Happy Monday!


Finding Motivation

I’m fresh out, of motivation that is. I definitely have stuff I should be doing; finishing the Little Nut Hat pattern, writing other new patterns, cleaning my house… but somehow I am completely without motivation.

Only time can fix this problem, I think. Do you have any sure fire motivators? Do you just do it? Or do you find yourself at a slump like this and just let things work themselves out?

I’m attributing my lack of ummph on a lack of solid sleep and not exercising. The first I can’t really solve until my daughter decides to sleep through the night again; I think she’s growth spurting. The second problem gets remedied today since I start working out with my husband today after a two week sabbatical. A few years ago I injured my shoulder in some unknown way and two weeks ago I finally went to the orthopedic doctor who said I had bursitis with impingement. One cortisone shot in the shoulder and two weeks later I feel confident enough to start heavy exercise again. Here’s hoping for smooth sailing in the shoulder department!

Please share your slump breakers. I need all the help I can get!


Cute Find

Hey Guys.  Just wanted to share the cutest plates I found the other day in the dollar section of Target.

I am a sucker for divided plates.  I secretly, ok, not so secretly, hate my food touching.  While my son doesn’t seem to have this problem divided plates are too cute to pass up, especially these!  Like I said I found them in the Target dollar bins and there were only four different designs so I scooped them up!  Love!

I thought they were pretty adorable.  My son has been on a HUGE Halloween kick this year so these just add to the atmosphere of non stop Halloween discussions.  Between spiders, pumpkins and Halloween being screamed all the time I could use a little cute to go along with it.

Have you found any cute treasures lately?  Do share!


WIP (Work in Progress) Wednesday

Today I am bringing you what I hope is my next written pattern.  The Little Nut Hat is a cute little fall hat, acorn style.  My first knitted pattern, it will feature seed stitch and stockinette.  It should have all sizes from 0-3 months to adult.  Pattern is being written as I can.  This first version may be altered but this should give you an idea of what I’m going for.  Hope you like 🙂

as you can clearly see it is definitely a WIP

Funny Little Guy

How on Earth do kids come up with some of the stuff they say?  Here are a few snippets of conversations that happened in my house today:

Me: Jason, what would you like to drink with lunch? Juice or water?

Jason: …. COKE!

Me: *sigh* Juice or water?…

Jason: *completely crestfallen* Juice…

I probably should have seen this coming as yesterday Jason stole his Daddy’s soda can and proceeded to guzzle the Diet Pepsi with reckless abandon.  Note to self: HIDE THE COKE! LOL


Little Stinker

Jason also surprised me today with this:

Jason: Mommy…. Mommy…. Mommy!

Me: Yes Jason?

Jason: Love you!


Did your littles do or say anything surprising or funny today?
