Our milkman gave me a Christmas card this morning. Also, some milk.

Holiday Knitting Update: I finished the mitts for Meredith’s teacher and am now working on the second of three owl cozies that need to be completely done by the end of next week. I will then make a pair of fingerless mitts for Harper’s teacher. Knitting with deadlines drives me bananas, so today I did what anyone would do in this situation. I started a cashmere scarf for myself. It’s red.

This evening my kids have piano lessons, and tomorrow Harper has basketball practice and I have a PTO meeting as well as a social engagement. On Wednesday, I’m going to physical therapy, volunteering in Meredith’s classroom, and having lunch with a friend. The only thing written on the calendar for Thursday is Eggplant Parmesan 282. I’m not quite sure what the 282 is for, but I’m sure it will occur to me on Friday, which is the day I volunteer in Harper’s class, Meredith’s class, and attend a book sale with  Tempe. Saturday is Tuba Christmas, but I believe I’ll skip it this year to take the girls down to my folks’ house to bake Christmas cookies.

I need to wash towels. This morning I had to dry off with a washcloth, and it was a bit unpleasant.

I recently discovered that I love roasted flax seeds. Bonus: They keep my eyes from shriveling. ‘ ‘ ‘text/javascript’>

  1. Roasted flax seeds? I have a whole bag in my pantry and shriveley eyes. I’ll definitely try that.

  2. Perhaps the recipe is on page 282? I always make similar notes to myself, and then can’t remember which book/magazine/cookbook I was flipping through to begin with!

  3. Am I just old and out-of-it? I’ve never heard of any of these musicians you are playing! I did like the Mumford and Sons and will look for an album to buy. Any suggestions?

  4. I bet 282 is the page number that recipe for the eggplant is on. Good luck with that.

    Target makes these blue corn and flax seed tortilla chips. They are my favorite thing.

  5. I too need to wash towels. I did not, however, need to dry off with a wash cloth. I did more of a shake-dry thing. (jj) :)
    Eggplant parmesan sounds delicious.

    A milkman, eh? That’s what I call my hubby when he picks up milk on the way home from work….does he bring things like eggnog closer to Christmas?

    I have to start Katrina in piano lessons soon…so busy. Enjoy your day if you can!

  6. I’m one of those people that use a towel(well, two because above the neck get its own towel) all week – or sometimes longer if I’m honest. I know it grosses people out, but I’m clean when I’m using it and there’s no way I’m washing that many towels. I just hope you don’t have to resort to toilet paper; it’s not that effective…. I wish I didn’t have that knowledge.

  7. Tuba Christmas!!! The similarities between us continue to grow. I LOVE Tuba Christmas (my sister plays Tuba – but she is in KC, MO).
    Pics of the finished knits, please.
