Memory Lane

When I was in second grade, we would line dance our hearts out to this song during P.E. And I loved it.

And I thought Leroy Brown was scary and kinda awesome.

weekend off

i don't care for summer at all, but this song and video make me wish it was.

but while we're stuck in winter, i suppose i'll keep warm in this


November was National Knit a Sweater Month (known to the knitting world as NaKniSweMo) and I decided to tackle the Acer Sweater. It knit up fairly quickly, which was good cause I still have Christmas gifts to turn my attention to.

There's nothing like a good, red wool cardigan.

Holiday Cookies, part 1 (hopefully more parts to come)

Last Monday, after weeks of dreaming about crunchy peppermint and chocolate, I got off my butt and made some peppermint bark chocolate cookies.

Good recipe, though I used Starlight round peppermints instead of candy canes and I probably scared my downstairs neighbor smashing those things with a rolling pin. And one extra note, the butter should be room temperature. Yum!
