Squares, Scones, and... Glasses

I have been making more squares lately, for Knit A Square; since I finished my sweater. (The sweater was for EEROP- although I do want to knit that sweater for Knit A Square, too.)  Okay, lets' see. The primary colored and lavender/green squares on the left are Lazy Sunday square. It's a free Ravelry download. The lavender and pink bear square is the Square Bear Square pattern.  The Aruba Sea flower squares are Framing a Flower square, with two inches added on to make them eight inches.  The two on the right are plain garter stitch squares. Had to add a row of crocheting around the blue one, to make it eight inches.  That's ten squares. I think that will be enough to make a package (plus I have a sweater to send, too.)  I am thinking postage is going to be high, to Africa. So I think I will send smaller packages. :)

And I have been baking again... :)  Mostly because "There's nothing to eat..."   (According to the kids, lol..) Plus I was having a major craving for scones, and I almost can't eat them without lemon curd, now. (Unless they are chocolate chip scones-these are raisin.)  I want to try making devonshire cream to go with chocolate chip scones.  I went shopping today, and got stuff to make it. Like I said, these are raisin scones.  I used a recipe from a Taste of Home cookbook. This recipe is exactly the same! And I got the recipe for the lemon curd here. Which was from taste of home, what a coincidence..  I also did not use any lemon peel, since I didn't have any. And it still came out great.  I also cooked it on low, I didn't even turn it on high. And it didn't curdle as much as usual. So. Cool..

And... Guess who had to get glasses?....  Me.   I have been having a hard time seeing lately. Everything is blurry. I can only see out of one eye, as it is; so I was getting kind of scared. Especially when driving, that's when I really notice it the most- and it's scary.  So, I went to the eye doctor.   I only needed a "mild" prescription, but boy does it help a LOT. I can see!... :D   But I'm not supposed to wear them while using the computer or reading. (Or crocheting or knitting.)
