coffee-owlIf we were having coffee, I’d have an extra large. I didn’t sleep well last night, which is becoming more of a trend. Oh well. At least we have a lazy day ahead.

Last weekend Justin was away at snow camp in NH with about 60 Jr & Sr High students. It was a long weekend for me and the kids, lol. He takes trips every few months, and over the past couple of years, the kids have become used to it. Except for this time- it really hit them hard. So, we went to Target for some retail therapy. They had gift cards from Christmas and they both wanted (yet another) Lego set. So, they each got one and that kept them busy for quite a while.

Over this past weekend I also tried fiddling around with some blog maintenance, and long story short, I somehow managed to lose my whole blog. Yup, gone, deleted, vanished. I won’t bore you with the details, but I ended up starting from scratch (a few technical difficulties along the way, of course), and I was able to restore some old posts using Google’s cached website pages. The sad part was that I had just finished our chat, but I hadn’t linked it up yet. I won’t lie- I had a good cry about it.

In other news, I’m finally over the month long cold I was fighting, and I’m finally feeling productive again. It was a good week, not too much to say about it really. I had a nice lunch with my mom on Wednesday (hi mom!), and I’ve been working on items for the re-launch of my Etsy shop. There’s been lots of test knitting and lots of ripping out and starting over. I did learn however, that cotton yarn can’t be dyed with food coloring like wool can. Probably should’ve Googled that first! So, I’ve got the correct dye on order and I’m super excited for it to get here so I can try again.

How was your week?

    Snow camp is such a great idea that I have never heard of before..I am very sad about the loss of entire blog. That is a major catastrophe. I have had a lot of broken objects and electronic glitches lately, but nothing so dire as loss of entire blog. My deepest and sincere sympathies. Thanks for coffee.

    I’m sorry about the blog, posts you lost. Bummer. That reminds me that I should backup the posts that I write straight in WordPress. I am doing that more and more these days. I used to write out if the site then paste here, which meant I had a copy out of the site.

    I always keep drafts of all my posts, some in an old school notebook and then some online, just in case… losing your work is such a royal pain
