It's a cloudy, rainy day at the beach. Besides heading outside for a couple of short walks, we're snugged into the house for the day.

I baked an awesome Zucchini Bread this morning from the Magnolia Cookbook, and I've got the slow cooker loaded up with Angel Chicken - chicken breasts and sliced mushrooms, with a sauce made from butter, a packet of dry italian dressing mix, condensed golden mushroom soup, white wine and chive cream cheese. I have the feeling this may turn out to be my new favorite slow cooker recipe if it turns out as yummy as I think it will.

I've also been spending quite a bit of time updating my notebook on Ravelry.com. Ravelry is an onsite community for knitters and crocheters, and is the most amazing website I've ever seen. It provides a place for crafters to share their projects and knowledge, and provides a framework for each knitter to organize his or her knitting projects. It allows you to list, with photos, your "stash" of yarns, projects in progress, and future projects. It also provides tools for listing and organizing your needles and knitting magazines and books. If you're looking for a project for any given yarn, you can review the projects posted by other knitters.

Because of an explosion in popularity, you have to get on a waiting list, and wait to be invited to join. This takes about 10 days, but is well worth the wait. I Heart Ravelry!

Isn't Ravelry great? I describe it to people as a myspace for knitters, only with much better navigation.

Hannah looks like she's recovered nicely from her surgery.
