First up is Sandy with her Larger Than Life Bag. If memory serves,
Cindy has been working on this afghan for almost two years. Her rule was she had to finish all the squares of each color before she could move on to another color. Sometimes, we got bored with the colors before she did. But, oh my - look:
And look closer:
And even closer:
OK, so back to the red scarf. You may remember seeing it here a while back. For our holiday gathering, we decided that instead of purchasing gifts, we would exchange something from our lives that we were ready to part with. I really struggled with this but I knew in my heart what I had to do. The red scarf, which is the first item I made from my very own hand spun yarn, started out as a gift for someone but I just couldn't part with it. I wasn't ready to give it to someone who wouldn't "get it." When the Knitting Group gift exchange came up - it was clear. I didn't know who would receive it, but I knew that whoever did, they would "get it".
I realize that these are really crappy pictures - but you all know the sentiment I'm trying to convey. We take such great joy in each other's accomplishments. There was such a buzz in the coffee shop as everything was displayed and "oooohed" and "ahhhhed" over. I could have stayed all day!

This morning at breakfast, with her puffy eyes, studying for a science quiz, her spirits seemed a little bit better. But I can't help but

Because right now - it's bed time. If Monday is a day off for you, enjoy some snuggle time with someone (or something furry!) that you love. I know I will be.

The way I see it, if my feet look good, then they'll feel good. If they feel good, that will start a whole chair reaction of "good feelingness" that will eventually send this sinus thing packin'.

I remembered how I used to play the song over and over again as a young girl, probably about her age. We'd listen to the lyrics and try to figure out what they all meant. We wrote them all down, line by line, and thought we had it all figured out - the whole thing. Life! Figured out there on paper, through the lyrics of a song.
And then, I wished I was young again.

Now we just have a few close friends over. So close in fact, we don't mind that the laundry is on the floor. Neither do they.
Super Bowl Sunday used to mean tons of chips and dips and junk food and chicken wings and good stuff!
Now it's a simple dinner of Chicken Stroganoff, broccoli and biscuits.
And oh, the drinks - the beer, the wine, the cocktails - the hangover!
Replaced by milk and water.
