When the weather looks like this (beautiful to me but ugly to the ones who shovel!):
Well, then Robin must work from home and join the homeschoolers at the table (the good):
And there is no where to go so mom has time to knit (the VERY good!!). Now these two pics are actually what I accomplished over the weekend...though I have started another today. Anywho, the first is a lighthouse and the second is the state of Maine with the lettering "ME" on the side. (You can find these and other great free patterns at Knitting Nonsense
Now here's the ugly! I had time to bake so seeing as we are having company tomorrow night, I decided to have choc. chip cookies as sandwiches with ice cream in the middle. Well, let's just say that I will likely serve something else for dessert! First I was reading the wrong recipe as there are 3 are on the bag so I used too much sugar. Then I don't know what else happened except I do think I overbeat them. I had a horrible time getting them off my well seasoned stones. But, the kids are very glad to eat my "mistakes!"
I do like to show my failures as well as my successes. Too often young homemakers are discouraged because they see THEIR failures but no one else's failures. But isn't life about both? Failures like a ruined cookie or a crooked sewn seam or a few rows of knitting that must be torn out are things I try not to get too upset over. It is all a part of the process. It's best to learn and move on!! :)
