Rain Rain Go Away

Or I will....and Jon too. We woke up to this wind damage today. It has been raining hard for 3 days - even the Today show highlighted the northwest today. This is perfect knitting weather. I just can't figure out what to make. I have two babies on the way. Our friends Dave and Tina had a girl this weekend, my friend Karen had a boy in May and my cousin is expecting in April. What to make what to make....

Dubai is a go - maybe - we'll know for sure on Wednesday at 6PM. New job is also a go which makes Dubai complicated??!! I'm headed to Lexington - KITCAT party at our house!!!

Adult Windows

Style comes and goes. Target was once world class, then fabric from Bed Bath and Beyond! Now, clean and sleek plantation blinds. They look awesome! We still have to paint ( and should've before we installed...but we won't go there...) They look incredible. The walls are still bright white and I want to paint it back to the pearl white original color. The blinds are pearl white and really match all the other trim well.

It took 8 weeks for these to arrive. I'm told they came direct from China - and I believe it. I got them from The prices beat 3 day blinds, Costco, Home Depot and American Blinds big time. You have to install yourself, pay upfront and cross your fingers everything works out - but in this case everything is fine. Now I plan to measure my downstairs windows and get those on order.
