October 12th

Where has this extra long weekend gone? Sat. turned out to be a very nice day. I did a workshop for a group I work with and my topic was revitalization. We had a very nice group and we worked on aspects of how to take care of our own energy. We did a few activities that worked out well. Made dream pillows, almond scrub and bath soaks. Everyone enjoyed it except one man who it seems to me has made a decision never to enjoy anything.

When I got home my friend's husband was working on the bathroom leak which was fixed without the maximum trouble. I still need a new ceiling and so far all they did to the car was reset the engine light . So I'll still have to see on that one. But I did get to spend the weekend with old friends and ALL my ironing is done.

I've been feeling overwhelmed by worry about finances and the political situation and I've made a decision that I'm going to limit my watching on CNN and news shows. I feel that they are just fanning these anxious feeling in me without really doing any thing positive. Right after 911 I did the same thing. So I'll watch the debate on Wed but I will not watch the endless picking apart of it!

I'm just about at the neckline of the gansey but I made a mistake in the pattern and had to redo three rows. My daughter got me hooked on Trueblood a vampire series on HBO. I never thought it would have interested me, parts of it really don't but somehow I messed up the THIRD repeat of the yolk pattern while I was watching it.
I hope to start the neckline decreases and shoulder part tonight.

You have been busy, as usual!

It sounds like you have been doing some fun and interesting things. Good for you!!!!

I absolutely never watch TV except for hockey games! I do agree that the media gets a bit carried away. Proof is look at how they put their reporters out in the weather when a hurricane is predicted. It is totally shameless. I nearly cracked up when I watched a reporter wallking along the street, dragging his heels to make it look like there was a lot of water in the street. Or, how about Geraldo holding his hand over his face, saying the rain was stinging his face. GOOD GRIEF! He had a hood on his jacket, but never put it up.

Yeah, now you see WHY I do not watch television! Mark and the kids can enjoy it, but not me!

My father-in-law always was into stocks and bonds. He always told Mark to just watch, everything will rise up after a tumble. Mark is totally conservative and would probably be more inclined to stuff his mattress than invest. Me? I am totally clueless!!!!!
