mishmash.

How about another jumble of photos from the last week? I’m writing this from my parents’ kitchen table, mug of coffee in hand, Boh curled up on a blanket on the floor nearby, cardinals at the bird feeder. We’re gearing up to head back to the lake house, where there’s still a lot of work to do before we get to return here for Christmas. I didn’t even bring any knitting with me on this trip. Instead, I graded, and read, and caught up on my to-do list. Once I’m back home, I’m hoping to get some writing done. Let’s see what I photographed with my phone this week:

New shoes. Booties, even. I have some straight-leg skinny-ish jeans that don’t really work with my boots. Not skinny enough to wear boots over them, and not wide enough to comfortably get the boots under them. These were affordable (over at ideeli DOT com, which I’ve had some good luck with), and I liked the gray color. They look great with pants, but I’m not sure I really know how to wear them as booties. Like this, maybe? Thank you for any and all fashion advice.

Writing. With peanut butter popcorn.

Boh guards the popcorn.

Another Dutch baby pancake — I made this one before heading to campus early on Monday morning. I can’t believe how easy and tasty this is. (And I don’t want to know how not good for me it might be to start eating a plate-sized pancake every morning…)

J’s mitts in action! I snapped this photo after we had lunch together on Monday. Aren’t they terrific?!

Boh, in full-on charmer mode here at my parents’ house. I love how he’s got that circular dog bone on his arm.

And that’s what we’ve got. Happy weekend — and knitting — to you!

  1. Don’t you love holidays? I had all my children and grandchildren here for a few days. One is still here, working away from my kitchen table. But (like your mom, I’m sure) I’m happy to have her here even when she must be attached to the laptop.

  2. ooh, i like your booties. i like them how you styled them, but i also tend to like them with bare legs and skirts… or colored tights. those mitts turned out great! congratulations to your friend!

  3. I really like those shoes! I think they’d look great with some black sweater tights, and because they’re pretty classic you could even get away with patterned tights or colored ones! booties and tights are one of my favorite combinations, with dresses or tunics or skirts :)

  4. I wear my booties with long jeans when I want to look dressier…keeps the hem from dragging. Otherwise I have been putting them with skinny jeans, black pencil pants, and black tights with an office dress. I splurged on mine and initially felt guilty, then started to wear them all the time and was thankful I went for it. I love yours!

  5. Booties! They are awesome. As for styling … I like what you’ve got going on with the tunic. And I’m with all the votes for tights, skirts, and booties!
