Menu for 1/27/14-2/2/14

What does a mom do during nap time when the house is clean and dinner is already in the works? Besides blogging, of course.

This mom knits. I know it's become popular among the younger crowd lately, but I think I may have been ahead of the trend. I learned to knit when I was in 5th grade. That would have made me 10 or 11 years old. Oh, dear Lord that makes me feel old; it was 18 years ago!

My cousin and I have both been working on hats and scarves (crocheting) for the church. They will be donated to children in Appalachia who need warm clothes for the winter. I can usually knit fairly quickly when I'm in a time crunch, but that generally means staying up late at night and/or skipping chores. I do have a larger project in progress right now that is a toddler blanket. No, it isn't for Bailey.

Our neighbors, probably one of the sweetest families I've ever met, are expecting another boy in about a month. They have a 7 year old girl and 6 year old twins, a boy and a girl. I'm so excited for them! I just love babies. I just thought it would be lovely for the new little one to have something hand made just for him. Of course when I started it I didn't know if they were having a boy or a girl so I had to make something gender neutral.

I hate that gender neutral in baby stuff is always pale yellow and green. I looked through all of the baby yarn and had almost settled on a cream and green when I spied a beautiful golden-yellow yarn. It happened to be on the shelf right next to a gorgeous chestnut brown and they just looked magnificent together! So golden-yellow and chestnut brown it is, and I must say, it looks fabulous. My neighbor even said it matched the bedding they found for the crib, a zoo pattern. The only problem is I've only half finished it so I have to get my rear in gear and crank it out before he arrives!

So that's what I'll be doing during nap time this week, and here is what we will be eating!
