For some reason, my 5 year old likes to wear a bee costume for a baby. It is from when she was a baby and now resides in the dress up bin. She wears it all over the house and tries to sting everyone.
So this past Easter, we had it at our house thinking for some reason that it would be easier to just stay home. 30 people later, we weren't so sure. Although, no one else in my family bothers to cook ham properly, so at least we had really good ham this year. It was lots of fun though and we didn't have to run all over the place and I haven't had a holiday party in a long time. Years ago, before kids, we used to have a Thanksgiving party involving all of our friends. We would cook tons of food and buy lots of beer and just have a great big old party. The 30 family members? Small compared to those parties. I miss em. Every year we talk about doing it again and we don't. Maybe this year.
So the other day we (me, my brother and my sister-in-law-by-a-different-brother) took the monsters to the Field Museum. As we are walking through the evolution exhibit, I came across trilobites. I started telling my brother how I am a big fan of trilobites and I think there should be a trilobite fan club. I'm strange, I know. Strange and geeky too. So I go home and Google it and while I didn't find an actual fan club, I did find this: The Flying Trilobite I thought I liked trilobites, but this guy is way cooler than me. (or geekier. depends on how you look at it.)
I do have a bit of knitting content for you today. I finished this set here done in Manos Silk Blend yarn (which is lovely yarn.)
I love it. I was looking for a cloche style hat and just couldn't find the right pattern. So I designed my own and it came out just as desired! I am working on the pattern now. I also have about 5 things on the needles as current projects, some with deadlines coming up pretty quickly here!
Oh and the $19 I just won on my scratch off lottery ticket? That bought me this shirt Here Not only is it just cool, but also so very, very true.
