Sept 13

Sometimes it's just too hard to come up with a title for this!!

Tomorrow is a big day.

Our baby girl turns 9. Where has the time gone? She has one friend coming over tomorrow after school. We'll have her party on Sunday. She's invited 5 friends to come to her party. Now I need to get busy planning games, buying decorations and prizes. And that goodie bag stuff! (UGH)

Tomorrow my hubby also leaves to go to work in the city for 12 days. That's going to be a loonnnggg 12 days!! http://www.eastlink.ca/eltv/storyone.asp That's what he'll be working at.

Today I'm doing some baking for him to take with him. Also doing laundry and ironing so that he'll have clean clothes to take with him. Aren't I a good wife??

Last night was our second obedience class. Flint is getting better; but not much better. He still pulls, especially when there are other dogs or kids around. I wish I could get him to stop that. The instructor says there is hope for him. I hope she is right!

I'm still knitting on scarves. I've got 13 (I think) done so far. Went to take a picture of them yesterday, only to discover that the batteries were dead in the camera. They are re-charging as I type. Tomorrow I'll be able to share a picture of them. Promise. Most of the scarves are for upcoming craft sales. One is making it's way to Mary Anne. The big question is, can she guess which one from the picture?

Tomorrow I'm hoping to take cupcakes into Katie's class for a snack after lunch. I like to do that on the kids birthdays. Elizabeth shared a nice recipe for me. At least it sounds nice. I'll be making the cupcakes after lunch. Elizabeth is coming up Friday morning to help me decorate Katie's b-day cake for Sunday. It'll be a chocolate cake with a horses head on the top of it. I have a horse head mold.

Katie impressed me last night. I left for our obedience class, and she was just starting to knit a scarf with a ball of thick mystery yarn. I got home 1.45 hours later, and she had the whole ball of yarn knit up. It made a short scarf that we added tassels to. It's her Christmas gift for Nannie. Then we cast on a scarf for her to knit for Aunt Sandra; this one is k3,p3 ribbing. Told her she had to do some ribbing to practice her purling.

Must go, gotta pay attention to the cookies.
