Congrats to Karyn, our first winner of 2013! Anyone else besides me forget it was the last night of the month? ;)

Here's your cool blinkie, Karyn. (If you're still having issues setting your preferences, send me a private message (or email becca_carter@yahoo.ca) and I'll see if I can walk you through it. I'm finally error-free on that side of things, so I want to help everyone out if they need it!)

Now on to February! Whoever posts last before midnight Eastern on the 28th will be our next winner!

Semi-busy today. Out of the house all morning, first with storytime at Tim's class and then off to preschool, with a quick stop at the grocery store afterwards and also the library! I even checked at the health food store for lactose-free chocolate, but they still don't have it and gave no indication of when they might, so I'll remember to check with the store in my hometown when I'm there next. (I buy combinations of chocolate and PB, chocolate and caramel or chocolate and coconut when I see my favourite brands, but I really do need to supplement with lactase pills, so no lactose in the treat would be handy.)

Other than dishes and laundry, I feel like I've done nothing for chores today. Ah well, sometimes a rest is what is needed! I missed some early-morning sleep after the smoke alarm chirped for battery replacement and I'm already feeling less energetic this week, anyway, so I'll give myself a little break, though not the point of having the house fall apart around me. ;) ;)

I did get some knitting done while at preschool (playgroup-style this week since the parenting-group facilitator was sick) and have had time to catch up on Bible studies, so this is just a different kind of productive day, I guess. :)

A nice, quiet day here. Had to zip out to Wal-Mart for pain reliever and picked up knitting needles while I was there, but I resisted buying more yarn until I knew what kind I wanted for specific projects. (Until I'm familiar with types of yarn and such, it makes sense not to build up an inventory.) At home again, I did some online catch-up while watching shows from the PVR and Netflix. Nothing exciting to report, but I needed this kind of day!

It has been a crazy busy week here! We are working at the house we pray to rent/sell this spring. Trying to get it totally cleaned out soon so it can be painted and get new flooring. We are putting in a tile floor this week! Looks great so far. I am falling behind on things here at home...like laundry.....but I am sure I will be able to catch up here on Saturday! Hope you are having a wonderful day!!!

I don't know if I mentioned it here already, but I had grabbed double-pointed needles since I didn't know what I was doing when I wanted to start knitting. I had a few stitches drop off the bottom of a needle yesterday, so I knew it was time to switch to regular needles! I went with bamboo again, though there weren't a lot of choices in size. (Might need an online source for knitting supplies if we just don't get enough selection here in the boonies. ;) )

Hooray for getting work done on the potential rental! I hope the cleaning catch-up at home doesn't take too long and you have a relaxing weekend otherwise!

I love my bamboo needles. I purchased a set of Clover bamboo knitting needles a long time ago and the more I use them, the smoother the bamboo becomes. Hope you are able to find exactly what you are looking for!
