That face, that face, that beautiful face!!  On Sunday our beautiful new great-grandson weighed in at 8 pounds 9 ounces, and with the face of an angel.   All the babies on our side of the family were big babies, ranging from 8 pounds all the way to 10 pounds .  Bryce Robinson Ryan Pryor is here and there are a lot of happy people loving him right now!!  I could just sit and look at his picture for hours, and wish I could hold him.  They are not in Texas and I am so ready to take a trip.

Knitting has been moving along.  The first double moss stitch wristlet is finished and the second well on the way.  I’m still working on the yellow socks—wow have I been knitting on those things for a long time.  I knit and knit and look down and the sock is the same as it was when I started.  Do you ever have that happen to you?  A project defies wrap-up.  I’m working with my Knit Picks Harmony double points and I think the sock loves them as much as I do and won’t let them go!

Do you grate your own cheese?  I spent an hour last night grating cheese.  It is not the easiest thing in the world, although it is easier if you use a mandolin slicer/grater.  We don’t like the taste of the cheese you buy already shredded!  I think it has a plastic taste.  So last night I grated cheddar, jack, mozzarella and swiss and put them in containers to sprinkle on and in most anything from soup to baked potatoes.  DH likes a lunch of a tortilla spread with black beans, onions, grated cheese and salsa, rolled and warmed enough to melt the cheese.  Sometimes I put spinach on it or a little fried peppered bacon.  Yum!! 

Life is good!

SUCH HAPPY NEWS . I love the name Bryce!

Interesting thoughts on the shredded cheeses. Perhaps the air gets at all the sides of the shredded pieces and effects taste. OUr farmers market has the BEST wisconsin cheese farmers. I can't wait for their return at the end of june!

Bryce is beautiful! Local friends (a firefighter and his wife) have a Brycen whom I call Bryce... because I like the name and they tolerate it.

We grate our own cheese too. Same reasons, and commercial grated cheese is often "coated" in corn starch which is a no-no for Sissy, who believes dairy makes the world go 'round.

Bryce is adorable: I hope you get to see him soon.

Sometimes, I grate my own cheese, but not often enough.
