After a long December, I'm finally back to a somewhat normal schedule. My hubby is back to work and my daughter went back to school. So, I now have some time to catch up on all the blogging that I've missed.
December was a crazy busy month over here. I was busy making most all our Christmas gifts. I made lots of reusable grocery bags, knit socks, and a huge Barbie doll house that we made for our girls. (still in shock that we finished it on time) I will be posting about most of these soon. As soon as the new year was over, orders started coming in again on DoA. So, I've been sewing for the past few weeks.
The chilly weather has been making a perfect environment for me to sit and knit while watching it rain out my widows. I love the rain. I know... weird. But, it's true. I love the rain. I told my hubby the other week that all I had been wanting to do is curl up with my knitting, a hot cup of coffee, and warm blanket. He told me to do just that!! So, I've been trying to make some time to sit and knit during the day for at least 30 min. I also knit during the evenings while watching tv. I've been making things like socks for my daughters and hubby. And, working on a scarf for me that I've been really wanting to have. I'm also working on unraveling sweaters to reuse the yarn. And, of course I have a list as loon as my arm of projects that I have been really wanting to work on. Hopefully over the next few months I will carve out some time to do those things.
Photo is from a cabin run that my hubby and I made this last month. (my parents own a cabin near the ocean that we visit as often as we can) On this trip we decided to go for a drive down the Columbia to explore the local towns. This view is from Astoria. Which we completely loved. It was a great day of driving. Perfectly peaceful.
