Today, Yesterday, and . . .

Howdy and Hi :)

It's been a busy couple of days.  I was out of the house most of Monday with a ACBC Women's Ministry Meeting and a CGB PTO meeting as well.  Both meetings involved planning events, so they were jam packed with information.  I enjoyed both of them :)  For the PTO I will be volunteering, but not heading up anything.  They are planning on a bowling tournament to be held at the community center (aka bowling alley/bar/pool table place) here in town.  You can see more details on their blog.  For the ACBC thing, I'm actually going to be leading the planning for a Keepers At Home group to start March 7th and be the 1st Wednesday morning for a few months before Summer, and then hopefully continue as park dates this summer and picking back up in the fall.  Contact me if you are in the Belgium, WI area and would like to attend. 

The other day when Seth made his corn cake, Joel baked as well.  He made a Devil's Food Cake from scratch and added a few secret ingredients to it.  The one I remember is Root Beer Extract.  I actually didn't taste anything different.  It was just plain good devil's food cake! :) Yum!  Thanks Joel!

 This morning as I was rushing around trying to get things done before heading off on errands, I saw this chickadee outside.  I love these little birds, but they hardly ever sit still for long so it's very difficult to get a good picture!  This was the best I could take at the time.
 Last night I finished these two hats (below).  They are both crocheted.  The one on the right I had actually started the brim and the colored part quite a while ago.  I had run out of that particular white and couldnt' find anything to finish off the hat with.  I ended up using a white sport weight yarn and just using it doubled.  I don't think the difference is all that noticeable.  I was glad to get one more item finished :)
 One of my errands today was to drop off the red scarves that I had made in January.  I dropped by Aurora hospital in Grafton, WI and dropped these off with the Director of Volunteer Services.  We had a nice little chat as well.  I think she was very pleased with these and said the scarves were timely as they have a few people ready to graduate their cardiac rehab, and so they need these scarves in the next week or so.  :)  I'm so glad they will be used!
So on to another project :)  The Grafton hospital is starting up a chemo wing in the coming months, so they will have an increased need for prayer shawls.  Perhaps I'll try to quilt a few prayer shawls as well as knit or crochet them.  My goal for 2012 is to seriously decrease my stash so it doesn't take up so much room in the bedroom.  Here's hoping anyway!
