Just had a little chin wag with Ann. Any one of those bloggers she emailed–who considered coming for the "home made coffee cake"–don’t bother! She bought a cheese cake from Costco! The horror. I, on the other hand, am cooling the Chocolate Peanut Butter cookies that I made from scratch just before.
I am not exactly sure what went wrong with the melted chocolate on top…a little lumpy. I have done better in the past. Hopefully they taste better than they look.
I have gotten back to some of the pulse warmers I planned to knit. They are good inbetween knitting. Beads are a lot of fun to buy. eBay is my favorite source. I really like the Miyuki beads as they are pretty uniform in size. It can be a challenge pairing up the right color bead with yarn. I am by no means a color natural. I am not 100% sure about this latest pulsewarmer. It may be to light a combo but it kind of reminds me of Wedgewood. What do you think? Caryn’s pattern is easy to do and the cluster of beads in the checkerboard pattern shows them off a bit more.
We had Owen’s meeting for school next year. He will remain at his current placement and continue to receive home teaching over the summer. While the district was happy with his academic progress, they are rightfully concerned about his maladaptive behaviors. Lately, elopement–or running away/escaping–has been a bit of an issue. Some new bolts has fixed that temporarily. Why is itOwen can open any lock but not button his pants? I would love to see him go back to district some day…maybe by 6. I don’t know.
A question…the cat, Scooby, has been meowing about 2 minutes before Kevin’s alarm clock goes off to be fed. We leave dry down for him. He used to meow right after the alarm clock but now, 4:58am he is at it. I want to shoot him with water. Kevin thinks it is easier to feed him. Monday through Friday maybe. Saturday and Sunday–no! Anyone else have a cat that is an alarm clock?
