Yes, our big boy is eight years old today. Oh, that reminds me, I kept meaning to post a link to an entry about Peaches, who is 12. What a doll! But back to Apollo … for his birthday, I got him a new squeaky crocodile:
Uh oh – insert dramatic, villain music here …
Rest assured that karma came and bit Sabrina in the ass. While she was killing his new toy, Apollo and I adjourned to the kitchen and I gave him a nice big handful of roast chicken meat. Heh.
So we had a quiet weekend around the house. We had some snow, just barely enough so the big fella could get out the new snowblower and give it a try:
As if he needed any further excuse to play, I directed him to the backyard to start setting the winter race track for the poopers:
We were happy to stick close to home. We went out to run a few errands on Saturday afternoon, but avoided the crazy shoppers in the stores.
Right. So there was some knitting over the weekend. I finished a very cute hat for myself:
(and isn’t that a nice, bitchy look on my face!)
Project deets and more photos on my Rav page.
I also knit another project, I’ll put a Rav link here so that the recipient won’t see it on the blog. I’m pretty happy with how that item turned out.
Hmm, what else. Oh, I made a nice chicken chow mein for supper last night. I tried a different recipe than my usual; this one from Canadian Living. Of course they add broccoli to make it more nutritious. It was very good!
I’m going to finish some chores around the house now, then mix up some chocolate chip cookie dough (to be chilled and baked off tomorrow), and I want to try a new scone recipe Monica found – cranberries!
