My holiday was excellent, we did not celebrate this year (for the second year). No tree, decorations, gifts. Nada!!! And, I got to admit it was really nice and less stressful. The only thing I missed was the decorations. I might incorporate that back into our lives, oh yeah and I cooked and baked of course. We will probably go shopping or something Saturday.
So, what did I do during this holiday? I knit of course. I am still knitting my daughter's sweater, I am finished with the back and am about to knit the arm sleeves, but this project is so monotonous, so what does a knitter do in this case - start a new project. My next knit project was to complete the Bandeau that I started for my daughter, Anger Management, but of course she saw me knitting it and said she changed her mind, she now wants the Ruffle scarf out of Scarf Style. It is going along quite well and I hope to upload a picture tonight or tomorrow. I am using the same yarn I was going to use to make the Bandeau, so I did not have to order any new yarn. Which is great because I am knitting from my stash until I get rid of some of my yarn before I buy anything new yarn (except for the scarf exchange).
Oh and I meant to tell you gals, I have FINALLY completed my essay and got my professor and friend (who happens to be a professor) to write references for me, so my application was sent in. Now, if my boss hurry up and put his in that would be great (I sent him a reminder before the break – but that means nothing). So, I should be starting grad school soon!!! Hopefully.
Also, I made some cute snack mixes for my coworkers this year and I think I did an excellent job. My kids loved the snack too. The only thing I would change about this project is the jar. The snack mix includes: Cranberries in Apple Juice, Sunflower Seeds (nuts), M&M’s, Raisins, Almonds, and Peanuts.
