What Resolutions?

Ok, so one of my New Years resolutions was to be a better blogger and as you can see, I'm failing miserably. I can't believe my last post was on the 3rd of January (actually I can believe it, I'm not the best at keeping New Years resolutions). One resolution that I have kept however, is to try and bake more often and so far I have tried something new every week. To date, I have made the following:

Week 1: Banana Choc Chip Muffins (from scratch)
Week 2: Oatmeal Craison Cookies
Week 3: Brownies


One reason that I haven't posted (and unfortunately it's not because I've been too busy), is that when I've sat down at the computer the batteries for the camera haven't been charged (and trust me, I think my posts are a lot more interesting when I have photos to share). So the batteries are charging as I write and hopefully I will have some photos for you tomorrow. I've done quite a bit of knitting over the past few weeks (hey, it's been cold - perfect knitting weather) so I have some of my first finished projects for 2007. On the needles at the moment, I have my 2nd jaywalker sock, a hat and a cardigan. The cardigan was put in the naughty drawer for a few weeks after I became too annoyed with myself and the pattern. However, we made up on the weekend and are now in the process of completing the first sleeve.

In other news, we have had even more snow, though no where near as much as the 1 1/2 feet we received over New Years. Now the snow seems to have disappeared but we've we've been left with freezing temperatures - not ideal when the heater decides not to work every so often. Trust me, there have been a couple of early nights in bed with the electric blanket on!

We went to the movies a couple of weeks ago and saw "The Pursuit of Happyness" which was fantastic. I thought Wil Smith did a great job and was glad to see he has been nominated for an Oscar for it.

Our last piece of exciting news is that Elton John is coming to Albuquerque! Yes, you read it correctly - Elton John is coming to Albuquerque and we have tickets!!!!!! I can't wait, the concert should be excellent and it is in a relatively small stadium so we should have great seats. I think I'll go and get in the mood and listen to some Elton now. He has so many great songs, I'm not sure if I can pick a favourite - Your Song, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, Rocket Man, Bennie and the Jets, Honky Cat....

    Yeah, that is the reason I don't really make New Year's resolutions anymore!

    Can't wait to see the handknits - even the troublemaker!
