I just noticed that I haven’t blogged since Saturday! We were even nominated for an award while I was away. Antie Eboo, I’m humbled and I promise that I will get to it within the next week.
I have become addicted to crocheting hats! An on-line friend pointed me in the direction of a couple of great patterns. I love this website: Playin Hooky Designs Here’s Charley in one of the hats:
And the side view:
And a smaller version for a toddler:

I am excited to say too, that I got my first order for a hat (one of the ones I made last Saturday for the girls)!! I completed it and I will post a picture after I deliver it tonight (I don’t want you guys to see it before the customer, lol). I want to start selling the ones above (among others), but I can’t do it here until I purchase my domain name. I think I am going to wait to see how many word of mouth orders I get, and then see if they justify spending the money (it’s a small sum, but when you’re on a budget, every penny counts).
We had a wonderful weekend and a great family day. We took the kids to see the new polar bear, who tuckered himself out playing and was sleeping soundly when we got there:
And I got to say goodbye to my beloved Elephants…they are leaving, not sure when, but they are being sent to more appropriate climate.
That’s all for now. I have to make dinner (bacon and eggs, yum), take the big boys to scouts, then deliver the order. We’re bracing for a storm tomorrow morning and the media is making it out to be a big one. I hope they’re wrong, again.
