And Now, For Something Completely Different

I have had a headache for two days!  It is finally going away.  It always turns into an earache.  I use to get earaches all the time as a little kid, but they gave me some penicillin and I hadn't had trouble since a couple of years ago when they started again.  I've been popping Ibuprofen like it's candy and it is finally paying off.

The past couple of days I have been doing some crocheting.  One was going to be a Christmas present, but I changed my mind after it didn't come out too good (for you, Laura).  I am going to give it to her anyway just for her to have. It's a cover for a Nook.  I don't even know if it will fit since I don't have my own to measure with.
The front
The back
The L on the back started out as a small embroidery that I found on YouTube.  It looked too small and weird, so I decided to crochet a letter and add it on.  Well, you can see how ginormous that turned out.  Oh, well.  You have to take it anyway, Laura! lol  I am still going to add a couple of flowers on by the bumble bee and some leaves and flowers by the letter.  Maybe it will help.

I also made an infinity scarf.  I've been wearing it around all day since I finished it.  I think I will add a couple of more rows to make it wider.  I got it twisted up along the way when I made it.  When I make another one I am going to just go back and forth and connect it at the end so it isn't twisted.  I have to wrap it 3 times around to fit on me.  I would make it a bit shorter too.  I found the pattern here after searching on Pinterest. 

Speaking of Laura, we got to hang out for a bit today.  We were going to try this place downtown called The Soup that I have been wanting to try forever.  Well, I waited too long, because once we got there it was closed for business!  So, we walked down the street to Jimmy John's.  Always a crowd pleaser.

We also tried a place called Cherry Berry.  It has tons of different frozen yogurts and toppings.  I had chocolicious and chocolate mint with crushed graham cracker on top.  That is definitely a place I can see myself going a LOT!  Good thing you are charged by the weight or I may have super filled my cup up.  This way I can restrain myself a bit. 

When I got home I was hungry...again.  I made some rice with vegetable broth. I ate about two cups.  I know this, because I used the measuring cup to scoop it out.  
Two cups of rice.  Yum!
I also made some butterscotch oatmeal cookies.  I found a chocolate oatmeal cookie recipe in my Betty Crocker Cookie Cookbook.  They came out really weird.  They are really thin and once they cool a little they are very crunchy.  At least they still taste pretty good.

I think the problem was that the recipe I used was for chocolate oatmeal cookies, so you just add some cocoa powder to the recipe.  I thought I was using a chocolate chip oatmeal cookie recipe.  Oh well.  At least that will keep me from eating them all. 

I am only up to season two of my I Love Lucy marathon.  I couldn't believe how many show were in the first season.  There were six discs!  Kevin asked me if I was sick of watching it yet.  I said, "Kevin, I Love Lucy!" Duh!!
