I kick it Continental Style

Thursdays start my weekend, so in honor of another week of a job well done, I give you the "Cocktail Of The Week". I will post new drinks every Thursday in lieu of "Self-Portrait Tuesdays" (not much to see here) or "Favorite Food Fridays" (remember I'm domestically challenged). I hope you'll take some time to mix up a cocktail, put on your favorite tunes, chill, and enjoy all that is good around you. This one's dedicated to all the Continental knitters out there, you know who you are. Cheers!

The Continental

2 teaspoons lime juice
1/2 teaspoon sugar
45 ml white rum
crushed ice
15 ml green creme de menthe

Mix the lime juice with the sugar & white rum in an old fashioned glass. Half fill the glass with crushed ice & pour in the the creme de menthe. Stir gently to combine.

That there's a rhythym in your heart and soul
A certain rhythm that you can't control
And you will do the Continental all the time

-Frank Sinatra

Father forgive me...

It's been 10 days since my last confession - er um I mean post. To avoid the unbearable backlash from fellow bloggers (Violet) whom I constantly beg to update their blogs, I'm dropping mad rhymes posts to keep in good standing. It's been an interesting week, emotions running the gamut of depressed and pensive to overjoyed and validated. Maybe I'm just PMS-ing! Nonetheless, I want to give a shout out to my peeps and wish you all a fabulous day. The sun is shining and Ella Fitzgerald is playing in the background. I can't give you anything but love...

Welcome Aboard!

FIRST STOP: Procrastination Station . One of many hopes for this blog is to help me complete projects. I am the queen of procrastination. I could blame this on the fact that I am the mommy of a very active 4-year old (ballet, birthday parties, playdates), that I work full-time, that my commute takes me over an hour each way (although it's only 20 miles away), that I like to stay somewhat social (1 knitting group, 2 bunco groups, lunch & dinner dates with friends, etc.), and I love to spend family time with my FAMILY! But I digress. I find time to knit somewhere, somehow just about everyday. The problem I have is finishing. Some refer to me as the Project Ho-a starter of many projects, finisher of few! So here it is, a little preview to some of the projects I've started, and will eventually need to finish:
