Sentences

  • It snowed on Christmas. It was pretty, but we couldn’t go to Chattanooga to visit family because it’s a curvy hilly 2 hour drive, and we didn’t want to end up in a ditch. We played games, which was fun, and ate at Ruby Tuesday’s, which was tasty.
  • I’m finished with the front and back of my Ethel Mildred Ferguson sweater. I’m currently working on the first sleeve.
  • I finished the first Garden Gate sock. It’s the length of a regular sock, not knee-high, since I only had one skein of black and one skein of red. I’ve done at least one color work repeat  of the second sock so far.
  • For Christmas I got the book Gifted by Mags Kandis (The name Mags makes me thing of the book Catching Fire). It has a pattern for crocheted coasters and trivets, and I’ve made one of each! This is a big accomplishment for me, because every time I’ve tried to crochet, I haven’t been able to get the hang of it. I’m not certain that I’m doing it right, but they are felted, so it doesn’t really matter. As long as I have a roughly circle shaped pice of wool, I think I’ll be okay. This reminds me of a story that Dad told me about someone in the band Jethro Tull. He played the flute and the band got famous. And then all these professional flute players told him that he was playing the flute wrong, but it doesn’t really matter because he was famous and they weren’t.
  • I’ve been slowly but surely cleaning my room. On Monday Dad helped me rearrange my furniture. I still have some stuff that I don’t really know what to do with right now, but I’ll find a place for it all eventually. My room didn’t get messy over the span of a few weeks (it got messy over the span of a few years) so I can’t really expect myself to have my room completely clean and clutter-free in the span of a few weeks.
  • I went to Goodwill yesterday and bought an orange wool sweater. It’s pretty, but snagged in a few places. After it dries (on the blocking boards that I got for Christmas) I’m going to rip it out. I may dye it, because I don’t really wear orange all that much. Brown might be and easy but pretty color to dye it.
  • I’m going to try to make pretzels tomorrow. I hope that they taste good.
  • I may make cinnamon rolls for New Year’s Eve. But maybe not. I kinda want to make that Brownie like cake from the Cook’s Country cookbook, but that won’t be very easy to bring. Cinnamon rolls, however, will take a long time. I suppose that I could just make cookies, but they’re kinda boring to make.
  • The calico is a big fat bully. No wonder the tabby is a scardy-cat now-a-days.
  • Mom and I just bought some music from Walmart. I like music. It’s always nice to get a new burnt CD to my listening repotoire. I don’t know if I used thar word properly, but I don’t really care.
