Happy is she who knits

I have to hope you didn't come here for the knitting pictures. I could give them to you, but they are unfinished projects and not that interesting to show off. Having unfinished socks going did not stop me from going to my local yarn store today. I went in search of a certain yarn for a scarf project. They lead me astray by showing me the perfet yarn for a hat. And I bought it. Anybody else got ADD and the attention span of a gnat when it comes to crafting? How that happened to me, I'll never know! But I have to finish the sock before I start the hat, so my knitting will all get going again.

It all started with these cookies this week. I made five dozen Snickerdoodles. I fell like if it is worth doing, it is worth doing big, so most of my cookie recipes I make in triplicate. I kid you not. We gave some away and the kids ate most of them. Look what's left, only five.

So yesterday I made Apple Pie. Yeah. It's one of those frozen ones, but I had to thaw the Dutch Crumb Topping and add it all by myself.

S we ate almost half a pie last night. But tomorrow we are celebrating Noah's birthday and a bunch of 12 year old boys are coming over. That calls for cake. Chocolate Cake. Homemade. MmmmmGood.

So if you don't hear from me this weekend, I'll be here, just sleeping off the sugar coma.

glad to hear that the boys are loving the pigs...and so very glad to hear straight from Scott's mouth that he's not hating my guts for fulfilling Noah's dream of guinea pig ownership. at the very least, guinea pig poo is solid... ;)

OK, so I'll be bringing Collin tomorrow to the party... am hoping some of that cake is left....

Snickerdoodles is one of my favorites, Rebecca used to make them when she was at home. I have been making candies and fudges this week. The pie looks delicious too. I stocked my freezer yesterday from Kroger. They had Marie Calendar pies for $3.99. I can't bake them for that (and won't even attempt to.) I hope the party is a sucess.

Save a slice of the chocolate cake for me!

Maybe some snickerdoodles too. Murphy will take a helping as well.
