Holy Cow...Thats what I keep saying over and over again. The selling group that I joined is doing amazingly well and if you all havent checked it out, you really should pop over to www.primitivehandmadesmercantile.com . You have until the 27th to sign up for an AWESOME giveaway with LOTS of yummy prim items donated by several of the artists. Just look at all the primilicious things you could win !!!
I have already sold all four of my hooked hearts with the old keys...happy dance time ,which is not a pretty sight really...that 15 pounds I packed on over the last few months jiggles around and could possibly hurt someone and is soooooo unattractive ! Dont you just hate when you roll over in bed and your tummy hits the mattress with a "thud" and you hear the sloshing sound of , well, I am not sure actually what makes that sounbd, but you know what I mean ??? What ? That never happens to anyone but me ? Well, ok it might just be me...oh, if I could just stop eating chocolate or adding homemade whipped cream to my daily coffee or end my torrid love affair with cheese...Cheese...there isnt a cheese I dont love. I actually had to talk to myself, OUTLOUD, at the grocery store last night when I saw this roquefort colby blend on sale. I almost had to yell at myself since it was close to $30.00 per pound...I kept trying to do the math in my head to figure out what it would cost to just buy a sliver...Finally summed up the courage to walk away, well truth be told, I kind of jogged, (which I feel should actually count as exercise) because I knew if I stayed one more second I would pick up the cheapest package they had on hand ($9.50) and eat in all on the way home (what ? you never ripped open a package of cheese in the car or, like me, in the parking lot ??? Well thats just sad).
Thank heaven I found the strength to resist THAT temptation though, because I fell victim to the the subtle seduction of the York Peppermint Patty calling my name at the checkout stand fulfilling my desire for something yummy . It actually brought a double wammy of contentment since it was only fifty cents (in my mind I just saved $9) and it is the candy bar with the least amount of fat & calories !!!
Well if I could give up my food obsessions I could probably lose 50 pounds, but seriously, what kind of life would that be ??? A life without chocolate, whipped cream or cheese ??? Dont even get me started on butter or gravy...YUM ! Well for me it would be devastating...These items fill a deep hole inside me, they nurture me...NOT, no they dont ! I just LOVE good food. I could/should/will totally learn to live a life of moderation...someday. For now I will cut back the whipped cream in my coffee..its a baby step that I can manage !
OK, OK, I guess I should get serious here for a minute. It is finally snowing here in western PA and I couldn't be more excited....I love the snow !!! It finally feels like winter has arrived. So I am nestled in and doing the last of my wool dyeing and I decided to do a clearance sale of sorts on much of the wool bundles I have already listed to make it easier to clear out room for all those new yummy wool bundles I have been working on over the last several days/weeks. So pop over to my "Wool For Sale" page and look for the items in RED for savings. Also, if you purchase, please, please send me your shipping address when you order so I can invoice you MUCH more quickly.
Well ladies, I am off check the tv and see who is in the lead in the South Carolina primary race and grab some lunch. Obviously I have made myself hungry...I am thinking fresh mozzarella cheese layered on top of a slices of tomato, atop some crusty homemade ciabatta bread and then broiled to crisp perfection then slathered with a little homemade basil mayo...Oh YUM !!!
Until next time,
Grace to you,
