Weekend Accomplishments

This weekend has certainly not been what I'd hoped. Today the Ravens play, so I'll watch that, and I have a candle party to attend at three. Hopefully that will provide a needed break. In spite of my Elliott-centric life the last few days, I have done a few things to be proud of.

Made my first turkey. It was a turkey roast (no bones) and more my size than standard, but it turned out yummy.

Made my first green bean casserole. I followed Jill's mom's suggestion, and made it with fresh green beans rather than canned or frozen and it turned out delicious.

Made headway on my blanket. I laid it out on the bed so that you can see the width. I've done a lot, but there's plenty to go. I also incorporated the double crochet stitch I learned yesterday into the green section. I'm not sure how kosher it is to switch up stitches on one project, but it's good practice. The double crochet stitch takes a long, long time though.

On the docket for today:

- continue to not miss D - ugh
- take care of Elliott - in progress
- finish calendar page so I can scan it at work tomorrow - Marie, I'll scan it Tuesday... sorry.
- crochet - in progress
- order Xmas gifts online - done
- buy candles at the party - done
