...It must mean that it's Monday!
So what did I do this weekend?
On Saturday I baked some of these.
But I baked mine for 10 minutes and didn't frost them. I put them in the freezer and the boys can have a few for breakfast heated up and drizzled with some maple syrup.
Can't be any worse than the plethora of sugar cereals being funneled into my house (or trash can) by Upstairs Neighbor Lady, right?
Speaking of the freezer, in the morning, I went to pull some sausage out for Sunday dinner and noticed that "Hey, this is already thawed!"
Our 1980something refrigerator decided to go belly up.
Did I mention I went grocery shopping on Friday?
Landlord was working, so he had his brother come out to look at it. He tried to tell me that I was "choking" the freezer with food.
Um, yeah because full freezers are inefficient freezers. (Insert eye roll here).
So he pulled a few loaves of bread out of my freezer, unplugged it, vacuumed the coils, and then, after convincing me that his wife did the same thing to the freezer and when he did all that, it worked again--plugged it back in.
And it was *GASP!* still dead.
That was about noon.
At 4:30 p.m., which is was approximately 12 eggs, a box of butter, a jar of mayo, a half gallon of milk, and a box of ice cream sandwiches later, they brought the new fridge.
I was instructed though not to put any food near the back vent of the freezer lest I choke it again. If I follow those rules, that means I will basically be able to use 1/3rd of the freezer space.
Do you ever get the feeling like you're the only sane person walking around?
While I was waiting for the Landlord to show up with the new fridge and while my food slowly perished I worked on some things to match this--
Oh my god! Real knitting!!!!
Remember The Other Pregnant Girl At Work? She's having a boy, if you remember your Monday posts well.
I wanted to make her something--and my friend Double L had just gifted me a TON of the softest yarn ever.
This is just a simple "Grandma's Washcloth" pattern done in Paton's Bee Mine in various stripes. But oh so soft!!!
And what did I make to match the blanket?
Some delightful burp cloths. Actually the pink one and one of the yellow ones are for something else (not me). Stay tuned for that.
I also made Baby Bez 3.0 a couple of receiving blankets:
And finally a handful of these mini-burp cloths that I made based on a set of burp cloths that Discoknits
gifted me waaay back in the day when Moochie was born.
I like their little travel-size.
It was an uber-productive weekend overall.
I find that I'm not much of a nester really. I have no intentions of cleaning when I reach the ends of pregnancies.
Instead I turn into this hyper Martha Stewart.
I remember with Moochie I went on a huge baking spree.
Only 6 weeks left of this incubation--I wonder what the hyper Martha Stewart nesting urge will create next? Ha ha!
