Baby Booties!

I am knitting Jane some baby booties, and they are doing well! I finished knitting the parts for the first bootie and the first part of the second bootie. Now I just need the second part of the second bootie.

It takes a long time to make booties. The first one took me at least 8 hours. So never knit unless you have mucho tiempo (a lot of time). 

The booties are still too big for Jane. They are about the perfect size for a 1-year-old.

Grow, Jane! Grow!

The bootie is very cute, but very blank. 
This little thing wouldn't take more than an hour to make, right?
Who would have thought that a big flat pattern would turn into cute little baby shoes?
The time-consuming process of knitting.
The (almost) finished project.

Warning: Only Knit While Under Adult Supervision. Knitting could result in injury or death.
I cut my finger knitting!

Cold Rainy Days

Yesterday was cold and rainy, which is really unusual for Tucson in April. Mom liked it, but not me! It was too cold, at least for me, the Tucson girl. The only way to deal with it was hot chocolate!

The First Supper

Saturday, April 11

Today I cooked a real dinner all by myself, with no help, motivation (besides hunger), clean-up support, or anything. I made a real dinner all by myself! We had biscuits, green beans, and chicken (and ice water). And it all turned out really well... except the chicken got cold and no one wanted to eat their green beans. But the water and biscuits were very successful!

I cleaned the kitchen, got dinner ready, set the table, cleared the table and re-cleaned the kitchen.

During dinner, I got several complaints, mostly about the green beans. "They're too stiff." "They don't taste good." I'm sorry, I put butter and salt in them, and they tasted good to me! So I had to bribe a little "If you eat all your green beans, you get dessert, which will be strawberry smoothies." 

So everybody ate their green beans.
