a long day :(

well, mary got me up again this morning to watch for the bus for daniel and get him on it... being in preschool, he has to be escorted to it and picked up from it every day he goes... it was cold this morning, too. we had a hard freeze last night and frost on the ground... will be glad when it warms up again :)

then went to town with bev... got a couple things we needed :) tonight i made bbq pork from the loin i cooked yesterday and simmered it all afternoon in the crock pot in bbq sauce that i doctored up with coke :) was yum... then made twice baked potatoes with shredded cheese and bacon in them :) had sour cream, cheese, and ham bits for toppings :) were yum too :) daniel didn't want to pork, so i took some honey mustard dressing and put it over some of the chicken strips i baked up yesterday and baked it in... was good too :)

mary and robert decided to go to arma and rent a couple movies, so they brought me back a fountain drink and lottery ticket for keeping an eye on daniel while they went... after the pain he was this afternoon for me, it took a bribe for me to watch him for that little bit :) was good, too, cos the ticket won $5 :) haven't won anything in a while, so was happy... got Sonic money tomorrow when i go to town :) hehehe do love their cherry dr peppers, although i normally drink pepsi :)

was election day here for our local offices... i went to vote early this morning... was 27th voter... overall, we only had a little over 100 who voted :) but hey, we're a small town :) looks like we're keeping our mayor and a couple firefighters might be on the council :) will be an interesting couple years around here...

after making my first baby bonnet, am busy working away making one to match the dress that mary gave her co-worker a couple wks ago :) have crystal butterflies, so i can put one of them in the middle of the flower on the side of the hat :) hope it works out well... melissa said her aunt wants me to make 4 dresses and hats for one of her nephews who is expecting a girl later in the year... and then there's the ones i need to make for the church bazaar.. .might just make bonnets for them and barbie dresses... haven't made up my mind yet :) depends on whether they will provide the materials for me to use :)

well, it's getting close to time for "Chopped" on food network, so guess i will end this for now and get back to the bonnet :) if i work on it for a couple more hours, i might have it finished for her in the morning, instead of thurs morn :) have voted for my idol choice and now just have to wait till tomorrow to see how it goes :) night, my friends :)
