I got a letter yesterday from Biruck, one of the kids we sponsor through Compassion. I sent him some money for his 5th birthday and he sent me pictures of his birthday party.
The candle says 4 which sort of confused me at first because I know that he turned 5, but then I learned that in Ethiopia (where he lives) they celebrate the year they just completed as well as being a year older.
Oh! My newest favorite thing.. My Nuwave oven. I gotta tell ya, I love it! I've used it every day since it was delivered. I haven't used my regular oven at all. It makes everything, and super easy. It roasts meat, even from frozen and cooks it perfectly) veggies, and I read that you can bake in it too.
I got an extra one for free when I ordered one so I gave it to Elaine. I don't know if she uses it it as much as I do because she has a big family to cook for and there isn't a ton of room in it, but for just me, sometimes Sky, and sooner or later Clay; it's perfect. It cooks with way less fat, faster, and yummier! (You should check it out Vickie! Lestie too!).
This ends my infomercial.
I'm finally finished with Clay's blanket! Yay!!
Now I only have 3 other projects to finish! Well, at the moment.. I have 2 more I want to start, as soon as I learn Tunesian crochet :)
