Where did the first week of 2013 go?
I've been trying to limit my computer time & so far it's working pretty well. My incessant checking of social media has almost completely stopped except for a few check-in's a couple times during the day. Blog reading has slowed down too, although I've missed that & commenting so I'm planning on starting that again. I think I just needed a screen break. We've also had the tv off more then on during the day and that has helped Ree's imagination, mood, & our craft time!
We have been making plans for the New Year, cleaning out old papers, cleaning all the dust bunnies out of the house, organizing books, etc. All the things that come with a new year. And there's been some knitting!
I made myself a pair of Toasty. I knit them a little longer in the arms & hands so that they almost cover the tips of my fingers, yet I can still push them down if I need to.
And this is Calorimetry. My hair is getting so long that when it is all bunched up under my hat, it pushes the hat up & off my ears. It's no fun to be outside trying to have fun in the snow with a hat that won't cover ears! Enter Calorimetry. This is like the "half-hat" that I used to have when I was little. It covers the top of the head & ears with a perfect opening for my ponytail/bun. My ears stay warm and I'm happy. Ree is too & has stopped yelling at me to wear my hat!
