I told myself I would blog something today, so even if I don't get to my list of crafts to finish at least I got one thing done! Kyle has been doing well on his eating habits (me, not so much!) and mentioned that his Muscle and Fitness magazine had some kind of article on Oats and how good they are for you. I like oatmeal alright, but its a difficult sell to a Toddler. So I thought about my Finnish days: breakfast was usually Makkara (Finnish sausage more like pate) on Rye, Weetabix, or yoghurt with granola. I have recently rediscovered that I LOVE yogurt and granola! So, I Googled 'homemade granola' and found all kinds of recipes. The one I chose has cinnamon, honey, brown sugar, salt then I add a nut (Walnuts in this case) and raisins. Now if only I could purchase yogurt here like they have in Finland, its much less sweet and I really liked it better that way.

Still in the works on that Maternity top from a recycled shirt of Kyle's. I bought

Design-It-Yourself Clothes: Patternmaking Simplified by Cal Patch yesterday (Potter Craft, 2009). Apparently Cal was a designer for Urban-outfitters, so I'm excited to delve into this one. She warns in the first few pages that if you don't follow from beginning to end, you may have to jump back to beginning projects to complete a project later in the book. That bummed me out, because the first pattern is for a skirt. Let's face it, I'm a huge whale right now and no one wants to see ME in a skirt. Oh, the joys of pregnancy!! Perhaps I'll focus on baby girl clothes, lol.
