Okay…because I have huge fat needles tucked away in my closet plus yarn for two vests and one really chunky scarf…and a sweater…I read a book about knitting over the week end…not a how to knit book but a book about a girl…Sybs…her dog Basil…her wedding where…her twin sister leaves with her fiancé. Sybs and Basil escape to a small country town…Tindledale…where everyone knows everyone as well as their issues…oh my this book was so much fun! And so good for me because I am not supposed to be worrying about anything to do with my upcoming blood test but I worry…I really worry a lot.
Anyway…our new flannel sheets came from Garnet Hill…it’s our first time sleeping on flannel and the four of us had a warm and cuddly night! Den washed them on Sunday and they were on our bed Sunday night! Yummy! Den has some pretty weird idiosyncrasies when it comes to beds. He has to make our bed…he hates my way…heeheehee…snicker snicker…The pillowcases all have to be king…and we each have 4 pillows. And everything has to be tucked in. Den is now in love with sheets from Garnet Hill…that’s the only place for us for sheets from now on! Do you all wash sheets before putting them on your bed? Just wondering…
We were very hungry for Christmas cookies just like the kind we have been buying from Weggieman’s but I wanted a slice and bake recipe that I could ice with buttercream icing. I wasn’t in a roll out cookie kind of mood. After tons of googling and pinteresting…I found both! Den will testify to their crunchy outside but soft inside and yummy icing! These are my prototype…I will perfect them and make them into little snowman faces!
Books…what I should be here for…I have some new ones to choose from this week but I have no idea what I am in the mood for…I kind of want another English country knitting book with lots of tea and puppies and yarn! But I have whittled my choices down to these…for now! The top row of books are from lovely publishers through NetGalley…the rest of my lovely books are from lovely publishers through Edelweiss…I do so love Edelweiss! Once you get used to it…it is easy and fun!
I bought my little knitting book myself!
I am off to the basement to walk on my treadmill and pull up one more Christmas box and tuck away those darn pumpkins! We had an old wooden box filled with about a million pennies…they spilled onto the cold basement floor and neither Den nor I want to pick them up…oh my!
Have a good day!
