The scarf is finally finished. Hope you like it, Brother. Yarn used, Knit Picks Merino Style in Moss and Leaf. Knitted on size 6 needles for a tighter weave, but this left me without enough yarn for my plan. I worked out a fix that will provide a more acceptable length (the required 61"). I hope the color blocking pattern is acceptable to you. If you find that you aren't wearing this very soft, warm scarf in L.A., please send it back cause it's freezing up here. Love, Nicole.

Out of all the things I do around this house, I'm glad that something very important has finally gotten done (with the help of a professional). In one day, my front door went from this, YUCK! The results of a bothced paint job from someone who claimed they knew what they were doing, NOT!

To this. Aaaah. Me and the kids made up a little song. Like to hear, it? Here it go... Who has the best door in the neigh-bor-hooooood? We, do, weeeee dooooo!

And, all though I've learned how to hold back the tears when I feel overwhelmed with all the responsibilities I have around here, I still appreciate any help that I can get. For example, HP, just 3, without complaining, folded these dish towels up for me. Yes, I put them in the linen closet just like that.

You go, girl!!!
