So…I’m still struggling on the crochet front. These were my first two attempts at a granny square. They’re more like granny circles. And my first attempt at crocheting a simple square using single and double crochet? It was a trapezoid. I’m not giving up, though. It took me a while to get comfortable with knitting, so I know I just need some time. At the moment crocheting is anything but relaxing, because I’m so focused on trying to find the right hole to stick my needle through that my forehead is all crinkled and my tongue is sticking out.
My sister did this meme a couple of days ago, and I thought I’d give it a shot.
Ten simple things that make me smile and say “Life is good!”
1. Kisses from my love.
2. Rainy days.
3. Swimming in Barton Springs.
4. Getting mail.
5. Taking an afternoon nap.
6. Sipping chai with soymilk and sugar.
7. Sitting on our little patio at night.
8. Walking to the neighborhood grocery store.
9. Hearing my kitty-cat purr.
10. Caramel pot de creme from Fino.
I just looked at the online menu for Fino, and I’m crushed…they no longer offer my beloved dessert. Tragedy! Maybe I can make a special request for it…
I think today is a papercraft day. Happy Tuesday!
