Random Website Monday

Knitting: started a pair of mittens on Saturday. (They were supposed to be for Kazul- well they will fit a child!) I will continue to knit these and finish them up.
Specifics: size US8 DPN and Lion Brand Jiffy yarn. Super easy!

What did I do today? Made 2 loaves of Hawaiian Sweet bread in bread machine. First on didn't rise- so made another. The second one rose and was devoured in 2 hours after being baked!
2 1/4 c flour
2 T powdered milk
1/2 t salt
2 1/2 T vegetable oil
2 T honey
1 1/2 T coconut milk
2/3 C pineapple juice
1 egg
1 1/2 t yeast
Baked on Bake light setting (I will have to reverify- but I don't think that I forgot anything)

The rest of day was spent sleeping in until 9:30, knitting, dishes, and 7 loads of laundry (did 5 complete, 1 still in washer and 1 in dryer).
Training tonight out at the pool. From 6- 9 that is a long one, Bumpkins went to DM's. Saw one car flipped upside and about 10 ft. off of the road. That one hurt!

So now I am tired.. but will post the:
Random website: With publicity like this the knitting community just might vote Obama in as our next president.

Weather: this am was -20 (some people were saying -30... BRRR!) it has since warmed up to 3 above and is snowing. North Kenai already has 2 inches, my house... 1/2 in. We will see if the forecasters are right- they are calling for 6-8 inches of snow.

Mom, if you ever get to meet Obama and the only thing you do is ask him to hold your knitting, I would absolutely die!
