Never ever *cough* errm well, maybe yes, I am.
So Jan showed me his results, and i had to take the test too. Want the result? Yes? Ok, here it is:
Yes, it’s true.
And, on a knitting related note, yes, I gave in to peer pressure again (*sigh*) and joined Ravelry. I’m Sade there as well, who’d guess my nick was still free after so many people joined?
I’m not a big spender tho, I usually prefer to spend the time with people rather than spend big amounts of money. However, this time I spent some money on myself, not much, and got this nice big bag so I can take all my stuff to university, in something smaller and lighter than my backpack. With no more talky talky:
If you want to see more pics, you can see a detail, and the back. Tah Dah!
On a completely unrelated note, Jan was so nice as to whip up a couple widgets for me, so I could use yet another widget on the sidebar. Seems if you want a widget, all your sidebar has to be made out of them. Anyway, it looks good! So patient he is (-:
Yes, I know I’ve writen Horoscope wrong, but I always call it Horrorscope anyway. Oh yeah, this is what stars tell about me:
Seen at Gundel‘s.
Yez I Can!
Yesterday I went out for dinner with friends to FrescCo, a free buffet place with LOADS of vegetarian, and even vegan, options. They gave me a little pressie, so I remember them when I’m in cold Belgium snuggling on the couch:
And I sent each of them home with four cupcakes of the ones I made the previous day (pics to come).
And my mother bought me new running shoes. Purrty walk on clouds running shoes! In case you’re interested, they’re Brooks Beast.
Pre-Birthday, I spent the afternoon cooking. What did I accomplish? This:
- A docen lemony vanilla cupcakes (from VCTOTW)
- 15 (yes, fifteen!) chocolate ginger cupcakes (also from VCTOTW)
- Made chocolate cointreau ganache for those chocolate ginger cupcakes
- Baked breadrolls from the freezer – only mjummy bread while we get our bread machine back. Over a month and counting…
- Baked about two cups of chestnuts. Autumn = Roasted chestnuts for me!
- Roasted half kilo of pumkin, tomorrow I’ll make… Roasted pumkin soup with it (:
Oh, and I am actually going out for dinner to celebrate. Dessert is on me!
And Jan gave me a little black sheep cellphone charm for my birthday. He sent it via mail, and it arrived early, but I love opening my mail! So I have a stand-in present till I go to Belgium in December and get my other pressie. What will it be?!
I leave you, with black sheepie:
And don’t forget to check out no-contest. There is still time!
Or at least, for me! I’ve been feeling like browsing Christmas ornaments, and making a nice tree for a couple weeks, and that doesn’t happen every year.
If you’ve been reading this blog, you may remember that last year I had this no-contest where everyone won a Christmas Card. I had so much fun making the cards together with Jan, cards we later sent to our friends and family, and to all of you who sent me their address, that I want to repeat it this year too.
So here it is how it works: you use the Contact Me page to send me a message with your name and your full snail mail address (please, include the country!) (feel free to include the nick by which I know you usually if that is the case).
I’m setting a deadline for this, you have to send the message by the 30th on November. This way I can get more cardstock and envelopes if I don’t have enough, and make the actual cards. Each card will have a personal message handwriten by me, of course.
Fine print? I will not share the information you provide in this no-contest with anyone, by any reason, not even if they pay me a ton of money. The information will be used only for the purpose of sending you a pretty handmade Christmas card, and nothing else.
Hurry up, the cards are waiting!
