In my family we tend to not just have a birthday celebration on only one day, but spread it over a few. I told the story of the celebration of Bill's birthday on the day before. On his birthday he took the day off. I had to go to work.
After I was done with work I had to buy a few things to make for his dinner. I got him some cheese filed pretzel bites as an appetizer. For dinner I made him some hot Italian sausages and garlic sauteed broccolini. We also had a bunch of champagne. Between the two of us we went through about 2 bottles. You can probably tell there was not much crafting going on at that point.
Today I had the day off so I got more stuff done. Both in crafting and with house things. I got the stuff to make a rice dish based on a kale and potato soup I saw on the Cooking Channel the other day. It turned out good enough, but I think I know a few tweeks to make it even better.
When I was at work on Monday I tried to get a picture of the scarf I mentioned before. I'm not sure where Dawn put it, but I could not find it. I have started my own in manly variegated yarn. The pattern suggests it, but I think I like it a little bit better on a more solid yarn. Like with most variegated yarns, any complicated pattern becomes a little lost. I also made this one a bit wider than the pattern tells you to. I think it will cover a more manly neck that way.
I didn't mention this before, but I have a New Year's resolution this year. One year I had the resolution to say 'yes' to more things. That was fun since I went out with friends more and such. This year I said that I would try and do something nice for myself everyday. I don't mean that it always has to be something big, you do not need to fear for my wallet any more than you already do. For a few days I have been doing the Dove 7 Day Challenge. I have also taken the time one day to put on some make-up so I feel super fancy that day.
I know they are just little things and some of them are things people already do everyday. I suggest to anyone to try this out. Make something yummy for dinner, or wear a very special perfume. Even little things everyday can make you feel more special.
