Gorgeous Girl was eight weeks old yesterday, and to mark the occasion she slept through the night! It was wonderful, though because she is a grunter, I have to admit that I got up a few times to check that she was ok. We are hoping for a repeat tonight…
Gratuitous cute kid picture:
Sorry, having trouble rotating the pictures tonight. Tilt your head to see the full-impact of that smile.
Sewing-wise I have one set of curtains up, I hate sewing curtains and procrastinate like anything when I have to make them, and the other set nearly ready to hang, just need to sew the tape to the top and add hooks.
On the knitting front I’ve cast on for a new hat with the same yarn as the last hat, pictures when it’s longer than an inch. Tomorrow is my ‘knitting for charity’ day (according to the list I’ve made for myself) and I’m hoping to pick up a project that’s been on the needles since before the Gorgeous Girl was born. Though we are having friends over for lunch (pot-luck so it’s nice and easy, we are providing a lentil salad and zuccini fritters, they’ll bring the rest) and in the evening I’ve got music rehearsal, so I may not get as much done as I’d like.
It’s Carol’s By Candlelight time again, the money raised goes to a local hospice. Unlike last year there is no mass choir, but the music director has asked a small group of us (about 8) to lead the community carol singing and present some items, as a group and also solo. Our first rehearsal is tomorrow night and we find out more information then.
The Secret Knitter tagged me for a shopping meme at the beginning of the month, since we only get paid monthly and do a big shop then I’ve waited to do it.
1. What are you proud of?
Drawing up a menu plan and shopping to the list. We have been having some yummy meals because of the menu 🙂
2. What are you embarrassed by?
Disposable nappies (diapers) – we are using cloth nappies, but put the disposable ones on at night, they don’t get as wet…but I feel like an environmental traitor.
3. What do you think you couldn’t live without?
The first watermelon of the season and fresh strawberries.
4. What did you most enjoy purchasing?
Oceanspray cranberry juice. The store occasionally gets a shipment in, we won’t discuss the fact that it is over 3 times the price of regular fruit juice and so is regulated to a special occasion drink.
5. What were you most tempted by? (This last one may or may not be an actual purchase!)
- Chocolate of the dark variety (bought), magazines of the house & lifestyle and cooking variety (resisted).
