First February Post

Well finally got over my cold or what ever it was that I had last 2 weeks of January. I spent a long hard week getting to work because of the snow we had last weekend. Our office never closes so on Monday when I got to work I faced a very icy still covered in snow and Ice parking lot. I feel lucky I did not fall and bust my ass. If you are going to have a this office never closes for bad weather policy you could have the parking lots cleaned off. I have knit a few more rows on the baby washcloth, I am still working on the lamb. I need to finish it up and start the stork. The woman at work had her baby last week a little girl she weighed 8 pound and has a head full of hair. She came a few days early, both mom and baby are doing fine. This gives me a few extra days to get the washcloths done. The baby shower will have to wait a couple of weeks until mom feels up to getting out with the baby. I started an afghan crochet I found the pattern at www.projectlinus.org/patterns/ssba.html It is the Sideways Shell Baby Afghan(aka: Newbie Shell Afghan) by Donna Laing. I am using Baby Bee Sweet Delight Wrap the color crayons. It was on clearance at Hobby Lobby. After the foundation row you repeat row 2 until the afghan is 36" then you keep going with the pattern without breaking off the yarn all around the afghan in each space. I hope I can get the edge right. I have work tomorrow and I need to get back to the gym. I have not been the last 2 weeks. I am embarrassed to go back but I will go, it has been a bad keep to my no fried food and pasta week.

I have had 2 colds since moving to Austin. They are no fun. It is hard to know if you have a cold, allergy, or sinus. Either one is yucko!

I am trying to eat healthier too. Do you like Mexican food? I make a lot of burritos and use black beans or different kinds of beans, corn, tomatoes, onions, cheese, and salsa etc. (Whatever I can come up with lol) I like that for a healthy food when studying, etc.

The blanket is going to be precious! I am making some things up for a giveaway on my blog soon. I hope you will enter,if you like anything I have, that is. :)

Big hug my dear,
Michelle
