A Short Friday List

Today, I'm excited because:

1. There's sunshine! I actually like rain and rainy days, and don't really mind gray days (in fact, I've been known to wish for a rainy day now and then). But for some reason the past few weeks of cloudy and sometimes rainy weather have gotten to me. Maybe it's the difference of being a stay-at-home mom. I miss my neighborhood walks! Regardless, it's a treat to see the sunshine today.

2. I'm making an apple skillet cake this weekend. We're celebrating my mother-in-law's birthday, and I'm making an apple cake that is so good! Apples and butter carmelize in the bottom of a cast iron skillet then you pour a spice cake batter on top and bake it all to deliciousness.

3. I ordered a new tea kettle today! I love my electric tea kettle, but the automatic shut off is no longer shutting off, and I'm pretty sure if I don't replace it I'll burn the house down one day.

4. I am so, so close to finishing my scarf project that I started last fall. A friend of mine asked me to knit a Harry Potter Gryffindor scarf for his fiance. I found a really cool, very authentic-looking pattern and I realize I'm a slow knitter, but it's taken me a lot longer then I thought it would to finish. I've got my next project scoped out -- sadly not finishing my current works-in-progress, but starting some Christmas stockings. Since I started knitting I've had a dream of knitting Christmas stockings, and now that there's a little one in the mix, it feels like I should get on that. Maybe I can at least have her stocking done by Christmas!


  1. I'm going to need to see pics of that scarf when you are done!!

  2. Love the idea of Christmas stockings! You'll have to share pictures :)
