january thirty

I got a nice package in the mail today from my Fave Things Swap Pal. She sent me her fave things, and in it there was some Green Tea (which I'm a huge fan of lately) and Drops Alapaca Sock Yarn. It's soooo freakin' soft, I love it. I had no idea that Drops made yarn, but I've knitted their patterns before. I got stitch markers, a bath bomb (never used one before) and some chocolate that I'm sure Jamie will eat. (I'm not a huge fan of chocolate, and I'm currently watching what I'm eating - more details about that another time).

Today I got great progress on my Step-Mother-in-Law's Striped Modular Vest, but it's not that striped, so it'll be her Varigated Modular Vest then! She picked the yarn and the color, so that's what she wanted. Seems like this will be a super fast knit, I'm certainly not complaining. I'm sure it'll be a fast knit. It's her birthday present from this past December, so I better get cracking! (Had some other deadlines to finish first).

Mack tried strawberries today for the first time and loved them. Probably because they're sweet. He devoured almost an entire jar. Mack's been doing pretty good with the food eating thing. We have a check-up next Friday with his doctor, I'm hoping by then he has gained weight from the last check-up and is back on track in the percentile for his age. He had gone from being born in the 10th percentile, to being in the 25th percentile, to back by 6 months of age into the 10th percentile. I'm not sure what's up with that, but I'm hoping now that he's eating more solids, that he's back on track. We'll see next Friday!

Tonight we had 2 of Jamie's ex-co-workers over for a 5 à 7. (Though, they arrived closer to 6pm). We had prepared veggies and dip and Jamie made 2 rounds of Nachos. We had wine and beer and even some scotch (not for me thank you!). It was nice. They ended up staying past 9pm, and it was great catching up with them and shooting the shit. I did get to work on a bit of the vest while they were here, while we chatted. It was really good conversation, and both boys behaved themselves very well tonight. I was very impressed. They both even went to bed at a reasonable time, together (in their respective rooms).

Not sure what the plans for tomorrow day are besides having to do a huge postal run, but tomorrow night we have my sister-in-law's 30th birthday dinner at my in-laws with all my in-laws. (Jamie's dad, step-mom, Jamie's mom & her wife). It'll be nice to see my nephew as well, it's been since his birthday since I've seen him last. I'm sure there will be knitting time!
