I spend a decent amount of time counting things down:
- How much time until someone gets home from hockey so that I know when to start and finish dinner
- How long until knitting night
- How long until coffee cake comes out of the oven
And today I found out that there are 50 days until Christmas. We do some kind of count down calendar thing very year with some measure of success and I’m trying again this year. I’m making felt calendars for both boys like the one over at The Purl Bee – my pockets are only a single color (not double layers) and my friend Sarah drew the numbers on for me with chalk because my strengths lie elsewhere. I’ve finished all the embroidering for Thing 1’s calendar and I’m almost to half way with Thing 2’s. I need to get that finished (but knitting gets in the way). And, I need to come up with a list of things to put in the pockets. What are your great advent/count down calendar fillers?
