what is happening to my camera?!?!

all my pics are blurry or rather more like "dusty" looking. i bought my camera back in january, and it was both highly rated/not cheap, so this should not be happening. maybe the lens is just dirty? i might have to find a camera shop around here where i can bring it in. argh!

this morning's less-than-crisp photo:

stove-top oats:
  • 1/3 c oats, 1/3 c water, 1/3 c vanilla soymilk
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1 T flax
  • 1/2 walnut-date kind bar
  • heaping tsp pumpkin butter
  • big spoonful almond butter

and cherries!

mmmm i . i just wish you could choose how much you wanted to buy, rather than having to buy a pre-measured bag, because the bags are usually huge! they were on sale for $4.99/lb yesterday at whole foods, and i tried to find a smallish bag, but it still ended up costing $7. that's a whole lotta cherries! but somehow i think i'll manage .

so i've found my next next crochet project! ha! this was in the new SPRING issue of interweave crochet (i really need to get a subscription). i "borrowed" the magazine from the store last night to look through. i love this pattern-- simple but unique.

ha, and the model is wearing SEVENS (jeans). see, crochet + fashion really do mix!!!

i found this next pic online-- someone who already made it! i absolutely adore it in red, so i am going to look for a similar yarn. although i won't be starting this for a while... i'm only about 1/3 to 1/2way through my current sweater...

dEnTiSt this afternoon! i would be très nervous but since i went 6 months ago and didn't have any cavities/damage, i'm not too scared... overall i've been much much (much) healthier than in the past, and i don't think intermittent symptoms would have caused any damage. i'm so thankful that i was blessed with strong teeth... i have no clue how i escaped any damage given how active my disorder has been at times over the years. expect a full report later!


  1. woah, i had the dentist this week, too! no cavities = YAY!

    i LOOOOOOVE that sweater. i am going to be jealous when you make it!

  2. I love the sweater and want to learn how to make this stuff ASAP. How cute is all that and costs a fortune in the store. How much would the supplies cost to make that? I might take this up considering how cute everything is!

  3. love the sweater, and yum to almond butter and pumpkin butter!

  4. hey susie,

    depends on the quality of the yarn... i'm a "yarn snob" and won't use the stuff at michael's. the good stuff runs usually from $5-$10 a ball, and a sweater will use anywhere from 8-12 balls (usually!). so it's not a cheap craft. i'd say $60/sweater is probably about right.

  5. hmmmm. knowing the price, I might stick to laziness but I guess it's a fun hobby too! and must be nice to wear something you created
