I have been busy knitting on this last day before School goes back. I have sub jobs for the next few days, so I can’t knit during the day. Bummed but I have to earn some cash!! I am almost done with the main poncho, here is a picture of where I am right now.
I hope to get it knit tonight and I will knit the turtle neck on tomorrow and sew the buttons on and then my daughter can wear it as it has been super cold here in Atlanta! Once I get this all finished I will get a picture of her wearing it and then set it up on my Etsy site to be sold as a finished product. I custom make all the items on my site so that my customers can pick what ever color they want for the item except for a couple of items with are set with colors.
Since I was knitting all day, it was a laundry day and I had to find a really simple dinner to make. Can’t take time from the knitting now can I!! Since I am back eating a Keto Diet, I needed to pull out a favorite of my family, Egg Roll in a Bowl! This is the best dinner, I can get it done in about 20 minutes and unless I make a double batch, and with a 14-year-old growing boy I have to, there are no leftovers. I find these recipes all over the web and this is my favorite version of this. We loving call it crack slaw because I really could eat it every day!! Give it a try, my son likes it with rice to make it more filling. Not that you can fill up a 14-year-old boy!!
I love Wednesday nights, normally we have church and my kids go to the youth group and I have a bible study class (grow group) at our church. The kids get dinner there for 3 bucks a head and my group brings dinner and we share the meal before we dive into the study. With the holidays we have not had it, we resume next week. So my week has been weird not seeing that group of people in a few weeks. Our church is going to have family dinners on Wednesday nights again in Mid January, I love those for the same reason. I don’t have to cook. One night a week I don’t have to deal with it. A blessing! Plus it is a way to reset myself with some time with God. I have started to read Jesus Calling every morning to center myself and then I can start to knit or what ever I need to do that day. I love that centering time, I am trying hard to do more listening instead of talking in my prayer time then, but that is so very hard!!
Well it is getting late and I need to get that poncho finished! I really want to get it done quickly as I have a cardigan to make for myself! I don’t ever make anything for myself, so this will be lots of fun!!
Until we meet again, Be Blessed!!
