How To Achieve Inner Peace

I am passing this on to all of you because it definitely works, and we all could use a little more calmness in our lives. By following simple advice heard on the Dr. Phil show, you too can find inner peace.
Dr. Phil proclaimed, "The way to achieve inner peace is to finish all the things you have started and never finished."
So, I looked around my house to see all the things I started and hadn't finished, and before leaving the house this morning, I finished off a bottle of Merlot, a bottle of White Zinfadel, a bottle of Baileys Irish Cream, a bottle of Kahlua, a package of Oreos, the remainder of my old Prozac prescription, the rest of the cheesecake, some Doritos and a box of chocolates. You have no idea how freaking good I feel!!!
Feel free to pass this on to those whom you think might be in the need for some inner peace.

Cozy and Wavy

Well, I just got done typing a post and Blogger again has eaten it. Bad Blogger!! So, here I go again.

I currently have two projects that I am working on and they are both from The first I began a few weeks ( and posts ) ago, that one is Wavy and I am doing it in Noro Kureyon color #70.
I am liking the way it is turning out and I believe that this one will be for ME.
The second project on the needles is Cozy ( a shawl) also from I have some Schaefer Yarns Marjaana in colorway Indira Gandhi that has been in my stash for at least two years, I adore this yarn ( 50 merino -- 50 tussah silk ) and have been waiting for the *right* pattern for it. Well, Cozy it is!! I have only knitted about 4-6 inches of it, but quickly pinned it out a bit so as you all can see the pattern... I have never worn a shawl before but I believe I will enjoy this one!! The pattern repeat is easy to memorize so it is also enjoyable to work on.

Busy, busy, that is how things have been here lately. Which is why I am tardy on my Saturday Sky!! I have been trying to organize my house which is quite a task!! I think I should have bought stock in Rubbermaid as I have made 7 trips to Wal-Mart buying' umpteem' storage containers..The Big Ones!!!! Next week I am going to attempt the attic...which I have not ventured up into in the last 5 years....I know I have coats that were my Mom's and clothing that I have not seen in at least 10 years, plus Daughter's college notebooks, etc, etc. I think I will be making lots of donations to the Salvation Army or local charities. Can't wait to get it all done. Eldest daughter, Amanda, has been helping me, partially because she feels sorry for me and partially because she needs to go through her things as she is moving right after Christmas. At almost 27 years old she will have her MPA this spring ( only one more course to go ) and she needs to find an internship. She and friend, just completed a month long trip of the USA and they have decided that, of all the places they spent time in, they would like to settle in Bolder, Colorado. Good for them!!! Hey, gives me a good place to vacation :)))

Here are my Saturday Sky photos a little late....

Red Scarf Project

Here are a few better photos of the Red Scarf project that I completed a few weeks ago... for some reason it is very difficult to photograph RED it seems to want to come up as a pink...contrary to what you see, it is a deep red with tweeding. I have 3 skeins of Cascade 220 in a brilliant red that I am going to make a second scarf for this project, still cannot decide on pattern though, at this time I am considering The Besotted Scarf pattern. Who knows, by next week I may change my mind on pattern choice!!

Hearth Cooking Class!

While at *the lake* this weekend I took a Hearth Cooking Class ...what fun , there were 7 of us, including our hostess, Sally. The food was wonderful. Ironically, I, -the only vegetarian in the class- was the one who carved most of the turkey.
