How are you all today? I'm doing really well. Yesterday I was suffering the consequences of eating some gluten-filled goodies on Tuesday. I was sick all day Wednesday. Today I'm feeling much better. That experience told me TWO things. One is that no matter how tasty something is, if I know my body can't handle it, I shouldn't eat it. Number Two (and positive aspect) is that the toxicity level in my body is going DOWN. That's why my body had such a strong reaction to the two croissants I ate on Tuesday.
Okay, now to the fun stuff. It has been awhile since I've picked up my knitting needles. When my dad went into the hospital, everything stopped. Oh, my dad is doing so well, now. It is a real miracle. Now I'm feeling ready to start crafting again. You know you are
The next photo is a close-up of the variegated taupe yarn that I'm going to use for my Dad's knee-high socks. Hmm...at this rate, they'll be ready just in time for Christmas 2012 :) :) I've never used this particular yarn before. I just remember purchasing it because the price was extremely affordable:
This next photo is a close-up of the socks that I"m knitting for my aunt. I LOVE knitting socks. It is a fun thing to knit. Plus, it's an extremely affordable project on my "in between jobs" budget:

Now talk about a project taking a long time. I started this quite a fe months ago. I don't even remember when I started this Victorian knitted lace edging, or even why I set the needles down. Now that I'm back to crafting, this will finally get finished. Isn't the pink so pretty?:
Now, my walk-in closet is an absolute M.E.S.S...messy messy messy messy..and I WON"T show a pic of that till after it's looking neat and sparkly again. However, you know you've got it bad, when your craft supplies start spilling over into the closet in the tv room...like this:
That last photo were some craft items that I was going to use to try and make some stuff for the ladies in my Bible study for Valentine's Day. I was stressing out over that...unnecessarily. In the end, I decided to actually finish by lesson on Hebrews instead. The craft projects can wait...and these will eventually turn into a work of art. Oh, and it's NEVER too late to give a Valentine's Gift.
I'm really working on embracing the whole idea of being a Proverbs 31 and Titus 2 lady...oh, make that "single" lady. You know what? These are things that are great for any woman, no matter what your station in life might be. So pray for me, encourage me, and feel free to leave any tips etc here in the comment box ;) :) Also, please check out my sidebar for some links to the various blogs hosting link-ups throughout the week :)
Join me tomorrow for another episode of my "It Makes Cents to Me" Friday :) :) I am looking into subscribing to the local paper, just so I can get the coupon inserts.
It's a beautiful, bright sunny day today. It's also a little chilly outside. Luckily, I'm INSIDE watching episodes of the Canadian tv series "Heartland" on Netflix, and working on this blog post at the same time. That's the news from the ocean shores of California today. Love and hugs, Heather :)
