I really like this cozy! It's also a supersaver yarn by Red Heart. It's acrylic which also means it is washable. I think that is an important feature for a handknit with its intended use being in food (or in this case: Beverage) service! I love the color combination in this one! It's very cheerful.

This is a very popular item around here...heart-shaped peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
Rise and shine!
This morning is cold and gray. It is a great morning to curl up with my favorite pink shawl and a good, strong, hot cuppa java...
and bake some cinnamon rolls! I cheat and do it the easy way...which is to ALWAYS have a few cans of refrigerator rolls on hand at all times.
Knit, knit, knit! Purl, purl, purl!
I wanted to knit something, so last night I got online and found a cute and simple pattern for a french press cozy. I found this acrylic yarn ("Ocean" by Red Heart...yep it's a supersaver variety) in my stash and whipped it up using size 5 needles. The fabric is a little stiff, but the tight knit will hopefully keep my coffee warmer...just a little bit longer. I need to go through my jar of buttons and pick out the best ones for this project. I can hardly wait to invite a friend over for coffee!

She seems to have a fun sense of humor! Claustrophobic she is not....apparently.

School was cancelled today. It was the perfect treat for a Friday! The kids were instantly granted a three-day weekend! It was a lovely, lazy day. Even the cat got into watching the snow pile up outside.

We are all eagerly anticipating the arrival of a big winter storm. This veil of fog must be the prelude. It sure made for some BEAUTIFUL scenic shots. I really enjoyed the cool, heavy mist. It felt good on my skin.

It's hard to believe that Moses has been with us for nearly a year. She has really become a part of our family. Last night, we couldn't find her. All of us worried that something really had happened to her. Thankfully, we found her this morning....in the garage. Why hadn't we thought to even check there? We were just glad she was safe. I'm glad to have her snuggled on my bed again tonight.

If he tosses in a nickel, does that mean he gets five wishes?
I love Park Meadows Mall. I absolutely LOVE the lighting inside the mall. The light and the warm, rich wood and ironwork all play together really well for a treat for the eye. It really is a beautiful mall. I think not everyone goes there just to see the lighting...LOL
