What am I doing up??????

Haven't the foggiest.  I have been having difficulty quieting my mind to sleep for the last couple of weeks.  Maybe I should see my doctor.  

Anyway, tomorrow is the first meeting of the very small snb group I started.  We will see how long this lasts.  It's basically a group of people from work, getting together to talk and have coffee at the local starbucks.  I hope we stick to it.  They are really cool women, all team leaders at the store, I get along with them well and I think a few of us need an outlet.  We will of course be knitting, or something.  

Making great progress with Cozy.  The socks, um, haven't really done anything with them.  Still just toes.  I am doing a toe-up sock, but I don't have a pattern in mind and I need something simple.  I just purchased Interweave's "Favorite Socks" and I found a pattern in there that might be easy enough (need something challenging, but not frustrating) since it says for beginning sock knitters.  It's top down though.  Hope that doesn't matter.  I guess the lace pattern will be fine, and no one will know but me anyway, so who cares.  
So, that's what's on the needles!

As for what I did today, here is a picture of the cake we (my decorator and I) did for my Store Team Leader's daughter (she's 3 and today was her birthday party).  
The theme was butterflies (bet you couldn't guess that).  
The mom bought in all of these little paper butterflies that she had cut out (better her than me). The cake is peaches and cream (sliced peaches, yellow cake and sweetened whipped cream).  
I did the writting and the design, Bishnu iced the cake.  It was fun.

That cake?? Is amazing!! Celia would have died to see a cake like that at her party! Hmm... maybe for her 4th? ;) You'll probably be seeing me in Feb for that.

Gorgeous cake. All natural, right? LOL

Sorry that you aren't sleeping well and can't seem to quiet your mind. That is hell because it becomes a vicious circle.
