Today I bought the June issue of Good Housekeeping. Oh how I would love to have a porch like this ...
instead the poor plants on my balcony are barely able to survive these weather conditions. The dust is back full force today and that makes me blue.
On page 199 of the June Good Housekeeping there is sweet Annie who made bracelets to collect money for Haiti. No matter how many times I read her story, I am always inspired.
This granny stripe afghan was inspired by Lucy at Attic 24. She posted the pattern here and I used the yarn I received from Jodie several months ago.
It was very easy to make. Next time, I will mix up the colors a little more. The color pattern on this one is just too perfect for my liking.
Over the weekend, there was something that I LIKED just a little too much.
A good friend at school sent me home Thursday with homemade toffee. I lost count of how many pieces I ate. I just know I had major toffee overload.
And on Saturday, I baked oatmeal chocolate chip cookies at the request of son no. 2. They were really, really good and I did not eat just three. I did have three glasses of milk to go along with ALL the cookies I ate. Sometimes you just gotta give in to your cravings! I think I'm still feeling the affects of all that sugar.
I think it's time to go and create something. Hope your day is filled with sweet blessings! Have a great week! Tammy
