I have a question for all of you. Has anyone ever made this blanket? It’s called “mystical lanterns” and I have seen the pattern on ravelry but I would like to know if it’s available within the US. Isn’t it beautiful? I thought it would be a great way to use up scraps.
I completely forgot yesterday was Thursday. I mean I seriously completely spaced off that the day was Thursday. How do you do that? I forgot the ladies luncheon at church. Luckily I didn’t have any leadership roles in that, I was just going to take food and eat. :-). I also forgot to print out the new square for the “12 blocks of Christmas KAL”. I printed it late last night and I am going to start it this afternoon. Sometimes I think there’s something seriously wrong with me.
Especially when I do something like this.
That is a cookie sheet full of Dennis’s favorite cookies that were destined to be iced sugar cookies. I’m not doing any other baking to speak of this Christmas, so I thought I could at least bake him some sugar cookies. I mixed up the dough this morning and put it in the refrigerator for it’s two hours of cooling. The first two sheets came out of the oven just fine. But when I took the third sheet out I dropped it and this was the result. Of course they were the prettiest cookies too! No chopped off arms or legs on the gingerbread man. Isn’t that always the way? Just keeping it real for all of you. There is no perfection at this house. Ha!
Since I had flour all over the place anyway, I made some homemade noodles and we’ll have chicken and noodles for dinner tonight. Also at Dennis’s request. My back has about had it though, so I’ll be down for the rest of the afternoon.
I’ll leave you with a picture of the little wall by our front door.
And this is the little table directly underneath the above picture.
The predicted snow has not materialized here yet. I think we’re just a little bit to warm as it’s 36F. Less than 10 miles west of Spokane on the High Plains it’s been snowing for hours. You don’t find me complaining though. Ha ha! I hope you’re all having a wonderful Friday afternoon.
“The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him.” John 1:9-10
Edited to add, I am having a terrible time posting comments on some of your blogs. Many, I have resorted to commenting anonymously and just signing my name, but others won’t let me comment at all. One that comes to mind right now is Regina‘s blog and I don’t have her email address to let her know. I don’t know why this is happening, but I have read of other bloggers who are having the exact same issue and it seems to have something to do with blogger and Google. I will keep trying my best, but if I usually comment and I haven’t for a week or two, please send me a quick email and I will comment to you through email. I’m still reading all of your blogs, I just can’t let you know it if I don’t have an email address.
