The List

Let's check the status of my to-do list, shall we?

  • Complete the Honey Cowl
  • Finish painting the kitchen
  • Watch the rest of season 2 of The Good Wife
  • Finish one of the baby sweaters that I have on the needles
  • Get my hair cut
  • Enjoy the beach
  • Work on my gifted class assignment


So as usual, I didn't get as much done as I had planned, but that's okay.

Here I am with the haircut and the cowl, and the unfinished kitchen in the background.

And although I didn't finish the baby sweater, I have made good progress on it. I finished the body and I'm working on the button band, so it's almost done.



Melissa posted this picture of the two of us on my Facebook page this week. This was taken at Natural Bridge when she was either three or four years old, which would mean I was thirty-two or thirty-three. Isn't she adorable? I love her little hand on my leg. The time has definitely flown by.


Hard to believe we were this young, not so very long ago.



  1. At least you got some of your list done. Your new haircut looks great and so does the cowl, very cute picture of the two of you. Hope you are having a great day,

    1. Thanks! And you're right, I got some good stuff done!

  2. Your haircut is fabulous. And the photo is so touching. I almost cry when I see photos of my own kids when they were little. Especially with sons, one loses the physical closeness quite early on.

    1. Liz, I'm the same way. Sometimes I'd rather not see the photos, they make me grieve for those times somehow. My husband doesn't seem to understand that feeling, so thank you for sharing.

  3. Cute picture of you and Melissa! Oh...and great cowl to emphasize your cute haircut.

    1. I don't think my haircuts have changed much; wish I could say the same about my weight and wrinkles, haha
