It's been a good weekend.

Both my mom and I worry that my brother doesn't eat right, so I've been doing some cooking and sharing it with him. Today's recipes were awesome: Moroccan Chick Pea Chili; Slow Cooker Angel Chicken; and Toffee Blond Brownies. I'd recommend any and all of them!

Remember that gray sweater that I should have done by now?

Well, Friday I had to unravel the entire sweater (except for the sleeve), and start over again. Knitters know this as "frogging;" because you have to rip-it, rip-it (ribbet, ribbet). I went to my local yarn store to pick up some yarn to use to teach a gal at work how to knit a scarf. Her mom is bravely battling cancer, and her sister will pass soon (she has Down's Syndrome and a lot of health problems), and she needs something to help relieve the stress. Even when I have to frog 3 weeks of work, I still love knitting, and I hope she will too.

Of course, while I was there, I bought some gorgeous yarn for myself too . . .

The weather has been hit or miss all weekend, but we finally got in a long walk today. Here, Sam wonders how she can catch the seagull flying above her.

How was your weekend?

I like that color gray--I'm sure it will turn out well after all the frogging! :)

This weekend I spent cleaning up because I am a frogging slob.

I love the picture of Sam! I had a great weekend--it was warm (got to 50 on Saturday) and sunny. I sat on my back porch in the sun, wearing shorts and a t-shirt, reading.

I don't know much about knitting but I do paint quite a bit and it amazes me how my mind completely shuts out all external noise. I imagine knitting must be like that.
