Where to start?
How about with my next crochet project?
I saw this pattern for crocheted socks on Instagram yesterday and loooove them, so I went and bought the pattern HERE. Then we went to town to the fancy yarn store and I got the above yarn to make them. I didn't like any of the yarns at Walmart for this particular project. I'll use an off-white yarn for the lace. I was going to start them last night while watching the Cubs, but I never did. I just sat there thinking about it. It looks like a great pattern with pictures and plenty of instructions. Of course you'll see them when I'm finished.
While we were out, I got these curlers at Walmart.
My hair has grown like wildfire since we moved up here.
I cut 6-7 inches off last winter and it's all grown back, if not more.
There are only 6 curlers in each package for a little less than $10. I let my hair air-dry almost completely then put one curler on each side of my head hair, put the rest up in a ponytail on top of my head and split my ponytail into four parts for the last four curlers. I sprayed each piece of hair with hairspray before winding the it around the curler. Then I left them in all night. I do like them, so I'll probably go back and get another package.
This is a really messy version of what my hair looked like this morning after I took the curlers out and stuck half of it up into a big barrette. I was afraid if I brushed it the curls would turn into fuzzy waves, so I just stuck it up without brushing it. Now that I know I like the way the curls look, I'm going to go back and get another package. I think I need more than six. I'll try to do a better job with it next time and make it neater to show you. Anyway, I had fun playing with my hair.
Here are the caffeinated breakfast bars I was telling you about.
I had one this morning and this flavor was great!
They also have chocolate peanut butter, chocolate caramel, and cinnamon roll. I saw these coconut ones way in the back at the last second and grabbed them. I love my coconut!
FYI...1 bar = 1/2 cup of coffee (So they say on the box.)
I also got these and ate one yesterday.
REALLY freakin' good!
Don't kid yourself...I'm sure it's no better for you than a cookie, but it's a good cookie!
I wanted to buy these flowers, but I settled for a picture of them instead.
Now...on to the cooking!
Remember the ground beef stir-fry I was going to make?
I used these noodles instead of the Udon called for in the recipe.
It's one of my favorite pastas aside from angel hair.
It was fabulous and I'll definitely make it again.
Recipe is HERE if you missed it.
I've made a lot of her recipes and bought her cookbook recently.
I voted. You should too.
It's vote-by-mail-only here in Washington.
No standing in line.
Do you like my leggings?
When Ken saw me he said, "It looks like someone attacked you with a stencil kit at Hobby Lobby!" Thank you, dear. He's so sweet.
Yes, I share.
Do you think that's gross? I don't.
I think he likes it. What do you think?
Do you know what you do when you see Fletch with this look on his face?
STOP MAKING EYE CONTACT IMMEDIATELY!
He's about to eat your face. Hard.
Fetchie is sweet, but he's also got a bad case of the crazies.
I've learned how to deal with him and his little "ticks."
That's what happens when you leave a puppy in a kennel the first four months of his life and don't interact with him. He's a little emotionally retarded. (I didn't do that. Someone else did.)
Okay, enough dog.
This was my house yesterday. The mountains behind it were mostly covered by clouds. Lordie, I love autumn!
Just a random picture I found in my "Crochet" file on my computer.
Hee-hee. A Chicken.
