Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering Gods grace in its various forms.

You guys have to check this out! It's really funny! My best girlfriend "elfed" me and I nearly fell out of my chair laughing!

Just came home from watching "The Golden Compass." Really good I have to read the books to see what I'm missing in the movie. We saw some good trailers, too. Most of them are from books I've read, too! Looks like 2008 will be a good year in film.

Memere is watching LD this weekend. It's his first long weekend away from home and I'm already missing him. He's had overnights with Memere before but not two nights in a row. I don't know who will fare better, him or me! Probably him. He didn't even bat an eye when hubby and I left tonight.
He was such a good boy today. We had some car problems this morning and I wasn't able to go to my MOPS meeting. I was bummed, we were having our Yankee swap and Christmas party today. By the time my dad figured out what was wrong with Beatrice (my ancient GMC Jimmy) it was too late to stuff LD back into his car seat and truck across town in the snow and ice. Besides LD was happy enough to be playing outside in the snow with Grampa. Except for the stupid Walmart coat. It cut off the circulation to his hands and by the time I got him inside to warm him up he was nearly hysterical. So I proceeded to cut the ends of the sleeves. I'm a terrible seamstress but I managed to get the sleeves sewn back up so that LD could put his hands through and not get the circulation cut off. I left the velcro straps on and finagled it so I could close up the sleeves with them. MUCH much better.

Also, I finally finished the *&%$ed mittens.

And, I'm working on finishing up a baby sweater that I need to get to my friends before their daughter is too big for it.
Finally, my last two projects are another hat for the Chemo Cap Project and a scarf for my mother-in-law. Unfortunately I started both with really cheap yarn. The cotton for the hat isn't dyed very well and the threads have knots in them. If I'm careful, though, the hat will turn out well enough for someone to use as a night cap. The scarf on the other hand, I'm tempted to just frog and put off redoing until I can combine the crappy yarn with something else. I don't know. I do like the fun fur that I put on the first 4"...maybe I should rip it out to there and continue the whole scarf with the crap and fun fur together. Can you say "stole"??

Ciao and Happy Knitting!
