Good Monday morning to you!! It is mighty chilly here in So. California today! When I woke up, the rooftops were all white with snow. Okay, not really, it was frost. But it was white. And it was pretty! It rained most of the weekend, and it was so nice. On Saturday I took a class all day at my local knit shop. LOVE this project. I won't reveal what it is until it is done, sometime later in the week. But I am using two yarns together, and I love the bulky texture by doing this!
But I did have the best seat in the house while working (frogging) on my projects yesterday.
The rain came down hard at times this weekend. And as typical Californians who seldom see rain like this, we had to go stand at the front door and watch!
On a side note, I am gearing up for Christmas. I saw this darling bucket the other day at Target. They only had two left. So I snatched one up. I am going to just have a very small tree this year, and it is going inside this.
Lately a lot of bloggers are listing some of their favorite things on holiday posts. I have been trying some of them out for myself. I found this Meyer's Soap in Basil at Target. It was in someone's list of favorite things. Can I just tell you....it smells WONDERFUL!! Not like the herb really, but fresh and clean, and yummy. I bought the pump hand soap and the dish soap. I also discovered this J.R. Watkins soap, in Lemon. I love the old fashioned label on the packaging. It will be the perfect addition to the gifts I am putting together to go with my hand knitted dish cloths.
Another favorite thing here in our house, is Trader Joe's Pumpkin Pancake and Waffle mix. YUM! One night last week, I made breakfast for dinner. Pumpkin waffles, fried eggs, and applewood smoked bacon! Low Cal....NO!!! Delicious...YES!!!!!
For the first 30 years of our marriage, (we just celebrated our 31st in September) Greg never set foot in the kitchen, except to eat what I had prepared. Now, we both cook together often times!! He is a pretty darn good helper too!!! And we have found that we really enjoy cooking together.
