Joining fellow knitters and crocheters for Yarn Along.
I had been hoping to give you a ta-dah!-post instead of a little glimpse as to what I have on my hook at the moment. I'll be done soon though and then this little gift can be given to a very special little girl who is being very patient with her aunt.
As for reading, well, I haven't really been reading much. I have tried quickly grabbing something at the library that I think I will like, but no, no luck. I have, however, been doing some writing. I'm re-writing my recipe collection into a new book. The old one fell apart and the fat stains and smudges on its pages stopped being charming quite some time ago. I'm sure there is some smart online site where I could store my recipes, but I like to do things old-school. I'm also trying to take time to write into my kids journals. I have one for Sebastián and one for Esther, and I like to jot down funny things they've said or done - anything memorable really - so that this noodlehead mother of theirs will remember all those quirky, funny and most adorable things that these kids come up with. I don't know about you but my memory is horrible, its so easy to forget those small things and just remember the big stuff. I don't want to forget that Esther likes to pull up her shirt, points at her belly button and says "eye", or that she has said her first words in english - SIT DOWN! Read that with an Arnold Schwarzennegar voice, we say it as a joke to her brother and it stuck. Or the funny (to us) fashion choices Sebastián makes. He says he's the most good looking boy at daycare, sporting a worn out vest, long johns and a baseball cap. And if I actually do get him to wear a pair of pants, he'll tuck the legs into his socks - always. I love that kid to bits, I really do. Both of them!
