Not Half Bad

Well, my husband seems thoroughly impressed with his wife's ability to transform cinnamon raisin bagels into something tasty. That's right. Even with the cinnamon, he has proclaimed them a success. And, he's right, if I do say so myself. I think I'm allowed to say so, too, since the success of the bagels is more related to the recipe than to me. I'm just capable of properly executing instructions in recipes. Very yummy. I'm happy I decided to go for those when I couldn't make the donuts I so longed for. They were certainly a nice breakfast to start the day with. They have to be healthier than the donuts would have been, too. I only wish I could offer you a photo to drool over, because they are quite pretty, but, alas, my batteries have mysteriously not yet made there way back from the charger. Well, actually I do have just one other wish - cream cheese. I'll have to get some later.

Oh, and speaking of mysteries...

Last night I sat down with the pink sweater I've been gradually knitting for Lambchop #1. She's been begging me for it lately, and I've been making some slow progress in the evenings. I was about to the point where I needed to start my decreases for the deep v-neckline. I'm not using a pattern, so I just needed the other half of the front of the sweater. Simple, right? Apparently not. I have searched high and low around here, and it's nowhere to be found. I'm quite baffled, and extremely irritated, since that's the harder part of the sweater to make. I can't continue on without it, but at the same time, I hesitate to start it anew, for fear that the naughty little thing will pop up just when I'm almost finished with the new one. So, for now, I remain baffled. Later on, I'll check the car to see if it may have fallen out of my purse somewhere. I don't really see how it could have, but you just never know, and I did think I had put it in there to work on it at playgroup. So, big frowny face for now.
