I’ve become captivated by amigurumi, which is the Japanese craft of crocheting (or knitting) small animals or cute foody things. This will be the next thing I learn how to do! When I can make the time, that is. I haven’t a clue what I’d actually do with a crocheted cupcake, but aren’t they adorable?! Surely this is a craft that would provide nothing but smiles once mastered. The pics up there are clickable, linking to Etsy sellers, but my all-time favorite amigurumi designer is Ana Paula.
We got our DISH TV hooked up yesterday, along with our new DVR. None of us had ever experienced life with a DVR, so we didn’t know what we were missing… boy is it ever neat. Now I will be able to record all those crafty shows that DIY shoved into the wee hours of the morning, and pause live tv for a break! wow. We’ve come a long way from the days of my childhood when we had about 7 channels to watch and you actually had to leave your chair to change them.
With our DISH service, we acquired a few new channels and lost a few, so our watching habits will be a bit mixed up for a while. I admit I watched a few races on the Horseracing Channel last night, but what’s funny is that my daughter has glommed onto The Game Show channel… surely she was switched at birth.
I think I was using too much instant coffee in my mug yesterday because I only slept for four hours and I’m wide awake. I seriously need to go get a coffee maker.
simple pleasure: being able to create things that others enjoy :)
