My yarn has arrived. Squee! This is my tax return yarn which I order back on February 28th. Yes, that's right, the 28th... of February. I ordered the Watery color of Rowan Tweed from Webs. I knew it was on back order but I had absolutely no idea it was going to be this late. I wish they hadn't charged me for shipping because of the delay but oh well. I must say they answered my e-mails very promptly which is more than I can say about other businesses I had placed orders from in the past. When they did e-mail me back, they were super courteous with me and gave me options to try and please me, so I couldn't ask for more from them. In addition to the great customer service, I got a pretty good deal because of their discount of lowering they price when you purchase a good amount of yarn from them. I can't wait to start my Tangled Yoke Cardigan.

Yatesville Lake

We took another of our road trips. A while back, Paul and I were watching one of those shows on the Lochness Monster and he had mentioned this lake where he had seen something similar to the picture of the Lochness Monster. He told me that you can actually get a strange ripple effect there because several lakes meet at one spot and the currents make humps in the water. It was the Yatesville Lake in Kentucky. It was such a beautiful day. I was right after a week's run of just rain. We got to stand over the lake and just observe all the boats moving across the lake. This is definitely a spot that I would want to go back and visit again. The boats were out and we actually saw a three story boat with a swirly slide on it. It seemed like such a fun slide to ride except for the water up the butt part. lol.

Weekend Cooking

I found such a great recipe for Crock Pot Spinach and Mushroom Lasagna. My mouth is watering as I sit here and think about it (seriously!). I know, I know, I love my crock pot. It's such a great appliance to have. On my days off I can just toss the ingredients in it and come back a few hours later and dinner is done. Tada! The recipe actually came from The only change I made to it was substituting the egg with Ener-G Replacer. I'll have to make it again another weekend when I'm eating cheese again.

My poor attempt at a Michael Scott pancake. How did he make them perfectly rectangular?
Milk-Chocolate Cookies from Martha Stewart's cookie book. Mmmm mmmm. I love this book. I can't wait for the cupcake book to come out in June. There goes that mouth watering sensation feeling again. I know many don't like her but she is the queen of what she does and you can't hate on her for that.

Happy Belated April Fool's Day!

I was a bit silly on April Fool's Day. I only played one prank but I made sure it was a good one. I'm actually the first one to be at my job with my boss and while he was in the office I shrinked wrapped all the registers and copy machines. To say the least, his facial expression was PRICELESS.

Word of the Day

I have an e-mail subscription to a couple word of the days and found this one to be a bit interesting. I received it a while back but am just now getting around to sharing it with you.

dyed-in-the-wool \dyde-in-thuh-WOOL\

So there you go my wooly fans, see how you can incorporate it into your regular vocabulary :)
