Hello All! This past weekend has been just beautiful here. For a nice change, it was sunny, you could feel the warmth of the sun and it was a little windy, but I saw people walking along the neighborhood, yard cleanup, and overall, just happier people! Of course, puppy and I were out and about for our daily walk. He starts to literally freak out if I reach for that pair of sneakers or open the closet door where I keep the bags for you-know-what! All in all, we are both so happy to be out in the sunshine. Here he is trying to wait very patiently and I actually think he’s doing a very good job, (this time)!
Anyway, after our walk, I cooked up some chicken cutlets for my salads this week. Since they looked so good, I had to have a couple for dinner. I think I have been making these cutlets for as long as I can remember. My kids have always liked them and you can change up the recipe by making chicken parmesan with pasta or just by making a vegetable or salad to go with it. My son likes to use ranch dressing to dip them into. Either way, I have been making them the same way my mom has been making them forever! And I do mean forever! Don’t they look so good!
Ok, so I really should get to the knitting. I went yesterday to my new favorite knitting store in the area, Trumpet Hill, and had a look around at all the beautiful yarn. This is like having writers block – I can’t decide what to knit next. I have a couple of projects to finish, but they are not moving me at this time! I did sign up for this knitting class in May that I will tell you all about later, but I am excited to learn a new technique and have a wonderful cowl in the end. With the weather changing, I feel like my knitting should be changing along with it? I don’t know – call me crazy!
I was looking through Pinterest and came across this really cute idea for teaching a child how to knit. The book tells a little rhyme to go along with knitting. It’s called, A Child’s Seasonal Treasury, by Betty M. Jones, and it goes like this:
in through the front door
running round the back
peeping through the window
off comes jack!
How cute is that! When my grandmother taught me how to knit, I don’t remember any rhyme, but what a great way to get started. Someday, maybe I’ve be able to use it. Too cute!
