After posting a poem about a chicken and then disappearing for 2 days, I figured I'd better say "hi" and let you know that I wasn't committed (yet) or anything!

Been very busy knitting socks and prepping for hubby's upcoming return and our vacation. Tonight is the kids' "talent show" their music teachers put on for all the students. It's really just all the kids getting to perform in front of people, and the guests are charged an "admission" of donated goods for the local food bank!

As long as the camera battery cooperates, I'll have "talent" show footage later this weekend! I'll probably be MIA again tomorrow as I have a lot of projects that need finishing around here. Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!


  1. Good to hear all is well. I'm betting the two little guys are pretty excited about the school program tonight. Have fun and we'll look forward to pictures soon!

    Please send me some of your "get things done way ahead of time" enthusiasm. It's always my goal, but I fall short so often. :o(

  2. There is nothing more precious than those shows your kids put on! I hope the camera battery cooperates.

    I'm almost finished me hat and I found someone who knows how to knit socks so I'll be moving on to socks next. Can't wait!

  3. Oh, I love those talent shows. You never know what you're going to get.
    Have a great weekend.

  4. So much fun! The boy had a "Barn Dance" the other day and I got to square dance with him. It just made me giggle. He took it so seriously and I was pretty impressed all of those first graders remembered the steps, but they did all have red dots on their right hands. :)

  5. Mama Pea, I'm SO BEHIND! Probably because I learned to knit socks a little late in the game, but I'm obsessed now. Note to self: start in the summer next year!

    Sparkless, socks are so fun, you will love it once you "get the hang of it"!

    Judy, that was the truth! It was fun AND funny tonight!

    Ribbit, that sounds fun!

    @everyone... I am sooooo lucky - my camera battery died right at the end, so I didn't get the photo I wanted of the kids with their teacher at the end, but I got all the good stuff! (I hope... I haven't actually downloaded it all yet!) Will update in a day or so!

  6. Those talent shows are always so cute. Our girls did ballet for a while and watching them perform was adorable.
    Yes, knitting socks it totally addictive! I started out a few years ago and haven't been able to stop. Now I'm into trying different patterns for them...
    Hope it's not that much longer until your hubby comes home. The last few weeks/days were always the hardest...

  7. Hi Erin! I love the (new?) pics on the side of your blog! You must be getting so excited!! I'm excited for you, that's for sure!
