Who knew there was such cool stuff online?

Just had a friend tell me about The Pioneer Woman ( ). Wow, what a find! Can't tell you what she sent me there for (I am sworn to secrecy, but it's in the cooking section.), but I am just loving exploring the sit. This woman is FUNNY!! Check it out if you have a few minutes...or hours. I can vouch for at least one of the recipes (so can Trey!), and I can't wait to try a few more out.

Knitting Anyone

For those of you who do not know, I have really started to LOVE knitting and crocheting. Yarn is just AWESOME! I enjoy walking through my local craft store and looking at all of the wonderful yarn types and colors. I think that I really enjoy this "artform" because I didn't need any real visually creative talent to be good at knitting and crochet. In a family chock full of artists, this was a relief. I found my craft!! What's more, this craft is contagious. If your friends find out that you're a yarn junkie, several will want to join in on the fun. So, if you're local and you'd like to learn, give me a call. The more the merrier! And, if you're far away, here are some great websites that helped me along the way:

Oh heck, just google how to knit or how to crochet. There are free tutorials and free patterns everywhere. :-] If you choose to join in the fun, please let me know and post some pictures. I'd love to see other people's projects.
