Did anybody find my voice. It seems to be missing.

Had to work today and it was really busy. Since I was already having a cold, my voice is now totally gone.

I've been working on the sleeves of Montera yesterday, and I'm working on the sleeve-caps now. Almost done :D

Lieke hope you're feeling better & you find your voice again.

Still raining here ... glad it will be gone tomorrow for the Easter egg hunts. I posted pics from last night on the blog & will post more Monday.

You could knit yourself a cat.
Yeah, I know. I just really wish. I do actually have several stuffed animal cats... but they just aren't the same.
The list of "dogs good for allergy sufferers" - the only part on there that I would really recommend paying much attention to, is the top part where it says that each individual is different so spend time with the dog first before you take it home. I could give a six page debate on why the rest of the page is less than factual, but I will refrain.
However, Julie, I have heard that curly coated dogs like poodles are supposed to retain the dander close to their skin if regularly bathed, so Katie may not react to a clean poodle. (but she still might... it depends, and I've never tested this myself).

Chris and Jess: I think I still have a knitted cat that my mother made about 30 years ago for my daughter. I will see if I can find it and post a picture.

Gina: No Easter egg hunt here but we did get the boys chocolates and some spending money. They do a hunt at their house but they are really getting a bit old for the Easter bunny. The youngest one still believes in it. What a great surprise to receive all that yarn in the mail.

Lieke: I hope your voice is back soon.

Christine: Glad you had a good day. Try to relax while you are away.

Julie: You eggs look great. Love the little Ring around the Rosie video. It is great to hear little ones laughing like that.

Julie, It's Nashua handknits. UGH on having to untangle the yarn! We're getting your rain tomorrow. Glad our kids are too old for Easter Egg hunts. I feel bad for other families around here, though. It's supposed to be really stormy tomorrow.

Lieke, at least you don't need a voice to talk to us! Hope your voice returns soon!

Happy Easter to all of you!

Dustina, Happy Birthday!

I've been baking today. I made a raspberry fruit tart (DH's birthday cake), a strawberry glace' pie, and a lemon pudding pie. Plus I made a batch of strawberry jam! Strawberries were $.97/qt! Thankfully, we're going out for DH's birthday dinner tonight, so I don't have to make dinner. Tomorrow it's ham, party-potatoes, greenbeans almondine and salad. I think I might make some rolls, too.

I second that- what are party potatoes?

Julie, I'm glad you got your yarn straightened out!

Christine, it's great to hear from you! Sounds like a fun time!

Gina, it's supposed to storm here tomorrow morning, too! My girls went to an easter egg hunt this morning at school, but we're supposed to have one at church tomorrow morning... we'll see how that goes.

Lieke, I hope you find your voice soon!

Emily, I wish there was a hypoallergenic cat, too. Cats make me sneeze, and my Emily get eczema from them. But we all love cats!

Today our neighbor had a surprise birthday party for her husband. She took him out for dinner, and Chris and the girls and I went over and decorated, put out the food and let in the guests, and then we played some party games till they got back. It was a fun party! We continued with the games after they came back, and fun was had by all.

Before the party I spent the afternoon baking! I made this really complicated Italian easter cake; actually I started it yesterday afternoon. All I have to say is, it better be good! Tomorrow we're going to church, then home to warm up the ham, cook the green beans... the rolls are from the store and my mom is bringing the scalloped potatoes.

HAPPY EASTER, EVERYONE!

Lady Violet, great sock!

My voice came back. Not talking seemed to help. I still don't feel all to great, but well, I'll still go to my moms b-day today, and I really want to play D&D and go the the gamesfair tomorrow, so I think I'll just take some aspirin and pull myself together. Tuesday, I'll allow myself to stay in bed if I still feel like this.
