This is a 5 lbs. tin of Danish butter cookies! I’m thinking this should last me most of the winter. I’m trying to cut back on my sweets, but I like a cup of tea and something sweet in the evening. The plan is to have my tea with one or two of these cookies at night. But oh my goodness! A 5 lb. tin! It’s huge... everything at Costco is huge.
Here is a photo of the dishcloth I made Friday night, along with the pattern name for you. It’s free on ravelry and crochets up very, very quickly. I think I made this in about half an hour. I used Hobby Lobby’s “I love this cotton.” And speaking of yarn, I stopped at Michael’s this morning and their yarn is buy two skeins get one free right now, just in case any of you are interested.
Thank you all so much for the sweet comments on yesterday‘s post. I think my Mom and Dad looked very nice in both photos. It was wonderful to be able to wear her wedding dress. They were married in 1944 and we were married in 1978. The dress was in remarkably good condition, although the veil had pretty much disintegrated so I had to buy a new veil.
Alex had a wonderful time in London. I think he’s a pretty handsome young man too. He will be 30 years old in December! Where does the time go? He FaceTimed me this morning for a couple of hours before he went to the airport. I really feel blessed that he includes us in his life so much. Mandy called me twice this morning too! Although our kids live far away, it’s nice that they still want to talk to us and keep us involved in their lives. Mandy had lunch today at the Olive Garden with Dennis‘s mom, his sister Karen, his niece and Karen’s grand babies. I just love that she has family living so close to do things with. And with Brad’s family there too, they keep pretty busy. Quite a change from when they were living in Maryland and had no family at all.
I just downloaded the latest square for the blanket KAL a few minutes ago. I’m going to sit down this afternoon and start knitting on that. I hope you all have a wonderful Monday.
