Last night our neighbors dryer caught on fire. There were 3 fire trucks police and everything on the block. Never leave your dryer run unattended.... especially if you aren't home.Fortunately she was home and got herself and the baby and dog out with no one being harmed. They were already scheduled for a new dryer delivery on Thursday. Scary what can happen when you least expect it.

I found some more information on my broccoli... and tonight we ate it. The kids (well the older two) loved it...it takes like a cross between cauliflower and broccoli.. more like cauliflower. But they like broccoli so that was the seller.

DS1 has to give a report in character of a person who was important in history. He chose Leonardo daVinci... so the question is how to make the beard?? I had made this newsboy cap for him for a music concert he had in KDG. We're attaching long black yarn for long hair but I have to figure the beard out.
So I crocheted a single chain attached to the cap... then attached yarn to the chain that will hang down in front... kind of like this

I hope he's happy with it

I had a nice long nap this afternoon around 4:45 just as it was turning dark. I swear, if I was alone, I'd be in bed by 5 in this season. I feel like a wild animal... ready to retire when it's dark. Kind of depressing! Last night I was sound asleep by 10 and woke up with no alarm this morning around 7. If only I could sleep like that during
the week...

I want to put a lining in the purses before I post them... It's cut, now just to get the ambition to clean the machine and sew the lining...

I am with you on the hibernating thing. I would never leave my house in the winter if I didn't have to go to work.

The fire is frightening. Our neighbors had a fire 4 years ago - you feel so helpless.

I like the outfit! I know what you mean about feeling tired. I'm feeling like a tired old mom. We have had 9 straight days of sun, so I feel more energetic. But prior to that we had about the same of cloudy damp weather and I was really dragging.

The beard looks tip top to me...I'm sure he was very happy with it.

I had to make a white beard a while back and I used quilt batting and glue. It's fun trying to figure out how to go about it!
