Pink Socks, Part 2: It’s a pair!

March 26th 2008 by Jen in Knitting 3

So two Sunday nights ago, I finished the second pink sock.  It was exciting because it felt like the first “real” thing I’ve ever knitted, even though that’s ridiculous because I’ve knitted scarves, washcloths, a toddler poncho, baby booties and a hat, fingerless gloves, a stocking cap, and whatever else I can’t think of right [...]

Note to self: the Stain Stick rescue operation

March 25th 2008 by Jen in Randomness 0

I was doing laundry yesterday and while getting a dryer sheet, I fumbled the Stain Stick and knocked it back behind the washer and dryer.  I contemplated just leaving it there until we move (could be years!) and just buying a new one, but I really like my washer and dryer, they are new and [...]

March 7th 2008 by Dan in Uncategorized 2

I’m sure that most of us who are fans of John Piper have been all too disappointed to find a book like 90 Minutes in Heaven next to his on the shelves of many bookstores. Just the thought of someone mistaking this book, which obviously consists of not a few theological errors, with one of [...]
