Not Really a Lot Going On

I've been having pretty intense cravings for Skittles lately. Not sure why. Actually, that's not true. They are a coping mechanism for me.
They are a big help at work:

They also help me knit:

I'm currently working on a project for a co-worker. I was putting it off for a while. It will be a baby blanket. I am knitting squares with different patterns. When I have enough squares, I will crochet them together. I was putting it off because I don't really like this co-worker. Someone suggested to me that since I knit "pretty good", I should knit something for the baby. I resent those kind of statements or suggestions. It takes a lot out of me to knit for someone else. I'm more of a selfish knitter. I changed my mind because of the new life that will enter our world. While I'm working on this little project, I'm just trying to put all my good feelings into it and wish the baby strength and love.

Last week, I contacted the Cash for Gold people. Today in my mail box, there was that postage paid envelope they tell you about on their ads.

The way I see it, I don't really have anything to lose. Those items are a symbol of something that has been. I do not want to go back to that point in my life. This seems the healthiest way to be rid of those symbols.

So I found those items and tucked them into that envelope.

Tomorrow I will wish them on their merry way:

I will let you know what happens.
I'm off to surf the web. I hope you all had a great St. Paddy's day if you celebrate. If not, then I hope you enjoyed the weather. See you later.

I Want My Hour Back Please.....NAO!!!!!

Alice in Wonderland was awesome. I loved how it was based more on the written story than the cartoon version from the 1950s. I won't spoil the story, but omg, I really enjoyed it. It even came with glasses:

They have a weird dust covering them because I had to wrestle them from Rebel. After I took the picture, Rebel jumped right back on them. I guess they belong to him.

After the move we went to the book store in town, Indigo. I came with this:

I love this author. I like how he takes a story you are very familiar with and spins it to another perspective.

There were no adventures in the kitchen this week end. I feel almost stoned. I hate this spring ahead nonsense. To add to the challenge, I get to into work an hour and half earlier. This will not be pretty.
Since I'm not really able to focus on anything, I've been stumbling around the net. I have come across a few really cool things.
Like for instance these clocks. I have never seen anything like these before.
I was also looking into the Alice in Wonderland story and found this site about this expedition kit. THIS HAS SOME QUESTIONABLE CONTENT. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND CHILDREN VIEW THIS SITE.

Hmmm. I think that covers my week end. I hope you all had a great one. See you later. :D
