  1. Sounds like a busy week ahead, hope you enjoy it!

  2. Many wonderful things, but as I read through, what caught my eye was "as I look around - mud." Hahaha, when my kids were little, I said I wanted my walls the color of dirt so when they were "dirty" nobody could tell:)

  3. Lovely crocheting! That looks like a good cozy -- perfect for winter. I love that you've scheduled breakfast for dinner. Always a winning choice.

  4. Thanks for the recommendations. I will check out A Crafty Killing and A Royal Winter. Have a great week!

  5. I like the photo of the yarn in the basket, makes me think of a bright and cheerful rainbow. Hope you have a great week!

  6. That books sounds very interesting - is it the first in the series?


  7. What a beautiful crochet project you have! A Crafty Killing? I may have to pick that one up myself. Have a wonderful week.

  8. Love your dinners for the week.

    Love the cozy.

    Have a wonderful week.

  9. Beautiful crochet, I have never done a triple crochet. I like the double one though, it is fun to do. Nice to see someone else watched the inauguration, it made me sad to see so many protestors with the pink hats.

  10. I could not help but chuckle at your around the house answer... "mud" : ) I like the photo of all that yarn, such pretty colors! Have a great week.

  11. I love the open design of the square. :) Nice work. Good luck on the week ahead.
