I knew but we had a nice time and my little sis and bro seemed to enjoy themselves.

Book - Today I started reading a book I got at a library sale awhile ago.  It's called 'Candyfreak' by: Steve Almond.  It's soo good!  I'm nearly finished with it, I can't put it down!  The author talks about his relationship with candy and it makes me laugh out loud because so many times he is totally describing me!  He also goes on a trip to tour the factories of a few regional brand candy bars; one of the factories he visits is where the 'Idaho Spud' is made (at least I think that's what it's called....can't remember for sure off the top of my head).  I now have the urge to try this candy bar.  I've seen it around a few places but never really felt compelled to try it.  Not sure I can have it right now as dairy is still a no-no for me but as soon as I can I'm going to give it a try :o)

No pictures right now because it's very late and I haven't taken any in preparation for this post.  I'll try to post some in the morning (aka, later today) but no promises.


  1. Idaho Spud - I haven't had one of those in a long time. yum!

  2. Sounds like you've been busy! p.s. I really like the books that you are reading!
