February 9

Hasn't been quite a month, but almost! Facebook, I tell you, is in competition here. Spring Break Plans are already shaping up and little guy really wants to go to Disneyland again....this time with a trip to Universal Studios. So, we will do that in mid March.
Knitting? Well, yes, that. I love my yarn........I want to start a pair of socks again, but there are all kinds of excuses getting in the way! I also joined a Malabrigo Yarn Club, and we are getting our second shipment, mine should come next week, and I think it's a sweater! So, here we go! I love to see what other people are working on. Wish I knew more knitters down here in Scottsdale and Phoenix.
I painted Alex's bedroom a lovely khaki looks much better than it did. I am refinishing his dresser, the one I bought at Savers in Minneapolis for $5!.......I am painting it black and I bought very cool silver/pewter drawer pulls at a garage sale the other day --the owner is a designer and gosh, she had gobs of fun stuff! I bought bolts of designer fabric for $2 -$5 a roll! And cool trims! (anyways, Alex wanted red and black walls-so I'm giving him a black dresser instead)- and Russell is going to put up his Devin Hester (Chicago Bears) giant wall decal (I can't remember what they're called right now) -A life-size decal of the wondrous football player is all I know for sure.
Oh, and I got my hair all cut off and colored one color (espresso) instead of highlights...kind of short, yes, but it'll grow. Hubby says it really is nice other than that he likes long hair better, in general... he is so nice about it! It really is a nice cut, but I miss my hair to tell you the truth!
Today, I also plan to get out there and get on the elliptical ......
What else? Spent an hour at the library this morning perusing books for Alex to read and also looking at cookbooks. So, I have been busy, I also bought fabric and trim for some different window coverings in my studio downstairs. I want to paint the walls, too. I have a lot to do down there, in terms of organizing and decorating. The fabric I got is wondrous. Where is my camera, again??? I didn't lie when I said I'd post photos, I just haven't gotten there yet!
Well, I'm off. Have a blessed day!

Find that camera already, LOL... and make sure I get to see the new hair cut too. When I lose the rest of this weight I am going short too.

Did not see how long your hair had gotten. I got a lot of mine chopped off too a couple of weeks ago. It was to my waist and now it is just past my shoulders. Bernie is like Russell. Says it looks good but preferred it longer. LOL. I guess mine and Bernie's hair is about the same length. LOL.
