Cutest baby booties in the world

Just a quick knit for a friend, I love these and want a pair for myself if only my feet where not so big!!

Science, I love it, every little bit of it. Well almost, as a parent one gets always dragged into the "making of". At least this parent is.

There was red Jello and black Jello all over my kitchen, not to mention the black Jello spill all over the back seat of my car! Lucky for me (and the person who made that batch) I have black fabric on my seats.
Afterwards I heard that said person's parent did know the batch was no good but send it anyway without warning. grumble grumble.

The experiment went really well, only thing what is left to do is the gathering of the data and the making of a nice display. I am guessing this will also be made in our home.
What really bothers me is that DS is just worrying out of his mind he gets a bad grade because the other students involved don't really care (nor their parents)
Hopefully this is the last time we have to do a science project with a group.

Anyway, afterwards DS was really happy and he put on his "groovy" glasses in the car.

Look what I found in the store, this candy is worth its own blogpost.
Coconut M&M's!! I don't think this package lasted more that 30 seconds, it was simply inhaled.
Now the big question is, do they come in BIG bags???

Time flies

Wow, January came and is almost gone!! And before one knows it, there is a neglected blog.
DS is busy with his science project, this year they have to team up. There are three boys working on this project, or should we say just one and a half.....
I have issues with this, but apparently his teacher does not and is happy to hand out good grades to those students who have not done anything.
Finally (with some intervention *cough, cough*) tomorrow afternoon the boys will come over and I will be hosting the Experiment........ Keep your fingers crossed that me and my kitchen survive!
Last Monday I could not resist any longer and after a search for the perfect yarn in my stash (or better the ones with enough yardage) the knee highs from selbustrikk have been started.
We had the day off that day, and after some episodes of Doc Martin on Netflix, this is what the sock looked like.
Also finished and not blogged yet, my thick lace scarf , it has already served its purpose.

Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year everybody!! May your year be filled with Love, Happiness, Health and Laughter.

Our first day of the year was spend nice and quiet, we did go out for lunch, DS raked the leaves in the pouring rain, just because he was "committed to doing that Saturday", so he could spend the week playing and hanging out with friends.
I do have a picture of his happy face, but being a good mom, I will not post it. (for now......)

We do have these cute birds in the garden that really love the olives that fall from the tree right in front of our window.
I like to sit on the couch in the afternoon and watch them while knitting and listening to a podcast.
Inspired by these little round birds (I have no idea what kind of bird they are) there was a little bird knitting going on yesterday afternoon.
Now I have to go see if I have some grey and yellow yarn and make one that looks like my little friend on the picture.
