A little taste of Heaven!

We love us some fried chicken here. I mean it’s everybody’s favorite. And I have not made it since DD#5 was born. Remember she’ll be 8 weeks old tomorrow. There is chicken in my frig, well over 10 pounds. I’ll start frying that up in a bit, and we will have it tonight and at least one other night this week.

Speaking of DD#5, she weighed 8 pounds yesterday. You may remember that according to the placenta, her birth weight shoulda been around 8′ 2″. We’ve almost found the rest of the baby! She’s gained three pounds from her lowest weight at 4 days. All that pump, pump, pumping is really paying off!

On the sock front, I now have 4 completed socks that fit the recipients. No pairs yet, but soon, as I am working the mates now. I think I am making fair progress. I had started out planning to work a little on each pair, in rotation, but that got a little crazy, even for me, what with having to move the row counters to different pairs, etc. Since I have a limit on row counters, I’ll just work in blocks of four. And I get a pair in every block, so how cool is that? Bonus: I am making sock recipes for each person as I go. On index cards, of course :)

I did work on my 3×5 box some more on Friday, and it’s finished in the respect that I’ve made cards for what I can think of, though I am sure I will discover more tasks as I go. So, officially, I am saying “I’m back in the box starting tomorrow.” Hold me to it. I hate being bossed around even when I am doing the bossing, even when it’s just index cards in a box.

I reckon I’ll call Mama directly, and have her take a piece of chicken when she goes to see Grandmother tomorrow. She loves her some fried chicken, too.
