s is for
snow : i was sitting in this very spot yesterday when michael said, "i can't believe you are missing it." missing what? snow! i had no idea we even had a chance of getting any yesterday, but oh my, we did! snow here in georgia is quite rare, so we relish every second that we have in it. we did some fast bundling to get outside before it stopped. it was lucy's first snow and she ran back and forth in the yard singing some nonsense with the word snow thrown in quite a bit. and what better treat to have while we are studying the letter s this week?
sloppy joes : yummy yummy homemade sloppy joes. we had some last night for dinner. of course larkin asked, "why do they call them sloppy joes?" good question. anyone know the answer?
second-rate : this is the term used to describe my latest knitting project. i have wanted to try some washcloths for a while and i got inspired by these by dorie but, before you laugh at it, let me say two things. this is the first time i have purled. i know, sad. i have been knitting for over a year now and haven't ventured into purling. and i only have circular needles in the size required for the pattern. note to self: circular needles do not work well for washcloths. it made the stitches and washcloth all wonky. oh well, at least i can purl now.
