I’m way too excited for a proper blog entry. Tomorrow after work I’ll meet up with MonicaPDX to go see The Yarn Harlot! My DH has earned extra Brownie points (meaning I won’t nag him for obsessive computer gaming for at least a week) because he’s taking leave from work to be here to pick up the girls after school so I can go.
This weekend was productive. On Saturday we cleaned and worked on laundry (it’s never really done). That afternoon my nephew stopped by with his new truck. I’m so happy that he was able to get it. He’s a good kid (okay, so technically he’s an adult) and he works very hard. His old truck was a gas guzzler so driving to and from college was eating up all of his money.
Sunday’s marathon began with a 7:00am grocery trip. I was very proud to have finally remembered to bring the re-usable bags purchased at Costco more than a month ago. As it turns out, this is the last time these bags will be used for groceries. They’re ridiculously large and when full they become nigh on impossible to lift. All of the canned goods were in the bottom and not visible in the picture. No doubt they were designed by a man, because only a testosterone-laden brain would think these practical. I can only imagine men in Costco parking lots pretending not to strain as they load these into their cars. Yes, I’ll be knitting some smaller, reusable bags.
End of rant. The above-shown items were transformed into 7 complete dinners which are now frozen for future use. Two batches of cookies and banana bread were baked too, but they never made it to the freezer. These people I live with eat too much. My current non-knitting project is to wean them off of the one gallon a day milk habit. Time to head off to work. Hope y’all enjoy your Monday.
