YAY!! It's Thursday... that means tomorrow's Friday!

Most boring knit EVER. But it will be cute in the end. I still have to find the contrasting yarn for the trim and the buttons. I'll take a look for that stuff today at the LYS when I go to pick up my yarn for Sizzle.

This has been the most boring week. I'll be glad when it's over. It's been full of meetings, obligations, and nothing much fun at all. I'm really missing the beach. Every year around this time I just want to go to the beach. In my next life, I swear, it's going to be all beach, all the time.

I'm thinking of taking a little road trip to Ligonier on August 5th. I almost have DH talked into making a day of it.. visiting the Shanksville 911 memorial, Somerset outlets, Fort Ligonier... (then yarn shop... should I tell him????) then ending up at the Ligonier Valley Country Inn (if they have a room) Has anyone ever been there??? It looks so cute.

My back is killing me since I finished PT. Have I been doing my exercises as prescribed? Noooo. I really need to get on that. I'm SO bad about it. I'll sit and knit for hours but I can't talk myself into doing a few exercises for 20 minutes that will free me from excruciating pain. Go figure.

I made just about the best and easiest cake in the world last weekend. It was AWESOME. Need an easy dessert? Try this:

Bake a devil's food cake (mix) - poke holes in it immediately after removing from oven and then pour a can of sweetened condensed milk on top. Let cool completely.

After completely cool, spread with Marzetti's Caramel Apple Dip. On top of that, spread cool whip. Sprinkle with Heath Bar or Skor candy bar pieces. (These actually come in a bag in the cake mix/baking section of the supermarket) Very Yummy for sure.

I have MADE that cake! It is yummy. I highly recommend the visit to Ligonier...I do, I do! I can't tell you a thing about the Inn, but there's the yarn shop..and you know, it's just a stone's throw to Greensburg and Knit Wits....
